Bierstadt’s Maibock is absolutely incredible
Yep, its pretty phenomenal. Also, Dry Dock's is pretty darn good as well. I really think there is a market inefficiency for tasty, rich bocks year-round.
Dude I had a damn good dopplebock at NB the other day... definitely sounded like a one off, but I honestly had the same thought- we have everything beer-wise in this state BUT year round bocks!
I'm really digging Gunny Black Lager from Good River. Excellent + Schwarzbier!
Anyone know if Grimm Brothers still distributes to Denver? I might be wrong, but I was thinking they were part of the Tivoli distro wing.
I’ve been flying through this Colorado Lager... its so damn tasty, madudes.
The official summer ‘18 beer for ol’ manbear
Crooked Stave Von Pilsner is very yummy!!
Comrade brewed Oktoberfest on June 21. It's going to be getting 12 weeks in the tank.
Rockyard's Pils is great!
But Odell is still rocking the constant placement in my fridge. It is the goods!
Got a sixer of the kolsch today, and It's fucking money.
The von Pilsner has been the best find for lager to go ..still need to go to bierstatd and try slow pils
Anyone know the shelf life on Odell’s Colorado Lager? Bought a sixer early this week and just noticed it’s dated 8/11/18 on the bottom of the can. I did not think this was released until the spring, so wondering how old this beer truly is. It was bought at a shop that turns its inventory quickly, so do not think it’s been gathering dust.
Perhaps it’s a best by date?
That was my thinking, which made me curious to shelf life to understand how old the beer is. Thanks
I think they used to do Best By dates with a 4 month window. Not sure if that still continues as its been a few years.
My experience with lagers is that they can still be tasty a few months in. I do think they are a style that I love super fresh, even more than IPA's to be honest, but when the freshness fades they can still remain a very good beer. I'd imagine that should be the case with an Odell product.
I’m sure with the canning line that Odell has those lagers would be good at about a year old honestly.. does anyone in the state can on their level? Serious question.
Maybe Ska and OB.
Bierstadt Slow Pour Pils confirmed awesome. Took some bros to Bierstadt on Friday night and everyone enjoyed it. It's so light on the palate but full of flavor. It really feels like something special.
I'm curious about how well Odell Lager will age, too. I guess "age" isn't the right term, but I wonder how long it'll hold up before turning to mush. It doesn't have the same characteristics that most of the fragile German examples do and it's in cans. I've had a few German dunkels and kellerbiers that were mostly still okay after 9-10 months.
It wouldn't shock me if that beer eventually saw non-CO distribution. I made it to their RINO tasting room last week and it was an easy tourist favorite. I think it's probably the best beer they've made in 10 years.
Haven't had anything below awesome from them.
Bierstadt is as close to drinking in Germany as you'll find in the US. They don't really go the "country lager" route and they don't do any top fermented items (alt, koelsch, weiss, etc.) but they nail everything they do. I would be interested in a legit kellerbier/landbier at some point, but otherwise I don't see how anyone could complain about what they do.
I know they don’t do any top fermented beers, but a Summer Koelsch would be Amazing!! I bet they would make an Amazing version, just like their other offerings.
During Bill and Ashleigh's stint at Prost they brewed Koelsch, alt, and weiss. They were excellent renditions, too. I asked about top fermented beers and hybrids when they opened and Bill said they won't be brewing any at Bierstadt. However, that's where collaborations come into play. They did a Koelsch with Westbound and a weiss with Comrade. I think they made a dark weiss with OMF, too.
Finally checking out Odell's Colorado Lager. I'm a fan. It would be a staple of I was still up here in Colorado.
A little off topic...but at Odell's new Rhino location and I cant believe how Denver has exploded since I moved. This area was a dead zone back then. You had Larimer Lounge a few blocks down and that was it. Now it's just insane. Like a totally different world.
Oh, and the Bierstadt Helles is the best helles I have yet to try.
While I agree its their best in ages, good luck finding anyone that can keep any of it for long enough to actually ‘age’
You are correct. I think their Helles gets overlooked due to the popularity of SPP. Every time I stop by to pick up Slow Pour, I always get at least one Helles.
One of the bartenders mentioned the collaboration Koelsch, but I couldn’t remember which brewery it was with. Any idea about availability? Wouldn’t mind trying it on one of these Stupidly Hot evenings we’ve been having.
They got a cool billboard for the Odell lager on I 25 south bout rest area of Cheyenne .. just glanced yesterday but it says the lager is 30 minutes ahead !
While you're out on a drive swing by for a cold one...
Reminds me of old wyo law back in day .. all passengers could drink but no driver !
Montana had that too for a while.
The way it should be if u live in last frontier
I just had River North's Pilsner (in bold red cans) and it was fantastic. Very light, slightly crisp, mellow maltiness, smooth hoppiness. I would say at this point it's one of the best pilsners I've ever had (but truth be told, not many). Was a great compliment to sushi. Crystal clear, just a beautiful beer.
