Fresh Year, Fresh Beer


Got a case of the post-holiday blues? We have the antidote—fresh beer releases! Available January through March, these are the perfect beers to get you smiling through the toughest winter months. Check our BeerFinder to find some near you!

Orabelle is brewed with barley, wheat, oats and rye. This Belgian-Style Tripel is a golden beauty. Its two yeast strains, orange peel and dash of coriander impart surprising complexity and richness to this delicate ale. Don’t let Orabelle’s demure nature fool you; this is one flavorful pour. Watch out, she’s a charmer—one sip and you’ll be in love.
Espresso Oak Aged Yeti A generous infusion of Denver’s own Pablo’s espresso adds yet another layer of complexity to this beer, combining with the vanilla oak character, intense roasty maltiness and bold hop profile to create a whole new breed of mythical creature. It’s official: You can now have Yeti with breakfast.

Construction Cam

It was only a few months ago that we had an empty five acre lot, devoid of much more than a promising future as our second home. Like all proud parents, we couldn’t believe how fast our baby was growing up, so we installed a Construction Cam to keep up with the action. Now you can check out the time-lapse footage to watch the new site transform with us. Check it out here!

Limited Release

BA Hiber bottle shot 2014

For all of you Hibernation fans out there, you may want to sit down for this. Well, first sit down, then get ready to run to the liquor store. This week bottles of Barrel Aged Hibernation will start hitting shelves, but they won’t stay there for long. Over 12 months in whiskey barrels has completely transformed our prized winter seasonal, producing a Hibernation that starts with big whiskey notes before mellowing out into luscious chocolate, dark fruit and vanilla. If you can only take one beer into your cave this winter, we strongly suggest this one.

Winter Wondergrass Music, Brews and Mountains is the motif for the Winter WonderGrass Festival returning to the Vail Valley February 20-22nd, 2015 for it’s third year.  Winter WonderGrass Festival will feature more than 20 bands and 15 Colorado breweries over three days.  WinterWonderGrass Festival is the perfect storm of world-class bluegrass and acoustic artists, craft beer and libations and star filled Rocky Mountain nights encapsulating all things Colorado.
Fans can stroll the grounds, fresh off the mountain, still wearing their winter snow gear rotating between the two heated beer tents which are flanking the main stage and overlooking Nottingham Lake.  The beer tents will host the Colorado breweries where they will pour their signature brews from 2:30-5:30 pm each day along side the Pickin’ Perch and Jamboree stages.
