All Month Long: Charity Tap at Wynkoop Brewing Co.

February’s Charity: Colorado Haiti Project

Wynkoop Brewing Company—Colorado’s first brewpub—announced they are kicking off a charity tap program, where each month they will dedicate one tap to a local charity and donate $1 from every beer sold to the selected organization. The charity brews will rotate and will be named for the partner of the month.

Here is info on the Moringa Lager, the beer they brewed especially for this cause:

Moringa Lager is a 4.7% ABV, 10 IBU Tropical-Style Pale Lager brewed with Toasted Rice, Flaked Maize and Moringa leaves. Crisp, light and refreshing this Lager is an easy sipper. It’s also the world’s first beer brewed with Moringa leaves, which are native to Haiti and highly nutritious. The leaves can be used as a cooking herb as well as a base for making a flavorful and healthy tea. Rice and corn are two huge crops in Haiti and the style of beer of this Lager is typical of the region as well.

About the Colorado Haiti Project:

The Colorado Haiti Project has been working with community leaders in the rural town of Petit Trou de Nippes for over 28 years, supporting community-driven programs in education, community health, water and hygiene, girls’ and women’s empowerment, and agriculture. They provide resources to Haitian leaders, building bridges from the U.S. to Haiti that provide vital support for local vision and leadership. Microcredit programs, digging wells and the development of a local seed bank are also big parts of what makes the Colorado Haiti Project such an integral part of the development of the community on the island.


All Month Long: Stout Month at Resolute Brewing Company

A tapping of RESOLUTE’s American Stout kicks it all off on Thursday, Feb. 1. With an elevated ABV of 7 percent, the American Stout features dark, roasty malts balanced by a late addition of Citra hops, lending some unexpected citrus aroma characteristics and pronounced bitterness.

 The Latte Milk Stout will be tapped on Monday, Feb. 5. Back again just for Stout Month, the Latte Milk Stout is reminiscent of a fresh latte, served cold! Milk sugar and flaked barley give this roasty beer a smooth, creamy mouthfeel, and its coffee aroma can be attributed to locally-sourced coffee beans from Jubilee Roasting Company, based in Aurora. Coming in at 6.8 percent ABV, this small batch is sure to be the perfect pick-me-up.

Candy lovers rejoice – the Chocolate Orange Stout will be tapped on Monday, Feb. 12. Pale chocolate malt lends a mellow, sweet flavor backed by bright citrus from fresh oranges and hops. This energetic stout comes in at 6.2 percent ABV.

 Just in time for Valentine’s Day, RESOLUTE will be releasing its Rum Raisin Imperial Stout. This big, bold beer will offer aromas of intense roasted malts, notes of dried fruits and a hint of Caribbean rum on the finish, with balanced bitterness. Between 9.5 and 10 percent, the Rum Raisin Imperial Stout is for lovers; Valentines can buy one, get one for their first round, just on Feb. 14. 

 The Coconut Cream Stout, tapping on Monday, Feb. 19, will fool you into thinking you’re enjoying a Hershey’s Mounds Bar. Subtle flavors of hazelnut and milk chocolate are backed by fresh coconut for a smooth mouthfeel and surprisingly crisp finish. At 5.9 percent ABV, you can enjoy a few (responsibly, of course).

 Last (but not least!), RESOLUTE will tap its Golden Stout on Monday, Feb. 26. The Golden Stout made its debut during the brewery’s first anniversary week last August and proved to be a hit. Unexpected but delicious, this beer pours a sunny, golden color with all the aroma and flavor of a traditional stout, featuring notes of roasted coffee, fresh vanilla and chocolate. Coming in at 5.4 percent ABV, this small batch won’t last long.

March Beer Events

There are far too many events in any given month to post here, so for even more events, see my Facebook page!

BW_WK_715A _WynkoopCharityTapPoster_FA

All Month Long: Charity Tap at Wynkoop Brewing Co.

March’s Charity: Dora Moore Elementary School

Wynkoop Brewing Company—Colorado’s first brewpub—announced they are kicking off a charity tap program, where each month they will dedicate one tap to a local charity and donate $1 from every beer sold to the selected organization.

Sat., Mar. 3, 1-5pm: Winter Craft Beer Festival 2018 at 29th Street Mall in Boulder

We started Winter Craft to disrupt the norm. We all need a reason to get off the couch, turn off Netflix and experience all Boulder has to offer during the cold winter months. And what better way to do that than by drinking great beer. There are so many great styles that come around in the cold months that you don’t get at the summer festival scene, and our brewers don’t disappoint every year.

The event will take place again at the 29th Street mall in Boulder in the covered and heated portion of the underground parking structure. Last year Winter Craft boasted 50 breweries from eight states in attendance and the organizers are predicting a similar lineup to last year’s, with one twist. “The world of craft has become murky and confusing. So we will only be inviting independent brewers to this year’s fest, says co-founder Ross Bowdey. We don’t care how big the brewery is or where they come from, but we want to help the independent brewers continue to grow. Our attendees will leave knowing the breweries who attended are some of the best independent breweries in Colorado and beyond.” The event will also include food trucks, live music and many other fun surprises.

This year promises to be bigger and better, so don’t waste time, get your tickets today!


Sat., Mar. 3, 6-9pm: Zach’s Chili Challenge at The McNichols Building

Throughout the night, guests will cast their vote for their favorite chili, beer, and spirit alongside a panel of food critic judges, including 9NEWS’s Steve StaegerDenise Mickelsen from 5280, and Mark Antonation from Westword!
