Weekly beer geeks, you may remember the As-Yet-Unnamed-Beer collaboration between Tucson's Dragoon Brewing Company and New Belgium Brewing, which we informed you of back in July, and have been awaiting with bated breath ever since.
Well, the beer finally has a name: Westerbrü (and yes, we are confident that the umlaut is the source of its powers) — and more importantly, you can finally taste it this weekend.
New Belgium Brewing Southern Arizona just posted information for a series of events taking place this weekend, where they'll be rolling through our fair city to promote the collaboration with Dragoon, who recently won the Born and Brewed Tucson Beer Cup for the second straight year.
From the poster that you can see at right, there will be events on Friday, Sept. 27 at Dragoon Brewing (1859 W. Grant Rd.) from 4 to 5:30 p.m.; at 1702 (1702 E. Speedway Blvd.) from 6 to 7:30 p.m.; and at Tap and Bottle (403 N. Sixth Ave.) from 8 to 9:30 p.m.
And if you can't make it on Friday, Tap and Bottle (who recently took third place in the Mountain West region of CraftBeer.com's survey of the Great American Beer Bars) will be running a Beer Brunch on Sunday, Sept. 29, from 10:30 a.m. to close, featuring beer mimosas, bloody beers, and food from Chef's Kitchen and Seis Curbside Kitchen throughout the day.
