September Beer Releases That We Are Excited About
August and summer flew right by and it's almost fall. That means it's almost time for Great American Beer Festival, Pumpkin beers and special releases from the breweries across the great state of Colorado. As always, it is extremely hard to narrow down all of the interesting releases from breweries but we have a few that jumped out to us for this month. In no particular order, here are the September beer releases we think are extremely interesting!
Two-Headed Monstah From Wiley Roots Brewing Co. & Something Brewery
A collaboration between two northern Colorado breweries, Two-Headed Monstah is two different beers made between the breweries and released at two different times. The Wiley Roots edition features their Mean Beans Imperial Coffee Stout base with Hazelnut and cold steeped coffee from NoCo Coffee Company while the Something Brewery version features their Cookie Monsta Imperial Stout base, cold steep coffee from NoCo Coffee Company and 100lbs of Oreo cookies.
Both Wiley Roots and Something Brewery will have these beers available at both locations with 2 packs of 19.2 oz cans to go, you can grab a pack of these beers and mix at your leisure to create the ultimate Two-Headed Monstah beer!
AVAILABILITY: 9/8/18 at both Wiley Roots Brewing and Something Brewery, Draft, no distribution other than bottles on site.
Gratitude Five Peach Brett Beer (Gratitude Bottles Releases) From Our Mutual Friend Brewing Co.
Our Mutual Friend is throwing their 5th annual Gratitude event in celebration of friendship and the beer made possible by it. The brewery throws a celebration every year to celebrate their fans and thank everyone for their support through this great celebration. This year, they are releasing their Gratitude Five Peach Brett Beer and the Little Maker Cherry Sour for the event both on tap and in bottles.
AVAILABILITY: 9/15/18 at Our Mutual Friend, Packages for the event are available online.
Moon Landscape Pecan Coffee BA Stout From Launch Pad Brewery
Launch Pad Brewery out of Aurora, Colorado is releasing their Pecan Coffee BA stout "Moon Landscape" to the public and it sounds amazing. Pecan nuttiness was added to the stout base along with a coffee from West Coast Roasting Co. which was then aged in 6 months in Law's Bourbon barrels and the pecan backing should prove to be a delicious combination.
AVAILABILITY: 9/8/18 at Launch Pad Brewery, Draft, no distribution other than bottles on site
Slush DDH Galaxy and In the Steep DDH Nelson From Outer Range Brewing Company
Outer Range is getting ready for GABF 2018 with a bang by releasing two can sets for their Slush DDH Galaxy and In the Steep DDH Nelson beers that week. The beers will be released at Bogeys Beer and Wine store for sale and you can attend the release event at The Crafty Fox to get a taste on draft of not only these beers, but tons of other amazing brews in their TAP TAKEOVER!
AVAILABILITY: 9/21/18 at the Crafty Fox (draft) and Bogeys Beer and Wine (cans)
GABF Coconut Medianoche and Can Releases from WeldWerks Brewing Company
Medianoche is one of the biggest beers released from Weldwerks and this year for GABF, the brewery is pulling no punches. Releasing a Coconut Medianoche along with several other canned releases (including their outrageous spaghetti Gose) WeldWerks is a spot to be for GABF week. Here is a quote from WeldWerks about that Spaghetti Gose:
"In our relentless quest to evoke vitriolic reactions from the Reinheitsgebot purists, we think we have finally crafted a beer that will incite rage the likes of which have never been seen. Today we are brewing Uncle Bob’s Spaghetti Gose, a beer inspired by our Uncle Bob’s fantastic spaghetti sauce recipe and brewed with tomato puree, roasted tomatoes from Bayberry Fresh LLC, fresh basil from Bayberry Fresh, a dash of oregano, a few pinches of sea salt, and of course, spaghetti."
AVAILABILITY: Spaghetti Gose (Tentative September) Coconut Medianoche and other cans release on 9/19/18 only at WeldWerks Brewing Company in Greeley, CO.
BA Forever Awake (and other releases) From Cerebral Brewing
Cerebral is bringing the heat for GABF week with their week of releases for cans, bottles, and draft. With several different cans being released in ranges of hoppy to sour styles, if you are a fan of Cerebral and craft beer then you will probably find something to like. That week will also see the release of both the Barrel-Aged Forever Awake and the Barrel-Aged Ancient Ruins. Coffee beers are my thing and I am super excited to try the BA Forever Awake along with the rest of these new releases!
AVAILABILITY: 9/19/18-9/22/18 - Releases of Deep Though and Tulpamancer on 19th, Release of BA Ancient Ruins and Forever Awake on 9/21/18 & 9/22/18
With beers from a spaghetti gose to BA Pecan Coffee stouts, there are several awesome options available for the month of September that you should try! Enjoy GABF month and all of the great releases that come from it!
