Chiquitita, Tell Me What’s Wrong?

I hate to see you like this. Does this cloudy weather got you feeling a little gray and uninspired? Were you all ready for your hot girl summer, but nowhere to wear that new budgie smuggler? Well, don’t call me no dummy, dummy. We’ve got all kinds of new drops this week… they’ll be having you singing, “All on my tounge, I want it!

So… (drumroll please) tomorrow is July 9th, which means Lakewood Brewing will be in for a pint night! Woohoo! We’ll have their Hazy IPA collaboration with Alesmith on draft and other package tastings from 5:30 to 8pm. The following week of July 15th, Bishop Cider will be in the store launching their new smoothie seltzers. At the end of the month, Blue Norther will be in the building the nights of the 29th & 30th.

One more gem for today’s letter: we’re having a party on the 21st! It’s Belgium National Day, and we feel like the Duke of Wellington here in our mirror hamlet of Waterloo. So what better way to crush the day than a good ol’ fête? We’ll be selling pours of 3 Fonteinen, pouring other selected Belgian brews, and having some Belgian themed food specials, gezondheid! Keep your eyes on our socials to see what else we come up with between now and then.

Circle was a huge hit for our June brewery of the month, so we’re keeping them for July! We’ve got Lady Bird American IPA, Envy Amber, Blur Hefe, and Alibi Blond all for $7.99!

Come have a beer and sing a new song, Chiquitita!

Later, y’all.

Avery Pomona BA Tart – Mixed culture barrel aged sour ale with pomegranate and blueberry. 6.5% ABV

Founders Mas Agave Lime – We love cocktails. Like, really love them.

We took an imperial gose brewed with agave, lime and sea salt and then aged it in tequila barrels. 10%

Flying Embers Black Cherry Hard Kombucha – The sweet tang of muddled black cherry finished with a squeeze of fresh lime. It’s a burst of bold fruitiness that’s made to be savored. 7.2% ABV

Left Hand St. Vrain Triple Ale – The usually tranquil St. Vrain River flows out of the Rocky Mountains, winding peacefully alongside our brewery. But, what at first appears benevolent can manifest into something fierce and mighty. Named after the river that brought our hometown’s great flood in 2013, St. Vrain is designed to pay homage to classic Belgian Tripels while also adding a uniquely local twist. Colorado barley creates a subtle malt sweetness and American hops bring rich herbal and floral aromatics, both perfectly complimenting the warm spice and fruit character of the Belgian yeast. What at first looks innocent, light in color and body, suddenly swells up with a strong current of aroma and flavor, and a 9.3% ABV

Ommegang Super Kriek – An old Belgian tradition – the artful blending of different beers to create unique, transcendent flavors – has a new home in the New World. An unlikely alliance of freshness and funk, this release combines Belgian Kriek with a tart Oud Bruin aged for years in oak barrels at Liefmans, our sister Blenderie in Belgium. Bright cherries, assertive sourness, oaky tannins, and subtle barnyard notes make for a deeply layered, richly complex, and truly distinctive experience. 7% ABV

Blue Owl Tiger’s Blood – Why outgrow the things that bring you joy? Bring back that summer feeling of snow cones and smiles with Tiger’s Blood. These iconic summertime fruits come together, making a mouthwatering blend that’s eudemonic! A sweet treat of juicy summer fruits strawberry, watermelon, a hint of coconut, and Blue Owl’s signature sour taste. Cold, refreshing, and oh so fun! 5.6% ABV

The Bruery Boysenberry Pie BA Imperial Stout – Slice into this bold, barrel-aged imperial fruited stout and experience a slice of Southern California in your glass. Inspired by Orange County’s rich history of growing boysenberries, this barrel-aged imperial fruited stout is full-bodied with big, bold berry flavors that are drizzled with rich vanilla flavor and a hint of cinnamon. Pouring a dark brown with a fluffy head, the nose is welcomed by notes of baker’s chocolate and berries. Decadently smooth, roasted notes from the base beer complement the bright berry flavors reminiscent of a freshly-baked boysenberry pie. 10.2% ABV

The Bruery Frucht Cucumber – Frucht gains complexity from a blend of Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus. Our Bruers added cucumber to give it a coolness, gaining additional layers of complexity from its time spent in oak foeders. Flavorful, effervescent, and crisp. We can’t come up with enough adjectives to talk about this beer. 4.3% ABV

De La Senne Ouden Vat – This result of a well-thought blend of different Brett-refermented and lactic bacteria-refermented ales, has aged on wooden barrels for over a year, to get an ideal compromise between a complex and refreshing beer. Dark amber in colour, with a hint of ruby. Beautifully clear, and extremely fine foam. A very fruity nose, dominated by cherries on alcohol and some woodiness. In the mouth, a well-maintained acidity, complimented by a wonderful creaminess. Among its flavours: griottes cherries, blackberries, prunes from Agen, blueberries, caramel, and a slight roasty touch. A very round finale, bringing us back to blueberries. 6.7%

Drake’s Brewing Denogginizer DIPA – Brace yourself. Denogginizer is a massive Double IPA that’s sublimely hopped with an over-the-top dosing of dank, sticky, West Coast hops. With just enough malt backbone to keep the big, bold, resinous hop monster in check, be careful, you might lose your head to the Denogginizer. 9.75% ABV

Drake’s Brewing Flyway Pils – Flyway Pils is a North German style pilsner, which are distinctive in their high hopping rates and clean, dry body. We combine extra premium pale German pilsner malt with the most American ingredient of all, flaked maize, which dries the body out nicely, and we hop it exclusively with a noble-style American hop called Vanguard. The beer displays a nice spiciness with a subtle fruited note, and finishes clean and dry. 4.5% ABV

Drake’s Brewing Hopocalypse – Massive amounts of hops have been deployed to unleash the Hopocalypse. Embrace the haze and enjoy juicy notes of tangerine, papaya, peach, and mango in every sip of this double IPA. 8.4% ABV

D’Achouffe La Chouffe – The gnomes of Fairyland are particularly fond of this golden beer. LA CHOUFFE, with its slight hoppy taste, combining notes of fresh coriander and fruity tones, is the drink which gives them their zest for life. At least, that’s what these imps say when they are thirsty. Their secret used to be jealously guarded from one generation to the next until the day they shared the recipe with humans to seal their friendship. 8% ABV
