Free beer courtesy of the AHA
The AHA held a rally at the CB & Potts restaurant and brewery this weekend, and I could not pass up the chance to check it out.
Attendees of the rally got a free growler with coupons to fill it at a cheap price, raffle tickets for door prizes, a chance to meet the brewers, free appetizers, and a tour of the brewery. The best part was one free beer!
The coupon for the free beer could be used on any CB & Potts beer, so I tried their new beer. Their new beer was Pilsner Noelle. It is a good beer, a bit heavier than I expected, but a good Pilsner. According to the guide, CB & Potts recently abandoned the Coors and Budweiser from their menu. I suspect this is the beer they will serve in its place.
The tour was filled with interesting gems of homebrew advice, such as the importance of using finings or using longer boils at higher altitudes. After the brief tour, the brewers were open for questions.
In the future I’ll try to keep an eye on these events. These tours and AHA rallies are interesting events that you won’t want to miss.

I live in Denver, Colorado. This blog is everything about beer, wine, cider, mead and other spirits.
I am a avid homebrewer and winemaker. I’ve been making my own beer and wine for many years. I started making beer when I was in college (mostly because the drinking age in the United States is 21). My first few beers were horrible. The beers are much better now, and I often supply my neighborhood with free beer! It is a great hobby!
