Another wave of great beers is about to enter the Denver-area, thanks to Crooked Stave Artisans. Get those wallets ready because they’re bringing out some heavy hitters this week. A fresh wave of Fremont is landing right now, which includes the return of their IPA, and UPA, along with some amazing new additions like Dark Star Imperial Oatmeal Stout, and the very elusive Cinnamon Coffee Bourbon Abominable. Nom, nom, nom.
Next week, look for a slew of great beers coming from 12% Imports. Domestic beers, Gypsy beers, Belgian beers. Beers.
Here’s a look at what to watch for, including descriptions from the breweries. Enjoy!
Fremont Brewing, Seattle, WA
77 Fremont Select – Session IPA
A crisp and refreshing spring wunderbeer, 77 Select is Fire Brewed in the pits of Fremont Brewing to achieve its rarefied Session IPA status. With this brew we respect Seattle’s old Horlucks & Sicks Brewing Companies, predecessors of Rainier Brewing, and their flagship beers 66 Select and Rainier. 4% ABV.
Dark Star Imperial Oatmeal Stout
Roasty, chocolate tones swirled with oatmeal smoothness and dark as the night. The Dark Star crashes, pouring its light into ashes, so follow as the Lady of Velvet recedes in the nights of goodbye. This one is too smooth … and at 8.0% ABV, dangerous.
Lovingly referred to by Fremonters as the B-BOMB, this bourbon barrel-aged edition of our winter ale has a warming spicy aroma and rich carmelly notes of bourbon, wood and vanilla added to dark roasty chocolatey malt flavors and subtle hopping. (Infused with coffee and cinnamon). 11% ABV.
Evil Twin Brewing, Brooklyn, NY
Ron and The Beast Ryan
In Denmark we have a lovely tradition for funky beer, and what you have here is certainly no exception. This is a never before seen collaboration between Ron and the Beast Ryan. A fluffy and precious Saison brewed on the beautiful island of Fano on the west coast of Denmark. It may sound like a true fairytale, but don’t be fooled by it’s cute appearance. 7% ABV.
Femme Fatale Brett
To take up the challenge and make a 100% true Brett beer can very easily become a fatal attraction for the Brewmaster. Once you get acquainted with Bretts irresistible, seductive, alluring and very charming nature, it will ensnare you and drive you to the point of obsession to create the desirable tangy, funky, tart flavor in ya mouth. 6% ABV.
From Amager With Love
Amager is an island south of picturesque Copenhagen, mostly notable as the home of the airport, the place you go to get high and the common colloquial name for Amager is Lorteøen (Shit Island). But Amager has much more to offer than you might think. Like these two dedicated brewers from Amager Bryghus, who traveled all the way from Amager to the states to brew a pitch-black and troublesome Imperial Stout infused with the cutest blueberries. It might look shitty, but once you let it sink in you can feel the love within. 12% ABV.
