It’s Friday afternoon, and that means it’s time to turn your attention to the weekend and the beers that will help make it enjoyable.
Here’s some of what’s going on in Aurora’s beer scene this week:
If you have been a fan of Mu Brewery’s “kill the keg” operation each Friday, congratulations. You did it. According to the brewery on East Colfax Avenue, the special where customers are encouraged to finish off a keg each Thursday has been such a success Mu will have to kill kill the keg.
“You killed our kegs. Now we are starting to run into the opposite problem. We. Can’t. Make. Enough. Beer,” Mu owner Nathan Flatland wrote on the company’s Facebook page Thursday.
That means if you want one more crack at killing one of Mu’s brews, you better swing by next Thursday for the last kill the keg.
Dry Dock rolled out their Signature Series whiskey barrel aged Imperial Stout Thursday at their North Dock facility near Interstate 70 and Tower Road. According to Dry Dock, this very limited brew “is a robust beer with pronounced roasted bitterness that is balanced by chocolate undertones and a dark fruit backbone. This velvety textured beer ages in whiskey barrels for 8 months, adding vanilla and coconut nuances to its flavor and aroma.”
It sells for $14 a bomber.
At Coda Brewing north of the Anschutz Medical Campus, Luke Smith’s team recently tapped their Via Chicago Pale Ale. The brew, which can also be found in bombers, has notes of papaya, mango and lemon peel, according to the company.
And some beer news developing on Havana Street. The Havana Business Improvement District said in a tweet Friday that they are planning an even for October that will pair desserts and beers from Havana restaurants. More on this as it develops.
