American Craft Beer Week

This entry is a quick reminder that this week (May 11-17th) is American Craft Beer Week - a national celebration of craft beer and the great beer culture we have here in America.  A number of breweries will be hosting special tastings, tours, meet-the-brewmaster events, and tapping specialty beers.

I plan on celebrating this week with the following schedule:

Wednesday: I've volunteered to bring beer this week for our softball team.  So after the game Team Fletch will be drinking Montana Mixer beers from Big Sky Brewing out of the bottle instead of PBR out of the can.

Thursday: Along with some friends, I will be visiting the Golden City Brewery for some late afternoon pints in the beer garden.  The Golden City Brewery is the "second largest brewery in Golden."  The largest brewery in Golden is, of course, Coors (in the world for that matter), and the third largest brewery in Golden is in my basement.

Friday: Where else, the Wynkoop!

  1. Sounds like a great week, Cody! I'll be enjoying some of Oregon's finest this week myself (Full Sail, Rogue and Deschutes Brewery are the usual suspects, but loads of others). Both Deschutes and Rogue have public houses in Portland these days and one of the most recent pub additions is Hopworks Urban Brewery. Dovetailing nicely with Portlands "green" vibe, Hopworks' brews are all organic and the brewery is powered by 100% renewable energy--and the beers are damn tasty.

  2. Cody, I just visited Harpoon Brewery in Boston and sampled their new Pilsner. Any chance we will taste a pilener at SBM?

    Skaal!

  3. The closest thing to a Pilsner at SBM will be Coors Light unfortunately. You'll have to settle for Paulaner Oktoberfest or one of my Ales! I'm glad you liked the Harpoon Brewery.

  4. When you are in the corner and have got no money to get out from that, you will have to take the personal loans. Just because that would help you emphatically. I take secured loan every time I need and feel myself fine because of it.
