The BoB

When it comes to the craft beer world drinkers have learned to appreciate the art and craft that goes into the brewing process. But the art of a brewed beverage can include so much more than beer; it can also be talking about a well balanced, smooth cup of coffee. Well this past summer the two came together in the small suburb of Englewood, Colorado where the world of coffee and beer combined into one establishment. With long hours starting at 7 am, and late nights going until 10 pm this is The Brews on Broadway, more appropriately known as The BoB.
After finding a vintage looking theatre sign you know you are at the right place, and after walking into this spacious tap room it is obvious that it brings together the qualities of a coffee shop and a brewery. It is a large industrial looking building that greets you with the espresso machine, but walk past that to the bar and look around to see what a comfortable environment they have created.  There are cozy chairs to sit in, tables for large groups with bright décor all around the building. But the most visually striking aspect of this tasting room is the large brick wall with the garage doors that leads to the spacious beer garden. The brewing equipment is visible from the bar located behind the chalkboard menu and tap handles. With several beers to choose from in a variety of styles they all are unique but familiar.
With a couple different varieties of English style ales on tap it is best to start light and that would be with the City Mark Mild. Coming in at a very sessionable 4.5 percent this is a very balanced beer that has a light body, but still has a good malt flavor. The hops are not very prominent and this beer has a clean aftertaste making it a very refreshing beer and easy to enjoy any time of year. For another English style with a slightly bolder flavor try the Placer ESB. With a dark gold color, this beer brings forward a strong malt flavor, but it was balanced out by an equally strong hop flavor. The hops provide a great bitter note that also has a subtle smoky flavor. The finish of this beer is not clean, and has a slight lingering note to a very complex beer making you want to enjoy another sip.
To go along with the English style ales the BoB also offers to hop forward options and it starts with the Eaglerock Pale Ale. With a dark copper color this pale ale has a bright, citrus forward aroma that carries through to a bright, and acidic flavor. A hop forward beer with a prominent bitter note this beer has plenty of malt to balance it out and not overpower the beer. Very refreshing and more balanced, this is a great representation of a classic pale ale. For those craving a strong hop flavor that is available in the option of the Tuilerie’s IPA. This is a true IPA from the rich copper color, to the dry mouth feel, and the bitter flavor profile. The aftertaste lingers and lasts for a while making this a beer any IPA fan will truly enjoy. For a non English beer and a non hop beer there is a beer that brings both aspects of The BoB into one beverage, and that is the Social Club Coffee Milk Stout. This has a surprisingly light body for a stout but it is full on flavor. With a strong coffee flavor, creamy mouth feel, and subtle hint of chocolate it is a well balanced beer with a clean aftertaste making it very easy to enjoy, and a great style of stout.
With a wide variety of beverages to choose from and a expansive, diverse tap list it is obvious why The BoB has cemented themselves into this small suburb of Denver. Combine that with a friendly staff, and a very relaxed atmosphere and this is truly a neighborhood establishment where it would be very easy to pass the time with a group of friends. To go along with the early morning hours and late night hours it can be easy to enjoy a great beverage any time of day. So whether you want a great cup of coffee, or to enjoy a couple pints and watch TV swing down to Englewood and relax in the comfort of The BoB.

