West Flanders Brewery, 1125 Pearl Street in Boulder, hosted a soft opening over the weekend in the former home of BJ'S Restaurant & Brewhouse (which has relocated to 1690 28th Street in Boulder). The new brewery tapped its keg just in time for the fall -- a season definitely worth toasting.

Here's a taste of what's on the culinary calendar this week:
