BEERS NOW on tap:
GUNNY GOLD KÖLSCH
Our Kölsch is brewed using very traditional methods and presents very similar to those you'd drink in Köln, Germany. Light and crisp with noble hop aroma and flavor. A hit with all beer drinkers!
GREEN GATE IPA
A true West Coast IPA for hopheads and folks looking to expand their palates with a very special beer. Made with two row, crystal malts and select hop varieties that take the stage. Citrus and stone fruit (think peach and apricot) flavors are gathered from copious amounts of Citra and Mosaic hops. A taste explosion in your mouth.
THE 111 PALE ALE
Released on January 11 at 1:11pm. This isn't your standard pale ale. We added an absurd amount of hops including CTZ, El Dorado, Simcoe and Rakau. All of those hops sit nicely atop a generous amount of malty grains that balance out a 111 BU beer. Tropical fruit, citrus, and piney resin flavors layer on your palate as you enjoy this unique creation.
HIGH STOKE SCOTCH ALE
Our first collaboration with our friends at Eddyline Brewing in Buena Vista, CO. We couldn't be more excited about this beer! A very traditional Scotch Ale that exudes caramel and malt flavors. We added a small amount of Rauch (smoked) grain to compliment the malt flavors, which blend together perfectly. Stay tuned for another batch of this to be packaged in cans very soon!
OLD CRANK BARLEYWINE
An American Barleywine with 12 different grains and a very solid hop presence at 82 IBU's. Think layers of toffee, bread pudding, and dark stone fruit melding with pine resin and pleasant bitterness. We aged the batch for 14 months- half of the beer aged in stainless steel and the other half aged in Quintessa and Prisoner Wine barrels. Come in and compare the differences!
ANTHRACITE AMBER ALE
This amber ale is delectably caramelly and finishes with a light citrus flavor due to the Cascade hops used in the brewing process.
JAH BROWN ALE
Back by popular demand, we have rereleased Jah Brown for the fall season. Chocolate, coffee and a sweet nuttiness balance nicely with a light citrus hop profile. Very palatable and approachable.
SOL'S EPRESSO STOUT
A delightful chocolate stout that has been infused with just the right amount of espresso from our friends at Crowfoot Valley Coffee in Castle Rock, CO. A perfect breakfast beverage that also pairs perfectly with our Guadalupe BBQ pizza or one of our desserts like our house-made Beeramisu!
This Imperial Stout is the precursor to The Matron. Our fourth stout of six in our Stouts of November. Flavors of chocolate, raisin and sourdough are embedded in a rich malty body. This one is on for a limited time, folks!
Released on the first day of ski season (a day before Thanksgiving), The Matron is one of the most decadent beers we've ever conceived. We start with The Maiden, which is a Foreign Style Imperial Stout and age it in Deerhammer American Single Malt Whiskey barrels for a full year. The result is a silky, chocolatey creation of pure goodness and refinement. You cannot miss out on this beer.
BEERS COMING SOON:
PANDY FACKLER OUD BRUIN
A fantastic brown sour, Oud Bruin that has been barrel aged in Prisoner Wine barrels. Our great friends at Sandia Wine Company provided us with only the finest wine barrels. This is a very special beer that is slated to release in June 2018.
OLD CRANK BARLEYWINE
Barleywine is one of our favorite styles of beer. We created our version of an American style Barleywine and we've been aging it in Prisoner and Quintessa wine barrels for months. The result is a very refined and complex liquid. We anticipate rolling this out sometime in early 2018.
SUPER SOL'S ESPRESSO STOUT
A version of our Sol's Espresso Stout, but a higher ABV and conditioned in stainless steel for seven months.
BARREL AGED SUPER SOL'S ESPRESSO STOUT
A version of our Sol's Espresso Stout, but a higher ABV and barrel aged for seven months in Deerhammer American Single Malt Whiskey barrels! Not only that, we also added toasted coconut to round out the flavor profile to make a one of a kind beer.
