Last Wednesday we celebrated our final beer dinner of 2012, and I must say we wrapped up the year in style surely setting the precedent for 2013. The sold out event featured 5 outstanding breweries (Ska Brewing, AC Golden, Arvada Beer Company, Boulder Beer and Strange Brewing), 5 delectable courses (paired beautifully with the beer), an energetic and engaged crowd, great prizes, trivia (including the popular and entertaining – stump the brew master) and a successful toy drive.
We offered attendees the opportunity to bring toys for donation to the dinner; and boy did they deliver! We collected 100 toys and The Golden Hotel / Bridgewater Grill, along with Faurot Construction, will be partnering to bring the total number of toys donated up to 250! The toys will go to 400 kids in the Golden area through the 5th Annual Golden Toys for Kids Drive arranged by The Rotary Club and the Kiwanis Club.
The Colorado Beer Tour began in February 2012 as an innovative idea and to become a signature event of the property. With the exception of the Winter Dinner, each month one brewer is featured. During that month the Bridgewater Grill will put one of their brews on the rotating Colorado Beer Tour tap and the paired menu item from the dinner will be made available on the Bridgewater Grill’s regular menu. The dinners are designed to educate about the growing craft brewing industry while enjoying a perfect pairing of food and brew.
