Will this heat wave ever end?! Probably, but our supply of nice cold craft beverages won’t! We have some new new brews and restocks from awesome suppliers. With only four weeks of summer left, we are starting to prepare for the fall-inspired flavors of beer, ciders and kombuchas.
Against the Grain out of Louisville makes its much anticipated return to Colorado! AtG has been making innovative, exciting beers since 2011. We first brought Against the Grain into Colorado way back in 2015. In this time, they have gained a large cult following because of their delicious beer and fun artsy labels. While their labels range from hilarious to potentially “controversial”, one thing stays the same: delicious, well executed, honest beer. Of course we are bringing in some old favorites like Citra Ass Down DIPA and Brown Note. Since they were founded on not making the same beer twice, we HAD to bring in something new. Their flagships will be accompanied by the brand spankin’ new beers Pool Boi Light and Live, Laugh, Love Passionfruit Sour! With all of their beer, two things are for certain: exemplary liquid and eccentric dope labels.
Our friends from Oklahoma brought us a brand new summer banger Pineapple Upside Down Cake.
This sour ale is brewed with pineapples, pecans, cherries and yellow cake! These guys CRUSH their sour beers and we are stoked to have this special release in house and going out this week. We also received more of Rainbow Sherbet, SLUSH Sour and Vape Tricks.
Introducing Guava Lime Sparkler! Their sixth out-of-state collaboration is with Sun King Brewing from Indianapolis for Breakside’s 10-year Anniversary year.
What is a Sparkler exactly? It’s a fruited sour ale blended with a house-made club soda. Looking for the perfect, light summer sipper? This is it! With big additions of guava and lime zest, this sparkler has bright tropical and citric notes.
Monday’s aren’t so bad when you have awesome beers like these to look forward to! Thank you to our lovely suppliers for sending us the GOODS!

An interesting look at the world of hop extracts, Tow Roads has brought us their new hazy, juicy IPA Everything But the Kitchen Sink. Because it is just that! Calling all hop heads – Phil Markowski just blew our minds. When they were making this brew using hops and advanced hop products, Phil threw in Everything But The Kitchen Sink including Cascade Hop Extract, Comet Hop Hash, Citra Lupulin Powder, Hallertau Blanc Hop Distillate, T-90 pellets from Cascade, Centennial, Amarillo, Mosaic, Simcoe, Galaxy hops!
From the genius brewing mind of Phil Markowski, the souring wizard, Area Two is a sour, barrel-aging and experimental brewery from Two Roads Brewing Company in Connecticut. We got both of the Synopsis varieties and the Twoquila both in 16oz. cans.
Twoquila is the Persian Lime Gose from Two Roads that has been brewed with agave and aged in authentic tequila barrels from Jalisco, Mexico. It is perfect for any fiesta.
The Synopsis series is for all of the wild ale lovers in your life. Sour, juicy and delicious these are offered in 2 packs to split with the sour head in your life.
From Eugene, Oregon we have another awesome drop from Oakshire! We are SO EXCITED that “No Ghosts” is included with this drop. The neon green brew that tastes of sour tangerine and orange arrives to our doors in Colorado. This sour ale is the thing of your neon green dreams.
From Penrose, CO we have some refreshed C Squared cans available. They never add sugar or sulphates and produce delightful and original blends of cider that are crisp and refreshing in a variety of flavors. Brewed right here in Colorado, they have been our proud partners for a long time.
Welcome to July! We hope that you had a safe, amazing Independence Day Weekend. It’s hard to believe that 2020 is half way over, and we have faced all of the challenges that this year has brought head on. We at CSA have been keeping on the grind to keep the craft beverage industry alive despite new challenges and adapting to the new normal.
Summer is in full swing and we’re ready for the summer crushers and patio pounders. Temperatures are getting up to 90◦s on a regular basis and we are bringing in crisp beverages to keep you cool and refreshed.
We are teaming up with Gruvi to offer their amazing non-alcoholic beverages to new areas and expand their current reach across the great state of Colorado. Gruvi‘s mission is to provide delicious, non-alcoholic beers for those who choose alcohol-free drinks that still taste AMAZING! They focus on health and inclusivity in the beverage world.

