IT’S BACK!! Peace & Assist returns for its 4th year of craft beer collaboration and camaraderie. Where other breweries send Cease & Desist letters, we aim to bring Peace while Assisting our brothers and sisters in arms!
Every year, Call to Arms Brewing Company and Cannonball Creek Brewing Company join forces to bring support to a young, up-and-coming Colorado brewery, and this year’s brewing partner is Cellar West Artisan Ales located at 1001 Lee Hill Dr #10 in north Boulder.
Cellar West is a family-owned brewery that brews distinctive, barrel-fermented beers that celebrate people, place, and purpose – all of which fits perfectly within the Peace & Assist mindset.
The event will take place on Saturday, August 12th from 1-9pm and the beer lineup is perhaps the strongest yet:
– Peace & Assist No. 4 – A Rye Saison brewed with raw and malted rye, and fermented in oak with the Cellar West wild yeast culture
– Peace & Assist No. 4 w/ Cucumber and Cardamom – Fresh cukes and cardamom were added to the base style for this one-off gem with notes of melon and white peppercorn
– Dry-Hopped Peace & Assist No. 4 – Available in bottles as well (!!), this P&A iteration features Amarillo and Hallertau Blanc hops for notes of soft-yet-layered orange zest
– Bottles of the Dry-Hopped P&A No. 4 are extremely limited, with less than 30 cases available
– We’ll also be pouring beer from Call to Arms and Cannonball Creek throughout the day, and you’ll be able to sample all of Cellar West’s amazing creations both on tap and in bottles
– We’ll also be pushing out the Cellar West patio and taking over most of the parking lot, so there’ll be plenty of room to drink amazing beer in the Colorado sunshine
– Incredible food is lined up from the legendary Danny O and the coolest food truck ever, Stone Lotus of Boulder
– Hours of live music will be provided by the one-and-only Chunky Whiskey
– As is always the case with P&A, a portion of the day’s proceeds will go to a local charity!
We hope you’ll join us August 12th to celebrate craft beer in its purest form and see for yourself all that Cellar West Artisan Ales has to offer in their north Boulder digs!
