Upcoming Album Covers...

...these are the Album Covers for the website. It's been a long time in the making, but when you are like us and doing every single thing in the house, by hand, shit just takes time. Now to get the tracks all done. 

Fall In Denver, CO

Honestly, we have it pretty good here. Every now and then we get a little moisture. Every, oh....500 years or so we get the kind of moisture that we saw in mid Sept. It was devastating for many. It was incredible. It made me want to brew beer. Beer with body. Beer with depth. Beer that satisfies in the middle of the winter. Because that is what is coming. A big winter is my prediction. Filled with delicious beer. Emotion-driven beer. Beer de terroir.

Country Malt Group | Black Shirt Collaboration | Sticke Altbier

A while back, our Country Malt Group rep Toby came to us with an offer that seemed, still does, surreal. "Hey, if we give you any quantity of malt and hops you want, even some that are extremely rare and fairly experimental, would you brew us a beer to showcase during the 2013 Great American Beer Festival?" Oh hell yes we would! And we have. After much research, time, effort, we are proud to offer our Sticke Altbier to the world. Come get a taste Thursday, Oct 10th.
