Welcome to this week’s Denver Beer Beat. What a week huh?! Hopefully all of you cerevisaphiles out there got your fix with Pliny the Younger popping up all over town. How lucky are we to have so many chances to try that coveted brew?! How about Avery Strong Ale Fest? So much good came out of that event that I must digress on to March. March is a month of transition. Lots of breweries are rolling out all of the big stuff from winter so they can to keep us toasty and warm while also trying to provide ample amounts of spring-esque suds for those gorgeous patio days. So whether you are trying to hit those last days of stout or gearing up for an afternoon porch session, please follow along as we showcase the not-to-miss events in this week’s Weekly Denver Beer Beat.
The last six months have seen an influx of new Midwestern and Colorado beers into Florida, and I, for one, am pretty darn excited about that. Founders and New Belgium are the two biggest new names in the state, but we are also starting to see some smaller breweries, such as Two Brothers. The Sidekick is the first beer I’ve tried from them.
We are pretty much locked-in to the winter doldrums at this point, so hopefully some new music will put a little pep in your step. Luckily, February was a big month for new music. Without further ado, here are some …
Heyyoo, Heyyooo, Heyyooooo (to the tune of Blackstreet’s “No Diggity”)! I hope you guys are doing well! Since we are less than a week away from St. Patty’s Day, let’s get to this week’s findings. Is St. Patty’s Day relevant …
I was recently asked someone in passing what their favorite citrus fruit was. Is that an odd question? I guess that’s the kind of question you ask and can expect an honest-to-god answer. Why would anyone taradiddle on tangerines? I think you can tell a lot about a person by their taste in citrus fruit – I’d venture that a majority of replies will be “ummm, oranges?”. That’s fine, oranges are good, but in all honesty, they’re the Bud Light of the citrus world. I don’t have anything against oranges or the good people who grow them (I have a glass of OJ every morning when I wake up) but this answer is all too milquetoast. There are so many varieties of citrus fruit; it’s damn hard to get anything but excited about them. The lowly citron, the mandarin orange, the lemon, the Kumquat!, the possibilities are endless.
So are we drinking cheap beer again or not? While American sales might be down, distributors are backing off of the craft beer craze and pushing “cheap beer” ad campaigns further. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. But it’s okay, because we still have Sam Calagione to show us how we’ve been drinking our beers wrong all along anyway.
As spring approaches and Colorado’s notoriously schizophrenic weather becomes even more erratic, I find myself having an increasingly hard time deciding between a soothing, satisfying stout or a creature with sharper, hop-stained teeth. In these moments of seasonal indecision, my favor often falls on Black IPAs, especially ones crafted by West Coast breweries.
