Join the Death by Coconut Cult Starting October 5

 

The beer gods must be appeased, so once a year we gather to make a coconut sacrifice to celebrate life’s two greatest joys – beer and dessert – which mystically come together in Death by Coconut Irish Porter. Bittersweet cacao and creamy coconut are intertwined in this rich, delightfully dessert-y porter. Join the cult and help us celebrate the 2018 release of Death by Coconut Irish Porter – taking over taprooms on October 5. Don’t worry, we won’t wash your brains or make you wear an unflattering shade of orange – the only initiation ritual is grabbing a 4-pack of Death by Coconut, a 6.5% ABV winter seasonal.

“No false advertising here – it’s as straightforward a chocolate-and-coconut beer as it gets,” said Juice Drapeau, Head Brewer at our Lyons pilot brewery. “The chocolate-y malt flavors and coconut aroma and flavor are nicely balanced, and it’s not as viscous as a stout, which makes it more palatable.” (more…)

Ten FIDY Imperial Stout

 

In a galaxy not-so-far away (the Oskar Blues brewery) brewers discovered a mathematical curiosity – a beer darker than dark – so dark that it sucked up massive amounts of flavor and allowed no light to penetrate its malty opaqueness – Ten FIDY Imperial Stout.

A black hole of burly malt flavor, Ten FIDY is made from immense amounts of big, dark malts including rich caramel malt, flavorful Munich malts and fluffy oats resulting in a giant, viscous, cosmic beer entity. FIDY gravitates toward flavors of chocolate-covered caramel, espresso, black licorice and plum. A phenomenon that’s been described as “Beer, only better and darker,” FIDY is as supermassive as ever this fall. What do you pair with a black hole? Think yourself up a special occasion (or not) and pair with ice cream, pot brownies, brownie brownies, or a nice cigar. (more…)

Six-Pack of Questions with Wildermiss

 

Didja know Denver-based Indie band Wildermiss is playing at the Underground Music Showcase? The quartet stopped by the Black Buzzard music venue on Market Street to crush some Mama’s Little Yella Pils, play us a secret set, and answer our six-pack of questions.

View the vid below to find out what Wildermiss had to say about the Underground Music Showcase, growing as a band in the Denver area and what type of beer they prefer. You’ll also get an intimate look at their double-chins…
