Pateros Creek Brewing (Fort Collins) - It's Thursday, which means a new Outlaw tap! They're sticking with the pink theme this week so they've got a keg of Lady Moon spiced with ginger root and pink peppercorns for your drinking pleasure. It won't last long so come in and try some today! They're including this in their Breast Cancer Awareness Month promotion so $2 of each pint sold will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

Equinox Brewing (Fort Collins) - If this is Thursday it must be firkin tapping time over at Equinox. They'll be opening up a firkin of Irish Cream Sunset Stout today starting at noon. Get some before it's gone.

Breckenridge Brewery (Denver) - the folks at Breck Brew wants your input. Email them at freshbeer[]at] with your favorite food recipe made with beer. They'd like to post your recipes on their new website that will go live by the end of the year.

Great Divide Brewing Co (Denver) - Have you been missing out on Beer&Cheese events at the brewery? It’s your lucky day! GDBC has a few spots left in their pairing next week. Join in on Tuesday, October 25th from 6:30 to 8pm. To RSVP, send an email to sharon[at] Cost: $24.

Upslope Brewing (Boulder) - Back in March, Upslope expanded their brewhouse but quickly found out that it wasn't enough. Facing a possible shortfall in beer production, Upslope went looking for a temporary solution. They quickly found some love from the yet to open Black Shirt Brewing (BSB) of Denver. BSB had already received their fermenters and when Upslope asked for help they were more than happy to help out. BSB's 15 barrel fermenter has been put to good use at Upslope and has been making beer ever since the day Upslope put it to work. The spirit of cooperation lives in the Colorado craft brewing industry.

Boulder Beer Company (Boulder) marks the return of a favorite dark brew: Obovoid Oak-Aged Oatmeal Stout. It hits the taps at 4pm today. Join Boulder Beer for a roll-out party today from 4pm to 7pm with $3.25 pints of Obovoid, raffle giveaways and the return of the Obovoid egg relay race. Read my Obovoid beer review.

Revolution Brewing (Paonia) - Tonight in Paonia, it's Community Night at the Revolution Brewing tasting room where $1.50 of every $4 they sell goes to benefit the Blue Sage Center for the Arts. Come celebrate and support the Arts with a nice cold brew. PS - Don't tell Sue Sylvester from GLEE about this.

Great Divide Brewing Company (Denver) - Coloradans: enter the #GDinthe303 contest to win a sweet Yeti prize pack.
