Weekend Beer Buzz 06/08/2017

a night to remember

 

 

 

 

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

We’re turning 20 this June and are celebrating in the best possible way: Great Food, Great Friends, and GREAT BEER!! If you were here for our 10th Anniversary you’ll recognize the idea: Chris has been busy brewing beers with some of our favorite breweries and old friends to customize the special tappings. We’re going ten days straight again, with several days tapping both a beer brewed in Colorado and one from elsewhere in the US.

We’re kicking the festivities off with a Dual Tapping on Friday, June 2 at 5:30pm: reprising their role from TEN years ago, Dry Dock Brewing will be sailing in with Chris’ homage to Mr. Hoppy, the beer he planned on tapping to kick off the 10th Anniversary. We are also thrilled to welcome our friends from San Diego as we tap into the Alpine/Green Flash/Cellar 3 brew – We Were Here First! This was the first of the anniversary beers Chris brewed, a big, amazing and truly unique collaboration.

Throughout the remaining nine days we will also be tapping into beers brewed with:

Epic
Ecliptic
Upslope
Sierra Nevada
Great Divide
Comrade
Odell
Spangalang
New Belgium
Crooked Stave
And more to be announced!!!

Our last day of the celebration, Sunday June 11th, will feature a very special tapping of an extremely limited beer Chris brewed at Bristol Brewing in Colorado Springs.

All Weekday Brews will tap at 5:30pm, with Weekend Brews tapping at 2pm. As the beers arrive in town/at the bar and travel plans are confirmed we will finalize the schedule of events and announce which Brewery will be tapped on which day. Of course Twitter and Facebook will have continual updates as well, but we will update events here on the website each day as well.

One of the absolute best things about this celebration is spending time with the PEOPLE! Brewers, Owners, Brewery Representatives, fellow Publicans, Regulars who are a massive reason we are here, friends from around the country and around the World are coming in to celebrate with us. We can’t thank you enough for all of the love and support you have provided over the last two decades. We can’t wait to see you, raise a pint and share some stories!!

In 1966, with Cold War tensions simmering between the United States and USSR, a GAMBIT 1 (KH-7) spy satellite acquired this image of the town. -NASA

GAMBIT was named to support The Brewtography Project‘s successful Kickstarter last year. We loved the beer so much that we decided to re-brew it and re-launch it.

The base is almost Flanders-red style, but without acetic acid, and with a moderate amount of ruby red grapefruit zest added. The result is incredible. The flavors are complex, the acidity of the beer balances well with the grapefruit flavors, and the aroma is positively candy-like with the base of this beer giving it a bit more complexity, due to the darker malts and higher gravity.

Black Project is located at: 1290 S Broadway, Denver, CO.

Every Friday at South Dock we tap a one-of-a-kind firkin. This week we’re serving a delicious Latte Stout! Limited availability, so get it while you can.

The release party starts at 5 PM so mark your calendars and make sure to stop in and grab a few 4-packs fresh off the canning line!

The day is nearly here when our new IPA is hitting the tap! We’re really excited about this Super Soaked IPA release and can’t wait for you all to try it out. Generous Lemondrop and Mandarina hops give this one a citrus punch and it’s the perfect addition to your Summer. Come grab a pint with your crew and enjoy our patio with Beef King (Chicago style Italian Beef & more) posted up on the lot. See you there!

We truly can’t believe it’s been a year, but now it’s time to come together, drink some beer, and celebrate the passage of time with us.

We’ll be tapping 3 new previously unreleased beers and maybe a surprise or two. Our brewer, Chris Kirk, has been patient while trying out some experimental magic with barrels. Now it’s time to taste what he’s been cooking up!

Atomga, the band that we’ve named our Imperial Stout after, will be playing our anniversary party. If you’re not familiar with them they really put on a show. Did we mention Atomga is a 12 piece band?

To top if off, Areyto will be serving up some Puerto Rican goodness. Areyto means “community gathering” in the Taino Indian language. They are Denver’s first authentic Puerto Rican food truck! Get it while it’s hot, friends.

Banded Oak Brewing is located at: 470 Broadway, Denver, CO.

Warmer days are upon us, which means it’s time to cool down with our summer seasonal, New Wave. New Wave is a kettle soured, Strawberry Berliner Weisse brewed with patio sessions in mind. This bright pink Berliner Weisse is light, tart, effervescent, and clean on the finish. Strawberries are the dominant flavor profile, as each batch is fermented on over 300 pounds of real strawberries.

Join Ratio Beerworks this Saturday as we re-release New Wave Strawberry Berliner Weisse. More details to come!

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