    We are beyond excited to bring you an evening with Bierstadt Lagerhaus from Denver Colorado. We will have Ashleigh, Bierstadt’s co-founder and head brewer, on The Show.

    We will be featuring the following beers:
     
    The Slow Pour Pils - your favorite brewer's favorite beer
     
    Dunkel - Dark, flavors of bread crusts and chocolate. Franconian classic

    This is a great episode focusing on the dedication to lagers; it's always refreshing to talk to a brewery that has been able to scratch out an existence doing their own thing and forging a unique path for themselves. Have a listen or relive the live stream below!
