Last Friday, we brewed a Dubbel at Denver Beer Co. It was a glorious time. We then went over to Stranahan’s for a tour, had dinner at the Hornet, and made our way to TRVE for some more beers. Because, obviously, we needed those.
In the process, we forgot to name the beer.
We used all Belgian malts, including a Caramel Munich, a Caramel Vienne, and a small amountof Special B. Hops were German Northern Brewer for just a hint of bitterness. We dumped in about three tons (exaggeration) of Belgian Candy sugar, and set it to bubble with an Abby Yeast.
The beer is a rich amber/copper color, with dark fruits in the aroma and a balanced malty body. The hops impart just a kiss of bitterness to balance out the sweetness imparted by the candy sugar. ABV is moderate at around 6.3%. So, to get to the real reason you’re reading this.
What should we name our 2nd Anniversary beer? Leave your suggestions in the comments, and vote up the ones you like.
Here’s a video and a few pictures from our Friday extravaganza. Look for details on our party – February 21-23 – later this week.
Then we went to Stranahan’s! Yay!
Lastly, we stopped at TRVE. At this point.. well, we mostly stopped taking pictures. But it was Sydney’s birthday, and her cake was badass:
That’s it. Now, what names do you have for us?
