Casey Brewing & Blending (Glenwood Springs) - [PRESS RELEASE] Casey Brewing and Blending is proud to announce the opening of their barrel cellar on August 9th from 11-5 PM at 3421 Grand Ave in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. Casey Brewing and Blending is a new brewery that focuses exclusively on Belgian-style beers fermented in vintage oak barrels using all Colorado ingredients. After a successful soft opening in early July, Casey Brewing and Blending is excited to release the next blend of Saison, a tart and dry Belgian-style beer made with 100% Colorado ingredients. “Our Saison is fermented and aged for 3 months in vintage oak wine barrels using a blend of yeast strains that create flavors that are unlike any other beer,” said Troy Casey, owner and blender of Casey Brewing and Blending. “Bright citrus notes, a pleasant tartness and a dry finish blend together to create the perfect summer beer, clean and refreshing.” Guests at the opening will be able to taste both the first and the second blends of Saison and learn how the oak barrel aging and blending process contribute to the flavors in the beer. Future releases will include versions of Saison blended with fresh Western Slope fruits such as sweet and sour cherries, peaches, plums and blackberries.