It is the first week of Summer and we are pumped for all the new limited summer releases coming down the pipeline.
Last week we were BUSY with our first drop of The Alchemist hitting the stores in Colorado for the first time! Focal Banger and Heady Topper made a SPLASH in our state and we still have some going out on route this week for the accounts we service on an every other week basis.
CSA Distributing has some new goodies that will be hitting the street this week from Crooked Stave, La Cumbre Brewing and Untitled Art.
We received a VERY LIMITED drop of Papa Bear’s Peachy Blues. Made in secret from and in honor of our founder and OG bossy bear, Chad. This is a spontaneous golden ale blend with fresh peaches and blueberries. Celebrate Dad with family and Peachy Blues.
The next in the Project Dank series is here! Project Dank: Summer Edition is the newest release from the hop laboratory down in New Mexico. Each recipe is created with a different blend of hops and techniques but always delivers on a delicious flavor profile.
New from Untitled Art: CBD Sparkling Water! No sugar. No Gluten. Only 2 calories. The organic, flavored sparkling water offers clean, crisp, clear ingredients. Hop Culture has reviewed this seltzer as a “Must Have”. Read their article here.
Stay tuned for next week’s CSA Weekly Release Blog. Stay healthy and drink well friends.
As a small, family-owned and operated, independent distributor, we take pride in the work we do as it is truly a labor of love. Our small company has been adapting best we can to these crazy times and it’s weeks like this that keep the fires burning and keep us plugged into what’s happening with our friends around the country… Most all of our supplier partnerships started behind tables at festivals, conversations on beer blogs or at industry conferences and events. We enjoy working with the family of artisanal producers we’ve built over the years and always look forward to not only sharing a beer with them, but getting their wares to Colorado.
Yes, Colorado makes some amazing beers, but we find it important to keep connections with our colleagues around the country and world so we can stay up to date with all the happenings in our rich world of libations. We see these releases as a way to stay connected and informed. It provides a window outside of Colorado to see what big waves are being made in Maine, Vermont, Iowa, Illinois, California, Oregon, Washington and so many other states that are world-class beer producers. It also helps out the friends we’ve made in the industry by providing them with a little bit of a lifeline during these tough times.
As always, we appreciate the support of our community both here in Colorado and in the rest of the United States. Without that community at home and abroad, we wouldn’t be here today, doing what we love so much! Thank you!
Leave it to the dynamic team at Two Roads to keep new, exciting things coming down the line! Always on trend with their releases and on point with their execution, the crew at Two Roads has a few new things to tickle our fancies. The first two releases are full time SKUs and will be available moving forward: Wee Demon Low-Cal IPA and a continuation of their H2Roads lineup finally makes it into an H2Roads Variety 12-pack with a new flavor to boot!
Wee Demon Low-Cal IPA is a beer that’s light on calories and bursting with flavor. Designed to be a full-bodied IPA experience with only a fraction of the caloric content,Wee Demon could not have come sooner! Sitting at home for two weeks now, people are starting to look for healthier options without sacrificing flavor or body… this is it!
Don’t drink seltzer made from lab-extracted “natural flavors.” Eat whole foods and drink whole fruits with H2Roads.
The third and final release for this week is Hay-Z-Boy, the first IPA in their limited release rotation for 2020. Hay-Z-Boy fits perfectly into that post-modern IPA category as it is a little sweet, a little hazy and falls right in the middle of that tropical/citrus/earthy flavor profile. It’s what the people want, so they should have it! Let them drink haze!
It’s been quite some time since our friends at Untitled Art sent us some beer, but we are stoked about this drop. Two Milkshake IPA’s and a Peach Sour are just what we need in times like these! These are perfect for porches and sunshine.
Say what? Lush IPA now in 4 pack 16oz cans? Sure is! Lush IPA was one of the first beers to ever feature Lupulin Hop Powder and it has gained quite the reputation since its inception way back in 2017. We can go on and on about what we love about this beer from the consistency of the liquid to the beauty of the printed slick can. Fortunately enough, nothing has changed with its move to 16oz cans and for that we thank them. This format is extremely limited and there are only 60 cases for the entire state.
If you have never had a Une Annee Fruited Sour, you are really missing out! The fruit is what shines in the Le Seul series. These beers are perfect for the consumer that loves a little bit of beer in their fruit.
The following products will be available at select retailers beginning this week. Remember to check back on Monday afternoons to see what we have coming down the line each new week!
Next week is sure to be big with some Lawsons, Toppling Goliath and Untitled Art expected to hit the Colorado market!

This beer is a perfect crusher for hangin out in a park, or on the back porch. We didn’t make a lot and we expect this particular release to go quick! A lot of people are going to be after this release, so get what you can. What we have is what we have, so get it while we have it in stock!
