Roaring Fork Beer Company is set to open in Carbondale, CO at the end of March. Tickets to their Grand Opening celebration are currently on sale and going quickly. For just $30, you’ll get a commemorative glass with bottomless beers, a BBQ pig roast and a chance to win some killer prizes. Head over to the RFBC Blog and grab your tix today.
There are so many reasons to get excited about this new brewery. One of which is their brewer Chase Engel, who’s been in the biz a long time, previously brewing and raking in medals for Ska, Oskar Blues and Aspen Brewing. Another is the location, just off I-70, in an area short on craft beer, but exploding with outdoor activities and just a short drive away from popular destinations like Glenwood Springs and Aspen. And don’t even get us started on the relationship forming between RFBC and Casey Brewing and Blending, slated to open in Glenwood Springs later this year. RFBC has been hired to brew the wort for Casey Brewing, which will then inoculate, barrel age and work their magic on the beer to give us those funky sour brews we just can’t live without.
Those are just three teases on why RFBC is on our radar and should be on yours too. Check out the Press Release below for additional details, which talks more about the brewery, the beers and introduction of cans to the market.
