Black Shirt Brewing’s Kitchen Now Open–and You Need to Go!

The Johnny: Red Ale Berkshire Sausage, shaved fennel, fennel fronds, fontina, BSB tomato sauce, whole roast garlic, & oregano

I’ve been a fan of Black Shirt Brewing since the beginning. Month after month I watched as its construction progressed, and I eagerly awaited the day the brewery would open its doors. Then, in October 2012, the day had come/arrived. As is easy to see from my original post from my first visit, I was head over heels for the beer. And 4 ½ years later, it’s still going strong—and even better than ever.

The Sue: Whole roast zucchini, fried egg, mixed herb salad, roasted walnuts, red grapes tossed with lemon herb vinaigrette

I was extremely excited last year when I heard about plans to open a kitchen that would serve food full-time in the taproom. Because not only do I love to drink local craft beer, I also enjoy pairing great food with it. Often when I’m trying to figure out where to grab a beer, food is a big consideration. In making the decision on where to go, I typically get online and look at each brewery’s website and/or social media pages to see if any of them have food trucks that particular day. Sometimes I can find that information, other times I can’t. And even if a truck is scheduled, there are many occasions where they are unable to make it for whatever reason.

Focaccia with saison-marinated olives

So I am thrilled that one of my favorite Denver breweries now has wonderful, quality food that is available whenever the taproom is open (note: orders are accepted up until one hour before closing). And it isn’t just random bar food; chef and restaurateur Bill Greenwood and Chef Matthew Kender have worked together to create dishes that incorporate BSB’s beer into the ingredients. The debut menu features three pizzas, three salads, desserts, and more options coming soon. And in the near future, Black Shirt will expand its menu to include additional specialty and seasonal pizzas as well as weekend brunch fare (YES!). I attended a media preview earlier this week and got to try appetizers, salads, and pizza. And wow—was I impressed. Everything I tried was amazing.

The Cash: Frontman IPA BBQ sauce, roasted chicken, taleggio cheese, mango, caramelized onions, fresh arugula

The Sue, pictured near the top of this post, is probably the most unique salad I’ve ever had, and definitely one of the most delicious. Whole roast zucchini, fried egg, mixed herb salad, roasted walnuts, red grapes, and lemon herb vinaigrette come together to make an outstanding combination of flavors that is unlike any salad I’ve eaten before. Other salads include The Folsom: Roasted chicken, avocado, egg, Tender Belly bacon, Maytag blue cheese, buttermilk ranch, iceberg lettuce, and marinated cherry tomatoes. And The Line: Chimichurri flank steak, creamy Dijon dressing, roasted red onions, charred corn, cotija cheese, sweet gem, and red sorrel greens. Yum!

The Carter: Roma tomatoes, mozzarella, extra virgin olive oil, and fresh basil

The pizzas are made with house-made malt flour and spent grain, creating the perfect crust. I had The Carter (pictured above), Black Shirt’s version of a margherita pie. It had just the right touch of garlic flavor and plenty of fresh basil. This one will be a favorite with vegetarians especially. While the menu states that substitutions or additions are not permitted, they are kind enough to omit ingredients due to dietary or food allergies. That’s excellent news for vegetarians like me, as I can still choose from any of the pizzas with a simple request to hold the meat. I haven’t yet tried the two other pizzas pictured in this post—which look incredible!—but I’m very much looking forward to ordering them sans meat during my next visit.

Looking for a beer to go with your salad or pizza? Choose your favorite, or look to the food menu to check out the suggested pairing. I love it when a restaurant/brewery provides an option they feel works well with a dish. Depending on my mood, I may go with it or I might decide on something completely different. There are no wrong answers when it comes to personal taste.

Black Shirt Brewing’s kitchen is open Sunday-Thursday from 11 a.m.-9 p.m., and Friday-Saturday from 11 a.m.-11 p.m. I suggest you get there as soon as you can; you won’t regret it, and I’m sure you’ll be back for more.

Copper Kettle, Cholaca, & Nova Craft Chocolate Create the Perfect Partnership

Products from Nova Craft Chocolate, and a bottle of Snowed In Imperial Oatmeal Stout (brewed with Cholaca)

Beer and chocolate: two wonderful, individual things. But together, it can be a magical combination. Beer paired with chocolate? Yes, please. Beer brewed with Cholaca, pure 100% cacao? Amazing. Truffles made with hops and Cholaca? Phenomenal. Sound like something you want in your life? Yes! Well, if you haven’t heard of it before let me introduce you to Boulder-based company, Cholaca.

