Today the first kegs of Ellegance, a very special all female beer collaboration taps today.
Brewed especially for Colorado Craft Beer Week by a collection of women in the local craft beer scene. The collab features Wynkoop’s Bess Dougherty, Natalie Lesko of Funkwerks, Sydney Skilken of Denver’s TRVE Brewing, Linsey Cornish of Odell Brewing, Reva Golden from Twisted Pine, Ashleigh Carter of Prost Brewing and Melissa Antone and Sara Ferber from Avery Brewing. Ellegance is the first all female collaboration in Colorado.
Elegant and highly quaffable, the 5% ABV beer features a creamy beige head, a glorious tea/garnet color, aromas of fruit and hops, flavors of toast and light caramel, hints of spice and a refreshing, lingering hop bite on its finale.
