Big Beers & Breakfast

June 11th @ 9:30AM


If there are two things Fort Collins likes, it's breakfast and beer! So we are bringing those two together for our 1st Annual Big Beers & Breakfast Event! We will cap ticket sales at 50 people! Gratuity not included. Below are the details.

Featured Beers ( Four 5oz pours )
-Perennial Abraxas-Ale brewed with ancho chili peppers, cacao nibs, and cinnamon sticks 10% abv

-Deschutes Abyss-Stout brewed with licorice and molasses with 33% aged in oak and oak bourbon barrels. It’s dark. It’s deep. It’s mysterious. Aged in French Oak and Bourbon barrels, this special brew has immeasureable depth inviting you to explore and discover its rich, complex profile. The flavor of molasses and licorice draw you in further and further with each sip. The Abyss beckons. Enjoy the journey. 11% abv

-Great Divide Barrel-aged Yeti-Barrel Aged Yeti Imperial Stout has been aged for 20 months in used barrels from Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey, Colorado’s only whiskey maker. The rich and robustly roasted beer of 12.2% ABV and 75 International Bittering Units (IBUs) picks up flavors of oak, vanilla and whiskey through the extended aging process. These flavors add greater complexity to the already rich beer, while tempering its assertive nature. 

-Oskar Blues Barrel-aged Java Ten Fidy Imperial Stout – This titanic, immensely viscous stout is loaded with inimitable flavors of chocolate-covered caramel and coffee and hide a hefty 65 IBUs underneath the smooth blanket of malt. Ten FIDY (10.5% ABV) is made with enormous amounts of two-row malt, chocolate malt, roasted barley, flaked oats and hops. Ten FIDY is the ultimate celebration of dark malts and boundary-stretching beer.

-Wicked Weed Barrel Aged French Toast (Optional Free dessert pour not included in price 5oz)

Unlimited Eats! (not buffet) Homemade w/ Beer infused ingredients
-Biscuits and Sausage Stout Gravy
-Fried French toast w/ Barlywine caramel sauce
-Breakfast Burritos (egg , stout sausage, potatoes, cheese, peppers, bacon, sour cream) By request, smother Burrito in Sausage Stout Gravy or IPA Green chili
