Opened a bottle of Gueuze Tilquin ŕ l’ancienne from their 2014-2015 bottling last night. Pretty sour and very funky. Had a beautiful mushroom earthiness to it. Light baryard and a slight leather on the finish. Very dry and highly carbonated. Glad I have a few more from that season in the cellar.

Anyone else dig on sour beers? I know they don't pair too well a cigar, but they are damn delicious

My local farm brewery always has a couple. They're wonderful beers but they do sell less than anything else on the menu. Luckily the owner/brewer loves them so he always has two or three on tap. IMO they do go better on a hot day than any other time. They make the mouth sparkle as if they were much colder than they are.

Hit up a couple VA breweries the past few days before heading back to CO, the cherry on top was Adroit Theory out in the middle of nowhere, only been once before and was very happy to return. Too many to list, but had about a dozen tasters of some of the finest dark liquids around. I don't think their BA stuff is really next level yet, but their regular dark stuff and the endless variants were quite fun to enjoy before heading to the airport. Also refreshing to see another brewery with the majority of the menu being 10+%

I'm having the last bottle from a batch of barleywine I brewed back in 2017.

Some people ease themselves into New Year's Eve. I am not one of those people.

Panorama! Panorama!!

I actually brought a few beers (mostly CO stuff...Ben ) to our NYE party, but none of the craft beer guys showed, so they're back at home with me.

Default Re: What beers are you enjoying II?

After seeing so many crossovers between whiskey and beer, this one sounds pretty interesting and relatively unique, love the attention they're giving to the history. This is going to be the first release Weldwerks is allowing proxy pickup so I think there's a good chance I won't be able to buy any (you purchase tickets ahead of time then pick up at the brewery) but still a cool idea, I'll give it a try

DOUBLE BARREL 1910 MEDIANOCHE
When Old Forester® released their 1910 bourbon in late 2018, we quickly fell in love and it has become one of our favorites. After we managed to secure a few of the casks used to produce 1910, we knew we wanted to incorporate the same double barrel technique Old Forester uses to produce their unique bourbon. The journey began by aging Medianoche in four freshly emptied 6-11 year-old Kentucky bourbon barrels for 12 months, which feature a heavy toast and light char, identical to the initial casks used for 1910. Then we racked each Medianoche bourbon barrel into a freshly emptied Old Forester 1910 barrel, which are heavily charred and lightly toasted casks used to finish mature Old Forester bourbon for six to nine months. Mirroring their process, this batch of Medianoche was finished in the 1910 barrels for nine months, resulting in over 21 months of barrel aging between the two casks.

13.5% ABV. Available in 22 oz bottles to-go for $28 each, with a limit of 2 bottles per person.

The other one they're releasing at the same time sounds pretty interesting as well:

VANILLA DESTINATIONS
As shamelessly huge fans of the folks at Bottle Logic and the amazing beers they produce, we knew we had to get a collaboration on the books when they made the trek to Greeley for the inaugural WeldWerks Invitational Festival back in June of 2018. So we decided to brew a massive Imperial Stout, combining techniques and favorite malts from both breweries, and laid it to rest in freshly emptied 8-12 year Heaven Hill bourbon barrels for 18 months. After barrel aging, we conditioned the beer on a blend of Ugandan and Fiji vanilla beans for several weeks, then finished the beer with freshly roasted Belize cacao nibs from Cultura Craft Chocolate in Denver.

13.1% ABV. Available in 22 oz bottles to-go for $32 each, with a limit of 4 bottles per person.

Gonna be an expensive day

Opposite ends of the spectrum this past weekend:

Pliny The Younger
Crooked Stave Gift Of Time - Stout Month

This Gift Of Time release was a blend of stouts aged for 44, 45, and 46 months in heaven hill barrels. This is their third release and the best so far, first two were 24 and 36 months. I believe they partnered with Evil Twin to make the original juice, Evil Twin also collabed for their anniversary stout last year which was thick as oil and delicious as well. They're known country wide for their sours, but I think their stouts are the real jewel. Most if not all don't make it out of the taproom

Pulled up to River North last night as they were doing last call, starting today all bars and restaurants are closed for dining/drinking in for (up to) 8 weeks. Figured for the last beer poured in Denver for the foreseeable future I should go big

2020 Barrel Aged Double Averice - aged in Knob Creek barrels

2019 version was 19+%, this year's was a much more approachable 17.4%. I had a hard time drinking more than a few ounces of the 19 stuff, but this one has a perfect amount of heat
