Boulder Beer offers Flashback 30th anniversary ale

Colorado's First Microbrewery Releases 30th Anniversary Commemorative Brew, Flashback Anniversary Ale

Boulder, CO - 4/29/09 - Paying homage to their roots and toasting their milestone 30th Anniversary, Boulder Beer Company will celebrate by releasing their new Flashback Anniversary Ale in May. They will tap the first kegs on Tuesday, May 5th at a roll-out party at the brewery from 4:00 - 7:00pm. The commemorative brew will be available in 6-packs and on draft through September in all markets where Boulder Beer Company brands are sold.

An India Brown Ale, Flashback is single-hopped with five separate additions of Cascade hops. Citrusy with a prominent hop aroma, Flashback finishes clean, crisp and dry, with dark roasted flavors from the biscuit and chocolate malts perfectly complimenting the bountiful Cascades. Highly hopped like an IPA but dark and roasty like a Brown, Flashback is a very sophisticated and unique brew.

Boulder Beer Company plans to serve Flashback Anniversary Ale at events throughout the summer, culminating with their 30th Anniversary Celebration which is planned for mid-September.

Flash back to 1979 and you'll find two professors at the University of Colorado in Boulder longing for the full-flavored tastes of the British ales they had grown to love while traveling overseas. Testing the entrepreneurial waters with a little project called a microbrewery, they began brewing and selling a few of their own. There begins the tale of Boulder Beer Company, Colorado's First Microbrewery. From the original Bitter, Porter and Stout recipes that founded the brewery to their exciting new releases, Boulder Beer continues to uphold their tradition of innovation in brewing.
