The Sum Of All Beers – Blending Collaboration With Avery and Powder Keg Brewing

As the 2nd Annual Collaboration Fest approaches, we wanted to share some of the breweries, stories, and people behind the beers that’ll be on display during this years event. Presented by Imbibe! and the Colorado Brewers Guild, and set to take place on Saturday, March 21st at Sports Authority Field in Denver, the festival will feature 50+ unique, one-off brews. Every beer being presented is a collaborative effort between a member of the Colorado Brewers Guild and one or more additional breweries. Read on for the fourth in a series of articles we’re presenting leading up to the event. Hope you enjoy!

Collaboration Fest sets the stage for an unprecedented level of cooperation and interaction between breweries far and wide. The usual model is two (or more) breweries come together to design a beer that plays to their strengths, and then brew it up together for us to enjoy. Powder Keg Brewing and Avery Brewing decided to take another approach and used this opportunity to blend beers from their respective Barrel Programs.

Just days after Avery Brewing served their last customer in the Avery Alley, Chief Barrel Herder Andy Parker played host to brewers from both Avery and Powder Keg to select a blend that accentuated the key elements of each brewery.

Powder Keg’s a young brewery from Niwot, CO, that’s already making a name for themselves, thanks to the variety of well-crafted beers coming from Brewer Philip Joyce. Powder Keg brought their Lettre Rouge, which ended up serving as the base beer in the blend. Lettre Rouge made its debut at January’s Big Beers, Belgians & Barleywines event and made it to our “12 Can’t Miss Beers” list. Joyce describes Lettre Rouge as a Farmhouse Ale, brewed with citrus, hibiscus, Lacto, and Powder Keg’s house Brett strain. The delicate beer spent 4 months aging in Cabernet wine barrels, before being blended and released.

Boulder’s Avery Brewing needs no introduction. Barrel-Herder Andy Parker had quite a few different beers to select from, as the Avery barrel collection is now sitting at roughly 800 barrels! For this particular blend, Parker selected 8 beers to sample and experiment with. Some might be familiar Avery offerings, like Eremita VIII and Bad Karma. Others are brand new and could potentially debut in 2015, such as the delicious Raspberry Sour or complex Manhattan Sour.

From there, we sampled our way through the entire lineup of 9 beers, taking notes and discussing the defining characteristics of each. The goal was to create something new that didn’t overpower the subtleties of Powder Keg’s Lettre Rouge. The grapefruit and hibiscus notes could easily have been overpowered by some of Avery’s stronger beers like the Tequila Barrel-Aged Bad Karma or the stone fruit notes of Eremita VIII.

The afternoon turned into a fun game of mixing, sampling, and determining what worked and what didn’t.

Ultimately, two blends were selected to create a larger batch, which was then chilled, carbonated, sampled and voted upon in a blind tasting panel:  Read more »

sanitas bramble

Sanitas Brewing Introduces Bramble Blackberry Sour

Boulder’s Sanitas Brewing is ready to release the second beer in their newly launched Wild and Sour Project. Bramble will be available on draft in the Tap Room beginning on Monday, February 23rd. The beer’s a 4% ABV Barrel-Aged Sour that was fermented with blackberries.

Scroll down for more details.

SANITAS BREWING CO. ANNOUNCES SECOND RELEASE IN WILD AND SOUR PROJECT

BOULDER, COLORADO, FEBRUARY 20, 2015 – On the heels of the first release in Sanitas Brewing Company’s new Wild and Sour Project, the Boulder brewery is set to unveil the second installment in the series. Bramble, a blackberry sour ale, will be released on draft at Sanitas’ Tap Room on Monday, February 23rd

“We often hear people say they don’t like fruit beers,” explained Sanitas’ Co-Founder Zach Nichols, “Bramble will make them second guess that notion. It’s loaded with complex sour notes, deep oak undertones, and finishes crisp and dry with a lingering blackberry characteristic.” 

The brewers at Sanitas brewed a batch of pale wort last Winter. The beer was then transferred to and fermented in neutral oak barrels with a proprietary blend of wild yeast and bacteria. Blackberries were added near the end of fermentation for further layers of complexity.  Pouring light ruby in color and 4% ABV., Bramble is a beautiful example of sour, barrel-fermented fruit beer.

Bramble will be released to the public in Sanitas’ Tap Room Monday, February 23rd when they open at 3pm.

About Sanitas Brewing Co.

Founded in 2013, Boulder’s Sanitas Brewing Company is regarded for their signature blend of tradition and innovation as well as their use of only the finest ingredients. With a passion for exploration, Sanitas epitomizes the wild spirit of Colorado with a variety of premium beers.

green flash cellar 3

Green Flash Brewing Announces Cellar 3 Series

It’s shaping up to be a big year for Green Flash Brewing. After recently acquiring Alpine Beer Co., the brewery has now announced their plans to open a second facility in San Diego, CA this Spring. The new location will focus on small-scale, barrel-aged offerings and will include 750 mL, corked and caged bottles for distribution throughout the U.S.