Cholaca pure liquid cacao and a taste of Copper Kettle’s Snowed In Imperial Oatmeal Stout (brewed with Cholaca)

Cholaca, pure, 100% cacao, was created to bring healthy, organic and regeneratively-farmed cacao to the world, while creating sustainable Fair Trade partnerships with farmers throughout the rain forests of Peru and Ecuador. Two Colorado companies, Copper Kettle Brewing Company and Nova Chocolate, are partnering with Cholaca to celebrate Earth Day (Saturday, April 22) and beyond, and a portion of the proceeds will go to regenerative cacao farmers through Yellow Seed, a conscious trade nonprofit that promotes equality, ecological conservation and community resilience in the cacao marketplace.

Delicious Hops Truffles by Nova Chocolate and Cholaca

Nova & Cholaca have always shared a vision of regeneratively-farmed cacao, so Hops Truffles was a natural pairing. Nova combines Cholaca’s Peruvian cacao with Amarillo Hops to give this truffle the citrus brightness beer lovers appreciate in brews made with Amarillo hops.
Hops Truffles are available for sale online. Or, to purchase locally, please visit any of these Colorado stores throughout the month of April:

Cheese & Provisions (Denver)

Cholaca began supplying its liquid cacao to craft brewers in Colorado in 2015, and then quickly expanded to supply breweries across the country. Cholaca grew sales by 300% in the beer segment from 2015 to 2016. In 2016, Cholaca sold over 3,600 gallons of pure liquid cacao to approximately 30 breweries. Of these, approximately a half-dozen of them are nationally distributed, including Breckenridge Brewery, Fort Collins Brewery, Great Divide Brewing Company, Oskar Blues, Tommyknocker Brewery and Troegs Independent Brewing.

Copper Kettle’s Mexican Chocolate Stout, brewed with Cholaca. One of my personal favorite beers!

Other Colorado breweries that have already used Cholaca include Big Choice Brewing, Coopersmiths Pub & Brewing, Copper Kettle Brewing Company, Crazy Mountain Brewing Company, FATE Brewing Company, Shine Brewing Co, and Zwei Brewing.

Jeremy Gobien, Owner and Head Brewer at Copper Kettle

As part of their commitment to supporting a healthy planet, Copper Kettle is excited to be making their GABF gold medal winning-Mexican Chocolate Stout now with Cholaca. They are also celebrating their 6-year anniversary throughout Earth Day weekend, which will include 50% of all Mexican Chocolate Stout sales on Earth Day being donated to Yellow Seed. 
On Sunday, April 23, Copper Kettle will be releasing a very special version of its famous Snowed In Imperial Oatmeal Stout, aged on Maple Syrup. Cholaca will be working with the on-site food truck to bring you a delicious brunch menu of chocolate eats to pair with this amazing ale. Check out the schedule of events for all the information on Copper Kettle’s 6th Anniversary Bash. Be sure to stop by for a Mexican Chocolate Stout and the special version of Snowed In, both brewed with Cholaca. And definitely don’t forget to pair the beers with a couple of Hops Truffles!

The First Two (of Six) Beers from Odell’s Cellar Series Are Here!

Photo courtesy of Odell Brewing

I love special releases! Especially from my favorite breweries.

In March, Odell released the first two of its six 2017 Cellar Series releases, each available for a limited time. Here is all the information you need:

WHO: Odell Brewing
WHAT: Barrel Aged Mountain Standard Double Black IPA (10.6% ABV), the first of six beers in Odell’s 2017 Cellar Series releases
WHEN: Released March 20, 2017
WHERE: Available in very limited quantities as a single 12oz bottle across Odell’s 14-state distribution footprint
ABOUT: In the fall of 2015 Odell took a small batch of their most popular seasonal releases, Mountain Standard Double Black IPA, and locked it away in their cellar. This Mountain Standard has been aging in bourbon barrels for over a year and has now been released as the first batch of Barrel Aged Mountain Standard Double Black IPA.
“Barrels and time can yield some amazing changes to the character of a bold beer like Mountain Standard,” explains Head Brewer, Bill Beymer. “The oak has definitely performed some magic here. The assertive hop bitterness has made way for incredible flavors of sweet chocolate, dried figs, toffee, vanilla and caramel.”
MY THOUGHTS: Being barrel aged, this isn’t your typical IPA. The bourbon and oak notes temper the hoppiness found in the traditional version of Mountain Standard. I thought it was almost a bit more like a full-bodied porter than an IPA. Either way, if you can find this beer, be sure to grab one.

