Going to America on Tap? You Can Try Brews You Can’t Get Anywhere Else
America on Tap is coming up this Saturday, May 2nd from 2p - 5p at Washington Park in Fort Collins and excitement is "brewing" for what is going to be a great way to kickoff the brew season in Northern Colorado.
You saw us mention last Friday the list of the brands that will be at America on Tap this weekend, and we teased how there will be beers tapped on Saturday that you can't try anywhere else. Well, we now have the list of the beers that you'll be able to try for the first time and when they will be tapped so you can have your America on Tap schedule all put together!
Here is what you'll be able to experience for the first time at America on Tap:
Experience the Bourbon County Stout from Goose Island Brewery. The nose of the beer is a mix of charred oak, chocolate, vanilla, caramel, and smoke. It's aged in Bourbon Barrels to give it that unique taste.
The second special tap of the day will be a Smoked Porter from Alaskan Brewing. The dark, robust body and pronounced smoky flavor of this limited edition beer make it an adventuresome taste experience. Alaskan Smoked Porter is produced in limited "vintages" each year on November 1 and unlike most beers, may be aged in the bottle much like fine wine.
Black Bottle Brewery will have a special tap available at 3:30pm and it is so special and secretive...that we can't disclose it here. We'll keep you posted on what they'll be serving up to the masses!
The last special tap of the day comes to use from Epic Brewery as they have America on Tap patrons try out their "Smoked and Oaked" brew! Smoked cherry wood malt brings a smoky sweetness to the caramel malts and a bit of peat flavor with a Belgian-style yeast. The entire batch aging in the whiskey barrels nicely dries out the perceived sweetness of the caramel malt leaving an almost scotch like taste.
Tickets are still available for America on Tap so you can try these special taps above, along with over 50 brands of beer that will be served up for your taste buds! Get your tickets ahead of time for only $35 as the prices increase to $40 the day of the event at the gate!
