Taste the colors of the beerainbow

By now you've heard of the Double Rainbow Guy and the incredulous video he made about rainbows.  There have been as many parodies as views of the original video (nearly 6 million). Well, some of our local brewery boys have decided to use that as inspiration for a new beer.  To read all about it go check out my Colorado Springs Craft Beer Examiner column entitled Double your pleasure with Double Rainbow Guy and Double Rainbow Saison. Beer tap TV will be covering this collabrew from beginning to end!

And while you're there you might also be interested to know that the 4th edition of the Beer Map from the fine folks at the Beer Drinker's Guide to Colorado is now available.  Get yourself a copy!

And did you know that two of Colorado's biggest beer festivals will square off later this summer? That's right, for the first time in history the Great American Beer Festival is taking place on the same weekend as the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival. Go read my article and you'll see how this fiasco unfolded...  I want to know what you think about this and which festival you'll be attending.

Beer Tap TV will be busy this week. On Thursday we'll be at Great Divide Brewing in Denver for Kyle Hollingsworth's Brew Fest. Unfortunatley, this event is sold out, but stay tuned to Beer Tap TV for a special episode that will show you what you missed.

On Saturday we'll be at Antlers Park in downtown Colorado Springs for the Springs Beer Fest, hosted by Old Chicago's, Bristol and Beer Tap TV.  Come on down for a day of fun in the sun with suds, great music from the Jake Loggins Band and more!  Tickets only cost $20 in advance ($25 at the gate) for 7 hours of unbridled craft beer imbibing.  BTTV will b having an after party immediately proceeding the event... we're right across the street from Phantom Canyon, and a block or two away from Old Chicago's on Tejon (which is now GMed by our very own Dusty Frazier of Taste Buds!).   And if that's not enough to entice... the one and only Lisa "Beer Goddess" Morrison will be in town hanging out with us too!

One more thing before I tap out... I know I said I was gonna do a Brewvie Review for From Paris With Love next.  However, I've seen a slew of movies since then, so which would you prefer a BR on? Shutter Island, Edge of Darkness, Daybreakers, Sherlock Holmes, From Paris with Love, When In Rome, The Bounty Hunter, Valentine's Day, The Road, or The Wolfman?

Zivjeli!
