Leaves fall, seasons change and our team is spending their fall evenings digging into some tasty brews. Kindle a fire, throw on a blanket and get ready to see What We’re Drinking.

Creature Comforts Brewing Co. | Athena Paradiso

February 22, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

ABV: 4.5%

I hadn’t done much research on what to expect before I tried Creature Comforts Brewing Company’s  Athena Paradiso, so color me surprised when I poured it out and it was a deep red color. (Color me surprised – get it? Haha. Seriously guys. Funny stuff). Paradiso is a fruit treated version of Athena, Creature Comforts year-round Berliner weisse, brewed with tart cherries, raspberries and cranberries. I don’t know if it’s just because of the proximity to the day, but this beer definitely tasted just like Valentine’s Day – a little sweet and a little sour. I guess it’s something to try when you’re not quite sure what you’re in the mood for. Read More

Cooking with Beer | Passionate Risotto

October 30, 2014 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

I haven’t cooked with beer in a while which is why all of my built up creativity exploded into this one recipe. Luckily, I didn’t spend my night slaving away in the kitchen for nothing – this meal turned out to be delightful. The Passionfruit Sour Ale by Breakside Brewing imparted a tangy flavor into the grains that integrated beautifully with the apples and goat cheese. The addition of blackberries and green onions took this dish to the next level. If you didn’t pick up on it from the name, this ‘Passionate Risotto’ is anything but boring.

Grist Brewing Co | Berliner Weisse

ABV: 5.4% | IBU: 13 | SRM: 6

As we are hitting record highs here in Denver, we know that summer is leaving us. We know it. But we can’t just say goodbye to its beers just yet! So, as leaves are falling on the ground and as Misun’s Goodbye Summer plays on my iPhone, I snag an old summer style favorite of mine, the Berliner Weisse. The brew is new to me and is from the Denver suburb of Highland’s Ranch; the brewery is Grist Brewing Company.