Saint Patrick's Brewing

Despite the growth of craft beer in Colorado there are still certain styles that can be difficult to find on a regular basis. One of those styles is lagers, those clean, crisp refreshing ales that take time, cold fermentation, and great execution to make. So to find a brewery that only makes artisan lagers in a wide variety of styles is a hidden gem, and then to find out that they are only making them 25 gallons at a time shows the true craft this brewery has. That is the case in a small brewery in Englewood, Colorado where the lagers are pouring in traditional, hybrid, and experimental styles at Saint Patrick’s Brewing Company.
What started off in a garage in Centennial has now evolved into a small tap room located in a small row of warehouses. With only 18 seats this tap room is very small, but very comfortable and inviting. A large chalkboard displaying the available beers is visible for all to see, but the highlight of this tap room décor is the artwork that hangs from the walls. Prior to crafting lagers co-owner Chris Phelps was an artist, and some of his amazing paintings grace the walls creating a great eye piece. Right behind the bar top lays a group of small fermenters where these small batches are turning into beer. With so many different styles of lagers to choose from, deciding which one to try first can be overwhelming.  
A good rule of thumb to follow when tasting beers is to start light, and that would be the Luminosity, a traditional Helles meets a Belgian Farmhouse. This beer has all the traditional aspects of a Helles like the light body, crisp mouth feel, and light malt flavor. The addition of honey and fresh citrus zest gives this beer a bright fresh flavor with a subtle sweetness. Factor in the five hop additions and this is a complex beer that is balanced, finishes clean, and is very refreshing. For something still light, but with a much different flavor profile there is the Colorado Golden Lager, a Czech Pilsner with Saison influences. The honey and citrus flavors are still visible in the beer, but contrary to the Luminosity, this beer has a much more prominent hop flavor. This creates a dry mouth feel with a slight bitterness, but it is not overpowering. Instead the end result is a more complex beer that has a slight bitterness in the aftertaste, but is still very refreshing and easy to drink.
For something slightly more malt forward there is the Cerevisia, a traditional Vienna style lager with influences of the California Common style. A rich copper color sets the tone of this beer and the flavor profile is slightly sweet with a more malt forward flavor. The bitterness from the hops are still visible, but secondary in this clean beer. For fans of the dark beers, there is the Midnight Mocha, a Schwarz beer. This dark black lager had strong notes of coffee and chocolate which created a slight bitterness. This was balanced out by honey, and lactose added created a creamy mouth feel which added to the mocha flavor profile. With a surprisingly light body, and strong flavor profile this is a very unique beer that was very easy to drink. Also available are various seasonal lagers including a Czech Chai Ginger, Chocolate Pumpkin Lager, Pumpkin Vanilla Chai, Lana’I IPL and a traditional Dry Stout all released throughout the year.
Since opening their doors in 2012, Saint Patrick’s Brewing has been bringing forward the art of lagers. With the amount of time and the craft that goes into each batch the end result is truly a craft. With so many distinct beers to choose from the styles of this beer are endless, and the light bodied refreshing beers are all complex but easy to drink. This is truly a brewery that has brought forward a difficult style of beer to make, and the small 25 gallon batches bring the craft to life. While lagers can be difficult to find on the craft beer level, Saint Patrick’s has made it a little easier. So when looking for a new brewery, or style to try venture down to Santa Fe Circle in Englewood and give Saint Patrick’s a try, you may find a new favorite.

