Blended from different vintages and a touch of other bold beers, Barrel-Aged Sin Tax becomes a more complex offering with notes of toasted marshmallow, chocolate, and graham crackers, akin to an adult version of a S'more.
Odell's newest IPA, Rupture, will bring the freshest hops possible. Odell has made its own unique machine for grinding fresh, whole hops to create a unique fresh hop process. They state "grinding the whole hop [they] 'rupture' the lupulin inside – releasing the oils that give the beer its flavor." Rupture certainly tastes extremely fresh; it is vibrant, well rounded, and has a subtle bitterness.
There truly are layers to this: sour triple ales, oak wine barrel brewing and a balance of flavors from regionally sourced lemons and marionberries.

A pasilla chili filled with mexican chocolate sherbet. The pasilla chili can be very mild or super spicy, yet you can’t tell until you try! This inspired the 12% Imperial Stout, brewed with the very same pasilla chili. Following the mysterious quality of that chili, 25% of the cans produced feature an extra spicy intensity! In house at Jackie O's.
Left Hand's Saison line up is solid to say the least. This earthy classic draws its flavors from locally sourced Colorado Juniper berries. Go ahead, let the name entice you; this farmstyle saison presents with a light to medium body, a dry and crisp earthiness with just the right amount of tart from the Juniper berries. At 6.8% this seasonal release is an excellent cool fall afternoon beer.
Le Gardien is an ale with slightly sweet, yet balanced maltiness and a subtle hint of pear, making it the perfect late summer sipper. Fulton & Wood Series Beer.
Each September, Oskar Blues releases this perinneal heavy weight. Ten Fidy packs a smooth chocolate-covered caramel and coffee punch blanketed by sweet and roasty malty backbone that pushes ones taste buds to the ropes.

Loosely based on a previous Smokestack Series Limited Release, Whiskey Barrel Stout's malt base is robust. To balance its chewy, complex malt presence, Whiskey Barrel Stout is hopped with Magnum and Columbus hops to provide just enough bitterness to prevent the beer from presenting as cloyingly sweet. Following fermentation with our house Scottish yeast strain that contributes notes of dates and plum, Whiskey Barrel Stout is transferred to freshly emptied whiskey barrels from a variety of our favorite distillers.
