March 23, 2013 - Boy what an event! For all that made it out to our Russian River tap takeover in Highlands Ranch, you’re welcome! What a great lineup of craft brewed beer! We tapped Consecration, Temptation, Damnation, Supplication and Sanctification at 11AM on a day that saw single digit temperatures, blowing snow, icy roads and did we say snow? Yeah, plenty of snow.
It seemed as if we might have to cancel this event upon waking to the winter wonderland outside. But with our eye on giving our customers the craft beer they want was too important to let mother nature stand in the way. We went ahead and opened the door to the public and what a great idea it was. At 11:15AM our bar was packed and the dining room was close to it. Coloradans love their craft beer - no doubt about it.
Supplication was the first keg kicked - imagine that. Some patrons stayed and tried all five of these beers and then promptly jumped into a warm cab and were whisked away to their humble abodes. Many of the patrons asked where Pliney the Elder was and were answered with the news that they didn’t welcome. Even though we secured five great beers from Russian River, Pliney the Elder was not one of them.
We understand: we’re the new guys on the block and patience is the key to securing the greatest beers we can get our hands on. Between three locations, we have 140 taps pouring craft beer. No lie. We rotate kegs with great frequency allowing our patrons to try a bevy of different beers no matter what day you’re in. It goes without saying that Pliney the Elder would make for a fantastic addition to our lineup.
Russian River - We love your beers and so do our patrons.
Here are some images from the event:
