Frontmaniac Double Dry-Hopped Double IPA can release at Black Shirt Brewing Co

Frontmaniac Double Dry-Hopped Double IPA can release at Black Shirt Brewing Co

On Saturday, June 23, Black Shirt Brewing Co (BSB) will bring back its recklessly double dry-hopped double IPA, Frontmaniac. 

Brewed in the New England or Vermont style, this double IPA clocks in at 7.5% ABV, and sits right in the middle of the bitterness scale at 50 IBUs. Frontmaniac is brewed with a trifecta of expressive hops – Citra, Galaxy and Mosaic – and is double dry-hopped with a profusion of Citra and Galaxy. The result is a beer bursting with notes of freshly sliced pineapple, ripe mango, and peeled mandarin orange, with subtle undertones of early-season strawberries, pine sap and field grass. 

Black Shirt will have Frontmaniac on tap and in 16oz four-packs to go starting at 11 a.m. sharp on the 23rd. Drafts are $7 and four-packs run $15. No limits! Kegs of this beer will see very limited distribution to select Denver Metro-area accounts; cans will only be available in Black Shirt’s tap room. In addition to the beer release, the Delta Sonics Blues Band will play a free show on the brewery’s one-of-a-kind pallet stage on Saturday from 2-5pm. This show is a part of the BSB LIVE 2018 concert series, which features free concerts on Friday nights and Saturday afternoons through September.

    Movie at the Symphony: JAWS IN CONCERT

    Movie at the Symphony: JAWS IN CONCERT

    Based on the best-selling novel by Peter Benchley and directed by Steven Spielberg, this masterpiece of suspense tells the tale of a small, New England seaside community terrorized by a predatory great white shark during the busiest weekend of the tourist season—the 4th of July. After several local residents are killed in the waters just off shore, it falls to three unlikely heroes – police chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider), marine scientist Matt Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) and surly local sea captain Quint (Robert Shaw) – to hunt down and kill the beast before more lives are lost.

    Despite a notoriously difficult ocean shoot with constant technical challenges, Jaws became the most successful movie of all time (until the release of Star Wars two years later), and Spielberg has often credited John Williams' iconic score with much of the film's success. Now for the first time, audiences will have the chance to experience the power of a live symphony orchestra performing the entire score in sync with one of the greatest motion pictures of all time.

    Colorado Symphony Presents: Yo-Yo Ma performing Bach at Red Rocks*

    Colorado Symphony Presents: Yo-Yo Ma performing Bach at Red Rocks*

    World-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma will perform at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, the first stop in a two-year journey that will bring Bach's complete solo cello suites to a limited number of locations on six continents. It is a journey motivated not only by the music’s significance in his life — it is among the very first he ever played — but also by Bach’s ability to speak universally. 

    Yo-Yo Ma believes that at a moment when our world is challenged by the pace of change and the strain it can create, audiences will find shared meaning in this music. Indeed, writing in the New Yorker in December, Alex Ross described Yo-Yo Ma’s performance of the suites at the Hollywood Bowl as "The loveliest experience of my listening year … it was as if music had stilled the world.”

    *Please Note: This performance does not include members of the Colorado Symphony and is a standalone showcase featuring Mr. Ma; presented by the Colorado Symphony Association.

    Buddy Guy With Special Guest Tom Hambridge
    Jun
    19
    7:30 PM19:30

    Buddy Guy With Special Guest Tom Hambridge

    At age 81, Buddy Guy is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee; a major influence on rock titans like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Ray Vaughan; a pioneer of Chicago’s fabled West Side sound; and a living link to the city’s halcyon days of electric blues. Guy has received seven GRAMMY Awards, a 2015 Lifetime Achievement GRAMMY Award, 37 Blues Music Awards (the most any artist has received), the Billboard Magazine Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, a Kennedy Center Honor, and the Presidential National Medal of Arts. Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him No. 23 on its "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" list.

