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 - 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.

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.

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.
