Atwater Beer Buzz December 19

Greetings from winter wonderland!

Let it snow, let it snow…and the forecast supports our snow dance. It’s a beautiful thing!   We are in full holiday season mode, with our Atwater winter menu coming out tomorrow and holiday craft beers galore!  Christmas parties, Cascade Christmas events…there’s holiday music and décor to bring even the grumpiest Grinch out to play…

Special alert today, December 19th: Our Wednesday Night Craft Beer Tasting has been cancelled, as our representative from Ska Brewing Co. was in a weather related car incident, and his car is not driveable. So we will be resuming our Wednesday Night Craft Beer Tastings on January 16th with Odell Brewing Co. I certainly apologize for any inconvenience! (and yes, Eric is okay – just shaken up). 

Preparations are also in the works for the Big Beers, Belgians & Barleywines Festival coming to the Cascade January 10–12. Our Fireside Bar draft handles will be taken over for the weekend by beers donated from around the world as a fundraiser for the Vail Valley Charitable Fund, so you never know what will be on draft! Many of the beers will be special release products, newly released products, and those only available in the brewery tap room…so come check it out as you can. The Fireside Program will begin on Thursday morning, January 10th, and will continue until the special beers run out. Expect to rub elbows with craft beer celebrities and industry folks while you’re here. They’ll be here in force! 

Our regular Friday Night Flights will continue through the holiday season, and I will keep you posted about new beers as they arrive.

This week we brought in several new items for our list:

  • Breckenridge Christmas Ale
  • Steamworks Colorado Kolsch
  • Bitburger Pilsener (on draft)

Safe travels to all & enjoy the snow!!