    Tickets for the June 19 show at Pikes Peak Center will go on sale Friday, March 23 at 10 a.m. and start at $39.50. They can be purchased at the Pikes Peak Center box office, PikesPeakCenter.com, AXS.com or by phone at (719) 520-SHOW. Tickets can also be purchased at The Broadmoor World Arena box office or BroadmoorWorldArena.com.

    Guy released Born To Play Guitar on July 31, 2015, via Silvertone/RCA Records, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Blues Albums chart.  The follow-up to his 2013 Rhythm & Blues, which also debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Blues Albums chart, Born To Play Guitar was produced by GRAMMY Award winning producer, songwriter and Guy’s longtime collaborator, Tom Hambridge. The release features guest appearances by Van Morrison, Joss Stone, Kim Wilson and Billy Gibbons. 

    Though Guy will forever be associated with the city of Chicago, his story begins in Louisiana. One of five children, Guy was born in 1936 to a sharecropper’s family and raised on a plantation near the small town of Lettsworth, located some 140 miles northwest of New Orleans. Guy was just seven years old when he fashioned his first makeshift “guitar”—a two-string contraption attached to a piece of wood and secured with his mother’s hairpins. 

    In 1957, Guy took his guitar to Chicago, where he would permanently alter the direction of the instrument, first on numerous sessions for Chess Records playing alongside Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, and the rest of the label’s legendary roster, and then on recordings of his own. His incendiary style left its mark on Guitarists from Jimmy Page to John Mayer.

    “He was for me what Elvis was probably like for other people,” said Eric Clapton at Guy’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction in 2005. “My course was set, and he was my pilot.”

    July 2012 proved to be one of Buddy Guy’s most remarkable years. He was awarded the 2012 Kennedy Center Honor for his lifetime contribution to American culture; earlier in the year, at a performance at the White House, he persuaded President Obama to join him on a chorus of “Sweet Home Chicago.”

    Guy is a genuine American treasure and one of the final surviving connections to a historic era in the country’s musical evolution. He keeps looking to the future of the blues through his ongoing work. 

    “They [Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf] all told me that if they left here before I did, then everything was going to be on my shoulders. So as long as I'm here, I'm going to do whatever I can to keep the blues alive,” said Guy.

    Fiction Beer Co. Robot Can Release: HAL - Galaxy, Medusa, Lemondrop DDH NEIPA

    Dual Can Release!

    HAL - Our 2001: A Space Odeysey inspired Double Dry Hopped New England Style IPA with hops inspired by space! Galaxy, Lemondrop, and Medusa hops are used for dry hops (Google Medusa and Lemon Slice nebulae—they are amazing—as are the hops!). Tropical citrus aroma and flavor for days! 5 lbs of dry hops per bbl, Fiction's most aggressively dry hopped beer! 🌴🍋🍊🔥

    Do Not Touch The Flamingos - Apricot Saison. Complex fruity esters and spicy phenols blend perfectly in this dry, yet full-bodied Saison. A blend of 6 different yeast strains adds to the complexity of the aroma while the apricot delicately enhances the natural flavor profile of this beer leaving a lasting impression.

    25th Annual Colorado BBQ Challenge
    Jun
    14
    to Jun 16

    25th Annual Colorado BBQ Challenge

    The first official state BBQ challenge was held in Frisco, Colorado in 1993, with only 12 teams – split almost 50-50 between Frisco-area professional and amateur chefs. During the first few years, the event was held in the Historic Park eventually growing to encompass two blocks of Main Street.  Now in its 25th year, the event extends over six blocks of Main Street and can attract over 30,000 people.

    Over the past 22 years the Town of Frisco has partnered with six non-profits to put on the event and has raised over $800,000 for those organizations.  The BBQ Challenge creates an outlet for other local non-profits to raise funds for their organization. For the 2018 BBQ Challenge the Town of Frisco is partnering with Mountain Mentors, the Summit County Restaurant Association, the Summit County Chamber of Commerce, High Country Conservation, Advocates for Victims of Assault and Women of the Summit.

