Ready for something dark and delicious? Something that looks as great as it tastes? Something smokey, malty, and smooth? Get into a pint of our Pyramid Peak Porter! Brewed with tons of Roasted, Chocolate, and Black malts, balanced with a heavy dose of delicious and earthy Fuggle hops, this porter is just what the not-afraid-of-the-dark (beer drinking) person is looking for. When Aspen Brewery’s head brewer, Terry Butler expressed interest in brewing a porter, it didn’t take much convincing to follow through with one. After all, Terry has won medals for porters at the Great American Brew Festival in years past! What poured out of our tap that first day the porter was ready was nothing short of euphoria.
Aspen is nestled between two enormous mountain ranges, the Elk Mountains, and the Sawatch Range. These two ranges are home to some of Colorado’s highest mountains, known as ‘fourteeners’ as their altitude is above fourteen thousand feet — there are many within a short distance from Aspen, but one of the most breathtaking to behold is surely Pyramid Peak. Impressive aesthetically, Pyramid and its neighbors the Maroon Bells are also some of the most difficult fourteeners to climb. We couldn’t help but name a badass beer after this badass mountain. Climb that peak and get high — altitude wise of course — then come tell the crew over a pint with its namesake! Show Less
