Bristol Brewing Co (Colorado Springs) - Black Friday is not only a good day to shop for gifts, it's also a good day to release new beer! Stop by Bristol Brewing on Friday, November 23rd at 5pm for their Old No. 23 Barley Wine release party. The aging process is almost complete for this year's batch of Old No. 23 Barley Wine! It's a 2010 winner of the Silver medal in the Barley Wine-style Ale category at the Great American Beer Festival®. An annual Bristol tradition, Old No. 23 revives an English farmhouse brewery practice of making a complex ale to set aside for special occasions. Our version, while painstaking and time-consuming to brew, rewards the connoisseur with an ale that has the depth and complexity of a good brandy or single malt scotch. Massive quantities of malt and hops, a long aging time and limited availability make this a special ale worthy of its reputation. Blue Sage Catering will be there with some delicious food pairings!

Big Beaver Brewing (Loveland) - Like growler beer? Then you'll love 1/2 off growlers at Big Beaver today. Today's special 1/2 off growler is their Black Curly's IPA. Love to fly fish? Why not tie your own? Come join in the Vise Squad, a fly tying and social club. It meets tonight at 6:00pm. Bring your fly tying vise and tie a few on. Or just hang out at the Beaver.
