First Brew Fest: Taste of Tipsy’s

Last Saturday we attended our first ever brew festival — Taste of Tipsy’s! It was a bit cold and rainy, but a good time was had by all. Here are a few photos from the festival.

Setting Up at the Brew Fest

Things were looking a little lonely during setup on account of the rain.

Just some thirsty folks checking out our brews! (From left: Gordon, Matt, thirsty folks)

Nice view from the River North booth.

A couple of River North bombers spotted “in the wild” at Tipsy’s.

We had an awesome time at the festival and hope to be back next year. Look for us at the upcoming Colorado Brewers’ Festival in Fort Collins on June 23 & 24th!

Bottle Release Today at Taproom: Quandary Quadrupel

It’s time for our third bottle release! Quandary, our Belgian-style Quadrupel, will be released for the first time at 3pm today at the taproom.

The Quandary stats come in at 9.6% abv and 23 IBUs. The aroma is of intense dark fruit and black currants. The flavor is a balanced malty sweetness with a warm finish. Quandary will improve with age, so be sure to add a few to your beer cellar.
