Media Advisory: Colorado Pint Day Will Take Over 93 Brewery Taprooms on March 20

Following last year’s participation by 80 Colorado breweries, Colorado Pint Day has been announced with 93 breweries from Ska Brewing in Durango, Colo. to dozens of breweries on the Front Range.


This year’s custom-made pint glass artist is the brainchild of illustrator Shaw Nielsen, who helped this year’s Colorado Craft Beer Week theme of “Craft Beer – It’s In Our Nature” come to life. More than 15,000 pint glasses were purchased by Colorado breweries, which will then be sold to customers on March 20. $1 from each pint sold will be donated to the Colorado Brewers Guild.

Seedstock Brewery Claims Third Best Beer of 2018 by Beer Connoisseur as the Only Denver-based Brewery to Grace List

DENVER – January 14, 2019 – Seedstock Brewery’s Dusseldorf Alt was named the third best beer on Beer Connoisseur’s Top 100 Beers of 2018 list, while the brewery’s Oktoberfest was named as the 33rd best beer of 2018. The old-world brewery was the only Denver-based brewery to grace the list, which includes domestic and international breweries.

“From the day we opened our doors, our goal has been to bring our family’s old-world recipes to craft beer drinkers and non-craft beer drinkers alike,” said Seedstock Owner Ron Abbott. “It’s a honor to win two such high accolades for traditional German-style beers. We’re so very humbled and excited to continue to share our recipes with the world.”

In celebration of the honor, Seedstock Brewery will be re-releasing the Dusseldorf Alt on Jan. 25. At 5.0-percent ABV, this German-style beer has a clean, malty aroma with a very slight hint of fruitiness. It is assertive in its hop bitterness and balanced by a clean, bready malt character. The long-lasting, dry finish makes it a very sessionable beer.

According to Beer Connessiour’s Michael Bury review of the Dusseldorf Alt, “It’s a shame that currently you can only get the beer in the immediate Colorado area. However, this supports the notion of patronizing your local brewery, and anyone in the Denver area would be more than satisfied by a visit."

Seedstock’s Oktoberfest is a traditional Marzen-style that has been served at Oktoberfest celebrations since 1872. The Seedstock Oktoberfest is a malty, amber German-style lager with a rich, toasty and bready flavor. It has a soft bitterness and a clean, dry finish with a 6.1-percent ABV.

Seedstock’s Dusseldorf Atl scored a 97 from reviewers and the Oktoberfest scored a 95. A review of 100-96 is considered “World Class” and 95-91 is considered “Exceptional.”

Maxline Brewing Debuts New Canning Line and Barrel-Aging Space

FORT COLLINS, Colo. - December 12, 2018 - Maxline Brewing will begin limited distribution into Northern Colorado in January. During this time, beer lovers will be able to enjoy flagship favorite Irish Red, with other favorites such as Peach Mango Pale Ale and IPA beginning distribution in coming months, in 12-oz cans outside the family-owned brewery’s taproom.

“Canning is a natural extension of our business,” said Maxline co-owner Kevin Gearhardt. “Not only does it give our taproom guests the ability to take home our beer and share with family and friends, but it gives us an incredible opportunity to distribute local favorites like Irish Red within Northern Colorado.”

Maxline Brewing will be donating four cents from each 12-ounce can sold to a local charity. Cans sold in the taproom will be given to a Fort Collins charity. Once distribution begins, Maxline Brewing will select a charity in each respective distribution location. Charity information will be listed on Maxline Brewing’s website.

Last spring Maxline Brewing more than doubled its square footage by adding private event space and expanding its taproom and brewhouse to include additional fermentation tanks, lab equipment, a canning line and barrel-aging space. The brewery’s new barrel-aging program will allow for up to 24 barrels, paving the way for more experimental beers in the realm of spirits.

“Barrel aging gives us one more ingredient to play with: wood,” said Maxline brewer Shawn Woodbury. “We want to not only push the flavor profiles of our existing brands to new levels of complexity, but we also want to experiment with both ‘clean’ and ‘funky’ barrels to provide exclusive barrel-only releases designed to highlight the individual character of these barrels.”

The first beer to be released out of the brewery’s barrel-aging program will be Rum Barrel-Aged Winter Warmer, a spiced American Amber with cinnamon, clove, allspice and ginger. The brewery aged the 2017 edition of its Winter Warmer in a rum barrel from Coppermuse Distillery for one year. At 7.5 percent ABV, the result is an enhanced spiciness that complements smooth vanilla and dark sugar notes from the barrel.

