Colorado Pint Day is a celebration of Colorado, The State of Craft Beer.

Each of Colorado’s independent craft brewers is a local small business, and on April 7th, the CBG will encourage locals and visitors alike to see how and who makes their beer. Today is a day to put a face to the beer you love so much. It is the entrepreneurial spirit of these brewery owners and staff that build our communities and create a gathering place for us all. Some breweries are working together to develop “Brewery Loop Tours” via vans, shuttles or buses to transport you safely to multiple locations all in one day.

Sat., Apr. 21, 12-11 pm: Vol. II: Still Gleekin’ Bottle Release at Call to Arms Brewing Company

We couldn’t just do a one and done! Almost 2 years ago, we debuted our first collab with the crazy folks over at Novel Strand Brewing, notoriously known as, The Notorious G.L.E.E.K.. We all knew right away this bad boy had to come back one way or another. Introducing the release of VOL. II: Still Gleekin’, a sour ale fermented in a Cabernet Sauvignon Barrel with Brettanomyces and Mosaic hops, on Saturday, April 21st at Noon.

For Vol. II, we switched things up and fermented the whole shebang in a b-e-a-utiful Cabernet Sauvignon barrel with multiple microbes –some that we added and some that joined us from the wood. Several sneaky additions of Mosaic hops and a whole bunch of time yielded this glorious thing; a delicate, fluffy beer with a gentle twang reminiscent of historic Belgian saisons, and an unmistakable grape flavor that provides a subtle reminder of the wine this barrel once housed. It’s pretty dope.

After 2 months conditioning in bottles, it’s finally ready. So on April 21st, come and get old school with us as we drop Vol. II: Still Gleekin’!

375mL bottles
Only 200 bottles available
Limit 3 per person
$10 each
