Funkwerks Raspberry Provincial

Belgian-Style Sour Ale4.2% ABV

FunkwerksFort Collins, CO

This delicious creation was truly a product of creativity, ingenuity, and luck. Last summer we took a test batch of our Berliner Weisse style summer ale, Provincial, that didn’t quite hit gravity, and decided to have some fun with it! We added a heavy dose of raspberries to this sessionable, refreshingly tart beer. The end result was so delicious, we decided to recreate it! This delightfully tart fruit beer is stimulating and refreshing, with a citrusy raspberry aroma which transitions to a subtlety sweet and tart finish.

Free State Copperhead Pale Ale

Free State Copperhead Pale Ale

American Pale Ale6.0% ABV53 IBU

Free State Brewing Co.Lawrence, KS

Silver Medal Winner 1997 World Beer Championships - India Pale Ales. This flavorful beer is made in the style of the India Pale Ale Style originally manufactured in Great Britain for their colonies in India, but with an American twist. The harsh travel that the beer had to survive required a strong, hoppy beer. The Hops and the high level of alcohol helped buffer the beer through its long travels. Made with flavorful and full bodied Pale Ale malt combined with a touch of caravienne for color and carapils for body, the rich flavor of this beer is matched and enhanced by a very generous portion of Centennial and Cascade hops. The Cascades give this beer its distinctive floral aroma and a uniquely American character.
