  • Oak & Orchard Sour Release, Epic Brewing, Denver, CO, Noon

The 5th release of our Oak & Orchard Sour Series hit the taproom at noon this Saturday April 1st. This is the second version of the Oak & Orchard Syrah (Syrah Trois) ~8.5% ABV, 661 cases- This time around we went with a little less funk and a lot more fruit. We loaded one of our Napa Valley foeders with our sour saison and so much blueberry, boysenberry and black currant that it was practically bursting at the seams, resulting in a beer that explodes with huge, fruity, wine-like notes.

Epic Brewing is located at: 3001 Walnut St, Denver, CO.

April 1, 2017 marks one year since Peat Coors and the Coors family bought us out for $1,000,000,001.00 US Dollars. Once the expert tasters at Coors had their first sips of the ‘Khores Ballroom Beer’ here at Call to Arms, they just couldn’t resist the opportunity to invest in the official beer of all of Colorado’s renowned and world-class ballrooms. 

After a year of staring in awe at this magnificent check, we’ve finally decided to put our humility aside and cash it in! We popped over to Golden, and after a few failed attempts to cash the check at two local banks, we walked straight into the Coors factory in search of our bags o’ money – which oddly enough they seem to just keep piled high right in the lobby. 

We thought long and hard about what to do with all of the dough. Do we retire and move to Cleveland? Do we buy Lakeview Lounge? And then we thought to ourselves, “What Would Khores Sexy Man Do?” That was when we realized we must carry on the Khores Ballroom name and make it more glorious than ever!

On April 1st, you will be able to reap the benefits of this massive chunk of change. We have decided to spend the loot on 3-PACK CROWLERS OF KHORES and BRAND NEW KHORES TEE SHIRTS!! We’ll only have 150 3-packs and 50 tee shirt/3-pack bundle packs available, priced at $15 and $30 respectively – so get ’em while they’re hot…er, ice cold like the Rocky Mountains.

We’ll have LIVE music from the Khores Sexy Band from 2-3pm, and they’ll be performing their newly-released single, Khores Sexy Song.

And to top it off, Khores Sexy Man will be available for photo opportunities and endless sexiness. We’ll see you on Saturday, April 1st for all the Khores Ballroom Beer you can get your hands on!

Call to Arms is located at: Tennyson St, Denver, CO.
