Friday, 11/21, West of Ardennes collaboration tapping at Wild Goose Meeting House! We teamed up with one of the best new breweries in Colorado Springs, our new friends Todd and Jeff at Red Leg Brewing Company. Together we brewed a Belgian-style hoppy brown ale called West of Ardennes, which combines our signature Belgian flair with Red Leg’s malt-forward beers. Come get the first pour at Wild Goose at 6pm and meet the guys behind both breweries! Full details on the beer courtesy of Focus on the Beer. 

Saturday, 11/21, West of Ardennes taproom release! The day after the Colorado Springs tapping, we’ll tap our version of West of Ardennes in the taproom. Ours was fermented in rye whiskey barrels, and will only be available right here at the brewery! Draft only, no growler fills please.

And finally, we will be closed Thanksgiving 11/27, but open normal hours Wednesday and Friday.

See you around!

Whiskey Barrel J. Marie returns 11/15!

Back in 2012, we got our first whiskey barrel and loaded it with J. Marie. After tasting the result, we were hooked…

Now, the beer that started the barrel program is back! Batch five of Whiskey Barrel J. Marie releases Saturday, November 15th at 1pm in the taproom!

J. Marie’s stonefruit esters meld beautifully with notes of toasted coconut and vanilla from the barrels. Delicate and unique, Whiskey Barrel J. Marie comes in just a hair above 10% ABV. Drink it fresh or age for up to two years.

As always, we’ll have the beer on tap and in bottles to go at the release party. Bombers will cost $15 with a limit of three. With 135 cases total, we’ll send more bottles to stores in Colorado and Kansas City following the release.

This release marks the time of year when we bring back our classic barrel-aged brews. We’ll also have Barrel Aged Avarice returning in December, and Whiskey Barrel Quandary in January.

So come down on the 15th, and get the beer that started it all, Whiskey Barrel J. Marie!

Cheers,

-RNB
