The Lowdown: For this holiday season there are a lot of great gifts for the beer lover in your life – even if you are unsure of their favorite style or brewery. This year, New Belgium Brewing Company has brought back the Imperial Frambozen. This edition is not just decadent in its raspberry flavor but New Belgium has added 70 percent pure dark Ghana cocoa husks. Imagine biting into a dark chocolate candy and having the raspberry explode on your tongue (find beer here). If you are looking for beers that will keep friends and family warm during the winter – look no further than the Pack of Yetis from Great Divide Brewing Company. This mix pack will feature any combination of Espresso Oak Aged Yeti, Chai Yeti, Oatmeal Yeti, Oak Aged Yeti and the original Yeti Imperial Stout. Each pack will come with three different Yetis and carabiner Yeti mug (available in the tap room). For the beer lover who tends to linger on the sour side you can’t go wrong with any of the offerings from Avery Brewing Company’s Barrels and Botanicals Series. The Raspberry Sour, Apricot Sour, Ginger Sour or the Tangerine Quad is perfect for any get together – particularly one involving a nice cheese plate. If you are worried about picking the wrong beer then we even have a solution for you – Craft Alley. Give a gift card to Craft Alley – Denver’s only liquor store dedicated to crowlers so your favorite beer lover can pick their favorite brews onsite or select to have it delivered in the greater Denver area.”
