Hey guys, the Weekend Beer Buzz has returned with a slightly different approach this time. Rather than blasting you guys with dozens of events every weekend, we’re going to share our very favorite beer releases and beer related events. Think of it as the breweries, tappings and happenings you’d most likely find us hanging out, drinking and supporting.

Sit’N Rock Ale…
ABV: 5.9% IBU: 28 $6
A lightly hopped American pale ale brewed with wheat. Smooth, easy drinking, with light flavors of biscuit and a delicate citrus aroma.
ABV: 5.6% IBU: 12 $6
An English-style dark ale that smoothly delivers flavors of chocolate brownies and coffee. Restrained bitterness along with a velvety mouthfeel make this dry porter an ideal choice for the inner pub dweller.
Zuni Street IPA
ABV: 6.7% IBU: 40 $7
A bright, unfiltered, hoppy offering, packed with flavors of citrus and tropical fruit. Full bodied and smooth, this beer is low on bitterness and drinkable to no end.
Eva’s Golden Ale
ABV: 5.5% IBU: 18 $5
A unique, refreshing ale suited for any season. Generous hopping with Brewer’s Gold lends a bright flavor of lemon zest, backed by balancing notes of light, bready malt.
ABV: 6.3% IBU: 18 $7
A dark Belgian abbey ale brewed with wheat. Notes of delicious chai tea spice result from the interplay of clove-like aromatics from the yeast, and a mound of freshly grated ginger steeped in the beer.
Way West Wit
ABV: 6.2% IBU: 13 $6
Inspired by Belgian wit biers, this ale was brewed with a heap of wheat along with coriander and orange peel. Full bodied and refreshing, packed with delicious flavors from the Belgian yeast, this ale is sure to please.
Zuni Street Brewing is located at: 2355 W 29th Ave, Denver, CO.

- Restarter Bottle Release, TRVE Brewing, Denver, CO
In late summer and early fall, our brewing team kill themselves to prepare for the fruit harvest. Driving hours to the Western Slope to get thousands of pounds of fruit at its absolute peak, and then working long, tiring days to process this fruit and get it into beer as quickly as possible. These beers always seem to be ready when the days start getting longer and the flora come out of hiding. Restarter celebrates this cycle with peaches, cherries, and apricots from this year’s harvest. Bottles will be available at the taproom this Friday.
TRVE Brewing is located at: 227 Broadway #101, Denver, CO.
‘Deep Roots’ Bière de Garde is our newest beer release! Inspired by the novel, “The Life of Elves” by acclaimed French author, Muriel Barberry.
Beer tasting notes: A light, earthy nose followed by flavors of almonds and roses. Initial taste gives way to a malty caramel sweetness that complements the nutty and floral character. Subtle earthy hop character and finish. A thick and rich mouthfeel that finishes dry and crisp.
*Also look for IPA Experiment No. 1, a New England inspired Juicy IPA with over 4 lbs of hops / barrel.
Fiction Beer Company is located at: 7101 E Colfax Ave, Denver, CO.
