Weekly Release 4.6.20
Here at CSA we are dedicated to bringing Colorado delicious, artisanal brews. We focus on quality at every step of our operation and distribution.
We will be implementing a “Weekly Release” through this blog feature on our website to present you with our new releases. Due to our present circumstances (COVID-19), we decided to open up our releases direct to the consumer.
PLEASE NOTE: Not all products are available in all territories at the onset of each week. This list is to act as a guide as to what we expect to be available pending freight delays, retailer purchases, routing schedules, etc… lots of moving pieces here, but we wanted to get you the best information we can. Pricing is not given as it is up to your independent retailer to set.
We hope you enjoy reading through some of these intros and descriptions! As we are a specialty distributor, you may need to request your local, independent retailer to bring on specific products.
You’d better believe it! Schillng has released two new products that really hit the mark- two low-cal, easy-drinking, apple-based booze packs that are flavorful, bold and refreshing!
Local Legend works off the same base as Excelsior, using a blend of heirloom bittersharp apples from France and England, then ferments it down to semi-dry to make for an easy-drinking, low-calorie cider option that still weighs in at a decent ABV.
On top of Local Legend, the innovative folks over at Schilling decided to try their hand in the seltzer category with their new release: Waveline. Instead of using beet sugar or maltose, they used apple juice! When have you ever had an apple-based seltzer?? What’s more, Waveline has added electrolytes to help keep your body performing throughout the day! With only 80 calories in each can, a fruit-based alcohol and added electrolytes, this seltzer from Schilling is sure to be a winner this summer…

Twelve Percent Imports
Here’s a mixed bag of goods… and not in the hit-or-miss way, either. Twelve Percent Imports curates well-known, envelope-pushing breweries in their portfolio with a twist of flare in each of their partners.
Stillwater Artisinal, Evil Twin and Omnipollo are the mainstays of the 12% book, but newcomers like Nightmare, Fat Orange Cat, Public Access, Abomination and Decadent have kept this book of brands relevant as consumers preferences shift to haze-juice-bros and sticky-stout-sweet-toothers alike.

Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project
Sabro Exploratory DIPA is done for the season to make way for our next dope IPA release. We changed it up a bit with a balanced adjunct-IPA. Mandarin Dream takes Mandarin citrus zest, the choicest hop blend and a dash of vanilla.
The beer is then double-dry hopped with Citra and Mandarin Bavaria to accentuate the adjuncts and give it an aromatic boost. A full-bodied yet extremely balanced beer with flavors of tropical fruit, citrus zest, and creamy vanilla.

Cosmos Coconut Vanilla Hazy IPA started off as a one-off release never to be brewed again but received such high praise that Ecliptic decided to bring it back.
“Lose yourself in the Cosmos while discovering multiple dimensions of this Hazy IPA. Together, aromatic notes of vanilla and coconut work harmoniously to reveal a flavor that reaches well beyond the universe.” This beer is deceivingly smooth and crushable at 8.0% ABV.
