Sat., Oct. 13, 10-11 am: Honey Helles Bock Release Party at Wynkoop Brewing Co.

Wynkoop’s “Honey Helles” Bock Tap Release

Just in time for the annual Honey Summit! (seriously, it’s a thing)

Join us Saturday, October 13th, at 10AM for a special tapping of our “Honey Helles” Bock release with paired bites hosted by John Sims (Head Brewer) and Brent Butterfield (Head Chef).

Inspired by Wynkoop brewers Charles McManus and Jason Lima’s stop by the National Honey Board booth at the Craft Brewers Conference in Nashville, TN — our Honey Helles Bock is a golden lager brewed with the fall in mind. Five gallons of Orange Blossom Honey donated by our friends at the National Honey Board was added at the end of boil to maintain flavor and aroma. It sits at a smooth 6.8% ABV and has just a touch of warm honey notes in the finish.

RSVP ticket holders each receive a breakout pour, paired bite and pint card good for any Wynkoop visit.

So snag your tix, set your alarm, and prepare to join us at this limited-release bash of autumnal Wynkoop brews and paired bites.

Tue., Oct. 23, 6-9 pm: The Great American Beer Election at BarFly Denver

Join us in BarFly for an important civics lesson… while drinking beer!

A beer election serves to educate the public about the practice of Ranked Choice Voting (RCV). RCV provides a better way to count votes during an election, so that voters benefit from several advantages, some of which include: getting to choose from more than the typical two candidates, having your second- and third-place preferences count for something, keeping politicians from winning by simply appealing to the extremists in their party base. To date more than ten cities now use RCV including four in the Bay Area of California, plus Minneapolis and St. Paul Just this year, Maine has switched to RCV for all offices at or below the state level.

Tickets are $10 for a flight of 5 beers and an interactive lesson in Ranked Choice Voting.

Thur., Nov. 1, 3-10 pm: Bottle Release: Really, Really, Ridiculously Good Tasting at Arms Brewing Company

What might be our final Carriage House Series Bottle Release of 2018 is a really, really good one. Last released in March 2017, this Petite Farmhouse Saison handsomely aged in Chardonnay Barrels has truly earned its name…’Really, Really, Ridiculously Good Tasting’ returns on Thursday, November 1st at 3pm.

Just like the previous batch, this beer was brewed with a delicate blend of Pilsner, White Wheat, and Acidulated malts. We then added Bravo hops for a spicy and floral balance. Primary fermentation began with a traditional French Saison yeast, but we later barrel-conditioned for months on end with Brett Claussenii to add farmhouse characteristics to this well-rounded beer. And finally to make this batch even more special, we bottle conditioned these beauties.

Expect notes of cantaloupe. lemon zest, and light barnyard funk with soft layers of vanilla and coconut in the finish.

There will only be 200 375mL bottles available, with a limit of 2 per customer. There will also be about 20 750mL bottles available, with a limit of 1 per customer. And as usual, we will also have a limited amount of ‘Really, Really, Ridiculously Good Tasting’ available on tap for this event!
