The first all-female-brewed collaboration beer in Colorado, brewed for Colorado Craft Beer Week, will be tapped at The Mayor of Old Town Saturday March 23rd (TIME TBD) .
Ellegance is a delicious Belgian-style brown ale brewed with Simpson’s Golden Promise malt and specialty malts and a blend of hops including Nelson Sauvin, Motueka and Centennial. All fermented with a Belgian yeast. Elegant and highly quaffable, the 5% ABV beer features a creamy beige head, a glorious tea/garnet color, aromas of fruit and hops, flavors of toast and light caramel, hints of spice and a refreshing, lingering hop bite on its finale.
The project was headed up by Wynkoop’s Bess Dougherty, along with Natalie Lesko of Funkwerks, Sydney Skilken of Denver’s TRVE Brewing, Linsey Cornish of Odell Brewing, Reva Golden from Twisted Pine, Ashleigh Carter of Prost Brewing and Melissa Antone and Sara Ferber from Avery Brewing. The Denver branch of Brewers Supply Group donated the base malt for this one-time-only, super-limited-release beer.
