Back for its third year, our Belgium-meets-Colorado IPA hits the taps at Wynkoop and a select few of Denver's beeriest spots starting September 1. Belgorado is built with 95% Colorado-grown ingredients including the beer's base malts and 75 pounds per batch of fresh, locally grown hops. All fermented with a Belgian yeast.
The beer is lusciously balanced with pale malt flavors, spice notes and layers of hops. It features 6.7% ABV, 50 IBUs, 95 OMGs. The beer (we're happy to recall) was a 2011 Great American Beer Festival bronze medalist in the Experimental Beer category.
This year we're doing the beer in three batches, each with wet/fresh hops from a different Colorado hop farm. (Come in, terroir seekers.)
