The Beer

Our brew system was small, very small. We've upgraded, but it's still small...a 3.5 BBL system. We plan on capitalizing on this by creating very original small batches of beer. We plan on keeping six regular beers on tap and having fun with any others. I want to be able to create whatever comes into my head the night before and whatever someone has convinced me is worth trying. Folks will be encouraged to come in with recipes and/or ingredients...we will do our best to give them a try.

Here are the beers on tap at the moment:

Our Flagship Beers:

"Steffie's Heffe": YOU DRANK IT ALL! (will be back soon)

A refreshing Hefeweizen slightly bittered with Galena hop for a light citrus kick and the traditional floral and citrus tones of Hallertau Mittelfruh. The Bavarian yeast gives this light ale some pleasant clove and banana notes which we accent with late addition orange peel and coriander. Our Bavarian friend Steffie, the beer’s namesake, has vetted this beer and she has ensured us that,  “Es ist sehr net”. ABV: 5.5%  IBU: 18

"Very Nice Pale Ale": Easy drinking ale. Not intensely hop forward, but dry hopped enough with Amarillo, Citra and Mosaic hops to make it interesting.  The boil includes a “Very Nice” bittering with Galena and Cascade hops and then balanced with late addition of Mosaic hop. Well balanced, designed to be no more, or no less, than “Very Nice”. ABV: 6.0%  IBU: 33

"Royal We IPA": Huge hop forward character delivered with a double dry hop of Amarillo, Citra and Mosaic.  This provides a beautiful grapefruit and orange essence characteristic of the American IPA. The body is kept light with only a small amount of crystal malt to allow the hop bouquet and flavor to shine through.  Early additions of Cascade and Galena hops balance out the hop forward with an appropriate bitter background. ABV: 7.2%  IBU: 70

"Monk's Phunk" (Belgian Abbey Ale): Strong ale named after a strong woman!  Our brewer’s dear mother! This recipe is crafted as a tribute to the tradition the Monk’s started in Belgium over a thousand years ago. It includes lots of Munich, various crystal malt, and a shot of chocolate malt, giving it a deep burgundy color and a heavenly rich caramel taste that literally would bring people to cathedrals in Europe. It has enlightening fruity esters from the Belgian yeast as well as divine sweetness from a gallon (12 lbs) of wild Colorado honey per barrel. ABV: 8.0%  IBU: 25.1

"Fuggly & Brown": Mono-hopped and named after the earthy and mildly citrus hop, Fuggles. A malty beer with low hop aroma and bitterness, brewed in the tradition of an English brown. Some slight fruity esters. Traditionally, brown sugar would be used, but we stuck with our locally sourced honey instead, lightening up the body and contributing some slightly floral notes. ABV: 5.8%  IBU: 23.6

"The Logical Fallacy": This beer challenges the Logical Fallacy that says if a beer is a stout, it shouldn’t be bittered. We brew it with generous hop additions of Summit and Northern Brewer.  This hop bill is challenged with the smokiness of black patent malt, coffee tones of chocolate malt, and a decadent mixture of caramel malts.  This is a unique stout that will make you look deep into this beer, and lose yourself in its complicated malty taste and intense oil like blackness. ABV: 7.0%  IBU: 65

Premium / Limited Beers:

"Very Nice Mountain Rose Summer Saison": You wake up early to get on the trail, coffee in hand, dog in passenger seat; you pull out of your driveway and head upward.  With the last vestiges of civilization far behind you, you finally pull into the trailhead. The dog goes nuts!  With your first breath of thin, crisp, fresh mountain air you notice hundreds of small, 5 petal, pink flowers.  You may even see the bright red bulbous rose “hip” fruit on the plant. This is Rosa Woodsii, The Wild Mountain Rose!  This saison was “dry hopped” with both the petal and the hip which were painstakingly wild foraged from our mountains by The Wild Vitality Homestead. The saison yeast utilized in this brew adds lots of deep fruity ester and subtle peppery tones to the floral rose petal and slight raisin from the rose hip.  Rose petals have been used historically to cool the body making this ale as refreshing as the first breath when you escape traffic and the crowds into the pure bliss of the ‘tains!  Come have one after your commune with the eternal.  ABV: 6.5% IBU: 27

"Sin-Ger": 1/2 Steffie's Heffe, 1/2 Ginger Ale...a refreshing blend!

Watch for...

Seasonals: We love all the seasons Colorado has to offer and will devote beers to them as we go. Seasonal beers will feature ingredients available during the season they represent and we will try to convey the feeling the season imparts.

“Crazy Local” Brews: These will be brews dreamed up by local patrons from across the bar. We will try our best to brew up what our customers can dream up. Find a ton of wild strawberries? Bring ‘em in! Spruce fronds? Bring 'em in! These brews will be about our neighbors participating in the Very Nice Brewing Company.
