(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.
Imperial Kentucky Common
(8.2% ABV, 21 IBU)
Style: Kentucky Common
The Kentucky common style of beer was created in the Louisville, Kentucky area in the late 1800’s for the working class population. Traditionally low in alcohol, we put a twist on this classic American amber ale and doubled the ABV.
(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.
(6% ABV, 36 IBU)
Style: Brown Ale
Backhand is a medium-dark brown ale with a sweetness up front and a light roasted aftertaste.
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.
(5.8% ABV, 61 IBU)
Style: Red IPA
The winner of our bracket tournament in March, Magnum boasts a deep, red color, a mildly roasted finish, and a mixture of strong hops (including, yes, Magnum).
(5.3% ABV, 10 IBU)
Style: Fruit Wheat Beer
Brewed by the web design team that created this very website, Afternoon Bee-lite is sweet, slightly tart, citrusy, and exceptionally refreshing.
(6% ABV, 37 IBU)
This beer didn’t win our March Madness-style bracket competition, but it was our favorite so we invited the brewers back to brew a large batch. Technically a Festbier (but “märzen” is more fun to say), this German-style lager is medium-orange colored, bready, and features a touch of spicy European hop character.
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.
