Jason Yester and Todd Walton from Trinity Brewing Company are hosting a massive, mega, off-the-friggin-hook, pre Great American Beer Festival party next Wednesday, October 8. This pre-festival festival kicks off at 11am at the brewery on 1466 Garden of the Gods Road in Colorado Springs.
These two guys are the rock stars of the beer world in Southern Colorado, so this is no ordinary shindig. Jason has managed to get a bunch of "one time only, wacky cool beers" from a hoary host of Colorado brewers to tap. Check out the lineup SO FAR:
- Brewer's Bitter (TommyKnocker's)
- Southwestern Braggot (Carvers)
- Gordon (Oskar Blues)
- Awaken Cask dry hopped with Oaxcan coffee and Chickory
- Flo Cask dry hopped with wild Colorado hops aged on French oak

- Kaiser Imperial Octoberfest (Avery)
- Ale to the Chief (Avery)
