According to our resident Beer Man, Jonathan Shikes, pumpkin beers are best consumed at temperatures below 70 degrees. With a high of 63 predicted for today, this is the perfect time to stop by Avery Tap Room, 5757 Arapahoe Avenue in Boulder, for the Rumpkin Imperial Pumpkin Ale Release Party. The rum barrel-aged ale, a draft-only release, will be available starting at 6 p.m.
Although admission to the party is free, you must pay for your beer. For more info, call 303-440-4324 or visit www.averybrewing.com.
