Congratulations to Noah Eisenman and Greg Nuccio, who both entered "Snape-ricot" in our "Name the Comic Con Beer" contest for this year's potion, an apricot lager. The name
honors actor Alan Rickman, who played Severus Snape in the Harry Potter film series and recently lost his life to pancreatic cancer.
We had a special guest tour our brewery in Littleton. Cargo is the 4-legged ambassador for Freedom Service Dogs of America (FSD). He dropped by to see that our tours are running smoothly and that they're well-attended. You see, FSD is the non-profit currently benefitting from our Littleton brewery's tour donation program! From January through June this year, we donate $1 of every $3 tour reservation fee to FSD.
We're throwing a free concert at the Bluebird Theater in Denver to celebrate the availability of Nitro Vanilla Porter in 16-oz cans. The release party on May 11th toasts the start of our new nitrogen-charged canned beer series. This free show is open to the public (21+) on a first-come basis with doors opening at 7:00 p.m. until capacity is reached. Each party-goer will be given a complimentary can of Nitro Vanilla Porter to enjoy. The Bright Light Social Hour and Dragondeer are to perform. We hope you will join us!
This Earth Day we celebrate all those working together to conserve precious resources and beautify our planet. Team Breck participated in a trail clean-up this morning with other South Suburban Park Foundation volunteers, picking up trash along the bike and nature trail near our brewery. We're also doing what we can every day at the brewery.
With a nod to England's rich history of beer-making and artistry, Breckenridge Brewery today released a Burton ale in its Small Batch Series. King's Dish derived its name from a well-known line in William Shakespeare's play, The Winter's Tale. Pairing British ingredients with Shakespeare's celebrated quote, “For a quart of ale is a dish for a king,” King's Dish revives an age-old style that predates the India Pale Ale.
Right about the time our brewers got together to create our next Mountain Series beer, the days were beginning to lengthen and occasional warm spells hinted at springtime. Anticipation for warmer days inspired them to brew a crisp Kolsch style ale. Mountain Series Kolsch holds up to the fickle nature of springtime. Light and refreshing, it also has a fullness that satisfies one's hunger for a beer with complexity. Enjoy its pleasant aromas of warm bread with just a hint of pear. This beer can be enjoyed by the fire, with just about any meal, or on your deck while you bask in warm winter sunshine.
