RESOLUTE BREWING COMPANY
7286 S YOSEMITE ST #110
CENTENNIAL, CO 80112

January is when we set big goals like being more active, losing weight and eating healthier.  

It can be challenging to find the motivation during the darkest, coldest months of the year to get outside and run however committing to an event can help provide the accountability we need to keep it going.

They say the average New Year’s resolution lasts less than 2 weeks, let’s prove the statistics wrong and earn our beer!

This Resolution themed social fun run is for runners and walkers of all paces and ages, no pressure, just fun! Your 4 legged friends and kids are welcome to join in on the fun too (kids 12 and under run free, hot chocolate included!)

The course: 
Our winter fun run will take us along the beautiful dry creek trail. This nice flat paved and gravel path for an easy out and back route.

Games:
Traditional brew run events include our famous "Beer Olympics games".  Since the weather is variable this time of year we are waiting to see what games will be possible and we might have some new winter themed ones under wraps.........a keg sled pull relay perhaps?? Our Fitness partner Manic Training will surely have some fun fitness challenges in store for us regardless, snow bunnies perhaps?

Cost:  
$25 includes run entry, RESOLUTE brew, fun coaster, our "carb loading" pint glass, and fun swag donations from sponsors.   

CHECK OUT OUR “BRING A BUDDY” OPTION FOR THIS EVENT:

Friends don’t let friends train, run or drink alone! Set some big goals this year and then kick off the season by participating in our run. Register under our buddy team option with a friend and save $5 each on entry!
Full payment is required from one person upfront, however you can add/officially register your friend at a later time.  They can reimburse you later (or just buy you another brew at the event)!

ONE BREW NOT ENOUGH?!?  

Check out our new Winter 4 pack: Participate in 4 brew runs for the price of 3!

Sommeliers Choice Awards
May
19
to May 20

Sommeliers Choice Awards

Sommeliers Choice Awards is an international wine competition within the United States that will be judged entirely by sommeliers only. The competition will focus exclusively on the needs of on premise establishments such as bars, restaurants, lounges and clubs, making this competition fundamentally different from any other wine competition within the U.S.
The goal of the Sommeliers Choice Awards is simple: to provide experienced on premise buyers and sommeliers a valuable benchmark for understanding which wines would make a compelling addition to a wine list.
Medals will be awarded to those wines that meet very specific judging criteria, with a goal of identifying wines that should become additions to restaurant wine lists. Wines will be judged according to criteria such as how well they pair with food items in addition to their overall versatility. Highest marks will be awarded to wines that provide value for money at their respective price points. Judges know the trade prices of each wine as they are judging each flight. Hence the winning wines would be the one that would score the highest for its quality, typicity, value, and packaging.

Westbound & Down and Hops & Pie’s Beer Release

Westbound & Down and Hops & Pie’s Beer Release

Westbound & Down Brewing Company and Denver’s Hops & Pie share more than just an ampersand in their name – they have collaborated on a number of beers, including their newest one that will be released on Dec. 8: F Me Twice.

Friends Westbound & Down head brewer Jake Gardner and Hops & Pie owner Drew Watson first started their collaborations after a conversation where they discussed the positive flavors of the New England-style IPA without the murkiness and drama. Hence, their first collaboration: You're Screwed If You Do and Screwed If You Don't.

On the two Colorado institutions’ continued journey exploring the space between good and evil, right and wrong, and West Coast and East Coast IPA, comes F Me Twice, a hop walloping Double IPA that toes the line at 8.8% ABV. Melon fruit, mango, papaya and juice galore, but fully fermented, clear, and with respectable bitterness from the use of foolish quantities (10.85 pounds per barrel) of Mosaic, Citra, Galaxy, Amarillo, Enigma, and Centennial. 

The beer will be released at both locations on Dec. 8, though Idaho Springs-based Westbound & Down will be naming it a more family-friendly name, QDH Double IPA.

We will always be grateful for so much wonderful music, making Boulder all the more great to live in. Now we will be able to hear them once again. 


Their founder, Fred Hess, recently passed away and we are all heart-broken. We dedicate this concert to him.  Thanks for all the joy and beautiful challenges, Fred! - Dan and Diane

Seedstock's Working Class Rye Release
Dec

2:00 PM14:00

Seedstock's Working Class Rye Release

On Dec. 7, Denver’s Seedstock Brewery will release its Working Class Rye. Seedstock’s rye beer, made with more than 50 percent rye in the grain bill, is an old beer style that was popular before Reinheitsgebot dictated that beer was only to be brewed with barley. (A little history lesson: rye is a good cold-weather crop and rye beer was especially popular with the working class of Northern Germany, hence the name Working Class Rye). Working Class Rye has a spicy rye aroma with notes of cloves and a moderately creamy mouthfeel finishing dry and spicy. The 4.2-percent ABV Working Class Rye reminds drinkers of pumpernickel bread. Pairs well with an honest day’s work.

First Friday at Intrepid Sojourner

Celebrate this month's First Friday at The Intrepid Sojourner Beer Project!

The First Friday Art Walk & Luminarias Festival unite in the Art District on Santa Fe.

As always, hundreds of artists will be displaying work in studios and galleries along Santa Fe Drive with late-night hours in addition to Luminarias festivities.

Enjoy a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus, who will be roaming the galleries along the Luminarias path.

Luminarias—or Farolitos—are a tradition of the southwest. Candles are carefully placed in sand inside of a bag, providing a warm glow that will take over Santa Fe Drive in Denver for one night only. 

Farolito means “little lantern” in Spanish, and luminary, or luminaria, means “festival light.” The term luminaria was used in reference to a vigil bonfire, though it’s primarily northern New Mexicans who have kept this distinction.
