Obscure Sojourns: A Barrel's Story

Join Obscure Sojourns for a tasting tour of oaks and alternative wood species. They will dive into the barrel-aging process by comparing (drinking) a variety of unique wood aged products while becoming intimately familiar with the nuances that define the legendary American Oak barrel. We will discuss the history, science, and the essential ingredient: magnificent trees.

ABOUT DAVID MONAHAN

Dr. David Monahan - engineer, distiller, cooper and serial entrepreneur - has a knack for challenging conventional thought. He opened (and sold) the first distillery in Fort Collins and recently founded Squarrel Square Barrels- the first sustainable, customizable and keg-able Oak barrel. Blending analytical sciences with the profound art of craft beverage making, Monahan now lives by a simple philosophy: honor thy oak.

WHY Goats?


Yoga can be healing. Animals are therapeutic. Giving back feels good. Laughter is great medicine.

Why Mountain Flower?


Your ticket purchase is more than yoga. more than goats. more than beer. It is helping support a local, small Non-Profit, Mountain Flower Goat Dairy, whose mission is to teach the community to practice land stewardship, humane treatment of animals & conservation through urban agriculture, education and advocacy.

At Mountain Flower Goat Dairy, they connect urban residents back to the land, back to their food and back to nature by providing access to sustainable agriculture, farm education and humane dairy production.

Mountain Flower's goats are all bottle fed which means they are super friendly with humans often found snuggled up near you while you are in child's pose! Their breathing pattern is relaxing. Their warmth therapeutic. Their antics will leave you smiling for days!




Come for the goat yoga and stay for a beer!

Slushes, Slushies, and Hazy IPAs
Apr
27
to Apr 29

Slushes, Slushies, and Hazy IPAs

Wiley Roots Brewing Company is releasing five new beers!

Mass Communication Hazy IPA, Lime Slush, Lemon Slush, and Raspberry-Lemonade Slush will be available onsite and to-go on Friday, April 27, 2018 at 12pm with frozen Lemon-Lime Slush available for on-site consumption only.

Yeah, read that again. Slush slushies!

Slush is our heavily fruited rotating sour series inspired by everyone’s favorite summer drink hanging out at the local drive-in. Slush variants are divided by either lemon or lime base beers with additional fruits added, creating a nostalgic flashback to adding a shot of fruit flavor to your summer slushy. But unlike the drive-in, we only use whole fruit puree with no artificial flavors or colors. Slushes are easy drinking and refreshing at 4.6% ABV.

Mass Communication is our newest tropical and juicy New England style IPA brewed with 4 lbs per barrel of Mosaic and El Dorado hops. Mass Communication joins Rapid Transit, a pale ale brewed with Amarillo and Lemondrop Hops, as part of our new Hopadoxical series that focuses on combining rotating tropical hops with a balanced and approachable base beer to showcase the floral, fruity, and citrus character of each hop. The hops are added late in the brewing process, during whirlpool, and then heavily dry hopped during fermentation. Notes of strong citrus, juicy pineapple, and fresh mango. The Hopadoxical series is so named for our whimsical use of familiar names with juxtaposed imagery, much like the underlying styles embodied by these brands. Mass Communication is crushable at 7.2% ABV. 
_________________________________________________________

Lime Slush, Lemon Slush, and Raspberry-Lemonade Slush will be available to-go in 16oz cans for $16 per 4-pack, one case per variant per person limit, and on draft for $6.50 per 12oz. Mass Communication will be available in 16oz cans to-go for $18 per 4-pack, one case per person limit, and on draft for $8 per 16oz.

Lemon-Lime Slush slushies will be available while supplies last for $6.50 per 12oz. We rented a slushy machine to use for three days, but don't expect the slushy beer to last through the weekend. Get here early if you want one.

The House that Beer Built presented by Habitat for Humanity

The House that Beer Built is back by popular demand! In 2017, Habitat Metro Denver  launched this partnership with 21 Metro Denver Breweries. The mission was to bring the collaborative spirit of the craft brewery community together to build something great: to craft a home and build hope for a local family in need! The partnership was so successful, raising just over $50,000 to support one local family.

2018 is going to be another great year for the House that Beer Built partnership with a fresh lineup of 31 breweries! There will be events and promotions happening May through September. Stay tuned for event details and festival tickets coming soon!

Something to SAVOR

Premier Craft Beer and Food Pairing Event Returns with More Beer and More Breweries than Ever 

What: Returning to Washington D.C., SAVORSM: An American Craft Beer & Food Experience will unite craft beer lovers and independent brewers this June for the 11th year. Presented by the Brewers Association (BA), SAVOR is hailed as the premier craft beer and food pairing event in the U.S., serving up a selection of small bites perfectly paired with craft beer from independent breweries around the country. 

This year’s list of participating breweries is larger than ever, with 90 small and independent craft brewers set to serve a diverse range of over 180 beerspoured by the visionaries behind the brands. Delight your senses, discover new tastes and learn about beer and food pairing under the soaring columns of the historic National Building Museum.  

When: Friday, June 1 and Saturday, June 2, 2018 7:30 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. ET

Where: National Building Museum 401 F Street NW  Washington, D.C. 20001

Who: Ninety small and independent craft brewers—60 percent of which were not present at last year’s event, and 36 percent of which are first-time participants—will be serving 180 varieties of craft beer, representing 32 states and Washington D.C. A mouth-watering selection of small plates to pair with your beer will be prepared by Chef Adam Dulye, Brewers Association executive chef and author of newly released The Beer Pantry.

