COLORADO STYLE IPA
A WILD RIDE OF HOPINESS.
The Class V (5) is named after the whitewater classifications of I through V+. Class I being a tame, lightly rough water flow while Class V+ being a fast, dangerous, whitewater section of a river.
This is a very big, bold but balanced double IPA. A very dry finish with a huge but not completely over the top hop flavor and aroma. Citrus and pine dominate and, in combination with the dry finish, produce a sharp, clean bitterness that encourages the next sip. Another beer to be careful of, as the drinkability of this beer can hides the high ABV.
CLEAN, CRISP, CLEAR...A BETTER PILSNER
Your great-great grandfather would be happy you are drinking this beer. It is a clean, crisp, and brilliantly clear lager that packs much more flavor than you might expect. Soft malt and slight sweetness in the delicate aroma mingle with subtle, floral hops. A high percentage of corn lends the perception of slight sweetness even though the beer is quite dry. A respectable level of hop bitterness and flavor hearken back to pre-Prohibition days when American lagers were . . . well . . . better. This is a substantial Pilsner that is at the same time approachable and flavorful.
WADE IN. GET HOOKED.
This hazy hop fest reminds us of those epic summer days chasing hungry trout when the water is off, but the fish are on. The oats and flaked barley create a silky and full mouthfeel, while the hops lend generous citrus and fruit notes. The result is a, juicy, aromatic, and satisfying Hazy IPA.
MANGO BLONDE ALE
MANGO FOR IT
We named this easy-drinking Mango Blonde Ale after the captivating canyon of gentle water on the Colorado River. A dash of mango personality keeps things interesting, while wheat and honey malts set the tone. A restrained hop bitterness lets everything else shine through like a red rock canyon sunset.
BELGIAN GOLDEN ALE
FRUITY, SPICY, SEXY AND DANGEROUS
The Fu Fighter is named after the Futaleufu River in Chile and the grassroots, conservation efforts occuring to protect the river from hydroelectric damming, flooding of valley's and displacement of indigenous people.
This big, bold, warming beer that remains remarkably dry and drinkable. Lively fruit and pepper dominate the aroma and flavor, while careful fermentations practices mellow the high alcohol content and avoid harsh alcohol notes. Specials Belgian yeast strains produce unique, delicate flavors and aromas in this pale, effervescent beer. A big hit with women who favor dry, white wine. Be careful, a few of these beers can be consumed easily.

TROPICAL FRUIT ALE
BRIGHT, FUN & SUMMER STOKE
A collaboration with our friends at Downriver Equipment. This Unfiltered Fruit Ale is sessionable, silky-smooth, and full of bright tropical fruit. Mild tartness accentuates the coconut and passion fruit, which are a perfect combination. It's a day at the beach in a can.
GERMAN BLACK LAGER (SCHWARZBIER)
FLAVORFUL AND MORE THAN THE SUM OF ITS PARTS.
The Gunny is named after the Gunnison River in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park.
This a traditional Schwarzbier, a German black lager, that brings together a wonderful group of subtle flavors that combine into something far greater. A restrained roast, caramel malts, German Noble hops, and a clean lager yeast make for a flavorful, very drinkable black lager. This is no Stout or Porter - it has just enough roast to darken the color, provide complexity, and build on a delightful Pilsner-like aroma and flavor.
HUGE FLAVOR. SMOOTH FLOW.
A full-bodied, robust porter with notes of coffee, chocolate, toffee, dark fruits, and just enough tart cherry to balance its malt-forward character. Named after one of our favorite spots in the Grand Canyon where everything is bigger.
