New at Acme: Soulcraft Beer!

Sometimes, you just gotta become your own distributor!

Currently, Soulcraft Brewing is not distributing in our valley,

so Lauren, Acme’s manager, headed over the pass to get some!

Lauren Alkire, being willing to bring the haul over the pass to Crested Butte!

We are really excited about all the new offerings from distilleries and breweries all over the country! Today, we’ll highlight a couple “locals”.

We’re bringing you two beers from New Planet Brewery in Boulder, Colorado.

“As avid outdoor enthusiasts, we’re never more “at home” than when we’re exploring old mining trails in Colorado’s high country, fishing the pristine waters of the South Platte, or skinning up Arapahoe Basin under the light of a full moon. We understand how fortunate we are to live in a place like Colorado. We also view it as our responsibility to ensure that the things that make Colorado so special are there for generations to come. So, we Tread Lightly.” Hey- these folks are speaking our Gunnison Valley language!

“At New Planet, we’re big fans of enjoying great beer with close friends, but we also know there is something special about being out in the elements by yourself. These moments of quiet solitude in nature are the inspiration behind Seclusion IPA.”

Whether you choose to enjoy these brews with friends or alone, they’re sure to please! Come check them out!

You know and love them for their beers, especially Dale’s Pale Ale, but Oskar Blues Brewery in Longmont, Colorado has more tricks up their sleeve!

Enter Wild Basin Boozy Sparkling Water!

“Wild Basin is a lush and unspoiled spot along the St. Vrain River, our backyard playground nestled deep in the mountains of Colorado. It’s Clean, Pristine, and Untamed – just like our Wild Basin Boozy Sparkling Water. Keep Running Wild.”

Oh, and get this- they donate $1 per case of Wild Basin sold to beach and river cleanups around the country! Do you love them or what!?

 

Hoppity hops hops! If you’re an IPA fan, then this beer from Odell Brewing Company’s for you!

“Hammer Chain was born to reinvent our approach to Double IPAs. Named after the spinning blades of our custom-built machine that pulverizes each whole-flower hop, Hammer Chain is brewed with meticulously sourced, vibrant American hop varieties and packed with notes of drippy tropical fruit, radiant peach, and sweet stonefruit.”

We’re eager to hear what you think about our new choices! Come see us soon!

New at Acme: OZV wines from Oak Ridge Winery

Oak Ridge Winery is the oldest operating winery in Lodi, California, built in 1934.

The wines are made from 7,500 acres of estate vineyards throughout the Lodi American Viticultural Area (AVA). The winery and vineyards are situated between the Sierra Nevada foothills and the San Francisco Bay.

The area’s uniquely Mediterranean climate, with warm days and coastal evening breezes, is ideal for the cultivation of world-class wine grapes. California’s top varietals thrive here, with zinfandel being a singular phenomenon.

Vines, some over 100 years old, produce small yields of intensely flavored fruit to create wines that are the ultimate expression of the terroir.

 

Won’t you stop by and try some of our new products? DOUBLE ACME POINTS ALL OFF-SEASON! Cheers!

New at Acme: Resilience Beer

We know it’s still feeling like winter (even though it’s actually spring!), and thinking about summer, and fire season, is far from anyone’s mind, but we wanted to share the incredible story behind one of our new items here at Acme.

The Camp Fire as seen from the Landsat 8 satellite on November 8, 2018.

Y’all remember the devastating forest fires in California last year, right? It was the deadliest and most destructive wildfire season on record in California. One of those fires, the Camp Fire, killed at least 86 people, and destroyed more than 18,000 structures, becoming both California's deadliest and most destructive wildfire on record.

Well, the folks at Sierra Nevada Brewing decided to do something about it. Visit their website to read the full, incredible, inspiring story. Suffice it to say, they crafted a new beer, and also shared the recipe with any and all who were willing to brew and sell it. “More than 1,400 breweries signed up to brew Resilience. Our suppliers donated ingredients to every brewery nationwide. Wholesalers and retailers agreed to carry the beer and donate every dollar they received. All of them agreed to do this for free to benefit people they had never met. Every dollar Sierra Nevada receives will go to those impacted by the Camp Fire.

So, come try the new beer, and know that you’re doing something good for the world! #drinkbeerspreadjoy

Today, let’s focus on a few of the new beers!

“A bourbon barrel stout is, by design, an exercise in collaboration. The profiles of two distinct and celebrated libations come together to form something unique. When Old Elk Bourbon Distillery opened its doors less than a mile from our brewery, back of napkin sketches were traded, and after months of patience, this imperial stout is realized. The freshly emptied bourbon casks contribute hints of sweet vanilla, soft oak, and deep molasses that complement the full body of rich roasted malts. We recommend pairing this beer with a good neighbor.”

Such a great story and collaboration! See our earlier blog post highlighting the boss ladies that concocted this tasty treat.

One of two new beers from Deschutes Brewery!

“Introducing Fresh Haze IPA, our newest IPA is hazy with a chance of obsession. The flavor explodes in your mouth with notes of orange citrus sweetness and a soft malt body. Carrying both citrus and tropical fruit from Mandarina, Amarillo and Simcoe hops…OJ for days.”

We’re dreaming of spring, even though Mother Nature seems hell-bent on hanging on to winter these days!

 

Brazil’s 1st Artisan brewery is now available in Colorado! Saúde!

“Dado Bier Lager is a light, golden-colored, low fermentation American Lager. Gently bitter, it is a benchmark in the fundamentals of a great Pilsen beer, the most well-known and consumed type in the world. Produced with carefully selected ingredients, it has been developed to please every palate.”
