This weekend, we’ll be dropping two new barrel-aged beers!!! Availability differs on each, so listen up!
Fancy Effing Stout: The beer you’ve been practicing for. The bottle you crack when you want your friends to know you’re better than them. An imperial stout aged in Manhattan cocktail barrels, this is a necessary addition to any respectable cellar. Jet black and robust as hell, with decadent notes of dark malts, rye whiskey, sweet vermouth and a dash of bitters.
Fancy Effing Stout will be available on tap and in bombers-to-go ($15 each, half-case limit) starting Saturday August 29th at 1pm in the taproom. A limited amount will hit Colorado shelves, but if you want to make sure you score this one-of-a-kind brew, don’t miss out Saturday.
Quandary Single Cask No. 1: Our second release this weekend marks the first in a new series of ultra-limited barrel-aged brews, each aged in a single premium wine or spirit barrel.
Our friends at Davidson’s Liquors received a single cask of Old Scout Straight Bourbon Whiskey from Smooth Ambler Spirits selected just for them. They graciously offered us the freshly emptied barrel, and the Quandary Single Cask series was born. When the beer finished its rest, the folks at Davidson’s came down to help us hand-bottle it.
For this first release in the QSC series, only 30 cases were bottled. Due to the extremely limited nature of the beer, bottles will only be sold at Davidson’s this Saturday starting at 1pm ($11.99 each, limit two). This will also coincide with a side-by-side tasting of not only QSC, but also the bourbon the barrel originally held, and classic Quandary. This will allow you to taste the evolution of the beer from start to finish, how each component compliments the others to create a unique and deeply complex brew.
The next day, Sunday the 30th, we’ll tap the few kegs of QSC1 at 1pm. Bottles will not be sold at the brewery, and this will be your only chance to it on draft. We’ll keep pouring QSC1 til it’s gone, but with only two kegs, it will be fleeting.
So to recap, two can’t-miss-must-quaff beers this weekend: Fancy Effing Stout bottles & draft in the taproom Saturday, Quandary Single Cask bottles at Davidson’s Saturday, then on tap here Sunday.
Don’t slack on these…if you do, you’ll regret it.
