Atwater Beer Buzz April 28

It’s Springtime in the Rockies! 

Although the lifts have closed in almost all of the Rocky Mountain resorts, the snow still falls intermittently with beautiful blue skies and spring/summer temperatures. So don’t put away your winter beers yet - you still have some fireplace afternoons and evenings left.

Our 2014 Brewmaster’s Weekend schedule has been finalized, and we’re excited to share it with you! Here’s the scoop, so mark your calendars.

July 18 & 19 – Eric Wallace, Founder/Owner of Left Hand Brewing Co. in Longmont, CO will be joining us for a weekend of Left Hand libations. Left Hand’s Milk Stout seems to have started a revolution, so don’t miss your fix! 

September 5 & 6 – David Zuckerman, Brewmaster at Boulder Beer Co. in Boulder, CO is our featured guest throughout this weekend. Enjoy Vail Oktoberfest and taste some of Boulder Beer’s exciting new creations, too. 

November 21 & 22 – Matt “Truck” Thrall, Head Brewer at Avery Brewing Co. in Boulder, CO will be your royalty in residence. Truck will be ushering in the 2014 – 2015 ski season with you and his Avery Team this weekend, so be sure to save your seats for some fantastic Avery goodies! 

The schedule for each weekend will be as follows:

Friday from 4-7pm in Fireside Bar:  Meet the Brewmaster
Meet, greet and sample goodies from each brewery while visiting with the featured brewmaster. This is a complimentary event, so we hope you'll join us in Fireside Bar.

Saturday at 6pm in Atwater on Gore Creek: Small Plates & Craft Beer Pairing
Enjoy a guided tour at Atwater on Gore Creek by both the featured brewmaster and the Atwater culinary team through each of four courses designed around four beers of the brewmaster’s choice. Seats are $35/person, and reservations are recommended. 

We’re going to get started with the Left Hand Small Plates Pairing menu development soon, so we'll be sure to keep you posted with the selected beers and the resulting menu. 

For those of you looking for an escape, check out the terrific special packages and run away for the peace and quiet of our mountain retreat. 

We look forward to seeing you soon!