Farm to Pint Glass

Each August the beer world gathers and celebrates the harvest of one of its ingredients, the hop. That little plant that provides beer with such complex flavors and brings forth notes of pine, fruit, bitterness, and flowers. In celebration of the harvest, brewers will acquire as many fresh hops as they can and turn it into a beer known as a fresh hop, or wet hop, and it is something craft beer fans look forward to every year. Recently we had a chance to assist with harvesting hops and were able to follow the steps from harvest to beer, or farm to pint glass drinking with Copper Kettle Brewing Company in Denver, Colorado.
So on a Friday night, we ventured to Voss Farms in Arvada, Colorado and were greeted by rows of hop plants in all sorts of varieties including Mystery X, Cascade, Chinook, and a couple others. After cutting the vines down, they were carried over to a stripper which helped to separate the vine from the rest of the plant. Then, they were brought to a table and the picking could begin. With a pile of vines, leaves, and hops in front of you picking the hops was a labor of love and the citrus aromas filled the area as these tiny little cones were picked and filled into storage bins. The hops being picked on this particular evening were Chinook and Cascade, twenty pounds of each. After starting around 5:30 that evening the last of the hops were picked, weighed out, and bagged by 10:00 pm and now it was time to help turn these into beer.
After the drive back to Denver and a short night of sleep the brewery was alive by 5 am the next morning brewing the batches of beer with these fresh hops. With the 40 pounds of Chinook and Cascade, plus the Mystery X brewer Gordon Pencis harvested earlier in the week, there were plenty of beers on tap with these great, aromatic, and flavorful hops. From firkins to full batches, once all is said and done, there were five different beers made with these hops from Voss Farms. After the boil had been chilled, and the yeast had been pitched, there were two beers that came from all the hard work. First there was the Mystery Man, which was a Belgian Style IPA made with the fresh Mystery X hops, and the return of the Hoppa which utilized the fresh Chinook and Cascade hops.
The Mystery Man had a rich color and was full of flavor from aroma to finish. The Mystery X hops are an unknown varietal that were full of flavor and it started with a bright, citrus forward aroma that carried through to the beer. The beer was very light in body with a great citrus flavor full of complexities that is hard to point out. The malt flavor was present, but very subtle. The hops carried this beer’s flavor profile from beginning to end which was finished with a hint of sweetness from the yeast strain. The Hoppa had more of a pale appearance, but had just as much flavor. The Cascade hops brought a great floral aroma, and the Chinook brought an herbal note to the beer, but they worked in harmony and the flavors melded together into a complex balanced beer. The acidity was mellow and the beer finished very clean, making it very refreshing and light.
Although the amount of IPAs on the market are available in abundance the release of the fresh hop beers are still special and something craft beer lovers should always look forward to. It is the culmination of a year of hard work to keep these hops alive, allow them to grow, harvest them, and let them to shine with great beer made by the most skilled of brewers. Fresh hop beers are a reminder to respect the ingredients that go into each batch, and to respect the farmers who grow and supply these ingredients on a regular basis. To go along with it, the fact that these beers come and go so quickly is a reminder to craft beer lovers to enjoy every sip, because it is going to be a long year before they are available again. So for a brief moment of time take a break from the mainstream IPAs and enjoy the fresh hop beers available, and raise your glass to the farm to pint glass drinking.

While there are many things that make craft beer great one of the best has to be taking a traditional beer and making it modern or unique. Take the classic Berliner Weisse for example where a small brewery added a unique yeast strain that created a new complex flavored beer while maintaining the integrity and flavor profile of what this German sour wheat should be. The brewery is Funkwerks in Fort Collins, Colorado and the beer is Provincial, a traditional Berliner Weisse, but with a Belgian Wheat yeast strain creating a unique beer slightly higher in alcohol than the traditional version. After sampling a bottle of this 5.6 percent light ale these are our thoughts on this classic ale.
After pouring into a traditional tulip glass this beer had the appearance of a Berliner Weisse from the hazy pale gold color with a snow white head. But after the pour is where this beer took on a life of its own, and it started with the aroma. The Belgian yeast strain gives off a bright, and acidic aroma with a strong fruit note, the most prominent being pineapple. There was a yeast undertone to the aroma which only led to the indications that this would be a beer that had a brightness and tartness, but also had some body to it as well. The only thing to do was take a sip and see how well this beer was interpreted.
 The aroma follows through to the flavor quite nicely and it starts with a very light body that matches its appearance perfectly. The yeast strain does give off a subtle flavor that is more prominent than in a traditional Berliner Weisse, but the flavor that sticks out the most are the fruits. The refreshing taste of tropical fruits filled the mouth with each sip and that was most dominated by the bright and acidic pineapple. But of course it wouldn’t be a Berliner Weisse if there wasn’t a delicious sour quality to this ale as well, and thanks to the lacto bacillus that was added to this beer that flavor is there.
Unlike other beers of the style the sourness is still prominent, but more of a secondary flavor profile which makes this beer have a lot of depth. This was achieved with the sour ingredient sitting overnight before the beer was boiled and fermented. Combine all the ingredients together and this is a very complex beer that has a dry mouth feel. It is not so complex in flavors, but instead it has various layers of flavor from bright, to tropical fruit, to the sourness that one would expect.
After having such a rich and deep flavor the Provincial has a surprisingly clean aftertaste. The only thing left to remind you of this beer after a sip is a slight dryness in the mouth which makes taking that next sip all the more easy. Once all is said and done this is a very light and refreshing beer that brings a modern twist on a classic ale. Even though it is considered a Berliner Weisse this beer will appeal to not only fans of that, but also fans of Belgian Saisons, and will be a great beer to introduce people into the wonders of sours. So whatever kind of beer you are craving reach for the Provincial and see what a unique beer it really is for yourself.