Cutest thing ever! (Photo courtesy of Odell Brewing)

WHO: Odell Brewing
WHAT: Flemish Giant (6.5% ABV), the second of six beers in Odell’s 2017 Cellar Series releases
WHEN: Released March 27, 2017
WHERE: Available for a limited time in 750ml bottles across Odell’s 14-state distribution footprint
ABOUT: Flemish Giant is a new 750ml single run barrel aged Flanders-Style Sour Red Ale. This beer begins with notes of tart ruby red grapefruit and cherry, finishing with sweet raisin and fig.
“At Odell Brewing, we often brew hop forward styles and this beer presented an opportunity to explore a malt forward profile that let the oak barrels take center stage,” said COO, Brendan McGivney. He added, “Blending is an important part of our process and we used about 60 different barrels to bring this beer together. Woodcut toasted oak barrels, Bourbon barrels, rum barrels, and chardonnay barrels all contribute different layers and depth to the final beer.”
The name Flemish Giant pays tribute to a curious breed of rabbit which can grow up to 20 lbs. Native to Belgium, the birthplace of the Flanders-Style Sour Red Ale, the Flemish Giant dates back to the 16th century.
MY THOUGHTS: This Flanders-Style Red is less sweet than many beers of this style which, in my opinion, makes it easier to drink. It has a fairly dry finish and is tart yet not markedly sour. It’s an overall quality Flanders Red, and I definitely recommend it.  Plus it gets bonus points from me for the rabbit reference!

Stay tuned for more of Odell’s Cellar Series Releases in the coming months!

Collaboration Fest: Cheers to Another Great Year!

On Saturday, March 25, hundreds of excited beer lovers attended the 4th Annual Collaboration Fest. Collaboration Fest is one of the most unique beer festivals in the country, as each beer is created specifically for this event. Not only that, but every beer was brewed collaboratively between two or more breweries, with some having as many as six different breweries contributing to a single beer.

Welcome!

Collaboration Fest started in 2014 at the Curtis Hotel in downtown Denver. After the inaugural event, word got around and it grew considerably over the next couple of years, moving into a larger space—Mile High Stadium—in both 2015 and 2016. This year it was held at the National Western Complex for the first time. And there is a reason it continues to gain popularity, as the beers seem to get better and better each year. 2017 featured over 100 special beer projects from nearly 200 breweries!

Casey James Prestwood & the Burning Angels. Best band I’ve ever heard at a beer fest!

As I looked over the pour list before the event, one thing that really struck me was the sheer ingenuity when it comes to ingredients. Here are just some of the interesting items used in this year’s collaborations: birch bark, gooseberries, pretzels, boysenberries, mushrooms, kelp, seaweed, elderflower, spruce, rose, gold, and even onion! (though unfortunately, the onion beer didn’t make it to the festival for reasons beyond the breweries’ control). Aside from ingredients and recipes, the utter creativity of ideas that went into these beers is impressive. Many had clever names (Intergalactichoptopia, Knackered Knickers, Wanna Be Stoutin’ Somethin’ and Japance Off, to name a few), and two beers were actually blessed by a father from a local church.

Enjoying the beer!

Last year, I wrote that 2016 Collaboration Fest had been the best one yet. Well, guess what? 2017 topped it! There were so many great beers this time around that I had a tough time narrowing down my list of favorites. I was ultimately able to come up with a list of seven beers I personally found to be outstanding.

My favorites from 2017: 

Caribbean Rum Cake Beer (CO-Brew and Southern Brewing and Winemaking)

Bianca Raspberry Wild Wild Brett (Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project and Omnipollo)

Paperback Writer Barrel Fermented Brett Stock Ale (Fiction Beer Company and Ursula Brewing Company)

German Chocolate Cake Stout (Living the Dream Brewing Company and Alter Brewing)

Rum Barrel-Aged English IPA (Mockery Brewing, Baere Brewing, Root Shoot Malts and Inland Island Yeast Co.)

