Atwater Beer Buzz June 6

Greetings all!

Another fantastic Brewmaster’s Weekend was enjoyed by all this past weekend, with Kevin & Marisa Selvy from Crazy Mountain Brewing Co. and Matt Wirtz and Andy & Amanda Jessen from Bonfire Brewing Co. as our resident celebrities. We met a number of Teva Mountain Games guests and a lot of Vail Valley locals, and are pleased to have you all on board

Many thanks and kudos to our culinary team for the incredible Small Plates pairings. The craft beers from Crazy Mountain and Bonfire were perfectly complemented by the inventive and tasty appetizers, and all of our guests are excited to return for more Atwater experiences.

Our next Brewmaster’s Weekend is scheduled for July 6 & 7 with Avery Brewing Co from Boulder, CO. Matt Thrall, Head Brewer, will be joining us for the weekend and we expect it to be a blast! We’re looking to do as much as we can by the pool, and are exploring options along those lines.

Craft Beer at the fantastic infinity-edge pool is happening for the summer! The current craft beer cans at the pool include the following:

Oskar Blues Mama’s Little Yella Pils
Crazy Mountain – Mountain Livin’ Pale Ale
Avery IPA

We’re also working on inventing a “Bucket o’ Craft” for the pool, which will give all of our guests another reason to choose craft options!

There are fun summer cocktails and non-craft alternatives available in addition to our Atwater Summer Menu at the pool.

New on our craft beer list this week are two great products:

Samuel Adams Summer Ale (draft)
La Trappe Oak Aged Quad (single serving bottle)

This week’s Friday Night Featured Flight ($7) will be as follows:
Russian River Redemption
New Belgium 1554
The Bruery Saison de Lente
Unibroue La Fin du Monde
Odell Cutthroat Porter

And the Craft Draft Sampler ($7) rotated this week, so our new draft list is:
Samuel Adams Summer Ale
Bristol Laughing Lab
Ska Modus Hoperandi
Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar
Fuller’s London Porter (last keg - will be rotating to Old Speckled Hen on nitro)

We look forward to seeing you, and thank you so much for your continued support!
