Odd13 Brewing is from old town Lafayette, Colorado. They focus on hoppy American, Belgian and experimental styles. Every beer that Odd13 creates falls into a group of other beers they produce, like The Odd Squad, The Legion of Odd, The Sidekicks, etc… A new group called Bi-Monthlies are starting to show up at local beer stores throughout Colorado. This Bi-Monthly group is made up of sour beers released in cans every two months. Each beer is specifically crafted to suit the season in which it is released. This month <3 Machine was released.

Since their introduction in 2012, Paradox Beer Company has been constantly enhancing their craft and releasing ‘banging’ beers to the state of Colorado.
Based out of Woodland Park, “The City Above the Clouds,” Paradox’s mission is to produce ancient beers with modern brewing processes. Already up to batch 17, their Skully Barrel Project is their sour barrel aged series. Each batch is a small release with only around 80 cases.

The hidden craft market has been brewing in Vermont for years. This humble state is always in the top craft lists but never seems to get the media hype it deserves. By the sounds of it, that’s what they want. Many of these brewers don’t distribute outside state lines, let alone outside of their county or town. So unless you travel up through the green mountains yourself, you will need to wait until the next time a fellow craft head drives cross country to share the wealth from this secluded state.
Last week I found myself in the middle of the craft mile in Vermont for an extended weekend. Overwhelmed with this opportunity, I embraced this rare experience. After some homework and multiple country store stops, I’ve compiled my Vermont Ultimate 6er.
This past July, Perennial Artisan Ales started to celebrate their new Cocktail Series “Dealer’s Choice”. The idea behind this series is to work with bartenders and mixologists at leading bars around the states to create new beers with classic cocktail profiles.
