Angel’s Members in Colorado Collaborate With 4 Front Range Brewers to create a Brew to Pair with a Christmas or Thanksgiving Dinner

bas_coloradoSometimes, the best way for craft beer fans to learn about beer is to make their own. With this in mind, to mark the end of its first year Barley’s Angels Colorado, a craft beer club designed for Colorado women who want to know more about craft beer, has collaborated with four professional brewers to create holiday beers.

Participation tickets for all brewing sessions were sold out and group members, many of whom had never brewed before, planned innovative, seasonal recipes that can be paired with Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, taken to a holiday party, or enjoyed with friends. Photos of the group brews can be found at www.barleysangelscolorado.beer

Now its time to taste the results. Angels and their guests (including men) are invited to special release parties for each of the brews. Parties will be held at each brewer’s taproom. Tickets or RSVP’s are not required.
Pints or growlers of the brew, and food pairings designed for each, will be available – while supplies last – for guests to purchase.

About Barley’s Angels Colorado:

 

Barley’s Angels Colorado was founded in January, 2014. Group meetings are designed to be roaming meetings, so that members can experience a wide variety of craft beers that are available to brew fans in Colorado. One meeting each month takes place in the Denver area and one takes place in the Boulder area. Meetings are typically scheduled for the fourth Monday and Wednesday of each month. For questions about upcoming meetings or the chapter, visit www.barleysangelscolorado.beer or email barleysangelscolorado@gmail.com.

 

In its first year, the traveling group has visited approximately 20 craft breweries, meeting staff and brewers at each and pairing food with selected beers. Past events included: Dinner at Post Brewing with Bryan Selders, a sour beer and cheese tasting at Crooked Stave, dinner at Hops & Pie, craft beers and baked goods tasting at Upslope, a craft beer/Colorado history tour at Golden’s Barrels and Bottles, craft beer and VooDoo Doughnuts pairing at Copper Kettle, and a craft beer and artisan salsa pairing at Epic Brewing.

 

Membership is expanding and attendees have said that they appreciated the chance to visit a range of different breweries, meet the brewers and/or staff, and to socialize in an environment with other women who love beer.

Women at Six Ten Brewing

women-sixten

Fall is here! The humidity has finally broken (hopefully) for the season, and the air is crisp, cool, and filled with the smell of wood-smoke. Tis the season to put away the light, fruity beers of summer & give thanks for the big, roasty, malty beers of winter.

We have so much to be thankful for in the Tampa area. New breweries, brewpubs, brew stores, and tap houses are opening all the time, many that are fully or partially women owned, and several home brew clubs that embrace their female members and even encourage all-women brew days.

This month the Bay Area Barley’s Angels will be giving thanks at a brewery that is woman (co)owned. Leslie Johnson left the 9 to 5 to pursue her dream of 6 to 10, by opening a brewery along with her husband Chris, and at the November meeting she will tell us about her experiences opening a brewery. Of course, a meeting isn’t a meeting without beer, and all attendees will enjoy their choice of either a pint plus 2 tasters, or 5 tasters.

We leaders would also like to say thank you to the Angels that make this group as fantastic as it is, so for the November meeting we are allowing paid members to bring a friend for their discounted member price AND giving every Angel who brings a friend one of our new 10oz tasting goblets.

♦Members + 1 friend $10/ea (with discount)
♦Non-members $15
♦November 20th. Social hour at 6, meeting at 7.
♦Snacks will be provided.
♦No tickets will be issued. Please check in with Lisa or Laurie upon arrival.
♦As usual, ladies only!

Women’s Craft Beer Appreciation Group of Summit County

There is a new women’s group in Summit County – the Breck Beer Betties! We will be having our first meeting this month and need to get the word out! We are a local chapter of Barley’s Angels, and the first of our kind in Summit County. Our mission is to expand the appreciation and understanding of craft beer among women by bringing them together with craft beer professionals to explore craft beer.

Our first meeting is at Kenosha Steakhouse 301 S. Main St. in Breckenridge on Wednesday October 15th age. This first meeting ties in with Kenosha’s Eat-Drink-Give campaign and a portion of each ticket sold will be donated to the Advocates for Victims of Assault. The ticket cost is $15 and will include a flight of five craft beers, various appetizers (donated by Kenosha) and a contribution to AVA. We ask that ladies RSVP to our email address – breckbeerbetties@gmail.com or message us on our Facebook page – www.facebook.com/breckbeerbetties as tickets are limited.

Many women are interested in craft beer and knowing more about it. This group is an opportunity for women to gather together to learn about craft beer in a fun and relaxed atmosphere in the company of other women. Kristin has been kicking around the idea of starting this chapter for a couple of years and decided now was the time! Colorado is home to 175 craft breweries and is ranked as 4th breweries (Brewers Association). Summit County has several breweries and many more bars and restaurants specializing in craft brews, thus a perfect location for Breck Beer Betties!
