Emerald Irish Stout

While our Irish Stout is produced and released with St. Patrick’s Day in mind, an Irish Stout can be, and should be, so much more than just a St. Pat’s Day treat. That being said, I certainly had my fair share of Stouts last night. But we shouldn’t let the word “stout” scare us off. Read More

Coda Coffee Porter

There’s an old and famous saying in the wine industry that “It takes a lot of great beer to make great wine.” Russian River Brewing Company in the heart of California wine country even makes a beer named that. The reason is that when workers on the vineyard are sweating in the sun, they’re usually Read More

Czech the Rhime Pilsner

I’ll admit it, when I first got into craft beer, I didn’t give lagers, especially Pilsners, much respect. To me, the word “lager” was synonymous with with the bland, yellow, fizzy stuff I was trying to move away from. It certainly didn’t help that German and Czech lagers actually are yellow and have higher carbonation Read More

Ziggy SimcoeDust Pale Ale

We were already working on a recipe for a new lower alcohol pale ale when we heard of David Bowie’s passing. Although I have never been a Bowie superfan, I respected him and his work. One of our assistant brewers, Nathan, suggested we make a Bowie tribute beer. I knew that the new pale ale Read More

The Wall White Stout

Is there anybody out there? One of the best concerts I have ever been to was seeing Roger Waters perform The Wall live in it’s entirety. It was fashioned after the old Pink Floyd shows, with the building of the wall between the band and the audience during the first half, before ultimately blasting it Read More

Animals American Rye Stout

Animals is Pink Floyd’s darkest and most bitter album, narrowing the entire human race into three classes, conniving, insincere and aggressive businessmen (“Dogs”), the hypocritical, greedy and callous upper class and government (“Pigs”) and meek, obedient and dim peasants (“Sheep”). Jeez, which one do you think you are? The album is loosely based on George Read More

Boxer Saison

Saison might have been the first beer style that made me go “whoa.” I had drank a lot of American craft styles, such as Ambers, Browns, Stouts, Pale Ales and IPAs, but hadn’t ventured into the Belgian styles yet. I think my first Saison was probably Ommegang’s “Hennepin” or Boulevard’s “Tank 7.” Once I got Read More

Wish You Were Here-Blood Orange Black IPA

Wish You Were Here may not be as well known as the massive, globally successful Dark Side of the Moon, but it may be Floyd at their absolute peak. After breaking from their normal song structure on Dark Side, Floyd returned a bit to the style of their previous works, designing longer and experimental songs. Read More

Alpenglow Winter Warmer

Originally named Whale’s Tail Winter Warmer after the ski run at Breckenridge, Alpenglow is one of our oldest recipes from our homebrew days, and it was the first beer we won an award with. We had been homebrewing for less than a year and we finally felt comfortable entering beers into competition, so we entered Read More

Belgian Strong Dark…Side of the Moon

It starts with silence, like someone forgot to press the right button. But then here it comes slowly, a heartbeat. And it’s just a heartbeat for a short time, growing louder, a constant thumping coming through the speakers. Soon there’s a swooshing, then a chatter like noise, then some light, almost indistinguishable talking complemented by Read More
