Brewery Gulch has more than its share of “people on another planet” but we are in close orbit when it comes to our namesake beer… we all really like it. Honoring the last commercial brewery in Brewery Gulch, we are happy to be producing this beer after a 121 year absence. The inclusion of four malts creates richness and super smoothness in our historic beer. Also, you will notice the hop additions which give it liveliness without being over done. That is the way they liked in here in the 1880’s and that’s the way we like it now. Smooth, hearty and satisfying, that is Copper City Ale.

Pint on tap. Nice beer, I think their best after tasting the sampler. Dark copper color, small head fades down to nothing. Strong bready flavors and toasty, yeasty flavors too. Still, I think higher ABV would improve the beer a lot, but I’m picky. This is just fine for a "flagship ale".

Pint at the brewery. Aroma: Medium+ malt, lightly roasted coffee. Moderate hop bitterness. Appearance: Clear, red-mahogany body. Medium+, creamy off white head. Medium amount of lacing. Taste: Brown sugar! Toasty coffee. Chocolate and medium amount of malt. Palate: Moderate body, light+ prickly carbonation. Moderate+ length on the finish. Ends on chocolate malt. Overall: The flavors verge on being those typical of a sweet stout. The flavors are big and wonderful!

GEOBRAU (188) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Head disapatted quickly, nice malty nose that gave way to a slight watery finish, hops supported but did not come through enough, aftertaste of roasted barley that was more pronounced as the pint progressed. An easy drinker but a little out of balance. If this beer had a tad more body I think I would have enjoyed it much more.

BillKismet (3845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Rich amber body with an ok head. Feint caramel grainyness tickles the nose along with a crisp hopping. Grain body profile that approaches the eminent Mac & Jac’s African Amber, but not much hop character. An ok amber, that falls a bit short.

annunz123 (948) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Pours red and relatively flat. Coppery taste (despite the name, probably not what they were shooting for) with some hop bitterness to the rescue. Watery finish with a fair amount of alcohol, which is surprising, since it’s not that strong at 4.9%. Not awful, but I expect better from a brewpub.

Maltajo (329) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 17, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Golden pour with a thin head. This tastes like a wastered down version of the Pale Ale. I am glad that I got a flight so I can try the whole round of this beer. Who knows what will be next? My stomach hurts!

Copper color pour with a thin foamy head. Aroma is light toasted malt and not much else. Flavor is the same. Hop presence is hardly noticeable. Non offensive, but why bother?

Peregrinari (148) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 13, 2010
This is a pretty nice beer.it is more a brown than anything els.i would say the aroma is nut with some mild hops and strong malt. Flavor is nut with some soil and a touch of sourness on the finish. There best beer.
