40th Anniversary Ale -
an Oak-Aged Strong Golden Ale with Pineapple and Champagne Yeast
Colorado’s First Craft Brewery turns the big 4-0 in 2019! To toast this milestone we brewed up a celebratory ale that kicks the party into high gear. A 9% Strong Golden Ale, our 40th Anniversary brew shines with a fruit forward tanginess from the pineapple addition paired with a citrusy hop backbone. Fresh oak chips added to the fermenter while cold-conditioning impart a subtle spicy, oaky flavor. Finally, champagne yeast nicely dries out the brew, leaving you with a crisp, clean, effervescent finish. Party like it’s 1979!