Des Cousines Barrel Aged French Wild Ale (Beryl’s Beer Company and Goose Island)

Slow Death Whiskey Barrel Aged Dark Mixed Fermentation Culture Ale with cinnamon & lemon peel (TRVE Brewing and Burial Beer Co.)

Drinking the blessed beers! (From Joyride and Little Machine)

For those who missed out, or for those craving one or more of the beers at the fest, head to First Draft Taproom & Kitchen (1309 26th St, Denver) THIS Wednesday, March 29 at 5 pm for Collab Fest Tap Takeover, where you’ll find over 25 of the festival’s collaborations on tap.

Thanks to all the breweries who participated and shared their awesome collaborations with us! See you in 2018!

Get Ready for Four Limited Releases from Epic This Spring

It’s almost time! Get ready for four special, limited releases from Epic Brewing! Three Oak and Orchard beers are hitting the shelves in April with a new batch of Sour Brainless on Peaches coming out in May. See below for all the details, straight from Epic Brewing.

Oak and Orchard Syrah, Release No. 2 

This time around we went with a little less funk and a lot more fruit. We loaded one of our Napa Valley foeders with our sour saison and so much blueberry, boysenberry and black currant that it was practically bursting at the seams, resulting in a beer that explodes with huge, fruity, wine-like notes. Available starting the first week of April with a release in Salt Lake City on April 14. 8.5% ABV, 661 cases.

Oak and Orchard Dark Sour with Plum, Release No. 2

The second packaging of this trip to the dark side is finally being released beyond the breweries’ walls. This Dark Sour has spent most of it life brooding in retired whiskey barrels before being finished with plum puree. Aromas of dark fruit, plum and fig fade into faint notes of earthy funk. Hitting markets around the country the second week of April. 654 cases, 7.5% ABV.

Oak and Orchard Pinot, Release No. 2

This is the second release of this extremely limited sour. This sour saison was fruited to mimic Pinot Noir (with blueberry, boysenberry, cranberry strawberry, plum) and aged in oak for months until it reached the peak of puckering perfection. Available at the end of April. 650 cases, 8.5% ABV.

Sour Brainless on Peaches, Release No. 3

She smells like a peach, but packs a cruel, puckering punch! This is our most sour version of this beer yet, but it still retains beautiful notes of peach skin, citrus and a dose of barnyard funk. Available in the beginning of May. 800 cases, 7.5% ABV.

Say Hello to the “New” Ignite Kitchen + Cocktails

Ignite Kitchen + Cocktails (2124 Larimer St., Denver) got a makeover! Ignite, which has been in the Ballpark neighborhood for five years, recently decided to update its look as well as its food and drink menu. I stopped in for a sneak peek this week and got to check out the transformation. For those adverse to change, no need to worry: Ignite still offers plenty of burgers as well as its famous Man Candy! Man Candy, Ignite’s sugared bacon, has been a longtime favorite of its customers, who will be pleased to find that this tasty snack hasn’t gone anywhere.

Man Candy! And Guacamole with House Fried Chips

The updated food menu contains several wood-fired entrees including creole-seasoned Ruby Red Trout, served with patatas bravas, herb butter and vegetables; Wood-Roasted Steak with bacon and blue cheese creamed Brussels sprouts, red wine sauce and herb butter; and Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf, served with rosemary potatoes and fresh vegetables.

Arête Barleywine from Elevation Brewing with a piece of Wood-Fired Brie + Pear Flatbread

For those looking for lighter options, entrée bowls and salads have been added, such as a Sushi SaladTuna Poke Bowl and Roasted Brussels Sprouts & Arugula Salad. Additionally, there are now four delicious shareable wood-fired flatbreads from which to choose, and three of them are meatless—which is great news for vegetarians like myself.

Fig + Pig Wood-Fired Flatbread: Balsamic fig jam, manchego cheese, prosciutto, dressed arugula

Beer fans will be happy to see many local craft beers on tap from breweries like Boulder Beer, Lefthand Brewing, Odell, New Belgium, Great Divide, Dry Dock, and more. I went with Arête barleywine from Elevation Brewing, which was the rotating handle.

