Happy thursday all! we are coming up on a super-busy weekend for the brewery, with multiple beer releases at home-base while also representing colorado at both @mikerphone 's smells like a beer fest in chicago as well as the little fest on the prairie (put on by @prairieales ) out in oklahoma! if you're going to either, please come say hi!⠀

but now...to the releases!⠀

fake item box⠀
opening with notes of ripe apricot, papaya, and red grapefruit, everything starts like you would expect for a weldwerks new england-style hoppy beer. but as you approach the finish, you discover a subtle vanilla sweetness and milkshake-like creaminess that should not work as well as it does with the bright hop character contributed by the lotus, el dorado, amarillo, & simcoe hops. 4.8% abv⠀

$14 per 4-pack, limit 1 case per person.⠀

west coast ipa⠀
our og ipa is back with a huge upgrade! the ipa-formerly-known-as-steambarrel is a west coast-style ipa dripping with notes of pineapple, grapefruit, passion fruit, tangerine, and pine from the more than 5 lbs per barrel of el dorado, simcoe, lemondrop + mandarina bavaria hops. the clean, dry finish keeps the focus squarely on the hops, while the slightly elevated abv helps to balance the hop bitterness. who said you couldn’t teach an old dog new tricks? 7.7% abv⠀

$14 per 4-pack, limit 1 case per person.⠀

winter is over⠀
we tried to not do anything referencing game of thrones. we really did. we failed. thankfully, the result is this imperial sour wheat ale brewed with ginger and lime, made in conjunction with our dear friends at @homesbrewery out of michigan. inspired by the ever-popular, always-delicious moscow mule, and celebrating the fact that winter is over, which means it's time for a cocktail! 8.6% abv⠀

$16 per 4-pack, limit 1 case per person.⠀

all beers release on draft and in cans to-go tomorrow (friday, 4.26) at noon. we will also have freshie-fresh cans of 3.8 miles double ipa!⠀

cheers to the weekend!⠀

One of our absolute favorite parts about this industry is the unwavering spirit of cooperation in creativity. we are lucky enough to have found ourselves in the orbit of some truly incredible folks and we wanted to celebrate that fact by brewing 6 collabs over 7 days surrounding the craft brewer's conference last week. here's what y'all can be looking forward to, both soon and down the road...⠀

wait! before we forget, just a reminder that key lime pie berliner and apricot gose are releasing in cans today at noon! $14 per 4-pack, limit 1 case per person on each. @hopandhoe will be our food truck today with @thetrampabout holding it down tomorrow! ok here we go...**big inhale**...⠀

burns family artisan ales - @burnsalesdenver⠀
old norway // new england: hazy triple ipa (12%!) brewed with lotus, mosaic, & simcoe hops and fermented with kveik yeast. the geniuses at burns really added some significant touches to this brew and we can whole-heartedly say it's the best tipa we've brewed to-date. coming early may, but available now at burns!⠀

homes - @homesbrewery⠀
winter is over: imperial sour wheat ale brewed with ginger and lime. moscow mule beer! coming soon!⠀

jester king - @jesterkingbrewery⠀
mixed culture saison brewed with @blacklandsmalt malts from texas and fermented in 11 hl sangiovese foeders with bugs from jester king. we don't expect this one to be ready until sometime in 2020.⠀

mikerphone - @mikerphonebrewing⠀
auto tune: hazy double india pale ale brewed with nelson sauvin, citra, & lotus hops. mike is one of our favorite ipa producers (and people) in the country, 'nuff said. coming soon!⠀

moksa - @moksabrewing⠀
imperial stout brewed with three mashes and an overnight boil to hit 36 plato starting gravity with all grain (no extracts or other sugars). this one will spend 18-24 months in barrels.⠀

side project - @sideprojectbrew⠀
english-style barleywine brewed with simpsons low colour maris otter malt and british and german crystal/specialty malts, then fermented with english yeast. this is another one that will spend 18+ months in barrels.⠀

whew! that's it folks. have a wonderful weekend, cheers!

Brace yourselves folks, winte.........wait, no, that's not right.⠀

you need not brace thyself for chilly weather, but rather this week's two releases, because while both are returning favorites, neither one - wait for it - is an ipa.⠀


our fruited sours have been flying out of the taproom lately and so we wanted to beef up the selection a little bit. to that end we bring you this week's beers:⠀

🍑 apricot gose 🍑⠀
making it's return for the first time in more than a year, apricot gose starts with a traditional german malt bill consisting of 50% pilsen malt and 50% wheat malt, which we then kettle sour and add a massive amount of apricot to complement the tartness of the base beer. the sea salt and coriander add to the complexity, producing a beer that is tart, dry, salty, fruity and extremely refreshing. ⠀

