Nightmare Fuel!!!

A huge thank you to everyone who came out this past weekend for our final days at 24th and Blake. We had a great time, and can’t express how much your support means to us as we work to open our new spot at 6021 Washington.

Aside from the Funk the Man series, one of the stars of the show was Nightmare Fuel, our 13.5% imperial stout brewed with whole bean coffee.

If you missed the keg of Nightmare we tapped Friday (cause it went fast!), don’t fret. You can still get some!

Starting this week, bombers of Nightmare Fuel will appear on store shelves around Colorado. Since we don’t currently have a taproom open, we sadly can’t host a release party, so start calling your local bottle shop and see when they’re getting it!

During our transition, we’ll also host events at great beer bars around town, self-deemed “satellite taprooms.” The first is Thursday, November 5th at Stapleton Taphouse and will feature all three versions of Funk the Man. The first keg of Nightmare Fuel, however, will be tapped the following Thursday, November 12th at Jake’s Brew Bar in Littleton!

Those asking about Nightmare last weekend also may have heard about our plan to sell bottles at a future loading dock sale. While we will save some for just that reason, we have to wait until our licenses transfer. At that time, you’ll be able to come down, snag a couple bottles and check out our progress on the new space.

But in the meantime, if you’re fiending for some boozy, boozy coffee, keep your eyes peeled for bottles of Nightmare Fuel around town this week!

And speaking of awesome beers hitting shelves, you’ll see a bit of Funk the Man #2 and Funk the Man #3 around town soon as well! Then in early December, we’ll release Barrel-Aged Avarice in similar fashion. Because no matter what, we need fun brews to drink too!

Cheers,

RNB

Funk the Man: A Farewell to 2401 Blake Street

On October 24th, we’ll officially say goodbye to 2401 Blake St – our first home – recently sentenced to death by bulldozer.

But in the meantime, we intend to party.

To commemorate the demise of our original location, we’ll celebrate with “Funk the Man,” three weeks of farewell shindigs paying tribute to insatiable redevelopment, growth for the sake of growth and cash over community.

Funk the Man is more than just an ideal. It’s also a beer. A series of bretted saisons from our barrel archives, in fact.

Funk the Man #1, aged in cabernet barrels, drops October 10th. Funk the Man #2, which features hibiscus, continues the party on October 17th. Funk the Man #3, with black currant, will serve as the capstone to our final brewhouse party October 23rd and 24th. The entire FTM series will be available on tap and in 375ml bottles on their respective release dates.

As the countdown clock dwindles, we’ll clear out the back, moving equipment and making room for even larger celebrations. In addition to Funk the Man, we still have a slew of barrel-aged kegs from the past year, and while we could move everything, we prefer to drink it with you!

All cheekiness aside, in the 3-plus years we’ve spent here, we’ve shared countless pints, forged immeasurable friendships, and have infinitely fond memories of 24th and Blake.

When the bulldozers come, we’ll shed a tear. But for now, let’s raise a glass.

Join us now, and in a couple months for our reincarnation at 6021 Washington Street.

The most sincere of Cheers,

RNB
