Ska Starts the New Year

“Dave has the title of President because he lost a coin toss. After graduating from Metropolitan State College in Denver, CO in 1993, Dave decided that beer and Durango were much more important than the Fox television station that he was interning at. With long time friend and fellow homebrewer, Bill Graham, he started Ska in a small corner unit of a warehouse in Durango. Dave has been there since the brewery began and handles marketing, sales, P.R. and all the various Presidential duties required of his title. Duties including but not limited to boat christenings, baby christenings, bike christenings, dog-walking, snowboard conditions testing, and status reports.”

Join us tonight from 5-7pm for four brews with Robin and and see why we think they are Ska-mazaing.

thirsty thursday

Rudie Session IPA  
A brew you can drink for breakfast. A beer to reward yourself with after a hard day’s work. or if your hard day’s work is mowing the lawn, consider drinking on the job.

Pairs great with breakfast, summer, sunny days, rainy days, winter, on the river, on the trail. Drink it any day, any time.
Euphoria Winter Seasonal Pale Ale 
Anarchic Enlightenment. Brewed in strict accordance with do-it-yourself methodology, the beer of choice for epic powder days. This seasonal beer is brewed in the DIY spirit along with our friends from Venture Snowboards. We brew Euphoria with them, and they make a Euphoria snowboard with us. We call it a Ska/Venture venture. Both make winter better, and both are hand-crafted in the mighty San Juans.
Modus Mandarina IPA  
Orange you glad we listened? Now available in cans, year-round. A unique twist on Modus Hoperandi, this citrus IPA is dry-hopped with a generous portion of Mandarina Bavaria hops and brewed with sweet orange peels. Steak, burgers and other grilled or smoked meats. Especially with a citrus marinade or sauce. Indian curries spiced with tamarind and coriander, Thai and Mexican dishes with spicy and citrus components. Desserts with orange and caramel overtones like orange creme caramels or flan, or even an orange cheesecake.
Modus Hoperandi IPA  

It’s old-man bitter. A mix of citrus and pine that will remind you of the time you went on a vision quest and woke up in a pine-grove full of grapefruit trees. An American-style India Pale Ale with a deep golden-orange color. Bitter and hoppy, with a surprisingly smooth finish.

SOUL MATES: Pairs well with strong, spicy foods such as curries/Thai food. Also works well with smoked or grilled meats, and for dessert, go for the sweet, like cheesecake or crème brulee.

See you Thursday!
