Ben’s December Spotlight- Crystal Springs
It is gifting season and we have the best gift of all, BEER! And beer with remarkable savings that will help manage your holiday budget. Keeping things local and intimate, Crystal Springs Brewing Company officially opened in 2010, but the owner has been passionately home brewing since 1988. The tools and skills he acquired then has carried his company to being one of the most popular breweries in Colorado. The high control and low volume brewing style the company utilizes means they have a lot of shifting styles and flavors, changing season to season, while keeping a few of the gems year-round. A couple of our favorites are the Blood Orange Kolsch and the Naughty Marilyn Belgian Style Ale. The Blood Orange Kolsch is a crisp Hugely refreshing German style ale. It has a subtle orange aroma, citrus flavors and just a hint of raspberries. The Naughty Marilyn brings a hefty set to the table, brewed with a Belgian yeast strain that gives it a citrusy quality, while keeping a well-rounded flavor with slight hops and spices. A dry finish and easy drinking qualities gives it its slogan, “Watch out for Marilyn!” Also in the year round lineup is the IPA with all American hops it is complex huge, resinous, citrusy, piney, with a killer finish. One sip tells it all; then, it gets even better. Be sure to come by and check out the rest of their selection, and enjoy up to $2.00 off their products! Let Crystal Springs and Pettyjohn’s help bring joy and happiness to the season with impressive (and discounted!) cast of beers.
