As the final golden leaves rain down, we head to Denver with our beers for another exciting Great American Beer Festival. This year we are located in the Meet the Brewers Pavilion. Be sure to stop by to say hello to one of our beer clan. We are looking forward to seeing our Denver friends, trying new beers and go for the gold with some of our participating beers. Make sure to look us up if you’re wandering around!
GABF Competition Beers
It was definitely a challenge to select our beers that we were going to enter into the competition. While the odds are long, you can’t win unless you play. We tried to pick some interesting categories and ended up with quite a range. The Piña Colada IPA is made with our Elated IPA and is just a wonderful refreshing,fruity, solid beer. The hops really come through so you don’t end up with a sicky-sweet taste but a nice clean finish. Our Barking Dog Brown is entered in the English Dark Mild category. This beer is one of our most popular because it is such an easy beer to drink, low alcohol, malty flavor yet still one of our lightest bodied beers.
The Belgian and Saisons
We entered two of our saisons that we made this spring and summer aptly called our In Bloom Spring Saison and our Summer Summit Sunset Saison. With interesting add ins like hibiscus, mangos and ginger, these are refreshing and flavorful. The saison yeast profiles definitely shine through in a friendly way, not too strong. Our other signature beer is entered into the Belgian Strong Specialty Ale – Winter is Coming. The flavors and aromas are a cornucopia of dark fruits, earthy spices and caramel and chocolate malts.
Come stop by if you get a chance during the festival or later up in the mountains here in Silverthorne! Cheers!
