Renegade Brewing Company (Denver) - Not all beer can be saved. Tears streamed down the faces of the Renegade crew yesterday as their latest batch of Ryeteous streamed down the drain. Due to equipment failure they were without a glycol chiller for two weeks which allowed some beer to sit warm on the yeast for much too long causing off flavors. So for the time being they are out of Ryeteous as they simply won't serve an inferior beer. Today they will brew Ryeteous again and have it back in a couple weeks.

International Stout Day (November 3rd) is quickly approaching. What will you be doing that day to celebrate? Check out the official Facebook event page for details.
