Atwater Beer Buzz October 5

Greetings from the Pumpkin Patch!

We’re learning how much our guests like pumpkin beer, so we’re keeping it coming! More pumpkin back into this week’s Friday Night Featured Flight, and we’re keeping an eye out for the legendary Avery Rumpkin which should be hitting the loading dock anytime…


Remember that Atwater on Gore Creek is offering 50% off all Large Plates & Pizzas through the Fall season, and that Aria Ski Conditioning begins next Monday the 8th. Odell Brewing Co. is sponsoring the kick-off party after the Monday evening session, so come on out and work out with an Odell reward. The Ski Conditioning party begins at 7:00pm, and is open to participants and Aria Club members.

Our Wednesday Night Craft Beer Tasting with Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. was a steady stream of locals augmenting our Fall group meetings & events that are in house. Jeff brought a fun selection of Sierra Nevada goodies, including BRUX, their collaboration with Russian River Brewing Co. To round out his selection were Ovila Abbey Dubbel, Tumbler Brown Autumn Ale and Sierra Nevada Stout. The Stout got special treatment with an adventurous dollop of whipped cream, which turns a tasty beer into dessert!

Next week’s Wednesday Night Craft Beer Tasting will feature our local Bonfire Brewing Co. from Eagle, CO. Andy and Matt haven’t told us yet what they are planning to bring, so watch the Atwater on Gore Creek Facebook page for more intel as we know it. Mark your calendar for Wednesday, 5:30 – 7:30 pm in Fireside, and plan on $2 slices of our new Atwater pizzas: Herbivore, Carnivore & Omnivore.

Next week also brings the Great American Beer Festival into view, and we’ll be moving full swing into our Brewmaster’s Weekend Sweepstakes. You can find more details at, where you can enter to win a night at the Vail Cascade and two seats to the Brewmaster’s food pairing event for the weekend!
