Our house IPA Rare Trait has always been evocative of stone fruit in one form or another, but peach rings have been our number one tasting note. We even made a version with the actual gummies. But then we thought, we’re in Colorado. We have access to some of the best fresh peaches in the country. It’s high time we take advantage. Straight to you from the Western Slope with notes of, well, Peaches, Peach Cobbler, Peaches in Syrup, but definitely NOT Peaches, you know, the artist.(7%)

We love the great outdoors here in Colorado. Biking, hiking, skiing, camping. And one thing you learn in the mountains is to Be Bear Aware. That means hide your food and if you do make contact, keep your distance. Bears need their personal space too. But we live in the age of the Personal Bubble, so you’re already up to speed. Respectfully distanced notes of Pina Colada, Watermelon Candy, Barenjager and Ransacked Coolers. (9%)

You can learn a lot from watching The Wire. A LOT. But among the good lessons learned, there’s the one about staying one step ahead, staying unpredictable, staying mobile. Well this can release is all of the above. Full-bodied with candied mango, sticky pineapple juice, melon and a dankness that could get your phone tapped. This ain’t one of Stringer Bell’s 40-degree days. (8%)

All three will also be available on tap!
Fri., Sep. 4, 2 pm: 2X Can Release at Fiction Beer Company
New cans y’all!
‘Ocean of Animal Appetite’
Pineapple & Mango Sour IPA
We took inspiration for this tropical sour IPA from the book “Unfamiliar Fishes” by Sarah Vowel. Vowel’s witty and wry historical account of the Americanization of Hawaii was an eye-opening read that helped us broaden our cultural lens and see Hawaii in a whole new light. ‘Ocean of Animal Appetite’ is a reference to a Temperance Map that was used by missionaries to dissuade the locals from alcohol. On the map, you start out at “The Ocean of Animal Appetite” with the risk of drowning in Wine Lake, Beer Lake, Rum Lake, or Whiskey Lake … though if you travel the high road, you’ll eventually end up at the Ocean of Eternity. We’ll gladly take the low road and spend quite a long time at Beer Lake. We’ll swim laps. Wanna join us? Who needs eternity anyway?
Take a trip to the Pacific Ocean with each sip of our sour IPA with pineapple and mango. You won’t find rainforests or tranquil waves in this can; though we did add 3 times our usual amount of fruit for a big, bold, and tropical fruit character. We used copious amounts of El Dorado and Azacca dry hops which complement the sweet citrus and exotic fruit aromas. Soured with the intent to ensure a proper balance of tart and sweet with a nice pop of hop flavor and aroma.
•$17.99 / 4 pack
DDH Galaxy New England Style IPA
Fan Fiction is comprised of characters that we have developed over the years that are now yours to guide. Though each one is familiar, their adventure has not yet been written. With your help, our group of heroes will seek out their purpose beyond the unknown to find their calling and define their cause. By using your knowledge of tales told before, there is no doubt you shall lead them to prosperity and away from temptation.
This New England Double IPA began as a collaboration with the CO: NEIPA & Hazy Haze group. This hazy is double dry hopped Galaxy hops. And, a juicy dose of Mosaic and Citra hops. A full bodied mouthfeel carries the smooth tropical citrus characteristics across your pallet leaving notes of ripe passion fruit, zesty citrus, and a touch of juicy peach.
•$18.99 / 16 oz 4 pack
Cans can be ordered online for pick up to go in the taproom and for Thursday, 09/10 delivery beginning on 09/04 @ 8:00 am. Go to http://www.fictionbeer.com/order-online

Fri., Sep. 11, 12 pm-9 pm: Grand Opening at 6 and 40 Brewery
From 12-9pm on Friday, September 11, 6 and 40 Brewery will celebrate its Grand Opening at 883 Parfet Street, Unit J in Lakewood. The local brewery is a natural extension of Tom’s Brew Shop, a popular store with Colorado’s homebrewing and winemaking communities. The taproom will offer 20 handcrafted beers and seltzers in a retro mechanics’ garage environment best described as an automobile “mini museum.”
“We are humbled by the community support we’ve received at the Brew Shop over the past 10 years,” says Thomas Schurmann, owner of 6 and 40 Brewery. “There is a spirit in the craft beer industry unlike any I’ve experienced. Every day we help hobbyists and commercial brewers alike fine-tune their recipes. Opening a small brewery next door further showcases our talented team, including brewers José Quiñones and Josh Pierce, while giving something back to the Lakewood area.”
“We’re excited to feature our first 10 housemade beers and seltzers on tap for the event,” says Christa Hook, Taproom Manager. “We’ve partnered with local favorite, Munkh’s Mongolian, for a delicious menu served in a comfortable, socially-distanced environment. Just as exciting as the beer selection is the ability to stroll through the Brew Shop and understand the mechanics of how it’s made. We can’t wait to share a pint and a story with the local craft community!”
6 and 40 Brewery occupies 3,200+ square feet of space adjacent to Tom’s Brew Shop in Lakewood, CO, and features a 7 BBL automated brewhouse, six 7 BBL fermenting tanks, six 7 BBL lagering/brite tanks and to-go packaging capabilities, with an annual production capacity of 750 BBL. For everyone’s safety during COVID-19, taproom customers will be escorted to an open table on arrival and the Brew Shop is limited to two customers at a time.
