Woody Creek Vodka   
Woody Creek  ·  United States
1 oz: $4.00
Somewhere along the way, vodka became a spirit for people who didn't want to taste what they were drinking. And other distillers have been all too happy to appease them. Making their vodka ever more devoid of taste and character, or by adding a litany of ridiculous flavors. But now there is Woody Creek potato vodka. Distilled once, because that's all it needs and available in only one flavor. Vodka. Woody Creek. The return of real vodka.

Casey Oak Theory   
Casey Brewing & Blending  ·  Glenwood Springs, CO
This beer is our take on classic Belgian sour beers from the Senne Valley. We combine Colorado pilsner malt and raw wheat with a hefty charge of aged European whole hops and boil for almost 3 hours. We ferment in a variety of different sized oak barrels with a proprietary blend of saccharomyces, brettanomyces and various lactic acid bacteria cultures. After aging in these barrels for anywhere from 9-12 months, barrels are selected for their unique flavors and that individual blend is born.

Deviant Dale’s IPA was born at the crossroads, in a juke joint, as if Dale’s Pale Ale sold its soul to balance Deviant’s foreboding aromas of citrus, grapefruit rind and piney resins, its copper ball-of-fire color and inscrutable flavor-intense finish.
