-Things will get rolling Thursday night with an event TapWerks general manager Greg Powell has been planning out for months: A Great Divide Yeti tap takeover. The event will feature Yeti, Oak Aged Yeti, Espresso Oak Aged Yeti, Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti and Belgian Yeti on draft. TapWerks will sell a sample tray with 5 oz. pours of all five, or drinkers can purchase a standard 12 oz. pour. Plus you can get the sweet beer glass pictured at right.
-Monday, TapWerks will hold a Brewdog release party featuring bottles of all the current Brewdog offerings.
-They’ll follow that up on Wednesday with a Green Flash release party with Hop Head Red and West Coast IPA on draft.
-On Feb. 7, TapWerks will host an Anthem Brewing Co. pint night featuring some “sweet tulips,” Powell said.
-Had enough yet? No? Good, because on the next Thursday — Valentine’s Day — TapWerks will warm your heart with a special firkin of COOP DNR on cocoa nibs.
That, my friends, is what you call bringing it.
