Weekly Beer Update: Thursday February 25, 2016

As I've watched Untapped get more and more popular (I use it although not as much as I should - myjellomisfit) I've decided to use Untapped ratings on here. If you like them let me know. If nothing else it's an easy link to see what others are saying about the beers. I find it more up to date then RateBeer. I've read many really bad reviews only to see the reviewer give a good score. Take ratings as you wish but I like to actually read the reviews not just look at the numbers. If you find yourself with extra time, take it and review us on your favorite ratings site. We appreciate it.

Weekly Beer Update: Thursday February 11, 2016

We are proud to be welcoming La Cumbre Brewing Co. from Albuquerque, New Mexico to our shelves this week. Distribution will be every couple of weeks or so until production can keep up. Current offerings are Elevated IPA, Malpais Stout and Red Ryeot in 16oz four-pack cans.


It seems some have heard our cry for better beer! As well as La Cumbre we welcome 38 State Brewing Co. and their 16oz four-pack cans of IPA and Titan Rock Red Ale. We have also brought in Vindication Brewing Co. American Bold Ale and Freedom Stout six-pack 12oz Bottles from Boulder. Also we are meeting with TRVE Brewing Company next week and Declaration Brewing Company will be delivering to us for the first time. If you follow this blog and/or shop at our store and other stores please let us know what you are finding that you want to find here (or let the brewery know). We are always on the lookout for good solid breweries to partner with.
While we can't carry every beer, we can carry the best beers.

We do not have any Special Releases this week. However we did bring out the past 4 years of New Belgium La Folie from our "Attic" cellar, creating an option for a 5 year vertical (2012-2016) just in time for Valentine's Day. Bottles are first come, first serve.
