From River North:
River North Brewery has added two new beers to its can lineup, Colorado IPA and Pils. Joining perennial favorites River North White and FarmHouse, these new additions are the perfect complement to the brewery’s lineup of #AdventureFuel canned exclusively for Colorado beer lovers.
Cans of both new beers hit store shelves throughout the state this week, and will be available year-round going forward. The brewery encourages all fans to submit their pictures of cans in the wild by tagging @rivernorthbrew and using the hashtag #AdventureFuel!
Colorado IPA is a classic American hop-bomb brewed with mountains of Citra, Amarillo, Azacca, Columbus and Cascade hops. Inspired by IPAs from both coasts, Colorado IPA strikes the perfect balance of bitter and floral hop character.
“We spent six-months perfecting this beer,” Founder Matt Hess said. “The hop blend captures exactly what I want in an IPA. This will be my go-to trail beer this summer, but until then, we have a month or two of good snow left to enjoy it on the slopes.”
The second new can, Pils, is a Rocky Mountain lager for all four seasons - fermented low and slow, the way it should be. While it takes more time to brew a proper Pilsner, that’s exactly what sets this beer apart.
“Inspired by a delightful afternoon at Kloster Andechs outside of Munich, I’ve been wanting to brew something like this for a while,” Lead Brewer Derek Goodman said. “As a bit of a traditionalist, this is the beer I pride myself on.”
Both new beers were canned last week, and have already starting delivering to stores, ensuring maximum freshness. In May, River North will also debut a mixed 12-pack of all four cans, providing the perfect variety for gatherings at home or in the great outdoors.
