Event Preview | Save the Ales Beer Festival

August 8, 2018 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

In a landlocked state like Colorado, the late summer arrives with mounting temperatures and sporadic afternoon thunderstorms. Even in this land of indecisive weather, we’ve been noticing drier, hotter conditions more than ever before—which places more stress on our natural resources, like water. Climate change, it seems, is getting ready to claim another victim: our beer!

Conservation Colorado’s Save the Ales Beer Festival on August 9 aims to quash this nightmare before it morphs into reality. Both reliant on water, the environmental sector and beer industry embrace the overlap between conservation and craft beer at the nonprofit’s annual beer festival. With 40+ craft breweries and Colorado-grown companies expected, Save the Ales combines the power of Colorado’s booming craft beer industry with our citizen’s passion for our water, public lands, and natural resources.

Colorado’s craft beer scene embraces many different philanthropies, including the conservation community. It’s not surprising as they have many things in common. After all, the environmental sector and beer industry are both dependent on water, a vital—and increasingly scarce—resource in the drought-stricken west.

Though the calendar reads that it’s only mid-July, much of the country has steadily reached temperatures of 90 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit for the past few weeks. When it’s this hot outside, it’s natural to yearn for something cold, crisp and refreshing to quench your thirst. New Belgium’s Mural Agua Fresca, a collaboration with Mexico City’s Cervecería Primus, is not only a unique entry for summer beer seasonals, but it also checks all the boxes for the perfect beer to beat the heat.

Firestone Walker | Mocha Merlin: Who Says Winter Has to End?

May 10, 2018 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

Firestone Walker Brewing Company, California’s Central Coast brewing behemoth, has become a frequent visitor to the Colorado craft beer scene. With hazy memories of tasters at past beer festivals, I eyed a can of Mocha Merlin with hesitant hope.

Sure, the hearty coffee-infused stout is a beer intended for the cold season — a great beer to warm you up as you sip from your chalice in the (Game of Thrones’) Winterfell Great Hall — but why must winter ever end? Recent posts on various “beer check-in” websites show that the beer continues to be enjoyed, even as the weather turns more summer-like each day.
