Another week is here as we inch toward the end of the summer. It seems like the entire state of Colorado is on fire with all of the red sunrises and sunsets, waking up to ash raining from the sky and an undeniable smell of smoke that is enveloping most of the front range right now! We need rain and TONS of it! A HUGE THANK YOU to all of our firefighters that are dedicating countless hours to eradicating the flames.
This year has thrown unprecedented challenges at all of us and there is no denying it. As we continue to maneuver through 2020 and conquer every obstacle our business is still growing and we are continually bringing in new craft breweries and beverages to the whole state of Colorado.
On the brighter side of things, we have a brand new, local supplier that we are adding to our family of brands!
Verboten Brewing and Barrel Project
CSA is happy to welcome Verboten Brewing to our team! Brewing fantastic, cutting edge beer in Loveland, Colorado since 2013, the team at Verboten likes to make bold, flavorful beers for all to enjoy. Thinking of Something Orange (TOSO) is an orange honey blossom wheat beer that commands the drinkers attention. Well balanced, not overly sweet and brimming with orange character, this beer is surely a crowd pleaser! On the other end of the spectrum, Killer Boots holds it down for the darker side of beer. Using a house-made caramel sauce, Killer Boots is chocolatey, slightly roasty and perfectly sweet. Clocking in at 6%, Killer Boots is a beer that you can come back to time and time again- just like a good porter should. What kind of a release would this be without a hazy IPA?… Stealth Haze utilizes some of the most sought after hops to deliver a tropical punch that is reminiscent of pineapple, guava and rounded off with a little dank citrus. Its what the people want! But don’t worry all you beer nerds, we got a perfectly crispy boi in the pipe, too! Verbotens Pilsner is as good a pilsner as anyone could want. Made with local malts from Root Shoot and noble hops, Pilsner is made to pair with hot days. Drink cold and remember- a six pack of Pilsner is not really meant to be shared.
Quite the release we got teed up here! Not only are we seeing their annual Roadsmarys Baby release, we are also getting in their Ok2berfest Marzen Lager! Both shout “end-of-summer” and are here to help us usher in the cooler days we’ve been dreaming of for the last few weeks. Roadsmarys Baby is all barrel aged in rum barrels- a perfect barrel for aging pumpkin beer. Spiced just right and with hints of vanilla, this beer is one of Two Roads best selling seasonal releases. Ok2berfest is a classic Marzen Lager that is a little toasty, amber in color and light in body. Crisp, clean drinking for all to enjoy!
C Squared is now being offered in a variety pack! They are offering 8 cans per pack including the seasonal rotator. Right now the seasonal is Cuhl, made with mint and cucumber, and it is especially delicious. Even if we are feeling ready for colder temps, this cider is an awesome way to beat the heat!
Stay safe out there, Colorado!
