Six MORE Colorado Beers to Ring in the New Year from Molly’s Spirits
While the collective humankind would likely agree that 2022 can’t arrive soon enough, we’d be remiss if we didn’t blow the doors off of 2021 with one final calamitous she-bang. As we reflect on this past year’s highs and lows, we can all cheers toward looking forward to better circumstances and hope.
To commemorate this weekend’s New Year’s celebrations, we turned to our friends at Molly’s Spirits located at 5809 W 44th Ave, Denver, CO 80212 (Lakeside), and 8557 E Arapahoe Rd Unit A (Greenwood Village, CO), to select six beers to help select six beers to appropriately raise a glass with to close out this shit show of a year.
Hazer Tag | Odell Brewing
With multiple ancillary experimental brew systems scattered across the Front Range, Odell Brewing has been cranking out some impressive experimental beers. Hazer Tag, one of the newer entries to grace their more widely distributed lineup is the perfect way to ring in the New Year with some new beer, and this Hazy IPA proves that even trailblazers like Odell can still stay relevant with trendier styles.
Auld Lang Syne | Burns Family Artisan Ales
Whether you’re in need of an extra layer of warmth to help acclimate now that cooler days have finally prevailed, or you’re just in need of a little extra punch of booziness to wash down another pandemic year, New Years celebrations wouldn’t be complete without a beautiful Brandy Barrel-Aged Barleywine. And leave it to Wayne Burns and Laura Worley of Burns Family Artisan ales to produce the perfect high octane beer to help you close out the year.
Signal de Botrange | Elevation Beer Co.
While New Years is historically synonymous with drinking down bubbly as you count down to midnight. Beer drinkers can rejoice with beers that drink more like a hybrid of the two. Signal de Botrange a bright bubbly Saison aged in Chardonnay barrels is the perfect example of that wine/beer crossover.
Brewers Blend | Finkel & Garf Brewing
It wouldn’t be a proper end of year blowout without a big boozy barrel-aged Stout. This year, the folks at Finkel and Garf have composed a beautiful blend of three of their Stouts to form Brewers Blend, featuring their Barrel Aged Imperial Milk Stout, their Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout, and an Imperial Milk Stout, which come together to form a truly incredible silky, roasty, barrel-aged gem!
The Real Dill Michelada | Four Noses Brewing
To help you nurse your post-celebration hangover, we turn to Four Noses Brewing’s collaboration with The Real Dill, Denver’s best pickle purveyors. For those who enjoy Bloody Marys and Micheladas to help tie another one on, this is the perfect remedy to help kick-start January 1!
Accumulation | New Belgium Brewing
Now a winter classic from one of the pioneers of beer Accumulation was ahead of its time and still endures as an unlikely winter seasonal. This soft pillowy White IPA is the perfect way to beckon for much needed snow across the Front Range. This year’s can even has a snow measuring meter on the side so you can show off when we do finally get that first downpour.
Real Dry | Stem Ciders (Bonus)
Speaking of champagne like hybrids. As a bonus, we’ve included Stem Ciders’ flagship cider, Real Dry. Not only is it dry and bubbly like a champagne, but it also features zero grams of sugar, which means you can get your January started off with less guilt while also still technically adhering to “Dry January”.
