Loveland Aleworks is kicking off the holiday season with their first ever bottle release. Barrel-Aged Colorado Grand Cru is a full-bodied Belgian style Abbey Ale, aged in red wine barrels for 16 months that weighs in at 9.5% ABV. It has a deep mahogany hue, vanilla, banana and ripe cherry aromas with a huge spicy oak character that it pulled from the barrels during its long rest. The beer will be released in 750 mL bottles only at the brewery at 12:00 PM on Saturday, November 26th while supplies last.
November 26th is Small Business Saturday and downtown Loveland is packed with locally owned and operated establishments. It is the perfect time to come out and support your local and independent breweries, shops, restaurants, and bars. Loveland Aleworks will be offering deals on their apparel, glassware, and 32 oz Crowler Cans the entire weekend.
The brewing team at Aleworks has been filling barrels since opening over 4 years ago. Brewers Nick Callaway and Paul Klapper fill as many barrels as they empty .They will continue to release these fine aged ales as they become ready. The brewery has upwards of 3000 gallons of beer aging in oak barrels.
