Gearing up for Denver....

Some of the Denver Beers have been brewed.
Firecracker Pale Ale

You may remember this beer, it was named after a former employee. Well Bill said it best,
A hoppy, Northwestern interpretation of the style brewed to honor Aurora, one of our long time kitchen employees. Three hop varieties (Cascade, Mt. Hood, and Willamette) and a hefty dose of malts come together into a beer that, like its namesake, is feisty, full-bodied, and not to be messed with. O.G. 14.8, 5.5% ABV.

Perspective IPA

Amarillo and Simcoe hops combined for a very aromatic and intensely hoppy beer. One of the favorites among the local hop heads. Be warned this one does not last long, it is not to be missed. What a great beer name. Its a mood enhancer for sure.

Brown Bombshell

Bill experimented with a coffee brown, each keg is different as he hones in on the exact amount of coffee need. Each one has been very well received, and has a distinct coffee flavor that is not overbearing. Great Balance.

Kolsh 45

A German syle pale ale using special grain, special hops and a special yeast. Kolsch 45 is a crisp and refreshing alternative ale. Light and golden with a rich pilsner malt presence and the delicate flavor of Hallertau hops. OG 1,045 4.2% by vol.

Thanks to all the WABL's that showed up last Monday. The trivia was well received, although most of the answers where well off the mark. You all need to bone up on your Big Time knowledge. Thanks to the one who thought we did 100,000 barrels a year. We would be quite a different place if that were the case.

In other news: In the knock down drag out Rock em Sock em Robots Bill was the victor, beating Mr. Cantwell at his own game in his own house. Way to go. Bill will be getting his satin robe soon. He already has the boots, rubber boots that is.
