Big Beers Moving to Breckenridge
Chris Day

As the 2017 Big Beers, Belgians, and Barleywines festival approaches, I always have one question: what will be poured at the commercial tasting session?

While the festival promoters kindly posted this useful tasting program, we also reached out to brewers to collect beers from them directly. We’ll keep updating this list through the week as submissions arrive. Check back and you may find some late changes or last minute additions! Thanks again to all the breweries who helped us compile this list.

Bruz BeersAtlas QuadrupelBruz Atlas Quadrupel is a big, dark, malty and complex ale in the Trappist tradition.

Five malts, dark brewing sugars and Trappist ale yeast create a big full-bodied brew with notes of stone fruits, raisins, dates and a touch of chocolate. Rich sweetness gives way to a dry finish that lingers on the palate.

Bruz BeersDubbel TrubbelTrubbel is a rich, malty, mahogany colored, monastery style ale thatÕs big on flavor and finesse. A complex malt bill - including pilsner, Munich, aromatic, caramel and Special B malts Ð is enhanced by the addition of Belgian dark candi syrup.

APPEARANCE: Reddish mahogany color with garnet highlights

ABV: 8.0%

IBUs: 20


FOOD PAIRINGS: TrubbelÕs malty sweetness makes it a natural with just about any form of chocolate. Or, try it with a goat Chevre or a Belgian monastery cheese like Chimay. Also good with savory meats and stews.
Bruz BeersJagged Twilight QuadrupelWe will be bringing a limited number of bottles of this special quad:

Jagged Twilight was inspired by Twilight Peak, the highest summit in the jagged West Needle mountains in Western Colorado.

Belgian strong ale yeast rounds out this malty, full-bodied brew.

APPEARANCE: Black and opaque

ABV: 7.2%

IBUs: 37


FOOD PAIRING: Grilled and roasted meats, hearty soups and stews, aged cheeses
Bruz BeersTalus TripelTalus is a Belgian-style Tripel Ð a strong blond ale originally made by Trappist monks. It is the epitome of the "iron first in the velvet glove."

Despite its considerable strength, Talus is a very drinkable beer that always leaves you wanting more.

Golden City BreweryI'm Lenny! MMMperial StoutIf our head brewer loves anything, it's craft alcohol and the Simpsons, so when he was given the opportunity to age his MMMperial Stout in a Deerhammer Distilling (owner and head distilled Lenny Eckstein) Downtime Whiskey barrel, the name came naturally. Vanilla and cinnamon dominate with a smooth, mocha finish. You will wish you were Carl.
Golden City BreweryMMMperial StoutNamed for our headbrewer's best friends' daughter, Mini Mira Morjig, this beer is everything a little baby has to offer: a little sweet, a little bitter, and a whole lotta sass.

craft and ingenuity. Aged in red wine barrels, this robust offering is as sophisticated as it is sour.

sheÕs a charmer Ð one sip and youÕll be in love. ABV: 8.3%
Great DivideRed Wine Barrel Aged Yeti Imperial Stout (2015)Rather than aging our beloved Imperial Stout in whiskey barrels, we chose to take a very small

new experience with this barrel aged beast. ABV: 11%

La Cumbre Brewing CompanyAlbus Quercusa lot to ponder and a beer to ponder over. Albus Quercus, or white oak, is our ode to the city that has raised us to brewing glory. A Belgian-inspired farmhouse ale that spent 3 months in Chardonnay barrels before being bottle conditioned. Vibrant melon, grape, pineapple and a cornucopia of spice aromatics meld together and reveal a dry, minerally, effervescent body. The finish is long and equally dry with a balanced bitterness from the finest European hops.
La Cumbre Brewing CompanyFievre dÕAbricot2.000 lbs. of apricots were added to a ridiculously dry and spicy saison to create this truly divine fruit-centered offering.
La Cumbre Brewing CompanyLa Negra2016Õs La Negra is our Bourbon barrel-aged Russian Imperial Stout, brewed with our British Pale malt, and an enormous amount of roasted malts. As in the past, we collected a copious amount of sticky wort, and then further fortified it with a very long boil. The resulting beer has a big bourbon and raisin nose, an enormously rich body and a bittersweet cocoa finish

Brettanomyces imparted notes of candied orange and leather(?) overlay restrained holiday spices, dark cherry caramel character and whiskey spiced oak, are all punctuated by a mild tartness and hint of chocolate on the finish. Warming and dynamic, our take on a wild Christmas. "
Upslope Brewing CompanyYirgacheffe Coffee DubbelDone as a collaboration between Upslope Brewing and our Lee Hill neighbors Dragonfly Coffee Roasters, this unique beer combines the bubblegum esters of Belgian yeast with the roasty blueberry flavors and aromas of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee. The two come together to create a sweet aroma somewhere between cotton candy and plums, balanced against a subtle coffee earthiness. The flavor is a perfect balance between the semi-sweet flavors of the dubbel and the smooth bitterness from the coffee. This beer is sure to please, and change any preconception you may have of what a ""coffee beer"" is supposed to be."

