Atwater Beer Buzz August 19

It’s time to climb the mountains and swim in the rivers!

The snow is finally mostly all melted off the mountaintops, and the rivers are as warm as they are going to get. It’s the perfect time for that tubing adventure down the Colorado or doing some terrific high country hikes!

We’re celebrating the turning of seasons at Vail Cascade with our Boulder Beer Brewmaster’s Weekend, September 5-6. Brewmaster David Zuckerman of Boulder Beer Co. and his family will be joining us for our traditional weekend activities, so mark your calendars now! And while you’re here for Boulder Beer Brewmaster’s Weekend, you can also enjoy the first of the Vail Oktoberfest celebrations in Vail Village and Lionshead.

I’d also like to extend a tremendous thank you to Eric Wallace of Left Hand Brewing Co. and his son, Nick, for joining us as our featured guests for the July Brewmaster’s Weekend. It was tremendously successful, and everyone had a wonderful experience. Eric was guessing that he had about 10 total minutes of downtime in the whole 3 hours of Meet the Brewmaster on Friday (crazy busy!), and we hosted a very enthusiastic group of many locals and hotel guests for the Small Plates & Craft Beer Pairing at Atwater on Gore Creek on Saturday. Kudos to the Atwater Culinary team for amazing food & beer pairings and to the excited people who made the Left Hand weekend promotion in Fireside Bar the best ever. The custom created Spiegelau stout glasses were an amazing hit with Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro!

For those of you who are local to the Vail Valley, there are several new beers on the Cascade list, and the draft rotation to the Fall selection has begun. The draft rotation also features an additional Colorado line, now opting to feature international selections in bottles. Come check it out!

More information is forthcoming about Boulder Beer Brewmaster’s Weekend very soon! We’re planning to have the menu development tasting this coming week, and I’ll release the chosen beers, too.

Enjoy your weekend, and we’ll look forward to seeing you soon!
