Atwater Beer Buzz July 19

Greetings from the craft beer cellar!

We are pleased to be receiving some steady rain up here in the Vail Valley, and  hope it keeps coming! Playing in the water ranks right up there with hiking, camping, biking, frisbee golf, miniature golf, horseback riding, and the myriad of other fun things that we love to do.  And when you’re winding down for the day our Flights and Bites program is a great way to relax in Fireside or out on the patio.

This week has seen some amazing media coverage for our Vail Cascade Craft Beer Program! In addition to the Sunday 7/8 front page photo in the Vail Daily, there’s a wonderful article by Krista Driscoll in the Vail Daily Weekly about our Avery Brewmaster’s Weekend that was posted online on Tuesday.

The super icing on our media cake for the week is the new issue of All About Beer Magazine, which sports a full page photo of our own Executive Chef, Todd Bemis, and a six page article about his journey with craft beer beginning with the 2012 Big Beers, Belgians & Barleywines Festival Brewmasters’ Dinners and winding  up with our new Craft Beer Program at the Cascade. We are absolutely delighted to be featured in this world class publication and very much appreciate the recognition of our fantastic culinary team!

Save the date!! Remember that Doug Odell, Owner/Brewmaster of Odell Brewing in Ft. Collins, CO will be joining us on the weekend of August 17th & 18th for our next Brewmaster’s Weekend. Come by and sample Odell craft beers at your leisure on Friday the 17th in our Fireside Bar from 4 – 7pm, and make reservations for another fantastic Small Plates & Craft Beer Pairing on Saturday the 18th at 5pm. If you’d like to save your seats, please call us at 970/476-7111 or send me an email.