Urban Chestnut Brewing CompanyCherry ThralesPeter the Great loved English Stouts and requested them for the Russian Imperial courts. Unfortunately, the beer could not survive the long journey until 1796 when London brewery, ThraleÕs, increased the alcohol content and hopping rate in their stout creating the Imperial Stout. As a nod to Peter and ThraleÕs, weÕve ÒimperializedÓ this Stout by fermenting it a bit further with sour cherries.

Weldwerks Brewing Co.Barrel Aged Mexican Achromatic13.2% ABV Barrel Aged Mexican Achromatic is an Imperial Stout inspired by Mexican hot cocoa, a drink that traces its roots back to the Mayans, Aztecs and Spanish in Mexico. Brewed with obscene amounts of roasted cacao nibs, cinnamon sticks, and vanilla beans and aged in Breckenridge Distillery bourbon barrels, Barrel Aged Mexican Achromatic is a rich, decadent beer that evokes the innovative spirit of brewing while paying homage to its Mexican heritage.
Weldwerks Brewing Co.Coffee Coconut Stout8.0% ABV Coffee Coconut Stout, as you may have guessed, features loads of toasted coconut and freshly roasted Peruvian coffee from our friends at ZoeÕs Cafe here in Downtown Greeley. The sweet, creaminess of the toasted coconut offers a perfect complement to the complex character contributed the Mama NellyÕs coffee, a blend of four different roasts of the same direct-trade Peruvian beans. These delicious, unique flavors are supported by a full-bodied, yet balanced base stout brewed with both lactose and flaked oats for mouthfeel and a variety of chocolate malts, crystal malts, and roasted barley.
Weldwerks Brewing Co.Double Dry Hopped Juicy Bits7.0% ABV We took Juicy Bits (our popular New England-style IPA featuring a huge citrus and tropical fruit hop character with a softer, smoother mouthfeel from the adjusted water chemistry, higher protein malts, and lower attenuation) and dry hopped it with more than double the amount of Citra, Mosaic and El Dorado hops, bringing the total hop rate up to more than 6 lbs per barrel, the most we have ever used in a single IPA.
Weldwerks Brewing Co.Mexican Achromatic10.2% ABV We created Mexican Achromatic by infusing our rich Achromatic base stout with generous additions of cacao nibs, cinnamon sticks and vanilla beans to create a beer reminiscent of Mexican hot cocoa. The spiciness of the cinnamon sticks are a wonderful contrast with the rich, dark chocolate notes from the cacao nibs and the vanilla beans top it all off with a creamy, decadent sweetness.
Weldwerks Brewing Co.Mocha Achromatic9.5% ABV Mocha Achromatic is another iteration in our Achromatic series, which starts as an Imperial Stout brewed with an obscene amount of chocolate malts, oatmeal, and crystal malts to lend a sweet, robust malt backbone as a canvas for the adjuncts. We boil for more than 6 hours to achieve the unbelievably rich, chewy, thick mouthfeel of the base beer and ferment with a clean, attenuative yeast strain to keep the focus on the malts and adjuncts. For the Mocha iteration, we infused the beer with generous additions of both cacao and freshly roasted Mama NellyÕs blend coffee from our friends at ZoeÕs Cafe, which features four different roasts of the same single origin Peruvian beans. The roast character from both the coffee and cacao complement the sweetness of the base beer.
Weldwerks Brewing Co.Nutella Achromatic10.5% ABV The newest release in our Achromatic series, Nutella Achromatic is brewed with hazlenuts, cacao nibs and cocoa powder.
Weldwerks Brewing Co.Peach Climacteric7.2% ABV The first official release from our mixed-fermentation barrel-aged sour program, Peach Climacteric starts as a blend of pale sours, all aged in barrels, ranging in age from 4-17 months and fermented with various strains of wild yeast and bacteria. The final blend was then aged on over 1,500 lbs of Palisade peaches, yielding one of the most ambitious and complex beers we have produced so far.
Weldwerks Brewing Co.Peanut Butter Cup Achromatic10.5% ABV For PBCA, we take the decadence of our base Achromatic stout a step further with a huge addition of peanut flour (note of caution for anyone with peanut allergies) and cacao nibs.
Weldwerks Brewing Co.Peppermint Mocha Achromatic9.5% ABV A special holiday seasonal variation of our Mocha Achromatic infused with peppermint.
