Atwater Beer Buzz May 27
Hope you had a great Memorial weekend! It's the beginning of whitewater season and with the ucomping GoPro Mountain Games, there are plenty of reasons to come out of hibernation. At Vail Cascade, the pool bar is opening in preparation for an amazing summer. Let the fun begin!
Meet the Brewmaster in Fireside Bar, Friday from 4–7pm for a complimentary tasting and then Saturday will be the fantastic Small Plates & Craft Beer Pairing starting at 6pm in Atwater on Gore Creek. Reserve your seats for this guided tour through four plates especially designed by the culinary team for these specific beers. Discussion will be held between each course by both Peter Bouckaert and the Atwater Chefs. Seats are $35++ and can be reserved by either emailing Laura at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 970.479.7014.
New update! The beers chosen for the Small Plates Pairing will be:
- New Belgium Snapshot
- New Belgium Slow Ride Session IPA
- New Belgium Pear Ginger Beer
- New Belgium Cocoa Mole
The Fireside Feature coming up will be Odell Tree Shaker Peach IPA.
The Vail Cascade cellar program roll-out has been delayed to June 15 to coincide with staff training and the increase in business at the resort. While a bit disappointing that it wasn't available over the long weekend, the delay does allow for an additional list item to be available: Odell Myrcenario.
As your reward for checking out this blog, here’s the list that we have developed to tantalize you until June 15. As promised, more details and brewery links will be available on social media between now and then. Drum roll please...

The Cellar List criteria are few and flexible. We are featuring a single case of each beer, and the list will be perpetually rotating to show rare, limited release, allocated, iconic, experimental, unique and fun products. There are a crazy number of these beers. Finding them and scoring a case for your drinking pleasure is our goal.
