This is one of the reasons I love living in this town...an event like this! All week long celebrating 2 of my favorite things... craft beer and gourmet coffee!
Click HERE or on the logo above to go directly to the Craft Week website. I will be highlighting events that I think are absolute "must do's" here and on the radio each afternoon this week.
My Saturday night kicked off at Wild Goose Meeting House on Tejon with a great tasting local IPA from Smiling Toad and some fun live music from Here's To Fightin'. They were a pretty fun folksy band. This was my first time here and based on the vibe I will be back!
So Tuesday night I snuck out a few minutes early to drive to Monument and hit up Pikes Peak Brewery for the first time. I have had their beer before but have never been inside. After I got lost (I blame Siri) I found a yummy pretzel and a pale ale while also trying the sampler of some of the cool collaborations.
(Wednesday 4/30) going on until 10pm
Tonight's best looking event is at Front Range BBQ it's gonna be a great night if you like limited edition beers...I know I do! Of course there will only be Colorado Beers tonight!
Monday night was a blast at Urban Steam. Beer mixed with coffee? My 2 favorite things in one! Ran into some familiar faces while there, watched my first ever latte making competition, bought an excellent pound of Sumatra and more importantly discovered a rad new place for lunch, coffee and cocktails nestled at the end of Sierra Madre. This event brought me in...and I will be back for sure!
(Tuesday 4/29) starting @ 6:30
This is the last of the "Latte Art Throwdown" at the Colorado Coffee Merchant. Similar to the event I went to last night @ Urban Steam. Who knew it was such an art form in making the perfect latte. It's a fun competition at one of the best coffee houses in town.
And if you are headed north of town for the drive home stop by Pikes Peak Brewery in Monument for the Colorado Collabroration Brew Tap Takeover. I will be hitting this one up for sure tonight!
(Monday 4/28) starting @ 7
If you get a chance stop by Urban Steam Coffee Bar & Cafe on Sierra Madre it's a FREE event and you will love their special tapping a special collaboration beer with Pikes Peak Brewing, featuring Urban Steam’s unique Indian Anohki!
If you stop by any of these events and see me (pic on the top of this page) please say hi and we will chat it up about beer and coffee!
