Tomorrow and Wednesday are important dates that should be on the calendar of every craft beer fan. Tickets to the 34th Annual Great American Beer Festival are just hours from going on sale. Are you ready?

Bring your questions, meet industry professionals and be sure to thank them for what they do.

Farm to Table Renamed “paired”

While the Farm to Table Pavilion has been renamed paired, attendees will be happy to know the format will remain largely unchanged. paired focuses on small, independent craft brewers, paired with top chefs in a more intimate setting. The beers being offered in paired are exclusive to the event and won’t be pouring in the festival hall. Tickets to paired will run $145 and will only be available to members of the American Homebrewers Association (AHA).

Festival Dates

Once again, there are 4 sessions spread over 3 days.

  • Thursday, September 24: 5:30 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.

First Draft Lets You Pour-Your-Own Beers

Denver’s River North (RiNo) neighborhood continues to grow into a real beer mecca with the addition of its first true taproom. First Draft opened on Friday, July 24th, with 40 taps of craft beer, wine and cider. The taps are self-service, meaning you pour-your-own and pay by the ounce.

Haven’t you always wanted to be at a great beer bar and pour your own flight? Or how about having a side-by-side tasting of your favorite imperial stouts or wild ales without having to pay for and consume full pours of each? Ladies and gentlemen, this is happening and First Draft is your answer!

first draft taps

Owner Mark Slattery wanted a place to showcase the craft beer movement, with an emphasis on the thriving local scene. Let’s be honest, we’re spoiled here in Denver with some first class beer bars, but the booming RiNo neighborhood needed a great taproom. The open space at First Draft gives it a modern feel, with a mezzanine overlooking the tasting room and front patio that will eventually feature a fire pit.

On the kitchen side, Chef Eric Lee has crafted a menu bold enough to stand up to and complement the amazing beer selection. The kitchen is compact with limited storage so go in expecting fresh and adventurous small bites, along with entrées, deserts, and even brunch on the weekends.

Odell Launches Piña Agria – Pineapple Sour

Odell Brewing’s expanding their Cellar Series portfolio next week as they get ready to launch the brand new Piña Agria, sour pineapple beer. This unique offering is unlike anything we’ve ever seen before, brewed with pineapple juice and fermented with yeast cultures from the popular Friek, hand-selected by Odell Maintenance Manager and home brewer Matt Bailey, the brainchild behind the beer. Odell describes the beer as “tart, slightly funky, and full of bright pineapple character”.

750 mL bottles will launch on July 31st and will be available throughout Odell’s distribution footprint. Read on for more details on this fun, tropical, funky new brew.

Pucker Up for Pineapple

Odell Brewing Introduces Piña Agria

Fort Collins, CO. – On July 31, 2015, Odell Brewing will celebrate the release of its newest Cellar Series brew, Piña Agria, a sour ale brewed with pineapple. Offered in 750ml cork & cage finished bottles, the Cellar Series of beers are bigger and bolder brews that push the boundaries of style, ingredients, and brewing techniques. They are a showcase of the brewers’ innovation and talent, and an outlet for creativity and experimentation.

Piña Agria is no exception. The recipe was inspired by Odell Brewing’s Maintenance Manager and home brewer, Matt Bailey, and his admiration for the balance of tart citrus and fruity sweetness pineapple contributes to food and beverage recipes.

“I always wanted to do a sour brew at home, but never had the resources, knowledge, or the yeast to do it well at home,” said Bailey. “For me, this is obviously a special beer, but it embodies what Odell Brewing is about…home brewing roots, collaboration from learning and working with a team, and the ability for anyone to try and brew what they want on our pilot system.”

Bailey’s brainchild evolved into a small, five barrel batch on the brewery’s pilot system and eventually a full Cellar Series release. Brewed with pineapple juice, Piña Agria is also fermented with the yeast and cultures Bailey hand selected from his favorite Friek barrel. The final brew is tart, slightly funky, and full of bright pineapple character.

New Belgium To Open Pilot Brewery In Denver’s RiNo Neighborhood

Earlier today, New Belgium Brewing revealed their plans to launch a 10 BBL pilot brewery in Denver’s River North (RiNo) Neighborhood. The new project will open at The Source Hotel (set to open in early 2017) and will feature a barrel aging area called “The Woods”, which will also offer a rooftop lounge and pool deck on the 8th floor of the hotel. The Woods will dish up small batch, experimental New Belgium brews not available anywhere else, which will be paired with small plates and snacks.