The program, which is named Cellar 3, first release will be Silva Stout aged in Bourbon Barrels. The beer’s expected to launch in April.

Other upcoming releases include Flanders Drive (Sour Flanders Ale), Le Freak Barrique (Belgian Style IPA  aged in Red Wine Barrels), Rayon Vert (Belgian Pale Ale w/ Brett) and multiple fruit releases, beginning with Natura Morta Plum.

You’ll find more details on Cellar 3 in the Press Release below.

SAN DIEGO, CA (February 19th, 2015) —Today, Co-Founders of Green Flash Brewing Co, Mike and Lisa Hinkley, officially announce plans for the national debut of Cellar 3, a series of rare, barrel-aged beer offerings and expansion to a 2nd San Diego facility. After announcing the 2015 Hop Odyssey lineup of hop-focused session IPAs last week, Green Flash Cellar 3 offers consumers a taste from the opposite end of the craft spectrum with a lineup of elevated, limited reserve offerings that will round out the national Green Flash portfolio. With construction of the Cellar 3 packaging facility now complete, Green Flash will roll out the series to retailers beginning in April, and plans to open a public tasting room later this spring. Cellar 3 is located in the eastern part of San Diego County’s Poway neighborhood, with over 12,000 square feet dedicated to the art of craft beer innovation through barrel-aging and wild yeast experimentation. The new facility will allow Brewmaster, Chuck Silva along with Barrelmaster, Pat Korn to focus on expanding the rare beer lineup and will significantly increase production of several highly sought after Green Flash ales. The first Cellar 3 release to reach consumers in April will be fan favorite, Silva Stout, an award-winning bourbon barrel aged ale that is coveted by craft beer lovers worldwide. Silva Stout – and each subsequently released Cellar 3 beer – will be packaged in artfully designed 750 ml cork-finished bottles available from coast to coast. Consumers can expect Cellar 3 750 ml bottles to range from $9 to $19 at retail.

cellar 3 silva stout“We began with a Temecula Red Wine Barrel which we filled with Le Freak as an experiment in 2006,” explains Brewmaster Chuck Silva. “From that barrel, we created our first batch of what we called Super Freak and developed a house yeast strain that we still use to this day. We knew we were on to something special and sourced as many barrels as possible, and then patiently waited out the aging process. After we secured a medal at GABF for Silva Stout, the demand for our barrel-aged and rare ales soared, as did our brewers passion for the process.”

While the Cellar 3 concept began to take shape behind the scenes, Chuck appointed Green Flash brewer, Pat Korn as Barrelmaster to ensure the program would be in good hands. As Barrelmaster, Pat oversees Cellar 3 operations on-site and works closely with Chuck to choose the barrels used and create recipes for innovative new ales as well as to perfect the recipes of longtime favorites.

Cellar 3 currently houses a variety of over 800 barrels including four 50-barrel foudres, is equipped with fermentation and conditioning tanks ranging from 10 to 50 barrels as well as a cork and cage bottling line. In late spring 2015, Green Flash will open the Cellar 3 Tasting Room to the public, offering a new destination with a design inspired by the idea of evolving craft beer into an art form.

“As the number of funky barrels grew at the Mira Mesa brew house, it became necessary to find a separate facility to house the wild yeast projects and make room for additional barrels. With Cellars 1 and 2 making up the Mira Mesa facility, we began the hunt for a 2nd facility and began to refer to the project as Cellar 3, a name that naturally evolved and stuck” explains Green Flash Co-Founder and CEO, Mike Hinkley. “Finding the right space to meet the brewer’s needs was our first priority when selecting a building, and we scoured San Diego County’s available offerings. When we found the Poway location, we recognized there was a tremendous opportunity to sufficiently evolve the program and pioneer new craft beer territory as the neighborhood’s only destination dedicated to both creating and sampling rare, barrel-aged ales.”  Read more »

The Return of New Belgium’s La Folie, Transatlantique Kriek, and Cocoa Molé

New Belgium has released the 2015 batches of La Folie, and Transatlantique Kriek, as well as a new take on Cocoa Molé. The brewery plans to keep both La Folie and Transatlantique Kriek available throughout 2015, while Cocoa Molé will only be available for a limited time.

Scroll down for details on this year’s blends and grab some bottles for your cellar today.

(Ft. Collins, CO)  – New Belgium Brewing is releasing 2015’s La Folie and Transatlantique Kriek while reissuing a new Cocoa Molé, offering an inventive mixture of sour, sweet, heat and tradition. Two of these Lips of Faith additions (Transatlantique Kriek and La Folie) will remain out through the remainder of 2015 and Cocoa Molé will be out through March, or while supplies last.

La Folie, French for “the folly” and New Belgium’s earliest sour beer release dating back to 1997, returns yet again to offer this year’s sour delight. A wood-conditioned brown ale, La Folie ages one to three years in French oak foeders formerly used in wine production. The result? A smooth oaky nose and delightfully tart finish. This one-of-a-kind sour brown ale is sharp like a lambic, sour in the finish, and full of green apple, cherry, and plum-skin notes. It pours a deep mahogany.