Additional information, including where Maxline brands will be distributed, will be shared at a later time.


About Maxline Brewing
Fostering craft, community, and culture, Maxline Brewing is a neighborhood brewery located in Fort Collins, Colorado. Maxline’s commitment to quality malt, hops, water, and yeast mirrors the brewery’s passion for unique and rich craft beers.

Pablo’s Coffee Brings Home Four Medals at World’s Largest Roasters Competition

Pablo’s Coffee took home four medals at the largest global roasters competition, Golden Bean North America, in Portland, Oregon from Sept. 19-22. This is the first year that Pablo’s Coffee has entered the competition, which celebrated its fourth anniversary last month.

“The same weekend that other Colorado small businesses were being put on the map at Great American Beer Festival, we were establishing ourselves as a world-class roaster,” said Pablo’s Coffee owner Craig Conner. “These wins validate our roasting style and philosophy, which is to develop sweet, full body and balance throughout the roasting process.”

Pablo’s Coffee took home the following medals:

“I’m particularly proud of the honey processed coffees’ medals, as they were very challenging to develop a roast profile. The end result mitigated some the inherent faults in the green coffee while showing off the positive attributes,” said Pablo’s Coffee head roaster Brian Gerhard. “It took quite a bit of R&D to develop the roast curves and recipes.”

Pablo’s Espresso Blend is still available to purchase online and in stores. View the full list of Golden Bean North America winners here. The competition received more than 900 coffee submissions from more than 500 roasters.

Seedstock Brewery Releases Two New Czech-Style Lagers and Farmhouse Saison

DENVER – Oct. 18, 2018 – With the arrival of fall in Denver comes three new beers from Denver-based Seedstock Brewery that inspire drinkers to cozy up and embrace colder season flavors. Seedstock’s Bohemian Dunkel and Old Prague will be released Oct. 26, while Farmhouse Saison will be released Oct. 22.

Seedstock’s Bohemian Dunkel is a Czech-style dark lager, inspired by the Bohemian Dunkel at Prague's U Fleku brew pub. This dark lager at 5.5-percent ABV has a great mouth feel, finishing crisp and clean. Old Prague is a Czech-style beer that was popular in Prague in the early 1800s. It's a pre-lager beer light in color with a full body and smooth mouthfeel at 6.6-percent ABV. Old Prague has an earthy bitterness that results from a generous amount of Czech Saaz hops.

Seedstock's Farmhouse Saison is rich with apricot and floral aromas with tinges of pepper spiciness. The 7.8-percent ABV beer has a dry, crisp and refreshing finish.

“We’re always working to expose people to old-world recipes that aren’t nearly as prevalent as they used to be, which is a shame” said Seedstock Owner Ron Abbott. “We want to ensure Czech-style lagers and farmhouse saison recipes continue to be players in the craft beer industry.”

Call to Arms Brewing Releases Really Really Ridiculously Good Tasting on November 1

DENVER - Oct. 15, 2018 - Call to Arms Brewing Company will tap and release Really Really Ridiculously Good Tasting, a farmhouse ale aged in Chardonnay barrels with Brett Claussennii, on November 1 at 3 p.m. in their taproom (4526 Tennyson St, Denver, Colorado 80212). With naming inspired by the movie Zoolander, Really Really Ridiculously Good Tasting is a well-rounded beer with notes of cantaloupe, white grape, lemon zest and a smooth vanilla finish

Bottle conditioning, a method that stems from the 1700s, is the process of naturally carbonating beer through the re-fermentation of sugars after bottling. Sugar is added to the finished beer before packaging, allowing for the yeast to consume the sugar and create carbonation.

“It’s a blend of old school tradition with our modern day-to-day brewing techniques,” said Chris Bell of Call to Arms. “You’re adding 100 percent fermentable sugar to a beverage that is going to condition warm. If there is anything else in the bottle it will also grow, so you have to be extremely careful and intentional throughout the process.”

At 7.2 percent ABV (alcohol by volume), Really Really Ridiculously Good Tasting begins with primary fermentation using a traditional French Saison yeast, followed by an addition of Brett Claussennii to produce a slight barnyard funk. The beer is then packaged with champagne yeast and bottle conditioned, which results in a farmhouse ale reminiscent of a delicate Sauvignon Blanc aged in oak.

