Vail Cascade resort and Spa – Jan 7th -9th 2014
FCB will be pouring: Double Chocolate Stout, Flemish Red, and Doppelbock
Kvass: The Russian Bread Beer!
A national drink in Russia traditionally brewed to yield a 1-2% abv. Just as Rocky Balboa showed up Ivan Drago, we one upped this style by increasing the abv to 3.8%. Unfiltered, an aroma of spice and raisin and the sweet finish are the result of pouring hot water over Rye bread,
truly creating Liquid Bread!
Smoked Rye Porter:
The next release in our limited Out of the Ashes series is an old world style of porter is appropriate as the season gets colder. With a fuller bodied brown porter, we included three types of rye: Chocolate, Flaked and Malted, to intertwine with Saaz hops to add a warming spice complimented by a supple smoke blend of cherry and apple woods. 5.5% ABV
FCB and Buckhorn Exchange are teaming up to host a beer dinner featuring beers in FCB’s limited release Out of the Ashes series during GABF week.
The dinner will feature 5 courses, each paired with an FCB brew. In addition to Rauchbier and Mesquite Chili Lime Ale (the first two installments of the Out of the Ashes smoke beer series), diners will enjoy FCB’s Doppel Bock, Major Tom’s American Wheat, and Double Chocolate Stout. The dishes to be paired with each beer have yet to be decided, but the exotic game for which The Buckhorn Exchange is known will certainly be included.
“The Buckhorn Exchange is a perfect fit for showcasing the Out of the Ashes series,” says FCB’s marketing director, Charles Stanley. “The game Buckhorn is famous for will pair excellently with the Out of the Ashes beers, and there’s the history to think about, too. Smoking grain over fire is among the earliest means of making malt, so smoke beer is really a very ancient style. It makes sense to partner with Denver’s oldest restaurant.”
In addition to a unique array of beers and food, guests will get to meet FCB’s brewers and The Buckhorn Exchange’s chef. Guests will also receive an Out of the Ashes specialty snifter as part of the cost of the dinner.
The dinner will take place on Thursday, October 10th in two seatings of 60 guests, the first at 6pm, the second at 8:30.
The cost of the dinner and the method of making reservations will be announced at a later time.
