While attending GABF you should take advantage of some special Colorado beer releases to take back with you to your friends and family. I’m pretty positive they will be forever greatful.
Crooked Stave Brewery – Origins Batch 2
Origins is a barrel aged burgundy sour. I couldn’t find a detailed description and haven’t tried it yet, but it gets very high ratings.
Best place to pick this up is at Crooked Stave Brewery. Also available in limited quantities at liquor stores such as Mr. B’s and Mile High Wine and Spirits.
Great Divide – Fresh Hop
Fresh Hop is a labor of love meant to be enjoyed today. Brewed in the fall with wet, whole cone hops from the Pacific Northwest, Fresh Hop is the embodiment of seasonality. Don’t age it. Keep it cold. Drink it now. Savoring this delightful pale ale during harvest season ensures that its unparalleled grassy, citrus hop brilliance will remain uncompromised.
Best place to pick this up is at Great Divide Brewery. Also available at liquor stores such as Mr. B’s and Mile High Wine and Spirits.
Avery – Rumpkin
We wondered what would happen if a monstrous pumpkin ale, plump full of spicy gourdiness, were aged in fine fresh rum barrels to add suggestions of delicate oak and candied molasses. Rumpkin is what happened! This first member of the Annual Barrel-Aged Series was brewed with roasted pumpkins from a local Boulder County farm, and spiced with nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger.
Very limited quantities remaining however you can pick it up at Highland Wine and Liquor at 10 AM on Friday during their special GABF release or they have 1 case left at Mayfair Liquors.
New Belgium – Le Terroir
Le Terroir is a french term meaning “of the earth.” Used to reference the environmental conditions that affect the brew, we like to think about the terroir of our foeders. These wooden barrels age our sour beer in varying temperatures, humidity, and vibrations. The terroir of New Belgium, so to speak. Add in another variable by dry-hopping with peachy, mango-like Amarillo hops, and we created a beer that changes every time we brew it.
You can find this at Highland Wine and Liquor.
All of these beers with the exception of Fresh Hops are limited in quantities. They are special releases and most produced only once a year. I would recommend calling ahead to the liquor stores. You can find their contact info below. Cheers!
