Denver Beer Hunter’s Report – 10/18/2013

GABF kicked my ass. It’s only Monday, but the last thing I want to think about is beer.  Regardless, I’ll do my best to keep the updates rolling. Notice the dramatically smaller list to begin the week…let’s see what happens as the week progresses.

Here’s this week’s report:

  • Last minute addition: Ska Brewing / DC Brau collaboration with The Pietasters Taster’s Choice Coffee Doppelbock is starting to hit.  I assume we’ll see more next week.
  • Great Divide Grand Cru w/Peaches is out now (although it has hit very few places. Look for more next week).
  • Dogfish Head American Beauty is out now!  Open up your windows, cuz the Candyman’s in town.
  • Elevation Downpour, a Fresh Hop Extra IPA, has hit…as in now.  Remember that last year it was an imperial red?  Going forward, Downpour will be a slightly different fresh hop each year.
  • Saint Arnold Pumpkinator has hit (again, very few places…look for more next week).
  • It looks like AleSmith is here to stay for sure…they’ve sent some new goodies including Old Numbskull and Grand Cru.
  • Some new Hoppin’ Frog beers have shown up, including Frog’s Hollow Double Pumpkin, BA Boris, Hopped-Up Goose Juice and BA Outta Kilter.
  • Ommegang’s Take the Black Stout, the latest Game of Thrones beer, started to hit last week.  More hitting this week.
  • Odell Woodcut No. 7 is coming soon.  12.5% RIS. Yes please. Releases at the brewery on the 26th, so hopefully we’ll see it in stores around that time frame?
  • Ballast Point ???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Look for more updates throughout the week (if there are any more to report).  Please share any Denver area beer release news you might have either in the comments or on Twitter @ssteigerwald.

Disclaimer: I do not post about Russian River, Cantillon, various Firestone Walker and other very rare beers.  Thank the hoarders for this…some things still need to be kept secret from these scoundrels.

  1. GABF kicked mine and my boyfriend’s ass as well. And then we realized we’ve got a homebrew club meeting Thursday and a local beer fest this weekend — hopefully we’ll be recovered by then haha.

    • It’s been my policy for a while now, but since some Russian River goodies were dropped this week, I don’t want people to think I don’t know…I just don’t post about these items.

      You know…I don’t want anyone to claim they “might be one step ahead of me”.

  2. Heard from the beer guy at Mile High Spirits that Ballast Point not likely to get here until the very end of this year maybe beginning of 2014. 😦

  3. Also I’m getting concerned that we won’t be getting AleSmith Evil Dead Red here in Denver as it’s all over CA now and not a hint of it coming with the rest of the AleSmith stuff that’s in stores now.
