Nothing will satisfy on a winter night more than a Colorado Native Imperial Porter. We brewed this dark beer with specially roasted malts from Colorado Malting Company, Colorado-grown hops from the Western Slope and the oldest strain of brewer’s yeast in the state. Our Rocky Mountain water originates from a natural water shed near the Berthoud Summit at 11,300 feet. A portion of this beer was aged in whiskey barrels, courtesy of our friends at Laws Whiskey House. Enjoy the rich chocolate flavors with hints of coffee, vanilla and roasted malt. This velvety, complex imperial porter pairs particularly well with grilled meats, caramelized vegetables and dark beefy stews.
