From Boulder Beer:

Boulder, COBoulder Beer Company, Colorado’s First Craft Brewery, just released a commemorative beer brewed in celebration of the Great American Beer Festival’s milestone 35th Anniversary in 2016.  Brewed in collaboration with the festival, the beer is based on a homebrew recipe of Charlie Papazian – GABF Founder and Past President of the Brewer’s Association.

“Back in 1982 when Charlie created the GABF, Boulder Beer toasted the occasion with a commemorative GABF ale,” said Boulder Beer President Jeff Brown.  “Thirty-five years later we’ve teamed up with Charlie again, tapping into one his current homebrew recipes, an India Pale Lager.”

The GABF 35th Anniversary IPL has big citrus and tropical notes of mango, melon and lemongrass from the complex assortment of hop additions, with a slightly sweet malt flavor for balance.  As a lager it also has a clean yeast profile providing a backdrop for the Citra and Equinox hops.

“We’re proud to be one of a handful of breweries to have participated in all 35 GABFs, and we look forward to many more!” said Jeff.

The IPL will be available in 22 oz bottles and on draft at select retailers throughout the Front Range in Colorado.
