Wiley Roots Announces Great American Beer Festival Beer Releases and Events

GREELEY, CO - Wiley Roots Brewing Company released their full event schedule today for the Great American Beer Festival, including a special on site release at the brewery.

On Tuesday, October 1 at 12 pm, Wiley Roots will open their doors for a Buy-One-Get-One (BOGO) industry celebration of Slush, the brewery’s popular sour ale series. Wiley Roots is normally closed on Tuesdays, making this a very special event. All industry personnel, from brewers, to owners, to sales, to packaging are invited to the brewery to enjoy BOGO full pours of Slush from 12-6pm. This will include Imperial Slush variants, double fruit Slush variants, and new Slush variants. Customers that are not affiliated with the craft beer industry will have an opportunity to enjoy ½ priced beers on the same day as part of the brewery’s October Train Beer promotion. Wiley Root’s Train Beer is a local discount that has gained a loyal customer base over the past year, offering discounts on beer every time trains pass.

This year, the brewery will release Last Minute Details, a New England Double IPA collaboration with Woods Boss Brewing Company; Key Lime State Fair Cobbler, an Imperial Milkshake Sour IPA with puréed key limes, with graham cracker, cinnamon, vanilla, and milk sugar dry hopped with mandarina bavaria and lemon drop hops; Wooden Spoon & Whisk: Maple Vanilla Breakfast Scone, an Imperial Stout with Maple Syrup, Vanilla, and Milk Sugar; Leafer, a German Amber Lager with Vienna malt, Munich malt, and Northern Brewer hops with a clean malt flavor, balanced hop character, and smooth finish; and Black Bart Monstah, Imperial Sopapilla Stout with Cinnamon, Burnt Sugar, and Honey inspired by Casa Bonita’s Black Bart’s Cave and famous sopapillas.

To end the week, Wiley Roots will join 60 other breweries from across the country at the 11th Annual Denver Rare Beer Tasting to raise funds for Pints for Prostates on Friday, October 4 at 12pm. The brewery will be pouring Nelson Sauvin Funk Yo Couch, the brewery’s award winning farmhouse mixed culture saison series made with brettanomyces and dry hopped with Nelson Sauvin hops; and Vanilla Anonym, an Imperial Stout aged for 18 months in Breckenridge Bourbon barrels with Madagascar bourbon vanilla beans. Nelson Sauvin Funk Yo Couch and Vanilla Anonym are two of the most sought after beers Wiley Roots released this year, so both are expected to go quickly during the festival.
