(Boulder, CO) – Twisted Pine Brewing Company’s Farm to Foam® series launches on Friday, May 18th with the introduction of Roots Revival, a carrot IPA created to applaud the Boulder Farmers’ Market’s 25th anniversary.
According to the brewery, the series is “a tribute to the sustainable spirit of Colorado.” With that goal in mind, Twisted Pine will source all ingredients for each beer in-state. The series will include 2-4 releases per year, and brewers aim to utilize not only locally grown grain and hops, but “fruits, roots, seeds and vegetables that spring from Colorado soil” as well.
Farm to Foam’s first offering, Roots Revival, is an American-style India Pale Ale brewed with barley and wheatgrown in Alamosa, Cascade hops from the Uncompahgre Valley, Crystal hops from Niwot and organic carrots harvested less than 15 miles from the brewery. The aroma starts with salient citrus hop notes, testament to the dry-hopping process, and follows up with a whiff of malted sweetness and a subtle whisper of carrot. Fresh, resinous hops proceed from fragrance to flavor and serve to punctuate the earthy character of grain and carrots. The beer finishes dry and crisp on the palate with the slightest hint of lingering bitterness. At 6.9% ABV and 51 IBU, Roots makes a charming companion for summer sipping sessions.
The Roots Revival release party will be an all-day event on Friday, May 18th at Twisted Pine’s ale house, where the beer will be available on draft and in 750ml bottles as soon as the doors open at 11 a.m. Representatives from the Boulder Farmers’ Market will be on hand to discuss the importance and impact of local food sources. In addition, bottles will be available at select locations throughout Colorado. For more details visit www.twistedpinebrewing.com, you wascally wabbits!