Read the press release below for more info.

(Ft. Collins, CO) – New Belgium Brewing is about to let the creative juices flow through a new 10-barrel pilot brewery at The Source Hotel in Denver’s River North District (RiNo). New Belgium will brew on the ground floor of the Source Hotel, with barrel aging on the 8th floor in a rooftop lounge, dubbed “The Woods”, a collaboration between New Belgium and The Source Hotel. “The Woods” will serve New Belgium beers paired with small plates and will include a snack counter and bar, sit-down dining and beer garden. The 8th floor will also include a pool and roof deck with mountain and downtown views.

New Belgium beers originating from the 2,000 square foot brewery will go to establishments in The Source Hotel and expanded market hall. The fifty oak barrels for on-site aging will help expand New Belgium’s sour beer offerings, which the brewery has been producing since 1998. That’s when brewmaster, Peter Bouckaert, first introduced aging beer in wood barrels and blending to New Belgium. The brewery’s current cellar in Ft. Collins – also known as the foeder forest – now has 64 French Oak foeders, or barrels, making it one of the most comprehensive wood beer programs in the country.

“After 25 years in Ft. Collins, we’re really excited to get more deeply involved in Colorado’s cultural and political capital,” said Jenn Vervier, director of strategy and sustainability at New Belgium. “We’ve long considered creating a Denver location to bring the New Belgium experience to more of our Colorado fans and to the millions of travelers who visit Denver. RiNo is already a vivid scene with a rich art and craft beer culture, and will soon have great access for bikers and walkers. This small batch brewery will allow us to collaborate with The Woods’ chef and mixologists to create innovative beers, drinks, and pairings you can’t get anywhere else. The Source Hotel and the Zeppelin Development team are the perfect fit.”

Hop the Vote Returns for GABF

The 2nd Annual Hop the Vote will return to the 2015 Great American Beer Festival (GABF). The friendly brew competition between members of Colorado’s House of Representatives and State Senators will allow them the opportunity to team up with local breweries to create a beer that will be judged and voted on by GABF attendees throughout the 3-day event.

This year, the House will partner with Big Choice Brewing, while the Senators will partner with Cannonball Creek.

More details below. Past coverage can be found HERE.

Colorado Brewers Guild Brings Hop the Vote Back to GABF
 
Colorado legislators campaign for their beer
 
DENVER – July 14, 2015 – Today the Colorado Brewers Guild announced the return of Hop the Vote to the Great American Beer Festival (GABF). Hop the Vote is a spirited but friendly brewing competition held between Colorado State House of Representatives and Colorado State Senators. Brewing will take place this month with voting occurring during the first three sessions at GABF on September 24 – 26. 
 
The Colorado Brewers Guild introduced Hop the Vote at GABF in 2014. The program was launched to highlight the vital role beer plays in the Colorado economy and the relationship between lawmakers and Colorado craft brewers. Last year, the Colorado House of Representatives team and Denver Beer Co. won with a beer called Representative Saison. The team was honored inside the State Capitol with a custom brewing trophy. 
 
“Colorado has one of the fastest growing craft brewing industries in the nation, which benefits not just beer connoisseurs, but our state economy,” said Polly Lawrence, co-captain of the House of Representatives team. “Last year beer lovers voted Representative Saison, the House’s craft brew, champion over the Senate’s fermented concoction. At the Hop the Vote contest this year, I fully expect the House will again demonstrate its dominance over the Senate, adding one more delicious craft beer to Colorado’s already impressive beer portfolio.”
 
To prepare for the competition, each team will host a brew day at a Colorado brewery this month. Each team has both Democrat and Republican members. The Colorado House of Representative team will brew at Big Choice Brewing on Saturday, July 18. Team members include Jeni James Arndt, Polly Lawrence, Paul Lundeen, Dan Pabon, Kim Ransom and Yeullin Willet. The Colorado State Senate team will be brewing at Cannonball Creek on Tuesday, July 21. This team is made up of Chris Holbert, Matt Jones, Andy Kerr, Tim Neville and Pat Steadman. 
 
During each session of GABF, team members will be pouring and campaigning for their beer at the Colorado Brewers Guild booth. GABF attendees will try both beers and cast a vote for their favorite brew. The winner will be announced at 3:45 p.m. on Saturday. Beers will be available for sampling during the Saturday evening session.
