Better Weather Beers

As balmy temps return to the Rocky Mountains, the time is now to search out fresh new brews to pack along on your outdoor adventures. Here, we introduce you to four craft concoctions that pair perfectly with spring weather.

WeldWerks Brewing Company’s (weldwerksbrewing.com) Juicy Bits IPA has rocked to the top of our must-sip list this spring. The New England-style IPA grabs your attention the moment it hits the glass with a beautiful floral nose, hazy liquid and light, soft head. Sip it on aromatic spring nights post-run. On colder eves, rock on the deck with a six-pack of Crooked Stave ’s (crookedstave.com) Coffee Baltic Porter, brewed with freshly roasted Colorado coffee and packed with flavor. California’s Sierra Nevada Brewing (sierranevada.com) and Germany’s Brauerei Weihenstephaner (weihenstephaner.de/en) have over 1,000 years of experience between them so any beer the two collaborate on should grab you by the hops. Pick up a 12-pack of the limited release Braupakt Hefeweizen and savor a couple after an afternoon hiking the high country. Finally, fill the cooler with abomber of Casey Brewing & Blending’s (caseybrewing.com) Saison. Made with 100-percent Colorado ingredients, this barrel-fermented beauty exhibits a complex flavor not usually found in this style of beer.
