Fort Collins Brewery pours new brews

Fort Collins BreweryWondering what's new up at Fort Collins Brewery? Well here are some news tidbits fresh from their September 2008 brewsletter. There will be a new brew on tap this week and a returning favorite will pour again for another year.

Inara's Porter

With the changing of the seasons come a changing of the taps at the Fort Collins Brewery (FCB) in northern Colorado. FCB will be retiring their Hefeweizen for a while and replacing it with a brand new dark brew. Now pouring exclusively at the FCB tap room is their new Inara's Porter on a nitro tap. Porters make wonderful fall and winter season drinks and you can take some home in a growler if you are a Tap Club member (or you happen to talk nice to the server of the day).

FCB claims that Inara's Porter mixes well with cinnamon ice cream and makes an excellent beer float. I can attest to how good beer floats are as I've mixed ice cream with many porters and stouts in the past.

Doppel Bock is Back

FCB has been aging and conditioning one of their seasonal brews and preparing for the annual release of their Doppel Bock brew. FCB will be throwing a Doppel Bock Release Party on Friday, September 26th at their tap room. The party starts at 2pm and runs until 8pm. There will be live music, sizzling sausages and some specials on beer going on during the event. FCB's Doppel Bock will be available in stores soon after and will be available to warm your soul during the colder months.

Oktoberfest brew for Wilber's Total Beverage

One of Fort Collins' biggest liquor stores is celebrating a birthday and FCB will be supplying Wilbur's Total Beverage with an exclusive brew just for them. FCB's Wilburfest (Oktoberfest brew) will be on sale only at Wilbur's and at the tap room starting on October 6th. Wilbur's is the only liquor store where 22oz bombers of FCB Wilburfest will be sold. Fort Collins Brewery brews up a batch of this Oktoberfest brew each year for the annual birthday celebration.
