Inoculation Method(s): Solera
Description: JUMPSEAT starts with our base Golden Sour aged for 8-12 months in stainless. Once the base beer is finished, we pull a small amount out of our ever-changing solera and transport the beer to another tank along with a variety of hops. The beer sits on the hops for 3-4 days, extracting only the bright and citrusy character from the hops. While the combination of hops shifts from batch to batch, we typically select hops that will play well with our wild-yeast derived peach and apricot character, creating a beer that is just the right balance of hoppy and sour - perfectly crushable. Hop character will change or diminish over time, therefore we don't recommend cellaring and instead suggest you drink this one fresh.

Inoculation Method(s): Solera
Description: EJECTOR begins as JUMPSEAT, our single dry-hopped sour. Once the base beer is finished, we pull a small amount out of our ever-changing solera and transport the beer to another tank along with a variety of hops. The beer sits on the hops for 3-4 days, extracting only the bright and citrusy character from the hops. After roughly half of the beer is bottled to make Jumpseat, there is a second dry-hop addition and the remaining beer rests for an additional 3-4 days, creating more grassy, earthy flavors. We like to think of EJECTOR as JUMPSEAT'S Big Brother: intense hop character matched with puckering acidity. Hop character will change or diminish over time, therefore we don't recommend cellaring and instead suggest you drink this one fresh.

Three years in the making. OXCART is our first 100% spontaneous/coolshipped blend of 1, 2, and 3 year old barrel aged beer. Similar in method and in the style of the great, traditional Gueuze of Belgium. Notes of hay and stonefruit, with complex layers of funk. Some sweetness carries through each sip along with pleasant yet assertive acidity, ending with a dryness on the back of the palate. This beer is expected to age for many years, but is ready to drink now. Complexity will only continue to develop with time in the bottle.
750mL bottle, cork and cage - $30/bottle
LIMIT 2 BOTTLES PER PERSON
Draft Magazine just named this one of the Top 25 Beers of the Year. After nearly a year, we're bringing back STARGATE: PEACH RYE WHISKEY. This time, using 100% whole fruit. from Palisade, CO. 2.5 pounds per gallon of perfectly ripe Cresthaven peaches from our family-owned orchard were added directly to the beer, allowing a secondary fermentation inside of a wet Laws Whiskey House Secale Rye Barrel. Intense peach on the nose with a soft, round mouthfeel and beautiful acidity.
750mL bottle, cork and cage - $28
LIMIT 1 BOTTLE PER PERSON
Adelitas Cocina y Cantina will be on site serving breakfast tacos, and we'll have Corvus Coffee to keep you warm. Please note that bottle limits are subject to change.

“Their work nationally has been really exceptional. They are committed to putting on great festivals based that bring awareness to, often overlooked, men’s health issues,” states Dickinson. “It was the right fit for everyone and they’ve been amazing partners to work with year after year.”
