The New Belgium Beer-Fest at Barley & Hops

There’s nothing like a beer festival to liven up the week. Tomorrow night (Wednesday, August 4th) Barley & Hops will be throwing another of their mid-week beer fests. This time they’ll be featuring the beers of New Belgium. They’re bringing in 16 different beers from the brewery including four from the incredible Lips of Faith series. If you haven’t tried the Lips of Faith beers yet, this would be the perfect chance to taste what they’re all about. This is New Belgium’s premium line of small-batch brews and I’ve yet to have one that wasn’t excellent. New Belgium calls these their “playground beers” and if you’re up for something a little different these brews definitely fit the bill.

Nate at Barley & Hops continues to expand these tastings and this time around he’ll have a table featuring wines from Sycamore Lanes in addition to a blended margarita and rum runners table. They’ll also be pouring Crispin Cider. Even if you’re not big on cider this one is worth sampling. There’s something here for everyone and at $10 you certainly can’t beat the price. The party runs from 7-10 pm and when you get through the door I’d suggest you head directly for the Lips of Faith Belgian Style Blonde Ale that will be pouring on tap. It’s a tasty 8.5% golden strong ale and it’ll get your night started right.
