Introducing our first seasonal beer, Quad on Oak!

Back in the sweltering summer of 2012, we had an imperial witbier nearing the end of fermentation, and wanted to give it a little something extra to elevate it further.

After kicking around a couple ideas and kicking back a few beers, we decided to conduct an experiment: with oak.

That experiment, of course, would become Unified Theory, our beer with the strongest cult following.

Flash forward to today. We’ve been itching to brew a seasonal series for some time, and since oak complemented the Unified Theory so well, we wanted to see what else it could do.

On Saturday, March 1st at 1pm, we’ll debut Quad on Oak, the spring edition of our new seasonal lineup!

Adding oak to a new amped-up Quadrupel recipe helps to balance the inherent sweetness, adding dry notes of vanilla and coconut.

Bombers will cost $9 each with no limit. We’ll keep brewing and pouring Quad on Oak until late May, when we’ll introduce another seasonal brew.

Look for River North Tripel in summer, and River North Dubbel in fall…

Cheers!

Anniversary #2: The Beer and the Party!

It’s our party and we’ll brew what we want to!

Our second anniversary is less than two weeks away, and you know we like to go big.

Last year it was a 12.5% Imperial Stout. This year, we’re taking it a different direction…

Introducing Anniversary Ale #2, a 10.1% Belgian Golden Strong Ale dry-hopped with Nelson Sauvin!

A wonderfully floral and tropical brew, Anniversary Ale #2 will serve as the centerpiece for our weekend-long birthday party, beginning Friday, February 14th and lasting until Sunday, February 16th. We’ll have Anny #2 on tap all weekend, with $9 bombers to go (limit 6). But we’ll also pull some rare beers from the cellar throughout the event. Such as:

Friday, 2/14: Side-by-side tapping of Anniversary Ale #1 and Anniversary Ale #2. Both huge, both delicious, both distinct. Opening early at 1pm with the first bottles and pours.

Saturday, 2/15: We’ll rotate through some barrel-aged kegs throughout the day, giving the brewers choice as to what they want to drink.

Sunday, 2/16: J. Marie Barreled & Bretted on tap! We’ll also host our first Cellar Sale…limited quantities of rare bottles from the past two years available to go, one day only!

We hope you can join us for the festivities, but if not, Anniversary Ale #2 will hit store shelves around Colorado after the party. For all the other beers, however, you gotta make it down here!

Cheers to another successful year!
