CSA Weekly

8.3.2020

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 Brewery

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.

Prairie Artisan Ales

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.

Breakside Brewery

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!

CSA Weekly Release

Weekly Release 4.20.20

It’s a BIG week over here at CSA. 

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!

Two Roads Brewing Company

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 IPand 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! 

It’s also great that Two Roads released H2Roads Variety 12-packs as well! With the addition of a new flavor, this twelve pack packs real fruit into a low-calorie seltzer that includes three each of four flavors: Cranberry LimeGrapefruitRaspberry and now Black Cherry!

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!

Fremont Brewing

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.
