Crazy Mountain Amber Ale

crazy.mountain.amberCrazy Mountain Amber Ale was named after a mountain on the Selvy Family’s ranch in Central Colorado. “Loco Mountain” translates from Spanish to “Crazy Mountain,” and this beer is crazy good. This delightfully floral American style Amber Ale displays a wonderful balance while still maintaining a profound hoppy goodness. We load this beer with a ridiculous and obscene amount of West Coast hops that are added late in the boil, resulting in a hoppy beer without any bitterness.

Crazy Mountain Snowcat Coffee Stout

image_thumbThis winter brew is an ode to the colorful characters – The Midnight Marauders – that flatten snow in the wee hours, as they ascend without fear into the darkness. For them, we took some artisanal roasted local coffee and brewed it up in a stout made up of a complex blend of roasted malts. Use this ale in the AM or the PM, to get you through the winter months and don’t forget to toast the snowcat drivers who craft the perfect corduroy for first tracks.

Crazy Moutain Hookiebobb IPA

crazymnt1-576x600In the 1960s, before Vail Village was paved and closed to vehicles, hookiebobbing” referred to those committed fools who, while on skis,  grabbed onto the bumper of passing cars to tow them up to the lifts. Our IPA is a Colorado approach to the American take of an English classic. Three aggressive yet floral American hops and one hop from Down Under team together to make a bright, citrusy and floral India Pale Ale. A deep caramel malt helps to balance the bitterness of the hops and lets the complex hop bill shine.

 

Crazy Mountain Horseshoes and Hand Grenades Extra Special Bitter Ale

The instructor told him, “Close only counts in horse shoes and hand grenades.” Our American ESB showcases a complex maltiness and unique hop character. Chinook and Amarillo hops coupled with 5 different types of malt make this beer one-of-a-kind. Enjoy this ale when close just won’t cut it.

 

Crazy Mountain Mountain Living Pale Ale

adsfaOur easy-drinking Pale Ale’s namesake truly represents life in the mountains. The Colorado mountain lifestyle is laid back, fulfilled and relaxed. Just like the meadow scene on the can, nature is summer’s backdrop for all outdoor fun: hiking, rafting, mountain biking and horseback riding. We utilize two types of American hops in such a way that we put the flavor of these hops center stage and let their bitterness fade into the background. The hop forward character of this beer is represented not in its bittering qualities, but in the unique, fruit forward flavor of two new and somewhat experimental American hop varieties. Enjoy this beer with a fresh approach to how a Pale Ale expresses its inner hoppiness.

 

Crazy Mountain Lava Lake Wit

image_thumb (1)Lava Lake is a hidden little gem off of Highway 131 on the drive to Steamboat Springs from Vail. This idyllic swimming hole is the first place Doobie, the chocolate brewery labrador, learned how to swim. This Ale is our take on a classic Belgian Wit Beer. To make this beer unique, we add un-malted wheat, rolled oats, two varieties of classic European hops, chamomile, curacao orange peel, coriander, grains of paradise, and a rare yeast strain from the Old Country. This is a beer that can be enjoyed year-round, whether on the slopes on a beautiful bluebird day, or lazily fly fishing in Lava Lake.
