Complete 10 lists – try new beer and get your name immortalized on the wall!
- 1. Sweetwater Happy Ending An Imperial Stout brewed with crystal, chocolate, black, and roasted malts and Centennial, Willamette, and Cascade hops.
- 2. Breckenridge Opehlia Subtle hints of citrus round out the complex aroma of Mosaic hops, for a beer so drinkable, it’ll last through multiple acts.
- 3. Fort Collins Red Banshee A striking ruby hue and spicy floral nose punctuate the pleasant sweetness of this brew. Crystal malt coalesces with the earthy flavor of Willamette hops–a hauntingly beautiful combination.
- 4. Bell’s Smitten Golden Rye The combination of sharp citrus & resinous flavors from the hops with the earthy, rustic overtones of the rye malt contribution yield an interesting take on the American Pale Ale.
- 5. Sixpoint Sweet Action Sweet action is an idea; a concept. It is a simple representation of what makes beer great – the marriage of barley and hops in a harmonious balance of sweet and bitter!
- 6. Coney Island Albino Python Shmaltz Brewing Company reveals a most charming attraction: the sensual dance of provocative hops and spices entwined with a sumptuous and elegant malt body. Taste the rapture. Surrender to temptation. Seduce and be seduced.
- 7. Lagunitas A Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Way smooth and silky with a nice wheatyness. Just the little sumpin’ sumpin’ we all need.
- 8. Goose Island Lolita You might think this is a Russian style girly beer, but instead it is a very sophisticated Raspberry Belgian Ale. Fermented with brettanomyces and fresh raspberries, this brew is bright yet deep with spices and edges of the fruits natural tart quality to give it a white wine kind of finish.
- 9. Green Flash Le Freak Le Freak is a modern ale created by converging two beer styles, Belgian Trippel and American Imperial IPA. The use of two yeast strains further marries the styles and American hops give the beer its modern flare.
- 10. Flying Dog Doggie Style Dry Hopped with a load of Cascade hops grown in the Pacific Northwest. Doggie Style has enough hop character to satisfy hop-heads, but isn’t overpoweringly hoppy. It’s brilliant amber-copper color and pleasant malt flavor comes from the addition of Carastan malts.
