GREELEY, CO — Wiley Roots Brewing Company is kicking off the Greeley Blues Jam weekend with a Pool Party at the brewery on Friday, featuring live music from the Buzz Brothers Band and Queen Bee and the Stingers, barbeque food from Smokin’ Bros Barbecue, three new Slush variants, a new frozen Slush variant, and launching a new beer from their new Local Roaster series.
Starting at 12pm on June 8, 2018, the brewery will release Pineapple Strawberry Slush, Pool Party Slush, frozen Double Cherry Limeade Slush, and Thanks a Latte coffee blonde from the taproom. Then at 5:30pm, the Buzz Brothers Band and Queen Bee and the Stingers will play a free concert from the patio. All beer is first come, first served and may run out.
Slush is the brewery’s heavily fruited, rotating sour series, inspired by everyone’s favorite drive-in summer drink. For this release, Wiley Roots decided to recreate their favorite adult poolside slushy cocktails with Pineapple Strawberry Slush and Pool Party Slush. Pineapple Strawberry Slush is made from pureed whole fruit pineapples and fresh strawberries, created in memory of summertime at the local pool with frozen daiquiris. Pool Party Slush is made for this summer and the next with a poolside Mojito, made with fresh hand pressed limes, crushed spearmint, and a shot of rum.
The brewery will also be re-releasing Cherry Limeade, this time as a frozen slushy with double the fruit. Frozen Slush variants have become very popular at the brewery since Lemon-Lime Slush was introduced in April. Wiley Roots originally rented two slushy machines as a fun way of promoting new Slush cans, but after receiving overwhelming demand for more variants, the brewery decided to purchase a slushy machine. Frozen Double Cherry Limeade will be available on-site only this weekend.
Wiley Roots is also launching a new Local Roasters coffee series to showcase local coffee roasters in Colorado. The first beer in the series, Thanks a Latte, is a sessionable and semi-sweet American Blonde with noble hops, lactose, and cold steeped coffee from Beagle Coffee Company in Fort Collins. This beer was made with the Atlas blend, which combines El Salvador San Luis coffee beans washed with a small amount of Nicaragua la Bastilla beans, creating an incredibly unique flavor and aroma that compliments the slightly bready and biscuity finish of a classic American Blonde. Lactose was then added to round out the beer with a heightened level of sweetness, which cuts the robust coffee roast, emulating a shot of whipped cream in a morning latte.
Thanks a Latte will be available on tap for $6.00 per 16oz, Pineapple Strawberry Slush and Pool Party Slush will be on tap for $6.50 per 12oz, and frozen Double Cherry Limeade Slush will be available for $7.00 per 12oz. We will also be selling cans of Thanks a Latte to-go for $15 per 4-pack, with Pineapple Strawberry Slush and Pool Party Slush available to-go for $16 per 4-pack. All cans to-go are one case per person, per variant limit.
