Atwater Craft Beer Buzz - April 18

Greetings craft beer folks! Vail Mountain’s last day for the 2011 – 2012 season was Sunday, and we ushered out the season with a ton of fresh snow….go figure! I think it’s supposed to be 60 degrees all week now, so it will likely be officially Spring here by the weekend.

At the Vail Cascade we’re switching into off-season mode, and will be offering our small plates, dinner and craft beer programs in Fireside Bar¬†from 5 – 10pm until June 1 when Atwaterreopens for dinner… just in time for the Teva Games our next Brewmaster’s weekend! So mark your calendars for the Crazy Mountain & Bonfire weekend June 1st & 2nd, and I’ll keep you posted with specific details when they are nailed down.

In the meantime, we are still offering our Craft Draft Flights, Craft for a Crowd and Friday Night Flights throughout. The craft beer list will continue to rotate and we’ll have cool new stuff coming on as we run out of what’s on the list.

Last week we brought on New Belgium Dig and Dogfish Head Aprihop in single serving bottles, and this week we are rotating in Avery Maharaja in sharable bottles. An Imperial IPA, Maharaja is part of Avery’s Dictators Series and is a limited release product. We’re pleased to have a case to share with you!

This week’s Friday Night Featured Flight and Craft Draft Sampler Promotion remain $7.00 (all day) and consist of the following selections. I also enclose a flyer for posting purposes if you like.

Friday Featured Flight ($7):

  • Orval
  • New Belgium Fat Tire
  • Avery Maharaja
  • Oskar Blues Old Chub
  • Anderson Valley Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout

Craft Draft Sampler ($7):

  • Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar
  • Samuel Adams Alpine Spring
  • Full Sail Amber
  • Great Divide Titan IPA
  • Fuller’s London Porter

Remember there’s always complimentary valet parking, so it’s easy to stop to visit us.

Thank you so much for your support, have a splendid week, and we’ll look forward to seeing you soon!
