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!

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…
Is every day Friday? Lately it seems that way, but we must assure you, it is not… For all of those days that need to be made into a Friday, Downeast has you covered with their Aloha Friday!
A fresh pineapple infused cider that drinks more like a mimosa than a cider, this unfiltered, unhinged fruit-forward tropical cider is just what the doctor ordered! We also have more Grapefruit in house! These two fruit-forward ciders are perfect for the springtime- whether you’re crunching through spring snow or waltzing through a spring bloom, these ciders are delicious and a perfect pairing for this time of year!
