Last year we introduced our Slush series as a fun summer seasonal that spoofed America’s favorite drive-in. We even kicked off the series with a few Slush commercials (bit.ly/wileyslush), replicating some of our favorite Sonic classics. It was our goal to communicate that sour beer is suppose to be fun and introduce mildly-acidic sours to new fans.
At Wiley Roots, we brew beer for people that are a bit different, that enjoy the weird, and surround themselves with the odd. We believe in the extraordinary and the unusual, the experimental and the unique, and the “this shouldn't work but does”. Slush is a perfect example of what we believe, because it has no limits for our creativity. While we make some barrel aged sours and spontaneous sours that take a lot of time, we wanted to create a sour beer series for everyone that wasn’t so damn serious. Last year we accomplished our goal. This year, we are taking things to the “next level”.
That is why we are proud to announce the return of Slush and introduce a brand new Tiki Sour IPA series: Boat Drinks!
Starting April 12, 2019 at 12pm, we're kicking off our Summer-of-Slush with the inaugural Weekend Slush Party on the patio, complete with on-site only variants, to-go variants, TWO frozen slushy machines, patio activities, and a special food menu.
Slush is our summer rotational, fruited sour series, featuring flavors inspired by our favorite drive-in drinks. We start with our kettle soured golden ale, then add a touch of creative fruit and adjuncts, to create unique flavor combinations, delivering a refreshing drink with a mildly acidic base. To kick off the season, we will be releasing Purple Slush, Blue Slush, Raspberry Limeade Slush, Double Cherry Limeade Slush, Slusholada, Slusharita, and Real Dill Slush.
Boat Drinks is our new Milkshake Sour IPA series. Since the weather is getting nicer, we’ve decided to take our Sour IPA game in a new direction inspired by classic Tiki cocktails. This new series of beers showcases tropical fruits and spices, alongside a juicy and tart New England Style IPA base beer. Deck Shoes is our first release in the series, recreating the classic Mai Tai with puréed mandarin oranges and pineapples, toasted coconut, and a touch of pureed sweet cherries.
Weekend Slush Party starts on Friday, April 12, 2019 at 12pm and ends on Sunday, April 14, 2019 at 8pm. We will be allocating kegs to last the entire weekend, but all cans to-go are first come, first served starting Friday, April 12, 2019 at 12pm.

About the Beer Here! Exhibit
Beer Here! will feature authentic artifacts from Colorado’s beer and brewing history, connecting time periods. Some of the most compelling objects include the following:
· A Denver brewer’s union card from 1888, written entirely in German, because that is who was making beer at the time;
· Adolph Coors’ original hand-drawn sketch of his first beer label, on loan from the Coors archive;
· A massive wooden bottle smasher used by the Denver Police Department during Prohibition;
· Beer-brewing equipment from then to now;
· The nation’s first recyclable aluminum beer cans, pioneered by Coors;
· The flyer for the very first Great American Beer Festival in 1982;
· Some of New Belgium’s original brewing equipment; and
· Other artifacts from Colorado’s hoppy history.
In five sections, the exhibit explores topics such as 1) where immigrants planted mining towns during the Gold Rush; 2) how Colorado became the industrial hub of the Rocky Mountain West; 3) why the state went dry four years before national Prohibition; 4) what Coors Brewing Company and Ball Corporation contributed to Colorado’s economy and culture; and 5) when the connection grew between the rising outdoor recreation and brewing industries.
Also, museum visitors will be able to see and smell the ingredients Coors uses to make its beer, inside the exhibit and outside in the “beer ingredient garden.” Since beer is not allowed inside the gallery, in order to protect some rare and important artifacts, the museum’s café will feature a flight of four beers that represent different time periods. Tasting notes and additional historical information about the beers will come with the flight.
Sommeliers Choice Awards is an international wine competition within the United States that will be judged entirely by sommeliers only. The competition will focus exclusively on the needs of on premise establishments such as bars, restaurants, lounges and clubs, making this competition fundamentally different from any other wine competition within the U.S.
The goal of the Sommeliers Choice Awards is simple: to provide experienced on premise buyers and sommeliers a valuable benchmark for understanding which wines would make a compelling addition to a wine list.
Medals will be awarded to those wines that meet very specific judging criteria, with a goal of identifying wines that should become additions to restaurant wine lists. Wines will be judged according to criteria such as how well they pair with food items in addition to their overall versatility. Highest marks will be awarded to wines that provide value for money at their respective price points. Judges know the trade prices of each wine as they are judging each flight. Hence the winning wines would be the one that would score the highest for its quality, typicity, value, and packaging.

Silver – 80-89 points

The first day of summer and greeting the sun at its zenith for the year. It all begins at dawn on June 21. At solstice solar noon on Friday, we'll ring the titanium bell, the huge nose cone of an Apollo mission oxygen tank, which produces a deep, resonant roar, multiplied over and over in The TANK's powerful reverb.
On Friday at sunset, experience When the Tank Swallows the Sun, a transporting and contemplative soundbath with Joshua Hill from 7:48 to 8:48 p.m. Joshua is a young musician, composer and violinist, whose film scores have appeared in several award-winning movies. For this soundbath, he'll play ambient drones and electro-acoustic violin.
Then for the Friday night concert at 8 p.m. , we present Mysteries of the Night, a fabulous and transcendental night time deep listening experience inside The TANK. A stellar lineup of experiences TANK musicians including James Marienthal, Lois LaFond, Tom Wasinger. Marienthal's album Alive Inside the Tank debuted last year, to much acclaim. Free admission.
The following morning we have a special version of our Open Saturday at the TANK, when anyone can sing, play or just bask in the mighty resonance, free of charge. We'll have short musical presentations on the hour.
Then on Saturday night, June 22, our festivities culminate in a concert with an awesome drummer and percussionist, William Winant, playing marimbas, drums, gongs, superballs and an array of found percussion instruments. Winant will bring the sonic splendor of The Tank to life. Winant has performed with some of the most innovative and creative musicians of our time, including John Cage, Iannis Xenakis, Keith Jarrett, Anthony Braxton, James Tenney, Frank Zappa, Cecil Taylor, George Lewis, Steve Reich and Musicians, Yo-Yo Ma, Frederic Rzewski, Ursula Oppens, Joan LaBarbara, Annea Lockwood, Joelle Leandre, Oingo Boingo, Mr. Bungle, Sonic Youth, and the Kronos String Quartet.

Admission to this concert is $75 for inside seating--a peak experience--and $10 for outside seating, where you can listen to the concert through our landscape speaker array under the stars. Purchase tickets here.
On Sunday, you can explore the gorgeous high desert country around Rangely. Take a tour of ancient Fremont rock art, visit nearby Dinosaur National Monument, or seek out the nearly mythical herds of wild mustangs in the wild lands southeast of Rangely (we recommend a four-wheel drive vehicle for this). Or swim in nearby Kinney Reservoir on the White River.
We close the festival at sunset on Sunday with a group bell ringing. We invite you to bring your own bell and help us raise a joyful noise in the deep reverberations of The TANK.
We hope you'll join us for this stunning, one-of-a-kind festival. You'll come away with a new sense of deep listening and a new reverence for the planet.
