CMB’s signature beer. Ole 59er is a historic blend of flavors creating big, malty character with just the right amount of hops. Named for the gold seekers who stormed Colorado in the 1859 gold rush; the inaugural year for the Denver Broncos, and of course, the first graduating class of the Air Force Academy. Oh, and one more thing, the 59 Chevy was the last & best car designed by the legendary Harley Earl for General Motors. Approx. 5.2% ABV

On tap at the CMB brewery, heavily recommended by bartender and patron to my left. I found it quite disappointing and mediocre unfortunately. Of the four pints I had, this was my least favorite.

Pint at the Interquest location. Pours a dark, orangish brown, with a small, beige head. Orange peel, light coffee, caramel, and brown bread. Sweet and malty, with a mild roasted bitterness, and light hopping. Medium body, chalky, smooth, and clean. This is a very easy, malty amber ale. Quite nice...
