Check out their press release issued this week explaining all the details.

Verboten Brewing announces bottle releases and anniversary celebration

Three Bottle Releases Planned for February 1, 2014

Loveland, Colo. (Jan. 14, 2014) – Verboten Brewing has announced they will celebrate their one year anniversary over three days from January 30 to February 1. During the celebration Verboten will release for sale their first 22 oz. bottles: Killer Boots, their caramel porter; Mantooth, an imperial IPA; and Mountain Man, a bourbon barrel aged imperial dark rye ale.

On the first day of their three-day celebration they will offer a 5 beer, 4 course beer pairing dinner with a menu created by Fresh Plate Catering. Attendees will take home a commemorative glass and have the first opportunity to purchase their bottle releases, prior to sale to the public. Tickets to the dinner cost $55 per person.

Special beer releases, mostly limited barrel aged projects, will be tapped on both Friday and Saturday in their taproom at 1550 Taurus Court, Loveland. On Saturday, the 22 oz. bottles will be made available for public purchase on a first come, first served basis. The initial bottle release will be limited.

Verboten Brewing has received several accolades, including a gold medal at the 2013 All Colorado Beer Festival for their I’m Alright Jack. The Mountain Man is a version of this award-winning recipe, made with the addition of rye malts for an enjoyable, bready quality to the 11.8 percent alcohol by volume beer.

Verboten Brewing is an artisan brewery that uses ingredients “forbidden” by the Reinheitsgebot, the German Purity Law. Under the purity law, beers could only be made with four ingredients: barley, water, hops and yeast. Verboten’s beers take a unique twist on typical beer styles to create inventive beers that embrace a “foodie” inspiration.

In November 2013, Verboten Brewing experienced its first expansion with the addition of two 4-barrel fermentation tanks, increasing production capabilities. In the next year, Verboten plans to continue to expand production in order to release several standard beers in bottles and additional limited bottle releases over the course of 2014.

“It has been a great year,” says co-owner and head brewer, Josh Grenz. “We have been thrilled with the support from not only the Northern Colorado community but also the beer community at large. We are looking forward to a great 2014.”