Brews News 9-3-13

Labor Day and the relaxing three day weekend that it brought has come and gone, and now we are all faced with the prospect of being back at work. Fortunately for most of us it is only a four day work week with plenty to look forward to each day in the world of craft beer in Denver and all around the state. Here is a look at what is going on this week.
While the festival season is starting to wind down in anticipation of the Great American Beer Festival there are still some great ones around town. This Friday night September 6 in Fort Collins there will be the 5th Annual Fall Harvest Brew Fest. This event opens to VIP at 6 pm and the general public an hour later at 7. This event will feature 40 different breweries, great food trucks, and even some local distilleries including Colorado Vodka. Tickets are still available and will be an extra $5 at the door, so get them early and enjoy some great beer in a great setting.
With all the new breweries opening up anniversary parties are becoming very common but this Saturday, September 7 is the anniversary of the first Colorado microbrewery! That’s right Boulder Beer Co. is turning 34 and are celebrating with their 34th Rave which is a mix between an anniversary party and another festival. Starting at 2 pm at the tap room which started it all a $30 cover will get you access to over 30 rare and tap room only beers from Boulder Beer and 30 other Colorado breweries. This will be a great event and a chance to raise your glass to the original Colorado microbrewery.
New Brewery Openings:
Boulder, Colorado is going to be a very popular town this weekend as that is also where the craft beer community will welcome its newest brewery. Sanitas Brewing Company located on Frontier Avenue in Boulder will open their doors Friday, September 6 at 3:00 and will continue the festivities all weekend long. Those who have been awaiting this brewery to open know that a couple weeks ago they did their first tapping of the Snow White IPA to rave reviews and we are all excited to see what else line their tap walls come this weekend.

New Beer Releases:
It is going to be a great week for new beer releases as we leave the Summer behind and enter into the fall, and already this week there have been two new beers to try.
-Up north in Loveland at Loveland Aleworks they tapped Buzzy’s Burundi Brown a coffee ale that they collaborated with 3 Coffee and Roastery on.
-West of Denver in Arvada, Colorado at Odyssey Beerwerks they released their newest beer in the “Big Hops” series with Hops, Paper, Scissors Red Ale. This Red IPA was made with 5 different hops that were added 7 different times throughout the brewing process.
-Fresh Hop Month is officially upon us and at Copper Kettle Brewing Company in Denver they will be tapping a Firkin of the Copper Hopper with Fresh Mystery X hops on Wednesday. This will be the first of four Fresh hop firkins Copper Kettle will tap this month.
-Copper Kettle Brewing Company will also be tapping a Barrel Aged Imperial Stout on Saturday. This imperial stout has been aging in Bourbon Barrels for months, and was recently on hand pull last week, so it will be interesting to see how the flavor profile will change once it hits the draft line.
-In what has to be the most unique new beer this week on Wednesday, September 4 Renegade will be tapping their Beetnik Saison. This saison was made with fresh beets and should come with a very refreshing, but interesting flavor profile. Either way it sounds like a must try.
In additional news Elevation Beer Company has recently bottled their 8 Second Kolsch and it is currently for sale out of the tap room only. Hopefully this beer will be in the Denver area before long, and we will keep you posted on that as we find out more information.
So there is the week ahead in craft beer, sounds like something great to do, and something new to try every night. Cheers!
