It's official, we've now released our second, small-batch, hand-canned treat, Silverback Pale Ale.
It's an artfully balanced beer with a citrusy aroma, crisp pale malt flavors and a satisfying hop character throughout. It has a refreshing hoppy finish, 40 International Bittering Units, and a comfortable 5.5% ABV.
Hoppy but highly sessionable, Silverback Pale Ale is made with grains of paradise for a unique spiciness and a novel twist on the American pale ale style.
The beer also allows us to ramp up the "gorilla marketing" we've been doing for years for the Denver-based Mountain Gorilla Conservation Fund. Fifty percent of all profits from the sale of the beer will go to the MGCF, and grains of paradise are a vital part of the diets of Lowland and Mountain Gorillas.
The beer is now available at six local spots: Argonaut Wine & Liquor, Lukas Liquors, Superior Liquors, Highlands Wine & Liquor, Wines off Wynkoop and Wynkoop Brewing Company. It is now appearing at our other retailers in the Denver area.
