(5.1% ABV, 29 IBU)
Style: Classic American Pilsner
With a very small amount of melanoidin malt to give the beer a little more depth of character, expect a straight-forward beer with a creamy mouthfeel, a dry finish, and floral and spicy notes from Cluster hops.
(11.3% ABV, 43 IBU)
Style: English Barleywine
This is a big, boozy beer that’s big on malt flavor and with just enough hops to even things out.
(5.8% ABV, 43 IBU)
Style: Colonial-Style Porter
This rustic and roasted porter featured hints of chocolate, molasses, maple syrup, and wood before finishing dry.
(9.4% ABV, 13 IBU)
Big fruity and spicy yeast characteristics intermingle with sweet cherry tea in this light but boozy Belgian ale.
(4.3% ABV, 35 IBU)
Style: Milk Stout
This full, sweet stout was brewed by students enrolled in Regis University‘s craft brewing program, class of 2016/2017.
Chardonnay Barrel-Aged Tart Cherry Pale Ale
(6.7% ABV, 46 IBU)
Style: American Pale Ale
What began as a small-batch consolation prize for the GABF Pro-Am became a 7BBL batch the next year became a Chardonnay barrel-aged batch the next year! This refreshingly tart, slightly pink beer finishes with flavors both fruity and vinous.
(6% ABV, 36 IBU)
Style: Brown Ale
Backhand is a medium-dark brown ale with a sweetness up front and a light roasted aftertaste.
(6% ABV, 49 IBU)
Style: American IPA
So named because we had to jump ahead of the line of guest brewers to get an IPA back on tap, Queue Jumper is moderately bitter with a fruity flavor up front and a touch of piney resin in the back all supported by a strong malt backbone.
Makin’ Noise: Blood Orange Kveik
(3.5% ABV, 24 IBU)
Style: Fruit Beer/Kveik
Brewed for Volume 3 of the multi-brewery series Makin’ Noise: A Pussy Riot Beer, this kveik (an ancient, orange-flavored yeast from Norway pronounced “kwyke”) is like eating an orange inside-out–it begins fruity and juicy and fades to a zesty dryness. A portion of the profits from this beer will benefit The Women’s Foundation of Colorado’s STEM program.
Almost every beer at Factotum is a rotating beer but, because they were brewed on a smaller 1/2 BBL system, these particular beers rotate in and out much more quickly; ask your bartender about the day’s selection.
