AC Golden, Hidden Barrel Collection
Release Date Peche & Apricot: May 26, 9:00 AM
Regular Price: $21.99 Each
The time is finally upon us. After many hiccups and over the last few long months of waiting, we are finally ready to announce the arrival of the first bottles from AC Golden’s Hidden Barrel Collection of beers: Peche and Apricot! These are the highly talked about “sour” beers that have been steadily gaining interest from a wide group of individuals (Peche was actually awarded a Silver medal in this year’s World Beer Cup). Aged in oak barrels with an average of over 100 pounds of fresh Colorado fruit, these beers are precise with acidity, highly complex and highly expressive of the fruit in which they were aged on.
We want to thank all those who have expressed interest; these bottles will be well worth the wait. While we would love to be able to allow bottles to go home with you today, with the high level of demand and extremely scarce nature of these beers, sales will be pushed off and begin on Saturday May 26th. There will be a limit set to two bottles per person, per variation. Sales will begin once we open our doors at 9:00 AM, and we will be taking orders over the phone for those that might not be able to make it in person. Don’t feel that an early morning rush is needed; we have actually timed this release to coincide with our usual Saturday afternoon tasting! The Peche, Apricot and Colorado Native will be available to taste, for free, from 3:00 to 6:00. We have also secured the presence of brewers Troy Casey and Kent Reichow to be in attendance to answer any questions during the tasting.

All of us at Mile High are filled with extreme gratitude to our friends over at AC Golden and to all of our customers that share our excitement for this new frontier of Colorado brewing. See you all on the 26th....
