Beer fans from all over the country converged in Chicago on Friday, November 13th as Goose Island released 2015 Bourbon County Brand Stout Rare at a special ticket-only event.

If bacon is good and more bacon is better, then even more bacon with lots of incredible craft beer is the absolute best. The Bacon and Beer Festival returned to Denver on Sunday, October 8… and it was glorious. Bacon is an extremely versatile ingredient and this festival was a platform for some of Denver’s top chefs to show us its versatility. It was also a great opportunity for local breweries to show how their beers can pair with diverse swine dishes. Like last year, proceeds from the event benefited Metro CareRing and Project Angel Heart.
What: Upslope Brewing’s 7th Anniversary Party
When: Saturday, November 14, 2014 from 2 – 8 p.m.
Where: 1898 S. Flatiron Court Boulder, CO 80301
Upslope Brewing Company has come a long way from its humble beginnings 7 years ago. Most Coloradoans have become familiar with their core lineup of cans as solid pack-in pack-out refreshment options. The Boulder brewery has been able to prove that it’s not a one-trick pony in recent years with a slew of inventive seasonal releases such as their Pumpkin, Christmas, White Thai IPA, and this year’s standout Blood Orange Saison. However, perhaps the greatest display of what Upslope is truly capable will be on display this Saturday during their 7th Anniversary Party.
On a dark and stormy November 9th night, Raleigh’s own Big Boss Brewing premiered their Tavern Ale as part of their regular seasonal line-up.
