Hints of Pumpkin, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla contribute to this light, amber colored ale. Smooth and refreshing, you will be reminded of pumpkin pie.

17th Dam-versary Imperial Brown Ale. Well it’s been a long Dam time coming. After 17 years, we decided it was time to take a spin on our classic Sweet George’s Brown Ale by going big. Big malt balance with a chocolate backbone that’ll melt on your tongue. Smooth, dark brown and boozy, this is the kind of beer you want to hold tight on a winter’s night while sitting next to the fire, watching snowflakes the size of doilies fall from the sky. But be careful, it’s 8.5% ABV could screw up your plans for first chair in the morning. Cheers!
Brewed as a collaboration with the other DAM (Denver Art Museum) to celebrate the Passport to Paris exhibit which opened Oct. 27 and runs through February 9, 2014. “I see lots of light, sunshine, and faded blue skies in these paintings, and so I immediately thought that this should be a light, refreshing beer, yet complex and deep too, to represent the bright colors and deep shadows,” said Brewmaster Cory Forster. This is a steam beer with elements of both lagers and ales plus a hint of lemon. Learn more on our Passport to Paris webpage.
A very bold mouthful of IPA featuring 7 different hops added at 7 different times of the brew process for a medium-high ABV of right around 7%. Spicy grapefruit aroma leads the charge to a pile of spicy, earthy, and slightly citrusy hoppiness that totally dominates the subtle, yet complex, toasty-biscuity malt balance in this reddish-blonde ale. Info for the HOP FANS: Zythos, Simcoe, Chinook, Nugget, Columbus, Cascade, and Tettnang were used in the brew. Then, it was dry-hopped with more Simcoe, Columbus, and Chinook.
