about 8.5% and tasting nutty and smokey from the malt and piñon nuts in the beer. The next beer was a cloudy organge double Belgian IPA with chokecherry syrup. The bitterness, hoppiness, and yeastiness of the beer was really cut through with a sweet and kinda tart berry flavor from the chokecherry. Finally, the last beer was reddish brown, smelled heavily of juniper and most people said that it taste like the smell of the trails at Palmer Park. The beer was dominated by juniper, but also had subtle pine flavors and I couldn't really taste the sumac berries, but there were sumac berries in there too. Maybe other people could.

I can't fill you in on everything as that would take up too much space. I'd like to be able to tell you all about the homebrewers that created the beers and helped brew them at Rocky Mountain Brewery but all that information was in the catalog where each person was featured as an artist in a space where the 'exhibition is the bar' and 'the gallery wall is the tap handle.' You can however, download the menu here thanks to GOCA, who sponsored the project and has plenty of information about it on their site too. And, if you missed this one, you'll need to make sure to not miss out on October 29th.
