From the Falling Rock Website:
A few weeks ago Chris Black went up to Fort Collins with our buddy Justin of Star Bar fame (and B-Side) to have fun in the Foeders with Lauren Salazar. After the difficult work of tasting and blending, the two settled upon the second blend of their famed collaboration Rock Star. We will be tapping this sour beauty on Friday, March 20th at 5:30 pm before heading over to Star Bar for their tapping at 8pm. This is the ultimate kick-off to the Collaboration Fest and Colorado Craft Beer Week: not only do breweries collaborate on brewing a beer, but even the bars get into the fun and camraderie! – See more at: http://fallingrocktaphouse.com/rock-star-part-deux/
