epic sour brainless peaches label

Epic Brewing Announces Sour Brainless on Peaches Release Party

The third iteration of Sour Brainless on Peaches has already hit some fine liquor store establishments around the metro area, and there is a planned release party at Epic Brewing Company’s Denver taproom this Saturday, May 13th, when doors open at Noon.

We were lucky enough to catch up with Ant Baez, Epic’s Barrel Blender and man in charge of all their barrel-aged beers and sours, to taste batches 1, 2, and 3 side-by-side and learn more about all of the hard work that goes into this special beer.

Epic and Ant have been producing this beer since 2013, when they acquired their original 3 foeders from New Belgium. They have now expanded the program to 14 foeders, which Ant can rattle off the names of in less than 4 seconds, but the original 3 (Emily which is funky and earthy, Molly brings citric and lemon tartness, and Stacy with an acidic bite), make up the base beer for Sour Brainless on Peaches.

epic foeders

The beer is made by using the Solera method, which allows for continued bacterial growth and maturation over time. Solera is a process that uses the same vessel repeatedly by only draining a portion of that vessel, leaving some of the original beer behind. No bacteria has been added since 2013!

The fun for Ant comes in figuring out how the beer is changing over time and working to grow up together. In his own words, “Sour beer is a rollercoaster of emotions.” It takes a lot of patience. Once the foeders work their magic on the base, which takes a minimum of one year, the beer is transferred into barrels with peach puree. From there, Ant, a self-proclaimed “flavor engineer,” tastes the beers frequently and rates them on a scale of 1-5, with 5 being the very best. You might think you could simply blend all the 4’s and 5’s and call it a day, but it is a much more complicated art. There is a place for some 2’s and 3’s in the blended batch to round out the flavor profile just how he wants it.

epic3

Tasting Notes:

Batch 1- Acidic and funky, lots of peach flesh, juicy like the inner part of a peach.

Batch 2- Much more citric tart, like a lemon. Peach skins.

Batch 3- Very citric, more tropical up front, super tart.

This is our Mothers Day beer – something for Moms to enjoy and that transports them to a place of relaxation and salvation – the garden. This beer is made with fresh beets and garnished with edible Nasturtium flowers grown and harvested at The GrowHaus – a very special place in our community.

Traditionally, Mothers Day in Denver signals the last frost, and therefore the time of the year that we start to really plant veggies and flowers in the garden. In this vein, we wanted to create something that tasted like the garden – in a very pleasant way!

The beer is chocolatey, creamy, rounded, delicately earthy, and tastes pleasantly of the garden. The beet character is nuanced but noticeable and the Nasturtium flowers are spicy and crisp! This is a beer unlike any other.

Black Shirt Brewing is located at: 3719 Walnut St, Denver, CO.

Come join us for our monthly taproom only release party! This month, we are releasing 2 beers on the same day. We are releasing a collab IPA, and a barrel aged Saison. See details below.

1) Kaptain Ka-Powder (6pks of our version only & draft)
Collaborative juicy IPA brewed with Upslope Brewing. We each brewed the beer with hop products containing no leaf matter. OUR VERSION was brewed with lupulin powder (Mosaic and Simcoe), THEIR VERSION was brewed with hop extracts. We will have a limited quantity of the Upslope version on tap during the release party.

2) Barrel Aged Liftmaster 13,000 (500ml only, no draft)
Mixed-culture Bier De Garage fermented and aged in a fresh chardonnay barrel. The result is a moderately tart vinous beer with bright flavor, and contributions of white wine, fresh oak, and young brett.

spangalang anniversary

Spangalang is celebrating 2 years of brewing beer in Five Points with beer releases (and re-releases), a pig roast and fantastic live jazz. Here are the details:

Beer (All day, All night): We’ll post a detailed beer list on Tuesday (4/11), but in the meantime, we can tell you that it’s going to be a blend of never released barrel aged beers, some old goodies we’ve managed to tuck away, and many of the usual taproom favorites.

