COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our third flagship beer is “59’er”. Colorado’s gold rush was in 1859. The water ways in Arvada were created by the 59ers which lead to Arvada being a farming capital of Colorado. 59’er is a dark, German Lager, brewed in the Schwarzbier style. It has hints of roast malt and caramel in the nose and is medium bodied with smooth malt flavors, followed by a touch of hop bitterness. This beer will be very popular with drinkers of Porters and Stouts. It has slightly more roast notes then a Stout, but less than a Porter. This dark beer will ensure that drinkers of dark beers, will have a choice at our tasting room, and will ask for it by name at their local pub. 59’er has won more awards than any other beer we brew. The ABV is 5%.

GilesTH (8) - Colorado, USA - FEB 5, 2014 does not count
It’s a decent beer, but it needs more complexity. It’s inconsistent in flavor, and tends towards the watery side, even with proper carbonation.