Of course I’m always up for a good local brew, but I love a nice cocktail too. Ignite now has several enticing cocktails for under $10. From classics like mules, margaritas and the Old Fashioned, you’ll also find exiciting new flavors such as the Cucumber + Rose: Hendrick’s Gin, St. Germain liqueur, cucumber, simple syrup, mint, lemon, Port of Call: Del Maguey Vida organic mezcal, Ruby port, fresh lime, agave syrup, Grand Marnier, and my favorite, Strawberry Jam: Weller’s Bourbon, limoncello, mint, house-made strawberry jam, soda.

Strawberry Jam cocktail with Ballpark Peanuts

During happy hour (3-6 pm daily), Ignite offers both $5 and $7 cocktails, plus $1 off all draft beers. Other weekly specials include: half off frozen drinks, wines by the glass, draft beer and flat breads every Monday and Wednesday starting at 8:30 p.m.; “Pitcher Perfect Tuesdays,” featuring $14 pitchers of select beers and sangria on the rooftop; and “Wine Down Sundays,” with half-priced wines by the bottle after 6 pm, with purchase of food.

Ahi Tuna Poke Bowl (GF): Marinated Ahi tuna, green onion, sesame, avocado, mango, pickled vegetable, steamed rice

The interior now has a more intimate feel, making it an excellent choice for date night. The new decor includes brass & capiz orb chandeliers, whitewashed brick, natural white-stone tabletops and reclaimed vintage pieces, including iron Spanish gates (pictured at the bottom of the staircase below) and leaded glass windows from the 19th century.

And last, but certainly not least, Ignite now has valet parking, available nightly for $7, a feature that is sure to be a welcome change in this growing neighborhood where parking can be a challenge, especially on game days.

Spanish gates from 1855

Check out Ignite Kitchen + Cocktails’ new look and be sure to try one of the many killer cocktails along with the chef’s latest creations.

A Beer With History: Seven Falls Prospector’s Pick

Earlier this year, a very special beer was brewed in Colorado. This beer was brewed by local Colorado Springs favorite and veteran-owned Red Leg Brewing Company in partnership with The Broadmoor’s food and beverage team: Seven Falls Prospector’s Pick Kölsch. This beer is special for a couple of reasons. The first is its historical significance in that it is inspired by the Colorado Gold Rush of 1858 and Colorado’s “grandest mile of scenery” at Seven Falls. It’s also especially exciting, as this is the first time in The Broadmoor‘s nearly 100 year history that it has worked with a brewery to create its own signature beer. 
Released in January, the brew is still available in cans and on draught at the resort and Red Leg’s taproom.
I had the chance to try this unique beer, and it is a prime example of a how a Kölsch should taste. Clean, crisp, easy drinking with a slightly dry finish. It’s great for any time of year, but its light body and low ABV (5.3%) make it really fitting for spring and summer sipping.
Be sure to stop by Red Leg Brewing and/or The Broadmoor to get a taste of this one of a kind beer!

Day of Dorks at Wynkoop

Last Saturday, March 4th, I attended the first ever Day of Dorks beer festival at Wynkoop Brewing. Day of Dorks was a fun celebration of beer—an event where beer nerds could geek out over all the righteous brews and chat with those who used their scientific know-how to create them. Some 30 local breweries were present (with one absent) to pour their geekiest beers for excited attendees.

Cheers! The guys from New Image Brewing with some happy festival goers

The brewery was decked out in dorkiness: taped spectacles, “beaker” tasting glasses, nerdy movies, and snacks such as Smarties, Dum Dums, and Nerds. And pool tables full of school supplies, for a very good cause. Day of Dorks held a supply drive to help out two Denver high-needs schools, Cheltenham Elementary and Dora Moore, K-8. So many people contributed! It was wonderful to see the piles continue to grow.

Supplies

Some (not all) of the school supplies collected at Day of Dorks

I sampled numerous tasty beers at Day of Dorks. There was a wide variety available; I tried some IPAs, stouts, mead, saisons, sours, doppelbocks, and more. Apparently I was in a “dark” mood that day, as all of my favorites were stouts!

***My top 3 picks from the fest***

Ginny Girl Stout from Beryl’s Beer Co, an 11.8% stout aged in gin barrels

Erin & James’ Breakfast Stout from Colorado Plus Brew Pub

Social Club Coffee Milk Stout from The Brew on Broadway (The BOB)

Day of Dorks was an awesome, entertaining way to spend an afternoon. Great beer, good people, fun times. Check out the list of all the excellent local breweries who participated. And let’s hope for a Day of Dorks 2018!
