Fort Collins Brewery's October 2009 events

The late September / early October newsletter from Fort Collins Brewery just came out today and FCB is planning to sponsor several events coming up in October. In addition, they are working on some seasonal brews that you'll be able to try very soon in their tap room. Read on for highlights from their newsletter.

Brews

Start drooling for our next tap club release Awl'right Brown Bevvie an English Brown Ale that is currently lagering in oak barrels. This smashing brew is slightly sweet and deliciously malty. Made with Willamette and Sterling hops. 4.5% ABV.

Double Chocolate Stout is fixing to be released in mid-October. You all can't seem to get enough of this fine piece of work so this year we'll be obliging your requests to keep it around a little longer. Starting in October you've got 6 months to drink your fill.
