Thirsty Thursday Beer Tasting

This week, Robin navigates the river while pouring tried and true Colorado brews. He will pour Eddyline Brewing from Buena Vista and Asher Brewing (Organic) from Boulder (Niwot/Gunbarrel). Customers who have tried Asher’s Tree-Hugger have been extremely impressed. Grab some friends and make an E-line to our semi-organic beer tasting. Hopefully we don’t need a Z-rig to get you off the floor!

Last week Robin poured Odd13 and Acidulous Brewing. Everyone was pleasantly surprised to enjoy these sours so much. Robin has been a beer nerd at Pettyjohn’s for six and a half years and he loves to see new faces. We hope to see some tonight!


Eddyline River Runners Pale Ale

Just as satisfying as crushing a Class V line, yet easy as the eddy after. Amazing grapefruit aroma with a light, dry finish, this Pale is less bitter and more of a summer chugging beer. Winner of the 2012 International Style Pale Ale Gold Medal. 5.75% ABV, 60 IBUs.
Eddyline Crank Yanker IPA
Like your favorite single track, this IPA has it all! An insanely drinkable IPA, with enough maltiness to balance the incredible citrus aromoa and hop finish. You’ll be racing back for another! 2014 World Beer Championship Silver Medal. 7.0% ABV, 70 IBUs.
Asher Green Bullet IPA
Much like the original 18th century British IPAs, the Green Bullet utilizes the same intense hoppiness and high alcohol content. The brewers take extra measures by sending the hot wort through a bed of organic whole cone hops, wielding complex hop flavor and aroma without cringing bitterness. 7.0% ABV, 45 IBUs.

Asher Tree Hugger Amber

Many know Fat Tire as the basis of comparison for amber style ales, and that would make Tree Hugger a much bolder and more flavorful beer. Crystal and Munich malts bring a caramel sweetness to the brew, while the organic German hops produce an unmistakably dry finish.  With toffee aroma and deep amber color, the Tree Hugger Amber tastes bold and delicious, and has become my new basis of comparison for amber ales.  6.0% ABV, 25 IBUs.

See you Thursday!
