Colorado Black Friday Beer Releases & Special Tappings

Colorado Black Friday Beer Releases & Special Tappings
Avg. Reading Time: 9 min

Each year on Black Friday, millions of Americans shake off their tryptophan-induced comas brought on by the previous evening’s gorge fest, to shop off all their newly acquire calories. For die-hard beer fanatics however, Black Friday has grown to represent a different kind of feeding frenzy.

Goose Island began the tradition of kicking off the holiday season with their yearly release of Bourbon County Brand Stout and its subsequent variants the day after Thanksgiving. And since BCBS’ popularity, countless other craft breweries have followed suit.

As we near Black Friday once again, we decided to round up the Black Friday beer releases already announced throughout Colorado. Hopefully, your liver is adequately prepared.
