Halos Vs. Horns

Tonight we feature two Boulder favorites that have hit the big show. Available nationwide, Avery and Oskar Blues have delighted microbrew fans for decades. Naughty Oskar Blues has been canning since the beginning, and Avery just turned to the dark side, switching their strong 22oz brews from bottles to 4-pack cans.

Join us tonight as Nico pours an Easter showdown of Halos vs. Horns, a strong beer tasting that’ll pair well with family gatherings. Nico is filling in for Robin, whom is scouring Scandinavia for the perfect pint. Nico will pour four from 5-7pm- don’t miss it!

We are closed Easter Sunday. We apologize for any inconvenience.




Avery Reverend Belgian Quadrupel

A divinely complex and beautifully layered beer with hints of dark cherries, currants, and molasses, complemented by an underlying spiciness. Sinfully smooth considering the high alcohol content.

Oskar Blues G’Knight Imperial Red

Our ‘Velvet M-80’ is a hefty, dry hopped double-red ipa with a nose full of aroma, a sticky mouthfeel, a malty middle and unctuous hop flavors. G’Knight sports a surprisingly sensuous finish for a beer of its size (8.7% ABV, 60 IBUs). It’s brewed in tribute to a fellow Colorado craft beer pioneer and Vietnam vet who died fighting a 2002 wild fire outside of our Lyons hometown. For all the details behind this tribute follow this link.
Oskar Blues Deviant Dale’s Imperial IPA
Deviant Dale’s Imperial IPA (8% ABV, 85 IBUs) was born at the cross roads, in a juke joint, as if Dale’s Pale Ale sold its soul to balance Deviant’s foreboding aromas of citrus, grapefruit rind and piney resins with a copper ball-of-fire color and inscrutable finish. The 2011 Great American Beer Festival Silver Medal Winner (American IPA Category) is the Devil incarnate with untold amounts of malt and hedonistic Columbus dry-hopping.
Avery Hog Heaven
This dangerously drinkable garnet beauty is a hop lover’s delight. The intense dry-hop nose and the alcohol content are perfectly balanced for a caramel malt backbone. This is a serious beer for serious beer aficionados. Oink!


See you tonight!