This limited quantity sour will be available in 375 ml bottles and on draft at the brewery starting on Nov. 1. Only 200 bottles will be released with a purchasing limit of two bottles per person. Bottles will retail for $11.

“The wild yeast and other bugs in this bottle will produce complex flavors throughout the bottle conditioning process,” said Bell. “We’re extremely proud of this beer.”

About Call to Arms Brewing
Founded in 2015, Call to Arms Brewing Company is located in the Berkeley neighborhood of northwest Denver, Colorado. Blending tradition with innovation, the brewery is a gathering place passionately committed to quality, community, and camaraderie. For more information visit calltoarmsbrewing.com.

DENVER - Oct. 9, 2018 - Brewers from Colorado and across the globe will come together on March 16 for the sixth annual Collaboration Fest at the Hyatt Regency Denver Colorado Convention Center (650 15th St, Denver, CO 80202).

Last year, Collaboration Fest produced over 120 beer collaborations from more than 200 breweries from 42 states and six countries.

Colorado Brewers Guild members team up with breweries from near and far and let their imaginations run wild, allowing each brewery to choose who they want to work with, what style of beer they want to brew and what ingredients they want to include.

“Over the years, we've sought out venues for Collaboration Fest that would allow us to grow at a comfortable pace,” said Tobias Krause of Two Parts. “Last year's Collaboration Fest at the Hyatt proved to be the best one yet, and we couldn't be more excited about having the Hyatt back in the picture for 2019.”

Tickets will be available for purchase to the general public in November 2018 at CollaborationFest.com.

Great Divide Brewing Releases Fall and Holiday Seasonals

DENVER - September 25, 2018 - This month Great Divide Brewing Company releases Chai Yeti and Fresh Hop Pale Ale, while seasonal favorites Hibernation Ale, Barrel Aged Yeti and the Pack of Yetis will return in the coming months for the fall and winter seasons.

The Himalayan-inspired Chai Yeti, at 9.5 percent ABV, comes back for a second year to delight taste buds. Traditional Chai spices of cinnamon, green cardamom, black pepper, ginger, nutmeg, and vanilla blend seamlessly with Yeti’s rich, roasted malt backbone for a spicy beast fit to tackle Everest. This limited release is available September - December in 22-oz bottles at both Great Divide locations as well as within the brewery’s distribution footprint.

“Chai Yeti pays homage to the birthplace of the Yeti mythology,” said Brian Dunn of Great Divide. “You’ll notice that the chai spices really come through making it the perfect winter warmer for the colder months ahead.”

Featuring all Colorado ingredients, Fresh Hop is a labor of love meant to be enjoyed immediately. Brewed with wet, whole cone Cascade hops from Colorado’s own High Wire Hop farm, this pale ale uses malt locally sourced from Proximity Malt in Monte Vista, and yeast from the Brewing Science Institute near Colorado Springs. Savor this Fresh Hop pale ale, ripe with grassy, citrus hop brilliance, during harvest season as soon as you can. This seasonal is available September - November in 6-pack cans and on draft at both Great Divide locations as well as within the brewery’s distribution footprint, and comes in at 6.1 percent ABV

Hibernation Ale, an English-style old ale, has been Great Divide’s celebrated winter tradition since 1995. This robust, dry-hopped ale has a malty richness balanced with a complex hop profile and hearty, warming character. This seasonal is available October - December in 6-pack cans and draft at both Great Divide locations as well as within the brewery’s distribution footprint, and comes in at 8.7 percent ABV.

Barrel Aged Yeti, the brewery’s unique version of its monstrous Yeti Imperial Stout is aged for at least 12 months in whiskey barrels and comes in at 12.5 percent ABV. The spirited aging process produces a hugely complex, but mellowed Yeti, with its signature roasted flavors, hints of vanilla and oak, and a whiskeyed finish. This seasonal Yeti is available November - December in 12-oz bottles at both Great Divide locations as well as within the brewery’s distribution footprint.

The Pack of Yetis, a perfect gift for any Yeti enthusiast, will be available October - December. Every pack contains three unique beasts which can be any combination of Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti, Vanilla Oak Aged Yeti or Chai Yeti and includes a Yeti carabiner mug. Packs are available for purchase at both Great Divide locations and wherever Great Divide is distributed

“This mixed pack features the best of the best, a trifecta of Yeti, making it the perfect hostess or holiday gift to pair with dinner,” said Dunn.
