Ratio Beerworks Announces 2018 GABF Events and Releases

Between now and next week Ratio will be bringing back their Continuous Thunder Double IPA, Stay Gold Oktoberfest Marzen Lager, and King of Carrot Flowers Carrot and Elderflower Saison.

Wednesday, September 19: King of Carrot Flowers Carrot Elderflower Saison Release – Noon

Unlike any other beer you’ve ever experienced, King of Carrot Flowers, a carrot juice and elderflower Saison, defies convention, crafted with culinary balance in mind. Made in celebration of EatDenver’s Harvest Week, King of Carrot Flowers bursts forth in an illuminate, ripe cantaloupe orange hue, while exhibiting subtle fruit-forward citrus notes and nuances of pear, honey, coriander and vanilla. This vibrant, expressive, dry Saison showcases the versatility that can occur between beer and food, and also represents the complete journey from the fields of the farm, to the streets of the city, culminating in the glass that you are holding. Join Ratio Beerworks at Noon for the re-release of King of Carrot Flowers.

Wednesday, September 19:  Get Your Mind Right Pre-GABF Lounge at Ratio – 3-6pm

As all of our beer friends descend upon Denver for the Great American Beer Festival, we invite everyone out to Ratio to get your mind right and receive a pampered afternoon on the patio before a heavy week of drinking. Our Get Your Mind Right Lounge will feature hammocks provided by Trek Light Gear, inflatable furniture from Intex, free massages from Elixir Massage, free snacks from Bubba’s Foods, Frozen Matter Ice Cream, and Cart Driver and of course Ratio beers available for purchase.
