    So what great has hit the shelves in Denver in the past month or two. I may be traveling there sometime from Michigan.

    If you bring some Michigan goodies, like BB PT5 or Black Note, I may speak :)

    There are quite a few new beers that have come to Denver that are pretty awesome. Are you looking to go to pubs or liquor stores?

    Heres a few to look for:

    Orabelle tripel from Great Divide
    Lagunitas Sucks
    Green Flash Palate Wrecker
    Funkwerks saison or Deceit golden ale
    Crooked stave- anything
    Odell Ten Fidy Imperial Stout

    ^that's Oskar Blues Ten Fidy, not Odell

    I'd add:

    Odell Lugene Chocolate Milk Stout & Red Ale
    Avery Maharaja
    Great Divide Espresso Yeti (can also find Oak-Aged)
    Russian River Supplication, Temptation & Consecration still on the shelves at smaller stores.
    De Dolle Stille Nacht

    January is typically a slow month.

    I'd love to try Black Note if you had bottle space and wanted to do some in person trading!

    Some other bottles available right now:

    AC Golden Ctayt (BA Stout)
    River North Quandary (BA Quad)
    River North Barrel Aged Avarice (BA Stout)
    Funkwerks Tropic King

    I think there's a Quandary, then there's a BA Quandary if I'm not mistaken. Quandary itself is just a quad.

    Which smaller stores still have Supplication, Temptation, & Consecration? I'd love to get my hands on any or all of those!

    I'll toss in another recommendation for the "controversial" AC Golden Ctayt. You're unlikely to see it anywhere outside of Denver any time soon and it IS expensive...but it's damn tasty.

    On the other side of the coin, Backcountry Brewing bombers are unbelievably cheap and wonderful, too. Their Pale and Amber are some of the best around and bombers are just a few bucks each.

    I wish they would bottle some of their barrel aged Old Beer Wagon & Breakfast Stout :D

    With their recent expansion, I hope this wish comes true!

    Yeah - I'm hoping for Ore Bucket and Tart Saizin. For that matter, I'll just be glad to have (formerly known as) Telemark and Switchback in 6-packs.

    Wish they made it up to Fort Collins. Next time I am down in Denver I am going to have to grab a sixer of the Telemark.

    Sorry I'm a little late to the party. It's been a busy couple of days. Thanks again for the love! Even if I don't always reply to something you post, I definitely notice, and it's very much appreciated.

    We're also super excited about 6 packs. All the brewery staff had smiles on our faces last week as we left the brewery with our first six pack from our first bottling run. It was a 16 hour day, so that should tell you how stoked we were if we were able to smile at that point.

    Look for 6 packs of our year-round beers (Pale Ale, Amber, Pilsner, Wheat, & Porter) in Denver sometime in March. Maybe in liquor stores south of C-470 before March. We're still trying to figure out what we are going to do with specialty beers at this point, but we'll definitely be putting Breakfast Stout in either 12 oz or 22 oz bottles at some point. Ore Bucket? Same thing as the Double IPA, if we can procure the hops. May Bock? Definitely maybe. Bourbon Barrel Old Beer-Wagon and Tart SaiZin? That may be tough. Those were both one barrel beers and we're hoping we can replicate them one day. We did get a little more room for a few more barrels, but we still don't have a ton of room for them. So, we'll see.

    Again, feel free to contact me if you have any other questions.

    Telemark in six packs would be a regular purchase for me.

    If I could make that beer all the time, I would. We love it.
