Made with all German ingredients and brewed right here in Denver, Tivoli is a true re-creation of the beer first made over a century ago. The final Tivoli Brewmaster, who last brewed Tivoli in 1969, participated in this historic re-creation

Every batch of Tivoli is produced with only malt, hops and yeast shipped from Bavaria.

Tivoli beer is fermented with yeast from the Andechs Monastery located south of Munich. Very few breweries in the world, let alone the United States, have access to this ancient strain of Bavarian brewing yeast.

This unique Malt, which benefits from the ancient Bavarian acidulation techniques, is very rare to US brewers. From this process, the malt delivers its smooth Bavarian flavor.

The combination of using a historic copper system brought over from Bavaria and the ancient decoction brewing process delivers the “One of a Kind” Tivoli Beer malt flavor.

On tap @ Falling Rock. Clear golden pour with a dense white head. A fair amount of fruity esters and a lot of grassy hops. Mild bitterness on the finish, but there’s a nice malt character and sweetness. Maybe just a hint of skunk on the finish. Overall, though, it’s pretty nice.

This strikes me as more of a Bohemian Pilsner than a helles but I’m not going to split hairs. It’s golden in the glass, maybe ever so slightly hazed w/ a thic, white head. It has a nice grassy, herbal noble hop character to the nose. It’s fairly full bodied for the style with nice creamy carbonation. This hits all the marks for light lager for me, lots of noble hops, full bodied but not sweet and syrupy. I am into it.

This beer was awful. There isn’t another way to put it. Light and bland, a weird sour kind of finish. Just off in nearly every way.

January 29th, 2013 - This beer was a special treat, harkening back both to a Denver landmark - the old Tivoli brewery - and the German Reinheitsgabot, combining the two to produce a pure and purely Denver brew. The idea is neat, and while the resulting brew isn’t the best in the line, it’s not bad. The smell contains touches of graham and saltine crackers, so lots of biscuit and bread notes, but is otherwise a little flat. The flavor is enriched by notes of honey and a little lemon, but it’s almost too light, almost as if this was a ginger ale converted into a beer. Still, that might be close to what these ancestor beers were like, in which case, I support the historical "way-back" reach.

On tap, poured a clear deep yellow hue w/ a thin white head diminishing to a ring. Light bready aroma. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a light bitter finish. Tastes are hay and sweet white bread. Light to medium bodied, lively carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