La Folie is 7 percent ABV and available in 22-oz. bombers and on draft.

Transatlantique Kriek offers another dose of sour that’s crisp and effervescent. The 2015 edition of Transatlantique Kriek began life in the oaken vessels of Gert Christiaens’ Oud Beersel brewery, deep in Belgium’s Senne Valley. After it wood aged, Oud Beersel’s lambic was blended with tart cherries and shipped across the pond to New Belgium Brewmaster, Peter Bouckaert. In concert with Oud Beersel’s cherry lambic ale, Bouckaert created a full golden brew to blend in and round out this kriek. The result is an intense cherry nose leading to a pleasing sweet-tart flash finish across the palate.

Transatlantique Kriek is 8 percent ABV and is available in 22-oz. bombers and on draft.

For a behind the scenes look at the release party for these sours check out the “epicness” from the Lost in the Woods party here. To learn more about the history of New Belgium’s sour program click here.

The third, Lips of Faith release is Cocoa Molé, a spiced chocolate porter. The beer combines chocolate, cinnamon and chilies for a sweet and spicy burst of fun. Brewed with deep caramel and dark chocolate malts, plus a healthy dash of chocolate rye, it pours midnight dark with a subtle, reddish hue and pillowy, burnished head atop. Starting on the tongue with the sweet chocolate and finishing with a fine-spun heat of peppers, Cocoa Molé is a worldly contrast in a glass – olé.

Odell Brewing introduces Sour Golden Raspberry Ale

Fort Collins, CO. – In early March, Odell Brewing will release Brazzle Sour Golden Raspberry Ale. Part of the brewery’s Cellar Series, Brazzle is an oak aged golden ale brewed with golden raspberries.

“We used golden raspberries to brew with, which gives this sour a touch of sweetness. There is also a bright, tart fruit and citrus flavor that comes through,” said Barrel Aging/Pilot System Manager, Brent Cordle. “The sour acidity plays well with the raspberry flavor. This is a very unique sour, and WELL worth the wait!”

odell brazzle bottleThe base beer in Brazzle is a crisp golden ale that was aged and soured in former Woodcut barrels for a little over two years. 300 pounds of raspberries were added before and after the barrel aging process, giving the beer both a puckering tartness and a hint of raspberry sweetness.

Old School Ties Give Birth to Collaboration Beer

As the 2nd Annual Collaboration Fest approaches, we wanted to share some of the breweries, stories, and people behind the beers that’ll be on display during this years event. Presented by Imbibe! and the Colorado Brewers Guild, and set to take place on Saturday, March 21st at Sports Authority Field in Denver, the festival will feature 50+ unique, one-off brews. Every beer being presented is a collaborative effort between a member of the Colorado Brewers Guild and one or more additional breweries. Read on for the third in a series of articles we’re presenting leading up to the event. Hope you enjoy!

Getting a new roommate is always a crapshoot. You can never tell if you’ll get along with someone until you are in the thick of it, living together in the trenches. At its best, lifetime friendships are formed, at its worst, you lie awake at night waiting for your lease to end. Luckily for patrons of the upcoming Collaboration Fest, when it came time for André Guionnaud and Dustin Darker to find college roommates, serendipity smiled and a friendship blossomed. The two met while students at the University of Central Florida, where they discovered the joys of homebrewing, and turned a corner that would change their paths forever.

These days, André works at Tampa’s Cigar City Brewing, where he’s a Brewer and Director of Quality Control, while Dustin works here in Denver, in the Taproom at Station 26 Brewing Co. Joining Dustin at Station 26 is Devin Chapnick, yet another college buddy. The ties that bind has resulted in a win for the Denver beer drinking community as the friends recently coordinated a collaboration brew between their breweries.

s26 / cigar city 1

Rounding out the collaboration is Station 26 Owner Justin Baccary, and Head Brewer Wayne Waananen. Together, the group hit upon the idea of a White IPA with an amazing array of floral hops. André said he was inspired by Colorado’s water and wanted to brew something bright to highlight the clarity and purity. He wanted to share “a taste of Florida”, with a strong dose of citrus in a beer that’s “as in your face as possible”.

The beer, christened Snowbird, is heavily dosed with 90 lbs of hops in the 30 BBL batch, which was brewed over a two-day period at Station 26. Exotic hop varieties such as Lemondrop and Mandarina Bavaria play alongside stalwarts Apollo, Amarillo, Citra and Galaxy to create an amazingly flavorful beer that we are dying to try.

s26

This White IPA is made with 40% wheat and 10% oats, supplementing the 50% American barley base grain that will weigh in at roughly 7% ABV. Add to this flavorful concoction locally sourced, freshly ground orange peel and you have an amazing palate pleaser that is sure to go quickly. During the brew day, the brewhouse smelled like a vat of fruit punch, with so much depth of flavor, it was all we could do to keep our heads out of the brew kettle.

s26 / cigar city 2

Your first opportunity to sample Snowbird will be at Imbibe’s Collaboration Fest on March 21st. Get your tickets and we’ll see you there!
