Black Shirt Brewing's 3rd Anniversary Party

October 10, was the 3rd anniversary party for Black Shirt Brewing and it was jumping. We arrived close to the opening around 2:15 that Saturday and there was a fair amount of people in attendance. Black Shirt Brewing is close to our hearts, we have known the three founders when they were brewing in their basement in Centennial, CO.  Chad and Carissa, and Branden Miller are the heart of this brewery and it has become a local hangout.

For this special day, they had some really nice beers on tap. They had a barrel-aged Imperial Red Porter on tap that was 8.14% ABV. It was aged for 10 months in Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels. Another wonderful beer on tap was the whisky barrel-aged coffee quad, a 9.5% beer that was aged 21 months in whisky barrels then blended with Huckleberry Roasters Guatemalan coffee. Both of these beers were excellent!

They also had a 3rd Anniversary Sour on tap, it was brewed with Colorado barley, hops, and with their Saison yeast strain. Here's the rest of the story.

We didn't stay the entire evening so didn't get to hear the band.  They have a really cool stage out back in the patio made with pallets.