🍈🥧 key lime pie berliner 🥧🍈⠀
freshly squeezed key limes, vanilla beans, and just a hint of graham c*****r pair perfectly with the tart wheat base beer in our key lime pie berliner. we colored a bit outside the lines to recreate our favorite summer dessert, adding over 250 lbs of key lime puree for the signature citrus character, lactose and vanilla beans for the pie filling, and just a hint of graham c*****r for the crust. tart, creamy, complex, and dangerously drinkable, klpb is the perfect way to kick off the spring.⠀

both beers are available on draft starting today at noon, and will be available in cans to-go starting at noon tomorrow (4.19). $14 per 4-pack, limit 1 case per person on each.⠀ also, we will have the amazing @everyones_table on-site for your culinary delight from 5-8pm tonight!

We apologize for the late announcement, but the craft brewer's conference had us all over the place this week. today we have 3 beers to announce, two returning and one brand new! all are available starting today on draft and in cans to-go!⠀

food trucks
fri: @hopandhoe
sat: @thetrampabout
🍦🍨neapolitan ice cream sour🍨🍦⠀
it's back! the response to this fun soda-shoppe inspired sour ale was so overwhelmingly positive that we decided to bring it back asap. brewed with milk sugar, milk chocolate, strawberry puree and vanilla. 4.7% abv⠀

$14 per 4-pack, limit 1 case per person.⠀

☕️🍁coffee maple achromatic🍁☕️⠀
we technically released this one on monday but wanted to make sure it got a greater feature. chewy and creamy with tons of chocolate malt, huge additions of maple syrup, and enough coffee to balance, coffee maple achromatic is our quintessential breakfast beer. we boil for more than 6 hours to achieve the unbelievably rich, chewy, thick mouthfeel of the base beer. we take the decadence to the next level with multiple maple syrup additions throughout the process, which are a perfect complement to the huge addition of barrel-aged peruvian coffee from our friends at zoe's cafe, which was aged for several weeks in a spent medianoche bourbon barrel before roasting. we are extremely happy with how this batch turned out and we think you will be too! 10.2% abv⠀

$11 per 19.2oz stovepipe can, limit a half-case per person.⠀

🌠cardboard meteorite🌠⠀
8.3% hazy double ipa brewed with mosaic, citra and hbc 344 + hbc 520 experimental hops. continuing our experimentation with new hop varieties, we think this one is really going to block your socks off. notes are as varied as coconut, papaya, lemon zest, watermelon jolly ranchers, grapefruit, passion fruit and vanilla!⠀

$16 per 4-pack, limit 1 case per person!

Oh hey friends! so on top of our super-fun colorado springs news, we also wanted to let ya know that if you weren't able to snag any tickets for rye and rye vanilla medianoche bottles, we are putting some on sale to-go today starting.............now. please just note the following two very important points:⠀

- this is limited only to folks who did not already get tickets during the original release. anyone found trying to circumvent this particular request will be subject to exclusion from future releases.⠀
- there is a limit of 1 bottle per variant per person (total of 2 bottles, if desired).⠀

so come on down! we have ten (10) cases of each beer for sale, so 120 total allotments if everyone gets one bottle of each. hope to see ya soon!⠀

Wow! we interrupt your regularly scheduled new beer release updates to bring you this crazy news. we are honored and humbled to win the award for outstanding craft brewer at tonight’s 2019 colorado manufacturing awards. a huge thanks to @companyweekdotcom for organizing the event, and congratulations to our fellow nominees @odellbrewing and @trvebrewing, two of our absolute favorite breweries, not just in colorado, but in the whole wide world! what a great way to kick off cbc week!

comment 18 star 562 3 weeks ago

🚨 4/12 update: sadly, cherry vanilla milkshake didn't meet our quality standards, so it will no longer be released. we apologize for the inconvenience but quality is too important to us. 🚨

comment 50 star 1,027 3 weeks ago

Beer #2 for this friday's releases is the return of an old favorite, one of our first canned beers ever!⠀

☕️🥥 coffee coconut stout 🥥☕️⠀
coffee coconut stout, as you may have guessed, features loads of toasted coconut and freshly roasted peruvian coffee from our friends at @zoescafeandevents here in downtown greeley. the sweet, creaminess of the toasted coconut offers a perfect complement to the complex character contributed the mama nelly’s coffee, a blend of four different roasts of the same direct-trade peruvian beans. these delicious, unique flavors are supported by a full-bodied, yet balanced base stout brewed with both lactose and flaked oats for mouthfeel and a variety of chocolate malts, crystal malts, and roasted barley. ⠀

releases on draft and in 4-pack cans to-go tomorrow, 4.5 at noon. $14 per 4-pack, limit 1 case per person.⠀
