Welcome to Colorado, DESTIHL!

Dosvidanya Russian-Style Extra Imperial Stout

In devising my plan of attack for the Great American Beer Festival a couple years ago, I asked my readers which breweries I should be sure to visit. I was looking for beers I couldn’t normally get in Colorado, and I received lots of excellent suggestions. After numerous people recommended DESTIHL Brewery, I put them at the top of my list. And it was one of the best beer decisions I’ve ever made.

I loved everything I tried from DESTIHL at GABF. I even chose a couple for my “GABF Best in Show” list: Samhain Pumpkin Porter (2012) and St. Dekkera Reserve Sour Raspberry/Strawberry Ale (2013). After having their beers all I could think was, “How I wished they would distribute here!” And now, over two years later, they have partnered with distributors Elite Brands to make my dreams come true. I am ecstatic to finally say: they are here.

DESTIHL is such a solid brewery. It doesn’t matter what type of beer you choose: from their IPAs, sours, to stouts, they clearly know how to do it right. Since their arrival in Colorado, I have had: Vertex IPA, Hoperation Overload Imperial IPA, Flanders Red and Here Gose Nothin’ (both from their Wild Sour Series), Dosvidanya® Russian Imperial Stout, and Saint Dekkera Reserve Zure Dubbele Stout (sour double stout). I kid you not when I say I’ve been impressed with them all. And I’ve been known to be picky about beer.

The most unique beer I’ve had from them to date is the Zure Dubbele Stout. They took two of my favorite styles and combined them into one awesome creation. I’ve had one sour stout before (from a different brewery), but it was heavy on the stout and light on the sour. This one, however, was the perfect blend of both.

Here Gose Nothin'. 5.0% ABV, 12 IBU.

Check with your local liquor store to see if they carry any DESTIHL beers at this time. If not yet, it’s entirely possible they might start in the near future. If you do find a DESTIHL beer, I strongly urge you to give it a try. It just might brighten your day like it does mine:

Was having a sorta shitty day until I found out @DESTIHLbrewery is going to start distributing in Colorado! That changes everything! #happy