*2nd Anniversary Beer (See note below)
Sugarfoot Belgian Table Beer 
Beatrice Saison  
Blackberry Junction (Blackberry Sour)
Birth of Cool (Cucumber Gose)
Vie en Rose (Berliner w/ Rose Hips)
American Sour
Le Voyage (Strong Sour Ale)
Liger (Ale/Lager Hybrid)
Dry Hopped Liger
D-Train IPA
Crockett Launcher (Belgian Quad aged in Red Wine Barrels)
Nightwalker Imperial Stout
Con Alma (Imperial Stout re-fermented w/ Red Wine Grape Must)
Barrel Aged Nightwalker Blend

*Our 2nd Anniversary Beer is an homage to one of our favorite beers of all time, Orval. Call us old school, but we think Orval is about as close to perfect as a beer can get. We created a Belgian Pale, dry hopped it, and then aged it on Brettanomyces. While it’s no Orval, we love the results.

Pig (2pm-ish): Brewer’s are good at brewing beer, not roasting pigs. We realized this early on, and so when we decided to roast a pig for this party, we also decided to ask some friends for help. We are incredibly lucky that Chef Kyle Foster (opening Julep on Larimer St) and Tyler Dubois (Co-Owner of The Real Dill and Co-Founder of the Pickle and Beer Society) have agreed to perform this culinary feat for us. Our hope is to start serving pig around 2pm. Sides will be included.

Music:
 Tigon (Greg Harris, Patrick McDevitt and Alejandro Castano): 3pm-6pm.

The Mike Schwartz Band: 7pm-10pm

See you on Saturday!

This Opening Day, join Ratio Beerworks in celebrating the return of spring and the time honored tradition of a cold refreshing beer-in-hand for America’s national pasttime. On April 7th, Ratio Beerworks is re-releasing Handwritten Belgian Wit.

There’s something to be said about a universal connection, either through the conduit of a familiar song, an emotion, or even a beer. Handwritten is our twist on a classic Belgian Wit with tea-cut orange peel and ground coriander. Familiar in flavor profile and ubiquitous enough for any occasion, Handwritten is a connector, a unifier, a true beer soul-mate and companion. The abbey yeast strain gives off more floral, fruit-forward notes than a classic wit yeast, but still rounds out with a recognizable, balanced, clean, crushable finish.

Handwritten will be tapped when the brewery opens at Noon so drop in for a taste before first pitch.

Ratio Beerworks is located at: 2920 Larimer St, Denver, CO.

weldwerks peach climacteric

After more than 2 years of patiently waiting, we are finally ready for the first official bottle release from our barrel-aged sour pogram on Saturday, April 8th, Peach Climacteric! Here’s the official description for Peach Climacteric:

Peach Climacteric is the first official release from our barrel-aged sour program and represents the culmination of nearly 2 years of work, which began when we opened our doors back in 2015. We started with a blend of various batches of pale golden sours, fermented with multiple strains of Brettanomyces and bacteria and aged in oak barrels for anywhere from 4-16 months. The climacteric event marks the peak of edible ripeness for fruit and Peach Climacteric certainly lives up to that description after aging the blend with over 1,600 pounds of fresh peaches from Palisade, CO (nearly 4 pounds of peaches per gallon).

We know many of you have been just as anxious for its release as we are and we can’t wait to share it with you. Peach Climacteric will be our first 750 mL bottle release, and is also the first beer we have bottle conditioned, thanks to a TON of help from our friends at Wiley Roots Brewing Company, who not only let us borrow their bottle filler, but also helped us figure out the entire process.

In an effort to make this release as smooth as possible and alleviate some of the logistical challenges with a release this size, we will be selling tickets online through Eventbrite before the event, which will be exchanged for bottles, picked up in person at the brewery on April 8th between 11 am and 5 pm.
