Hello Fall...

Fall showed it's head in a big fucking way here in Colorado. A year's worth of precipitation in a week, devastating floods, enormous damage, and already inches of snowfall in the high country; way too early for those affected to even have a chance at getting back to their homes to assess the damage. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Football is here, we have made several batches of red and green chili already, and we are considering long sleeves and pants - though probably gonna delay that as long as possible. Fall is incredible in Colorado. The aspens shine like gold on frost-covered mountains, morning air turns crisp, and the wind whispers sweetly "enjoy but get ready."

I am a born and raised Colorado boy - and even though the Farmer's Almanac isn't mirroring my instincts, I feel a big, long, wet winter heading our way. I've been wrong before, and I'll be wrong again; but I am ready to drink porters and stouts [including red versions] and enjoy some steep, deep powder! I'm not rushing it; the shoulder seasons are my absolute favorite, I just know how quickly it can all change around here. Fall is for relaxation, contemplation, and final preparation; get yourself a good book and make a big pot of coffee. Come by the brewery and see what is new. Sit on the patio and enjoy a beer in the best season to do so. Enjoy it and embrace it! Cheers and great beers!
