The Beer Release Round Up, 7/10/2014
Blake Smith, July 10, 2014
- "To celebrate our deep Colorado roots, we’re paying homage to the gold rush of 1859 with the July 11threlease of our latest Cellar Series beer, Fifty Niner (Odell). This Brett Golden Ale is bottle conditioned with 100 percent Brettanomyces—in fact, we used a wild strain of the yeast grown in our lab—and finished in a stainless fermentor filled with oak staves. The process created an ale that is creamy and robust, with hints of vanilla, almond, graham cracker and subtle fruitiness."
- Speaking of Odell, New Belgium has teamed up with their neighbors to brew a Pale Ale with all locally sourced ingredients. FOCOllaboration is available in both six packs and twelve packs, as well as bombers.
- Keeping with all the collaboration love, New Belgium is set to release their next Lips of Faith (with Perennial Artisan Ales) offering: Salted Belgian Chocolate Stout.
- In a couple weeks, Funky Buddha Brewing will be releasing Barrel-Aged Muy Bonita. Their description sounds delicious: "This Imperial Apple Pie Brown Ale has been agreed in Laird's Apple Brandy barrels for three months with vanilla, cinnamon, and apples added."
- Enjoy By will be available for the first time in the UK!
- Stone Coffee Milk Stout. I have no words, but I'm also a sucker for coffee milk stouts. So there's that.
- Prairie crossed the pond for a little bit of inspiration, Ambassador Ale.
- Meet Detritivore from Jester King. "Detritivore was made by adding the same cherries that were used to make Montmorency vs. Balaton to fresh beer in stainless steel and allowing the combined beer and fruit to referment to dryness. This was the same technique that we originally used to make La Vie en Rose with the raspberries from Atrial Rubicite." This will be available at their tap room, this Friday, the 11th.
