Fall becomes winter at Funkwerks
Most residents of Colorado can relate to the following quote: "If you don't like the weather, wait five minutes." The temperature here can change quickly and without warning, whether it's for better or worse. However, there is one consistency I have found in the Colorado weather, and that's that Halloween is always a very pivotal time in the transition from Fall to Winter. This year was no exception - the first snowfall for Fort Collins happened less than a week before All Hallows Eve, and quite a snow
fall it was!
While winter has its perks, the cold weather has most certainly and somewhat unfortunately limited our taproom attendees to mainly inhabiting our indoor area, leaving our outdoor patio unoccupied and covered in snow. On the bright side, the chilly weather gives us an excuse to cozy up and enjoy activities indoors without the guilt of missing out on a beautiful day. This month Funkwerks would love for you to join us inside as we take part in a handful of special events coming up around the Northern Colorado area.
This Tuesday, November 1st at 6pm, Funkwerks is proud to announce that we will be teaming up with Jax Fish House for a delicious beer dinner. Located in Old Town Fort Collins, Jax is well known for it's fresh seafood and oyster bar.
Another exciting event we're involved in is being held at the West End Tavern in Boulder this Thursday, November 3rd beginning at 6:30pm. As a part of West EndTavern's Satellite Tap Room' series, Funkwerks is taking over, bringing our taproom to their tavern. This event will feature 10 of Funkwerks beers on tap and three representatives from Funkwerks will also be in attendance to answer questions and discuss beers. For more information, check out the West End Tavern's website.
We are pleased to join 'Save the Ales' this year, which is being held on Thursday, November 17th, from 5:30-8pm at the Walker Fine Art Gallery in Denver. Organized by the Colorado Conservation voters, this is a beer tasting held to support pro-conservation policy in the Centennial State and admission is $35 per person. Funkwerks will be one of 12 local breweries at this event, and it's a great way to discover new brews while raising awareness on protecting the local environment. Tickets are still available for purchase. Please visit the Colorado Conservation Voters website.
Whether it's at an event, or in the taproom, we hope to see you out and about, or rather in and around, soon!
