I’m in Denver for the Great American Beer Festival, and I’ll try to post the award winners here on Saturday afternoon. But instead of waiting for me to drag out the laptop, head up to Iron Hill’s brewpub in Montgomeryville (1460 Bethlehem Pike) where you can follow the awards ceremony live on its big-screen simulcast.
Meanwhile, here’s what I’m liking so far:
Upstream Grand Cru. Never heard of this Nebraska brewery, but this tart bottle held its own against the likes of Jolly Pumpkin and Russian River.
Legacy Dear Abbey Dubbel. Love the name, love the sweet malt.
Coors Pre-Prohibition Lager. Philly locals tuned into the NLCS last night on the wide-screens that were strategically perched next to the Coors booth. Someone took a chance and sampled the yellow lager and turned to everyone else, saying, “Hey, this shit ain’t so bad.” It’s true - a Coors with actual flavor!
