Welcome

 

Our passion is not just held to liquid in a glass, but also to the community around us that makes our so-called “work” possible.  We strive to participate in community events, sponsor local charitable festivals and invest in our economy by purchasing our state of the art, new American made 20 barrel brewhouse.  We want to always be a strong presence in the community that supports our efforts.  

Our vision of craft beer can be summed up in a few words:  Science Balanced With Creativity.  Now we know some of you folks out there will say that our beers are not as creative as some of our craft beer brethren.  The funny thing about making beer is that it is much harder to create a great craft beer within a style than it is to simply add adjuncts and flavors to beers and create the illusion of quality by overwhelming the palate.  That being said, we will always have 5 core beers that are held to strict stylistic and scientific guidelines.  We analyze these beers in our lab to make sure we are within the guidelines and that each batch is consistent.  For the more daring folks out there, we always have 4-7 beers that are a bit outside the box.  From Imperial IPAs made with hops from Colorado to Juniper Berry Belgian Singles to Colorado Wildflower Honey Blonde Ales.  We will always push the limits of what we can brew for you balancing science and creativity.

So, stop by - visit the taproom, soak up some Colorado sun on our patio with your family and friends for an afternoon or evening after a day well lived in our fine craft beer state of mind!

C.A.L.L. Me Later … CALL stands for Craft Apple Light Lager.  And that's exactly what this beer is.  It drinks like a sweet apple cider with a slightly grainy finish and a clean lager aftertaste.  We used organic apple juice concentrate to sweeten our light lager base beer following fermentation.  It's fizzy, fruity and fun.

For the more serious beer geeks out there or those wanting to know more: why don't we just make a true apple cider?  Simple, a Brewer's Notice allows us to only produce beverages in which >50% of the fermentables come from grain.  A true cider has >50% of the fermentables from fruit derived sugars.  To do this, one would need a Vinter's Licence.  So perhaps someday we will get the required licensing but until then, we'll do what we can to serve the fruit beer community.
