a night to remember

Weekend Beer Buzz 07/14/2016

So Pokémon Go happened this week. I still have no idea what’s going on, but what’s new. I’m trying to equate it to Untappd. Looks like in Pokémon Go, people run around catching imaginary creatures. With Untappd, people run around chasing #waelzbro. Got it. From there, you collect and train your creatures to obtain bragging rights for your team at the gym. With Untappd, you collect merit badges, ticks and check-ins for bragging rights to your beer friends. Am I off? Help me out here so I can play with my kids.

At any rate, good luck out there. Have fun and be safe.

In other news, it’s hot and getting hotter, but we’ve got some great happenings to get you hydrated and cool you down for the weekend.

River North Brewery Launches Whiskey Barrel Quandary

River North Brewery is settling in nicely to their new home. The beers have been tapped, the corn hole games are outside and the barrel-aged brews are beginning to blossom. The 2016 batch of Whiskey Barrel Quandary will debut at the taproom on Saturday, July 16th.

18 months in the making, this delicious Belgian-style Quad serves up layers of rich malt and dark fruits. Bottles will be available for $10, or 12 for $108.

Read on for more.

River North 2016 Whiskey Barrel Quandary Releases 7/16

Whiskey Barrel Quandary, River North Brewery’s revered barrel-aged Belgian dark strong ale, was last seen in January 2015. Now, after a full year and a half in the making, the next installment in this remarkable series is ready.

The brewery will debut 2016 Whiskey Barrel Quandary this Saturday, July 16th, at noon in their taproom.

A neoclassic Abbey-style Quadrupel aged in a blend of whiskey barrels, Whiskey Barrel Quandary delivers on all the traditional dark fruit notes inherent in a rich, malty quadrupel. A year-plus rest in whiskey barrels only deepens the complexity, lending a lingering oak and warming finish.  Last year’s vintage of Whiskey Barrel Quandary earned a 98/100 rating in DRAFT Magazine, and the series collectively boasts a 97 rating on RateBeer.

For Saturday’s release, River North will offer Whiskey Barrel Quandary both on tap and in 375ml bottles to go. Fans can score single bottles for $10, or a full case of twelve for $108 to add to the beer cellar. More bottles will hit store shelves at select bottle shops and premier retailers throughout Colorado following the release.

A beer to truly savor, Whiskey Barrel Quandary can be enjoyed fresh or cellared for years to come, but once this year’s version is gone, this beer will not reappear until 2017.

Dry Dock Brewing Adds Double Apricot Blonde To Signature Series

Earlier today, Dry Dock Brewing launched the first beer in their 2016 Signature Series. Double Apricot Blonde is a new addition to the lineup this year and spent 5 months in Colorado Whiskey Barrels. It’s available both on draft and in 22oz. bombers at Dry Dock North and will debut at Dry Dock South on Friday, July 15th.

Read on for more.

 

 

Dry Dock Brewing Company Debuts Double Apricot Blonde

AURORA, CO— Dry Dock Brewing Company will release Double Apricot Blonde on draft and in 22 ounce bombers today, Wednesday July 12, at North Dock at 2pm. This bourbon barrel-aged version of the brewery’s flagship Apricot Blonde is the first of the 2016 Signature Series, a collection of small-batch, barrel-aged imperial and double beers that concludes with Bligh’s Barleywine each year. 

Aged with apricot puree for five months in Colorado whiskey barrels, Double Apricot Blonde seamlessly melds fruit and bourbon flavors, creating notes of caramel and burnt sugar. This beer is surprisingly delicate in body, slightly tannic, and rounded out by dry oak and sweet sherry nuances. 

“Double Apricot Blonde is a perfect marriage of whiskey and fruit that is reminiscent of your favorite mason jar beverage,” says North Dock Head Brewer Alan Simons. “This beer seemed like a natural addition to our Signature Series because of the popularity of our flagship.” 

Double Apricot Blonde will be available on draft and in 22-ounce bombers at North Dock today at 2pm and at South Dock on Friday, July 15 at 12pm. Bombers are available for purchase at liquor stores across the state.

  • Joseph James 9th Anniversary Strong Ale, straight from Scott’s (not me) mouth (the news about the beer, not the beer itself).
  • When I was in San Francisco 2 weeks ago, I spied The Bruery Share This: Coffee and the anniversary beer, Poterie, sitting on the shelves. It should hit Colorado soon, no? (UPDATE: They are here)
  • Hoppin’ Frog BORIS The Crusher Reserve. That’s right…Reserve. Also, some other Hoppin’ drops.
  • La Cumbre Project Dank (super fresh yo!) & Fievre d’ Abricot.

    • Do you know about CLTCB? No? It stands for “Colorado Let’s Talk Craft Beer”. It’s a Facebook page with thousands of people talking beer all day long. It’s pretty cool…but what’s even cooler is the collaboration beer Mockery did with CLTCB;  Double Scotch on the Rockies releases…oh wait, you should probably be a member to get in on the details. Sorry! (jk, this Sat at 11:30)
    • River North brings back their highly acclaimed Whiskey Barrel Quandary on Saturday at noon. MmmmmmmYYyyesss!
    • If you aren’t a TRVE Cvlt member, move on. You are not worthy. For the rest of us, MMXV-III releases to the members on Saturday. See you there. Call me?

We lost a good one this week. Paul Ogg, beer advocate, father, professor, husband and much more, has sadly lost his battle against cancer. Some of you may have been lucky enough to share a beer with Paul over the years, while others might remember him from the recent nationwide collaboration brew. I’m not even sure what to say, it’s just tragic. Paul was a kind, humble and all around great guy. Please take a moment and raise a glass to him and his family this weekend.
