Pride of Palisade Draft and Bottle Release @ Powder Keg Brewing Company (Niwot)

Time: 2:00 p.m.
101 2nd Ave, Niwot, CO 80544

{Press Release} Niwot, CO, January 27, 2015 — Powder Keg Brewing Company launches their second bottled offering. Pride of Palisade is a farmhouse ­style ale fermented with honey, peaches and Brettanomyces. “I have family ties to Palisade and it’s really special to me to be able to use fresh ­picked, whole Palisade Peaches in this beer,” says Brewmaster Phil Joyce. “My grandmother grew up in Palisade and packed peaches during the summers. I remember the pride she took in being the fastest packer and earning the nickname ‘Peaches’. Palisade Peaches are the best peaches I have ever eaten and every time I bite into one I think of her. This beer is a way of preserving that memory and spirit for me.” The beer pours a golden honey color with abundant peach aromas and flavors. As the beer warms, tartness and subtle white pepper phenolics present themselves. “It really develops with time in the glass and unique flavors and nuances present themselves over time” Phil says. Take your time and enjoy this beer with good company and conversation. Phil is proud to have sourced all the ingredients for this beer from Colorado. Barley and wheat came from the Colorado Malting Company in Alamosa, clover honey from the Colorado Honey Man in Longmont, and 600 pounds of Palisade peaches from Ela Family Farms. Pride of Palisade will be available on draft and in bottles for take­out in the Niwot taproom (located at 101 2nd Ave, Niwot, CO 80544) beginning Friday January 31st.
