That momentous day has arrived: The one you have been impatiently waiting for since you saw those two solid lines on the Clearblue and comprehended the weight of their meaning. You are now a new parent–congratulations! As a new parent, you will need beer to help cope with the stresses of everything caring for an infant entails. Do not use beer as a crutch–that’s not healthy. Rather, escape with the occasional, enjoyable can of suds to put yourself in a happy place, a temporary headspace not completely dominated by every whim of your beautiful, screaming child. Here is a guide to beers for a new parent.
Occasionally there comes along a complex brew that simultaneously highlights all its components while cohesively combining them in a masterful amalgamation. Cerebral Brewing Mysterious Forces Blend 02 is just such a beer.
Wet hop season is a magical time of year when freshly harvested hops elevate beers to delectable levels incapable of being reached during growing months. While most wet hop beers are different versions of IPAs, Cohesion Brewing is taking an innovative approach with Cohesion 10° Wet Hop by applying the resinous fresh cones to their Czech Pale Lager, blending a traditional old world style with new age hopping techniques and creating a wholly unique experience in the process.
Project Alpha is an ever changing series of experimental IPAs made by the creative minds at Cannonball Creek Brewing in Golden, CO. Says Brian Hutchison, co-owner and head brewer, it’s “Fun to be able to do whatever you want to try, to take risks. That’s what (Alpha) is all about.”
“Bringing people together over beer” is the main goal of Cohesion Brewing according to its co-owner and brewmaster, Eric Larkin. This new brewery opening soon in the Clayton neighborhood of Denver will welcome neighbors and visitors alike to gather at the newly renovated taproom and drink Czech-style Lagers, a brewery concept unlike any Denver or the entire U.S. have seen before.
What is a beer if nothing more than a vessel to take your mind away from life’s troubles even if only for one pivotal, refreshing moment? Bierstadt Lagerhaus’ Slow Pour Pils affirms this notion of blissful escapism with an execution so perfect that you hardly need to think about the beer itself.
