One of the exciting things about the rapidly growing craft beer scene is that we start to see more and more breweries putting their beer into package. It seems like now more than ever your choices in beer are endless. It is always fun to try something new whether it is from a new Colorado brewery or from somewhere out of state. New breweries are pouring in here at West Vail Liquor Mart and the quality is amazing. I would like to tell you about three new breweries we have begun to carry that I am very excited about.
First we have a pair of younger breweries from right here in Colorado. First is Ursula Brewery from Aurora. The brewery originally opened as Coda brewing but changed the name in 2016. They are making a wide array of interesting styles and rock solid beer. Here at the store we are carrying in 22oz bottle format Via Chicago, a flavorful pale ale, and Ursula IPA. Both are really well balanced and have a great flavor that leaves you wanting more.
Next from out home state is 4 Noses based out of Broomfield. Previously only distributed to the Front Range, 4 Noses in a short time has gained notoriety for their endless list of awesome brews. We have a little of everything by these guys from a mango wheat which is almost too drinkable to their GABF gold metal winning pumpkin beer “Pump Action”. Look for 4 Noses in 6pk cans in our cooler today and go down the rabbit hole of great beer.
Finally, I am pleased to welcome 2 Roads brewing from Stratford, CT (only about 10-15 min from where I grew up!). 2 Roads makes amazing beer, period. A hardworking brewery that only makes the best quality beer with no frills, 2 Roads is definitely worth the try. You can find their beer in a variety of formats and styles, but if you want to try it today start with either the No Limits Hefeweizen or Road 2 Ruin Double IPA, both available in 16oz single format in our single beer door.