    The Colorado BBQ Challenge is a Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS)-sanctioned competition.  KCBS sanctions BBQ and Grilling competitions across the U.S. and promotes barbeque as America’s cuisine.  In addition, KCBS has an extensive Certified Barbeque Judging program.  It is the largest society of barbeque enthusiasts in the world.  Winners of the Colorado BBQ Challenge in Frisco are eligible to compete in the American Royal – the “World Series” of Barbecue.

    Follow the Colorado BBQ Challenge Facebook Page for updates on this year’s event!  Share your memories with us as well.

    3:00 PM15:00

    Tapping & Bottle Release of Old Old Wooden Ship at Call to Arms Brewing Co.

    Introducing Old Old Wooden Ship, a Port Barrel-Aged Sour Saison w/ Guava and Tart Cherries, to be released Thursday, June 14th in the taproom at 3pm. 

    Do you remember the beer Beautiful Impression, a collaboration we did with The Brewtography Project?...well, Call to Arms reserved a portion of this beautiful beer and blended it with Pediococcus and Brettanomyces, and then let it age for seven months in Port barrels and added guava and tart cherries. At 6.1%ABV, Old Old Wooden Ship is a dry and crisp fruity beer with a tart sour finish and lingering notes of ripe nectarine, grapefruit, and soft oak. 

    It is truly beautiful and distinctly delicious.

    Limited release of 375-ml bottles and on tap // Only 200 bottles available // $12 each // Limit of four bottles per person.

    Ratio Quiz Show (The Office)

    The Ratio Quiz Show is a bigger, badder, more inappropriate version of trivia, that pits teams of audience members (come sign up your team of up to 5 people) against a panel of "experts". If the expert team wins, the prizes for audience members suck...if an audience team takes first place the prizes are AWESOME. Test your knowledge on The Office ranging from Dwight's faxes from the future, Pam getting banned from Chili's to Threat Level Midnight.

    And as with last month's 90's Jams theme, we'll be tossing some video clips from Scranton, PA on the projector throughout the night.

    Come sign up around 8, show kicks off at 8:30. 

    Hosted by Ian Douglas Terry and Andrew Bueno

    8pm - FREE TO ATTEND- COOL PRIZES (if an audience team wins)

    Better Together Collaboration Release Party at New Image

    Come celebrate with Molly's Spirits and New Image Brewing at New Image Brewing's taproom as they release their newest collaboration, Better Together!

    They'll be drinking a few beers, playing games on the patio, listening to some good tunes and giving away prizes from 6-9PM on Thursday, June 14th. Food will also be available to purchase from New Image's brewpub.

    About Better Together: Sometimes two great things come together to make something even better. "Better Together" uses two of New Image's most successful variants from their single hop series, Citra and Mosaic! We believe partnerships are stronger than the sum of their parts. We also believe in inclusiveness and the well-being of others. So for "Better Together" we are uniting not just hops, but people! Working with our pals over at New Image, we'll donate $1 for every 6-pack sold to a local organization that provides resources for well-being, Jefferson Center for Mental Health. So drink to your health as well as the health of others!

    Where to purchase: Find Better Together at Molly's Spirits starting 6/11/18. (It will be on tap at New Image and there will be a limited amount of 6-packs available to purchase at New Image too!)

    Labrador Retrievers & Craft Beers at Gunbarrel Brewing

    Do you like craft beer? Do you like dogs? Well then join Gunbarrel Brewing on Sun. June 10th for a match made in heaven! From 2-5pm $1 of every beer sold will be donated to help the pooches in the rescue Rocky Mountain Lab Rescue. They specialize in finding homes for rural and some local Labrador retrievers and Lab mixes. We find our Labs through shelter volunteers out of state, who will alert us to great dogs that are about to be put to sleep. Most of these labs are in "High Kill Shelters". These are shelters that are almost always full because they are located in rural areas, where the dogs run stray, easily mating because they have not been altered. Funds raised from this event will go directly towards the food and medical care for these wonderful creatures. Strutting their stuff and available for love and cuddles will be current dogs available for adoption as well as alumni who have found their loving forever homes through this rescue. Come on out and drink for a good cause!
