Bull & Bush Brewery - Colorado Barrel Collective #5 Treacle Porter 16.9oz

Bull & Bush first opened its doors in 1971 as a restaurant/pub in the Glendale area of Denver. In the mid-90s, they had the game-changing idea to build a brewery adjacent to the restaurant. Since brewing its first batch on New Year’s Day of 1997, the Bull & Bush brewing operation has become world renowned for its great tasting and innovative creations. Master Brewer Gabe Moline’s brews have earned multiple accolades including the Best Beer in a Brewpub award in Westword’s Best of Denver, multiple awards at the annual Denver-hosted Great American Beer Festival (GABF) and most recently the Bull and Bush’s “MAN BEER” was given the highest honor, a Gold award, at the World Beer Cup – the world’s largest commercial beer competition.

Six or so years ago Mile High Wine and Spirits and Grapevine Wine and Liquors decided to partner with The Bull & Bush to do a collaborative beer series. Born out of this thought is the current Colorado Barrel Collective that is on its fifth iteration. Both stores send freshly emptied Whiskey barrels to the brewery and come together on an innovative beer that is laid down for months to years. CBC #5 is a Bourbon barrel aged treacle (molasses) porter. Driven by notes of molasses, vanilla, bourbon, and oak, this beer is an amazingly drinkable 10% ABV offering with rich fudgy goodness. Do yourself a favor and grab one or more bottles to drink now and age well into the colder winter months. Cheers!
