To everything there is a season...  A time to drink rich full-bodied brew, a time for light refreshing pint. Our beers embrace the changing seasons.  At Denver Beer Co. we’re adventurous and always willing to try something new. So when the crazy idea to brew a beer with lychee nuts and star fruit pops into our head, we might just try it out. As a result, your taste buds will always have the opportunity to dance to a new tune.  The beers on tap change weekly, here's what we have On Tap right now!

 

Raspberry Duchess Yum-Yum- This light bodied American Ale was brewed with a hefty amount of raspberries to create the ultimate springtime brew.  Mild malty sweetness on the nose with the unmistakeable raspberry back.  The drink is light in body but full in flavor with a slight tart "zip" on the finish.    5.2%  ABV

Shadow Mountain Vrucht- While Casey was on a work trip to Chicago he chatted up International beer wizard Randy Mosher about several things beer, after a beer or two the decision to do a collaboration beer for CBC (Craft Brewers Conference April 7th-12th here in Denver).  Randy, being an avid lover of Wit styles lead them to an old Amber Wit recipe using sour orange peel and indian coriander.  The result is a murky peach-colored pour with notes of lemon zest, and succulent orange.  Using Nelson Sauvin and Sorachi Ace hops gives a bitter backbone to this flavorful brew.    6.2%  ABV

Belgian Pale Ale- Dried orange peel, candied sugars, and spicy esters on the nose of this easy-drinking spring brew.  The drink is smooth with plantain and clove up front leading into a flavorful combination of bright hops and Belgian notes.    5.6%  ABV

Nelson Session Ale- Inspired by the complex profile of an American IPA but toned down to a more "sessionable" ABV, this brew was made using only "Nelson Sauvin" hops from New Zealand to give unique floral tones.  Classic lemongrass and grapefruit on the nose while pungent gooseberry and straw pop on the palate.  The finish is light and crisp with notes of blueberry and grain.    4.8%  ABV

Graham Cracker Porter-  Like a campfire in a glass, this robust beauty has seductive notes of vanilla, smoked cedar, and mulling spices.  A dark pour with mild lacing, she is a rollercoaster of lush chocolate diving into a semi-dry finish of roasted malt and biscuit.  5.6% ABV

Rouge on Rouge- The newest release from the cellar, this Belgian Red Ale spent over 6months in spent California Red Zinfandel barrels to give a powerful brew.  The nose has plenty going on: dried raspberries, sour fig, and vanilla crowd the intial nose while tart cherry and rasin pop as the drink warms up.  The drink is full of tannic barrel notes rounded with both tart, and sweeter fruit notes.    6.8%  ABV 

EIS-Barleywine- A while back we took some of our Barleywine and aged it EIS style:  freezing the barrel allowed us to extract a higher alcohol/fuller bodied brew which then sat on American oak.  Bold vanilla and caramel on the nose while the drink is full bodied with sherry-like fig and candied dates with a warming, lingering finish.    13.2%  ABV
