A Belgian-style golden ale with intricate aromas of fruit & spice.
The usually tranquil St. Vrain River flows out of the Rocky Mountains, winding peacefully alongside our brewery. But, what at first appears benevolent can manifest into something fierce and mighty. Named after the river that brought our hometown's great flood in 2013, St. Vrain is designed to pay homage to classic Belgian Tripels while also adding a uniquely local twist. Colorado barley creates a subtle malt sweetness and American hops bring rich herbal and floral aromatics, both perfectly complimenting the warm spice and fruit character of the Belgian yeast. What at first looks innocent, light in color and body, suddenly swells up with a strong current of aroma and flavor, and a 9.3% ABV.