Why: Craft beer aficionados know that independently brewed beer is designed to dazzle their taste buds – especially when paired with the perfect small plate. As the world of beer becomes increasingly flavorful, there has been a surge of interest in how that can complement the culinary sphere. SAVOR celebrates the delectable harmony between craft beer and cuisine.

Ticket Info: Member Presale: Tuesday, March 20, 2018                           

Public Ticket Sale: Wednesday, March 21, 2018 

SAVOR tickets include:

      • Craft beer and small-plate pairings: thoughtfully paired to illustrate how well beer and food complement one another
      • Meet and talk with the owners/brewers of the breweries participating in the event
      • Event program with room for tasting notes
      • Unlimited non-alcoholic beverages
      • Commemorative tasting glass

Extras: Collaboration Beer: Crux Fermentation Project of Bend, Oregon, and Port City Brewing Company of Alexandria, Virginia, join forces this year to create a beer that showcases each of their strengths while paying homage to their shared oenological roots. Their creation, Brett de Vinum, uses a higher gravity version of Port City's flagship wit as the foundation, crushed Pinot Noir and Viognier grapes and red wine barrels with Crux’s house strains of Brettanomyces, for the ultimate collaboration. Each SAVOR attendee will receive a bottle of this special beer as an exit gift.  

 

Purveyors and Producers: Specialty food stations at SAVOR 2018 will feature vendors serving up bites that can be paired with craft beer on the second-floor balcony of the National Building Museum. This year’s producers include: 

·         Nathan Miller Chocolate, which will make and procure all chocolate selections;

Of course, we like to do all this while tossing back a few cold beers and bourbon.” OH Bacon…Be there!

Movie at the Symphony: JAWS IN CONCERT

Movie at the Symphony: JAWS IN CONCERT

Based on the best-selling novel by Peter Benchley and directed by Steven Spielberg, this masterpiece of suspense tells the tale of a small, New England seaside community terrorized by a predatory great white shark during the busiest weekend of the tourist season—the 4th of July. After several local residents are killed in the waters just off shore, it falls to three unlikely heroes – police chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider), marine scientist Matt Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) and surly local sea captain Quint (Robert Shaw) – to hunt down and kill the beast before more lives are lost.

Despite a notoriously difficult ocean shoot with constant technical challenges, Jaws became the most successful movie of all time (until the release of Star Wars two years later), and Spielberg has often credited John Williams' iconic score with much of the film's success. Now for the first time, audiences will have the chance to experience the power of a live symphony orchestra performing the entire score in sync with one of the greatest motion pictures of all time.

Colorado Symphony Presents: Yo-Yo Ma performing Bach at Red Rocks*

Colorado Symphony Presents: Yo-Yo Ma performing Bach at Red Rocks*

World-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma will perform at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, the first stop in a two-year journey that will bring Bach's complete solo cello suites to a limited number of locations on six continents. It is a journey motivated not only by the music’s significance in his life — it is among the very first he ever played — but also by Bach’s ability to speak universally. 

Yo-Yo Ma believes that at a moment when our world is challenged by the pace of change and the strain it can create, audiences will find shared meaning in this music. Indeed, writing in the New Yorker in December, Alex Ross described Yo-Yo Ma’s performance of the suites at the Hollywood Bowl as "The loveliest experience of my listening year … it was as if music had stilled the world.”

*Please Note: This performance does not include members of the Colorado Symphony and is a standalone showcase featuring Mr. Ma; presented by the Colorado Symphony Association.

Calling all beer enthusiasts, nerds, and aficionados! This workshop is designed specifically with you in mind. This is a unique opportunity for you to learn from a bonafide expert, improve your palate, and begin your journey into sensory analysis in the world of craft beer.

In this two-hour workshop, Melissa Antone will cover six important off flavors (the "Cicerone 6") that are commonly found in beer and represent when something has gone wrong.

After 5 years and many roles with Iron Hill, she relocated to Colorado and joined the Quality Assurance Department at Avery Brewing Company where she developed and managed their sensory program. She later moved on to join Cara Technology Ltd and AROXA®, where she provided support and training in sensory to American craft brewers. Currently with Kathinka Labs, Mel specializes in all things related to Quality Assurance, assisting brewers by utilizing both sensory evaluation and lab analysis as effective tools to achieve their goals . She considers herself an ambassador for quality beer within her community and enjoys sharing her knowledge of brewing science, best practices, and flavor chemistry.

Assimilation Bottle Release

Assimilation Bottle Release

Amalgam Brewing and Cellar West Artisan Ales invite you to our North Boulder Tasting Room on Saturday, April 7th for the release of Assimilation in limited 750mL. bottles and on draft. Assimilation is a Saison thoughtfully blended with some of the finest barrels from the Cellar West and Amalgam stock. Composed of 75% this year's batch of Westfield, Cellar West's oak aged Saison, then 20% Freeform, a solera-style Golden Sour from Amalgam, as well as 5% their Apricot Sour, Assimilation evolves across the palate as it expresses soft oak elements, a spritzy acidity, undeniable juicy stone fruit character, a full & frothy mouthfeel, and pleasantly dry finish. Incredibly complex and gratifying, we forged this delightfully flavorful beer into a modest 6% ABV. package.

We have 200 bottles available, $20 ea. (tax incl.) and are enforcing a 4/person limit. Amalgam will also be setting up a gypsy bottle shop in our space and will be offering bottles (on-premise or to-go) of their Ascension, Composition #1, Composition #2 (Backyard Peach), and Composition #2 (Plum Mix); prices vary.

Hetti Spaghetti will also be on site at 1pm slinging their unique, gourmet pastas.
