Colorado Craft Beer Week

1505010_10150397200074949_799706135_n

 

It’s finally here! Colorado Craft Beer Week is a time to really drink in the best that Colorado has to offer for craft beer. We have some pretty fun little events going on throughout the week, so come on by!

Friday, March 21st: we will be tapping our Deeply Disturbed double dry hopped double IPA. It’s like our Disturbed Reflection, just a little crazier.

Sunday, March 23rd: Oxymoronic Monolith tapping. Monolith stands on it’s own, but we do happen to have three versions (Trilith?) that we will have on tap: our classic Monolith Imperial Stout, Merlot Monolith, and Bourbon Barrel Aged Monolith.

Monday, March 24th – Friday, March 28th: every day we will have a different beer running through our Randall filled with hops! We will announce which beer will be flowing that day on Facebook.

Thursday, March 27th: NKOTB at the Lobby. This is a beer-centric event that encourages you to dress up in your greatest 80s finery and strut your stuff. We will have one of our beers on tap for your tasting pleasure!

We hope that you have a great week trying out all of the awesome stuff that Colorado brewers have come up with and we can’t wait to see you at Rickoli’s!

Open Call for Art!

 

Dev is a work of art

If you’ve visited the brewery in the last three months, you may have noticed the lovely art that has graced the north wall of the taproom. We love having local artists display their art (and hopefully sell a few pieces) every month with us, and we are looking to keep that tradition rolling! On Wednesday, January 8th from 5:30-8pm we are hosting an open call for art portfolios at the brewery.

If you are a local artist (or know a badass artist), bring your portfolio or some samples of your work down to the brewery, grab a beer, and we’ll talk to you about your art. We are looking for items to hang on the wall, but do have some limited space for work that is non-wall-hangable.

We generally have the art up for a month, and we will work with the artist to host a reception toward the beginning of the month.

If you are unable to make it on Wednesday, please email a link to your online portfolio to dev (at) breweryrickoli (dot) com by Tuesday evening.

We look forward to checking out the amazing talent in the area and getting some pretty new art for our walls!

Yelp Factory Fete

On December 4, 2013, we braved the bitter cold and snow to participate in the Yelp Factory Fete at the EXDO Center in Five Points. The invite-only, mod-themed party had around 450 attendees and featured several local food joints as well as breweries and liquor purveyors. Despite the frigid temperatures, we had a blast and were delighted to warm up several of our customers, Rickstars, and GABF volunteers with our tasty brews.

We were pouring Wasa Pwichu Winter Porter, Elke’s Brown Ale, Quicher Bichen Dutch Strong Ale, and Totally Eye-P-A through the Randall (our hop infuser). We blew through Totally, Quicher Bichen, and Elke’s and had only a pint or two left of Wasa Pwichu when we rolled home. So it was definitely a good night!

Yelp hired a professional photographer to capture the evening, and here are some of the shots he captured throughout the night!

We had a great time at the event and can’t wait for the (warmer) festival season to ramp back up!

Sandwich Competition Rules

By popular request, here are the rules for the sandwich making competition we will be hosting during our First Anniversary Party on Friday, November 29th.

Rule #1: you may use any leftovers from the potluck in order to construct your sandwich

Rule #2: you may bring extra items to use, but you must share those items with your other competitors (no “secret” ingredients!)

Rule #3: your sandwich must be paired with one of our beers

Rule #4: there are three judges, so make sure there is enough for each to have at least a couple of bites

Rule #5: you have 25 minutes to make your sandwich and figure out your pairing

Rule #6: kick ass and take names

The competition starts at 2pm. The judges will be evaluating the sandwiches on taste, creativity, and pairing.

There will be some pretty awesome prizes for first, second, and third place, so we would recommend bringing your A-game.

See you on Friday!!!
