Westbound & Down Brewing Company Colorado Pale Ale Beer

House IPA | COLORADO PALE ALE 

This American IPA has a bright citrus aroma from dry hopping with Cascade, Simcoe, Centennial, and Citra hops. They are balanced with formidable malt flavor from Maris Otter malt.

ABV 6.9%

 

WESTBOUND DOUBLE IPA*

We did not hold back on this DIPA. A ludicrous amount of Vic Secret, Galaxy, Mosaic, and Cryo Mosaic hops pack big aromas of tangerine, blueberry, papaya, and other tropical fruits. Even with all of those hops you do get a nice sweet biscuit malt profile, that ends in a clean dry finish.

ABV 9.3%

Westbound & Down Brewing Company Belgian Pale Ale

WESTBOUND PORTER

An American Porter with an abundantly sweet chocolate and molasses aroma. Mild roastiness, chocolate character, and notes of toffee and biscuit come together in this well-bodied brew.

ABV 6.6%

BARLEYVIBES

Our English-style Barleywine showcases notes of toffee, dried fruit, caramel and Fig Newtons. The huge quantity of Maris Otter malt and a long boil make for layers of intense malt complexity. A wintertime sipper for cold nights and snowfall. Barley, vibes, Life.

ABV 10.6%

GENERAL MACARTHUR’S SCOTCH ALE

COMMON THREADS V.1 IPA

After nearly 3 years of making IPAs, our various rotating IPA series often follow a logical train of thought, a common thread. In this first rendition of this series we are working with wheat malt, and a blend of three base malts (Maris, Golden Promise, and Pilsner Malt), combined with a floral and tropical hop aroma coming from Galaxy and Amarillo.

ABV 6.3%

“MAKE IT TO THE AFTER PARTY” HOPPY SESSION BEER|

Forever united on October 13th, 2018.

DON’T HASSLE THE ‘HEF’

The best of Bavaria in a glass… this Hefeweizen style is an easy drinking wheat beer with a nose of cloves, banana, and a citrus finish on the palate.

ABV 5.25%

Westbound & Down Brewing Company Seven Sisters Stout Colorado Beer

SAISON ROSÉ

Our Solera Saison racked on second use balaton cherries that were previously macerated with our golden sour to make FruitSquad + balaton cherries. Look for soft cherry, melon, and raspberry with floral, rose-petal-like aromas, honeysuckle and white pepper in an amazingly refreshing fall beverage.

ABV 6 .0%

BELGIAN PALE

Westmalle Trappist Ale yeast gives this beer distinctive coriander and black pepper spice notes, yet a cold fermentation makes it approachable and a well balanced beer. Brewed with a blend of Pilsner malt and Double Roasted Crystal malt, they give it a nice toasty, biscuity, and honey flavors.

ABV 5.5%

GONNA BE A GOOD DAY!
A WEST COAST PILSNER

Brewed with our great friends at Central Coast Brewing. This beer is everything we love about crisp, snappy pilsners with West Coast hop character to boot. Citra and Mosaic dry-hopping flirts with IPA-like aromas, but, with easy-drinking lager character, it can turn into an all-day affair. “Don’t be silly, I’m still gonna send it!” -Larry the Enticer

SPECIAL HERBS VOL 1. FRUITED AMERICAN SOUR W/ LAVENDER**

Another special blend with our friends at Goed Zuur! Components from 6 brew days from 4 different barrels consisting of red wine fruited golden sour, apricot saison, Solera Saison, and sauvignon blanc barrel aged golden sour with just a touch of fresh-picked lavender from John’s herb garden. Floral, fruity, and totally dangerous.

THE OTHER ANNIVERSARY IPA

To celebrate two years, we revisited some of our favorite hop combinations from the last year, Enigma, Idaho #7, and Equaknot, and backed up this tropical fruit salad with our favorite base malts, Maris Otter and German Pilsner Malt, and a touch of wheat. Drink now to celebrate, because this one won’t last long.

ABV 6.4%

 

BURT’S BLONDE: DRY-HOPPED AMERICAN BLONDE

Complex, yet approachable, this blonde balances malt crunch with nuanced tropical hop aromatics which are dried out with a healthy dash of Colorado honey. Look for easy drinking goodness with tropical fruit and flowery aromatics from Clark’s wildflower honey.

ABV 4.7%

SEVEN SISTERS STOUT

An American Dry Stout that is full flavored with notes of espresso and dark chocolate, yet remains very sessionable. Brewed with Roasted Barley, Chocolate, Brown, Black, and Maris Otter malt. These malts provide a complexity of flavor, resulting in a nice dry finish.

COLORADO PRIDE:OUR STATE’S PALE ALE

This Pale Ale was brewed with the finest Colorado ingredients! The malt was provided by our buddies over at Root Shoot Malting in Loveland, hops supplied by Hire Wire Hops in Paonia, yeast from Brewing Science Institute in Woodland Park, and fresh Rocky Mountain water. The hops help provide a nice floral nose with hints of rose water and pine. Biscuit and toasty notes first hit the palate letting it finish with a slight sweet and pine dry finish.
