Beers Made By Walking (Monument/Colorado Springs)
Beers Made By Walkingis a program that invites brewers to make beer inspired by nature hikes and urban walks. Each walk is different, each beer is a portrait of that landscape. Join this year’s BMBW crew as we introduce eight new beers to the Pikes Peak Region! The beers will be available at Pikes Peak Brewing Co. on Saturday September 22nd, from 3-6pm, and the cost is $10.
This summer we invited eight groups of local homebrewers to join us on a public hike. We walked the Palmer Lake Reservoir Trail, identifying edible and medicinal plants along the way. Each group came up with an exciting and innovative recipe, using ingredients that are non-traditional in contemporary brewing practices. The beers were produced at Pikes Peak Brewing and will be available at the brewery for one day only. $10 will give you entry and unlimited samples of each brew. Here is a list of the brewers and the eight beers that will be available at the event:
Bryan Paradisi and Oren Weil
Professor Plum / Brandy Oak Plum Porter
Carol White and Zenia Brink
Rosie’s Wild Hips and Hops / Belgian Pale Ale with Rose Hips, Clover Honey and Wild Hops
