Three cups of local hooch

Posted By on Tue, Jun 7, 2016 at 10:49 AM

Among the ever-present plethora of potential places to drink and find fun drink-related happenings, three upcoming events have caught our attention:

• This Thursday from 5:30 to 8 p.m., Bristol Brewing Company will release its new Automaton White IPA, which "melds lovely citrus aromas and flavors from Mandarina Bavaria and Citra hops with the fruity esters of Belgian yeast — coriander and orange peel add delicious complexity."

In addition to sampling it, you're invited to take part in a Forgotten Genius Color Fight:
Come be a Forgotten Genius and “defend your ideas” against the other team! You’ll try to get colorful powdered dye on the other team’s White IPA t-shirts, specifically on the lightbulb illustration, while defending your own lightbulb. The team with the least dye on their lightbulbs wins!
• All Geniuses receive a free Automaton White IPA t-shirt to wear for the fight
• Winning team gets bragging rights and their picture on Bristol’s social media
• Signup begins right after the group toast at 5:30
• Fight starts at 6:30pm, weather permitting, outside the Bristol Pub
• All Geniuses will be split into two teams
• Geniuses must be 21 or older and present to sign up
• All Geniuses must sign a liability waiver

• Next up, on Wednesday, June 22 from 7 to 8:30 p.m., Brooklyn's on Boulder invites you to "A Lee Spirits Cocktail Class: Brooklyns Favorites."
