Wynkoop Red Colorado Can


Wynkoop Brewing (Denver, CO) has recently introduced a new can for your rocky mountain drinking pleasure – Colorojo Imperial Red Ale. The amber ale uses a blend of four American hops added 6 different times during the brew, and a chuck of specialty grains.

A tea-colored beer with a dense latte-like head, Colorojo has a boozy nose of pine, orange marmalade and turbinado sugar. These aromas arrive atop flavors of caramel, alcohol, a note of chocolate, and more resin and citrus flavors…

Now available where ever you can snag these cans, ERP $8.99.

Style: Imperial Red Ale
Availability: 12oz cans, Draft

8.2% ABV, 65 IBUs

Wynkoop Launches Saison Named After Denver Street

Nearly a year in planning, Wynkoop’s Saison de Colfax is now on tap at the Denver-area Cheeky Monk locations and the company’s sister bar, Royal Hilltop in Aurora, CO. Named for Denver, Colorado’s Colfax Avenue.

Saison de Colfax features the wondrous gifts one expects to find in a saison: vibrant tropical, candy and pepper-spice aromas and flavors in a refreshing Belgian beer. But these typical saison gifts arrive with a tan head and a very subtle chocolate/cocoa note, in an almost opaque beer with a deep brownish-black color.

Style: Saison
Availability: Draft only. Denver area

5.8% ABV
