About the Brews

Echo Brewing Company Collaboration: Eisbock A traditional German specialty beer style that originated accidentally at a brewery in Kulmbach. This is a malty lager with a rich, sweet flavor created by freezing a portion of the Doppelbock, removing the ice, and leaving a concentrated full-bodied beer. Eisbock is an extraordinary style that is perfect to make with the help of the snowy foothills of the Rocky Mountains. This brew is a high-octane treat and has a heavy, syrupy body with notes of dark fruit, raisins, plums and toffee. 13% ABV – Brewed with Dennis and Daniel Richards

Crystal Springs Brewing Company Collaboration: Wee Heavy Scotch Ale- This strong scotch style ale is rich in flavor with roasty, nutty, and golden honey notes. The beer has very low esters and hops, a moderately dark copper color, and a sweet and dry finish. It is slightly smoky, well balanced, and medium bodied. 10.3% – Brewed with Tom Horst

Asher Brewing Company: 100% Organic Cocoa Punk’n Porter- Pumpkins and cacao nibs are rich and nectarous and the body of the beer is full and dark. The pumpkins give a slight roasty quality as they were cooked on the wood fired ovens at our neighbors Pizzeria Basta. This beer is multifaceted and palatable with sweet, roasty, bitter dark chocolate and pumpkin flavor. 6% – Brewed with Chris Asher

Wild Woods Brewing Company: Eastside Extra Pale Ale- Refreshing pale ale with stimulating hop character and crisp finish. Fresh orange zest added during boil to enhance the citrus notes. 7% – Brewed with Jake Evans

Shine Restaurant and Gathering Place: Let Your FATE Shine Imperial IPA– Loaded with a very generous amount of delicious Amarillo, Eldorado, Columbus and Centennial hops, this imperial india pale ale features a tangerine-like hop profile supported by a well-balanced malt backbone. It is sure to be a hop lover’s new favorite. 10%, 100+IBU             – Brewed with Mike Kasian

Boulder Beer: English Brown Mild- This British session beer has mild hop character and a subtle toasty malt presence. 5% – Brewed with Chris Coyne

Twisted Pine Brewing Company: Twist of FATE Rye Brown Ale- Malty and spicy rye aroma and flavor with undertones of toast, nuts, and roast. 7% – Brewed with Reva Golden 

Mountain Sun/Southern Sun Pub and Brewery: Cherry FATE: Chocolate Cherry Foreign Stout- This decadent beer was originally released on Valentine’s Day. It has a creamy cocoa mouth feel and two kinds of cherries contributing a sweet and tart finish. 6% – Brewed with Anthony Laurig

Big Choice Brewing Company: Biere de Garde– Literal translation is “beer for keeping.” This deep copper colored ale is characterized by a toasted malt aroma, slight malt sweetness in flavor and mild hop bitterness. 7% – Brewed with Zach

Lone Tree Brewing Company: Schwarzbier- This German dark lager has an opaque, black color and full, chocolate and subtle coffee flavor. The hops allow for a bright finish. 5% – Brewed with Jason Wiedmaier

Bru Handbuilt Ales and Eats: Trippel- Opens with a bold blast of hops that slowly gives way to the fruity esters implied by the Belgian yeast strain. Brewed with lemongrass 9%      – Brewed with Ian Clark

Twelve Degree Brewing: Hommelbier- This Belgian IPA style beer is the most recent collaboration. While it will not be ready in time for the collaboration release party, we still wanted to give you a teaser. – Brewed with John Howland
