SexualChocolateThis week, join us and Tyler from Foothills Brewing for a four-beer flight, including Sexual Chocolate!

February IPA of The Month: “Meet Charlie The Corgi, whose impressive online following is matched only by his energy and “extreme cuteness”. To complement that robust personality, it only made sense to brew an IPA with bold experimental hops and a unique malt bill that, like Charlie, will lend a little sweetness to you life.” [6.5% abv]

Jade IPA: “Jade. Exotic jewel of the orient. Now a gem of an IPA. Bold, citrusy Pacific Jade hops lend striking tropical fruit notes and a hint of peppery finish to this easy-drinking IPA. Dry hop additions of Chinook and Citra add heady aroma and bold flavor. A special beer to charm the hop lover in you. Go ahead. Get Jaded.” [7.4% abv]

Foothills Stout: “Is there a more appropriately named beer style than stout? Dark, robust, opaquely possessive of heady aromas and rich fulfilling flavor, its name defines its assets. Ours is brewed with layers of roasted barley and black malts, and just enough flavor hops for a balanced smooth finish. By any definition, a superior beer.” [7.0% abv]

Sexual Chocolate: “A cocoa infused Imperial Stout. Opaque black in color with a dark brown head. Big chocolate aroma with notes of espresso, blackstrap molasses, dark sweet toffee and dark fruit. Smooth dark chocolate backbone with complex notes of coffee, dark toffee and dark fruit.” [9.75% abv]

Thursday Tasting: Oskar Blues with Amy Rubin 1/15/15, 5-7pm

Posted Jan 14, 2015 in Beer, Breweries, Events, New this week, Seasonals

PinnerOur first tasting of 2015 is with Amy Rubin of Oskar Blues. Join us tomorrow in the wee tasting room from 5:00-7:00 for a free beer flight.

Pinner Throwback IPA: “How do you cram as much hop & malt flavor and aroma as possible into a beer but make it crushable too? That’s the challenge we answered with PINNER Throwback IPA. At 4.9% ABV and 35 IBUs, this drinkable IPA uses several varieties of hops to target the ever-evolving flavor. With tropical fruits, citrus juices, pineapple and spice berry up front in the aroma and flavor, the biscuit & toasted bread at the back balance out all the hops and make a great finish to go on to your next can of PINNER. It’s the perfect beer for a little sip, sip, give.”

G’Knight: “Our ‘Velvet M-80′ is a hefty, dry hopped double-red ipa with a nose full of aroma, a sticky mouthfeel, a malty middle and unctuous hop flavors. G’Knight sports a surprisingly sensuous finish for a beer of its size (8.7% ABV, 60 IBUs). It’s brewed in tribute to a fellow Colorado craft beer pioneer and Vietnam vet who died fighting a 2002 wild fire outside of our Lyons hometown. For all the details behind this tribute follow this link to www.N3978Y.com . G’Mornin’. G’Day. G’Knight.”

Deviant Dale’s: “Deviant Dale’s IPA (8 percent ABV, 85 IBUs) was born at the crossroads, in a juke joint, as if Dale’s Pale Ale sold its soul to balance Deviant’s foreboding aromas of citrus, grapefruit rind and piney resins, its copper ball-of-fire color and inscrutable flavor-intense finish. Deviant is the Devil incarnate with untold amounts of malt and hedonistic Columbus dry-hopping. Oskar Blues delivers this boundary-buster in the brewery’s first 16-ounce tallboy can.”

Ten Fidy: “This titanic, immensely viscous stout is loaded with inimitable flavors of chocolate-covered caramel and coffee and hides a hefty 98 IBUs underneath the smooth blanket of malt. Ten FIDY (10.5% ABV) is made with enormous amounts of two-row malt, chocolate malt, roasted barley, flaked oats and hops. Ten FIDY is the ultimate celebration of dark malts and boundary-stretching beer.”
