Beer Calendar: A New Brewery, Anniversaries, Festivals and a Ski Season Kickoff

Dry Dock Brewing debuted two whiskey-barrel-aged beers in its Signature Series last week, both in bottles and at its new tasting room, located inside the brewery's production facility in north Aurora. The beers are Double Brown Ale, an 8 percent ABV English-style brown "with a nutty, caramel backbone and pronounced, earthy bitterness"; and Double Hazelnut Brown Ale, an 8 percent ABV version of the brown that has been spiced with hazelnut, which "creates its earthy, nutty complexity and caramel, toffee-forward aroma." Fewer than 200 cases of each beer will be distributed. Turn the page to see all of this week's craft beer events.
