As the seasons finally turn in Colorado, AC Golden Brewing Company is giving one last nod to summer as it rolls out Colorado Native Peche, a sour beer made with world famous Colorado peaches from Palisade.
Hitting shelves now in limited quantity, Peche is brewed with 100 percent Colorado ingredients, including pale, caramel, and Munich malts. The resulting beer is relaxed in used, neutral, wine barrels for nearly a year with the brewer’s house culture of microorganisms. It is then fermented on fresh Colorado peaches at a rate of two pounds per gallon of beer.
Peche is the second of AC Golden’s award-winning sour beers to be released under the Colorado Native banner. It was formerly part of AC Golden’s Hidden Barrel Collection as it didn’t have all Colorado ingredients.
Colorado Native Peche is crisp and dry, and alive with peach flavor. The ABV is 7 percent.
According to AC Golden head brewer, Jeff Nickel, “Peche pairs well with sweet, fruity desserts such as caramel apple pie. It also works with fatty meats, including short ribs and tuna filets.”
AC Golden Brewing Company brews beers with 100 percent Colorado ingredients, making it the natural choice for beer drinkers who want to stay local with their choices.

Colorado Native IPL, and several specialty beers under the Colorado Native label, including: Olathe, Pilsner, Peche, Plum, and Winterfest.
