Colorado beer calendar: GABF-winning beers hit the city; Fresh Hops at Falling Rock; new releases from Avery, Great Divide

The GABF judges from 2011.
​One of the biggest bummers about the Great American Beer Festival being over is that it can be hard to find — and drink — the medal winners: Some were one-off brews that are no longer available. Others are on-draft-only options in towns a couple of hours away. Luckily, a few are still floating around — specifically at Denver Beer Co, Copper Kettle and Wynkoop Brewing. And then there’s Odell Brewing’s gold-medal-winning Friek, which will be re-released later this month in 750 ml bottles. The beer, a cross between a Framboise and a sour Kriek, won gold for wood- and barrel-aged sour beers. Aged in oak barrels with Colorado-grown cherries, it was blended with raspberries.

Local brewers continue to buck the trend

Posted by admin | About | Posted on February 21st, 2011

Locally-brewed craft beers are continuing to buck the trend as a new major industry report reveals volumes for independent brewers grew by nearly nine per cent in 2010.

The Local Brewing Industry Report 2011, published today by the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA), surveyed around half of all SIBA’s 463 members – and found volumes grew by 8.8 per cent.

This was compared to an overall decline of 3.9 per cent in the UK beer market last year.

The report also notes the diversity of beers also being produced by SIBA members. Cask ale maintained its production share of around 80 per cent, but keg beers grew as smaller brewers looked to create a broader ‘craft beer’ market.

SIBA members are producing around 2,500 cask beer brands a year, 3,500 seasonal ales and 1,750 bottled brands, compared to just 300 in 1976.

But the report also warns of the threat to the “punitive” duty charged on beer in the on-trade.
