Drink Local: March 11-18


Our short spell of awesome spring weather has ended and the usual March Colorado weather has once again thrust us into an Ice Age. That might seem a bit dramatic, but it gives us a great reason to head indoors to our favorite drinking holes for some great upcoming events! As always, check out our event calendar for periodic updates!

Wee Banshee Irish Heather Release at Trinity Brewing

Our release date for this ale is of course St. Patricks Day. Using ingredients directly from the isle we brewed up a historically authentic ancient beer. Victory and Vienna malts create a toasty profile that is balanced by a lightly sweet caramel note. European noble hops add a dryness and drinkability to the ale while balancing and supporting the complex malt undertones. Separating this ale from all Irish reds, Heather Tips bring us back to ancient and medieval brewing times. Bringing a little bit more of the isle into this ale we add a very small amount of sea salt and seaweed to the boil. 7.0% ABV; rare.http://www.focusonthe.beer/event/wee-banshee-irish-heather-release/
