Beer calendar: Stout Month takes the stage at Vine Street Pub, Mountain Sun

Lone Tree Brewing unveiled plans last week to begin canning two of its best-selling beers, Lone Tree Peach Pale Ale and Mountain Mama Golden Lager, beginning in April. The brewery bought its own canning line and plans to distribute the beers throughout the Denver metro area, along with the bomber bottles that it already packages and sells.

West Flanders Brewing in Boulder has made a Super Bowl bet with Seattle's Elysian Brewing. Depending on the outcome of the game, the head brewer in the winning city will be flown to the losing team's city at the loser's expense, where he will take over the losing brewery's equipment and staff and brew a beer of his choice. On tapping day, the host brewery must fly the winning team's flag for two weeks or until the beer is gone.
