Bear Republic Racer 5 IPA 

India Pale Ale (IPA) · 7.5 ABV · Brewed by Bear Republic Brewing Company

 

This hoppy American IPA is a full bodied beer brewed with American pale and crystal malts, and heavily hopped with Chinook, Cascade, Columbus and Centennial. There’s a trophy in every glass.

Blue Moon Mountain Abbey Ale 

Amber Ale / Red Ale · 5.6 ABV · Brewed by Blue Moon Brewing Company

 

It’s no secret that it gets pretty cold here in Colorado. So early on in the brewery’s history, our brewmasters wanted to create a beer that would do the trick on a snowy winter day. Today, we craft our winter wonder with roasted malts and dark. Belgian candi sugar for rich caramel and toffee notes. It’s perfect on those winter days when you’re stuck inside.

Blue Point Mosaic Session IPA 

India Pale Ale (IPA) · 4.8 ABV · Brewed by Blue Point Brewing Company

 

Our Mosaic Session IPA is a light, straw-colored, West Coast version that showcases serious aroma. It features Mosaic, Simcoe, and Centennial hops that lend strong tropical fruit characteristics to a light body and dry finish. You won’t be able to drink just one – and with less than 5% ABV, you don’t have to.

Heavy Seas Gold Ale 

Golden Ale/Blond Ale · 4.5 ABV · Brewed by Clipper City Brewing Company

 

Deep gold in color with floral and spicy hop aromas. Brewed with pale, carmel, and Munich malts balanced with Cascade, Centennial and Hersbrucker hops. Well rounded, fruity and complex. Pairs well with salads, mild cheeses and pulled pork BBQ

Ithaca Daydreamer 

Kolsch · 7.0 ABV · Brewed by Ithaca Beer Company

 

Originating from Cologne (Köln), Germany, the Kölsch style is historically only brewed along the Rhine (Rhein) River. The style is so regional that Germans in other parts of the country may not even be able to get it. We brought the style here and added our own little bit of personality by making the traditionally 4.5% alcohol beer closer to 7%. This full flavored dreamy Kölsch will stand out from the rest with its strong pineapple-like aroma and complex fruity flavor.

Sierra Nevada Narwhal Imperial Stout 

Imperial Stout · 10.2 ABV · Brewed by Sierra Nevada Brewing Company

 

A malt-forward monster, highlighting the depths of malt flavor.

 

Narwhal Imperial Stout is inspired by the mysterious creature that thrives in deepest fathoms of the frigid Arctic Ocean. Featuring incredible depth of malt flavor, rich with notes of espresso, baker’s cocoa, roasted grain and a light hint of smoke, Narwhal is a massive malt-forward monster. Aggressive but refined with a velvety smooth body and decadent finish, Narwhal will age in the bottle for years to come.
