River North Brewery (Denver) - For their Wayward Wednesday tapping this week, they've got a limited 10 gallon batch of a Double dry-hopped River North White. It taps at 3pm. Just think of it as a White IPA.

Boulder County

Crystal Springs Brewing (Boulder/Louisville) - During the recent floods, they received major damage to the lane up to the brewery which has impacted their ability to get beer to their customers. The other effect of the flood has been that work on their new location in Louisville has been impacted and they are not going to be able to open by the end of September. It is probably going to me more like mid-October. The flood has caused delays in deliveries, impacted people working on the brewery and caused them to be unable to work on it as scheduled. Rather than try to "push" getting open and risk not doing it well, they would rather delay the opening and do it right. Nevertheless, they are close to being able to brew in the new location and once open they will be able to triple their current production. They did start moving the brewhouse in the new location today!

Twelve Degree Brewing (Louisville) - There's a special going on during the Broncos game tonight. Get $2 off all growlers and to-go pizzas.
