(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.
(5.1% ABV, 15 IBU)
A style that melds beer with cider, this graff is very light, dry, and features fruity undertones.
(4.3% ABV, 32 IBU)
Style: Milk Stout
This thick, sweet milk stout was aged over almonds. In fact, “Mandelmilch” is German for “Almond Milk.” Take note, however, that this is a milk stout brewed with almonds, not a stout brewed with almond milk.
(6.5% ABV, 24 IBU)
Style: English Brown Ale
A toasty and biscuity brown ale from brewer John Emrich.
Caramel Corn Cream Ale
(4.8% ABV, 14 IBU)
Style: Cream Ale
A fairly traditional cream ale but for the addition of caramel malts. Light, smooth, and sessionable.
St. Dominic’s ALE-leluia
(6.7% ABV, 27 IBU)
Style: Belgian Blonde
Based off of a recipe by Br. Brent Bowen O.P. from St. Louis and brewed by Br. Brent and his friends from St. Dominic’s Parish here in Denver, ALE-leluia was brewed for St. Dominic’s Oktoberfest celebration–but you can get it at Factotum, too! The beer is light in color but possesses flavors of dark fruit like plum and raisin.
(6.8% ABV, 35 IBU)
Style: Kentucky Common
A favorite of the miners in the Louisville, Kentucky area circa the late 1800’s, this near-extinct style of beer is dark amber, malty, slightly sweet, and features Cluster hops (a classic American hop used in many historical beers) and Tettnang hops (a German hop that celebrates the miners’ ancestry).
(5.5% ABV, 37 IBU)
Style: American Pale Ale
Originally a collaboration between Denver’s Factotum and Indianapolis’ Tow Yard, this beer is an homage to both cities’ favorite retired quarterback. Oatmaha features sage to represent Colorado, corn to represent Indiana, and oats to represent the two horse-themed teams for which this beer’s honoree played. Tasting notes: like touchdowns in your mouth.
(6.5% ABV, 72 IBU)
Style: American IPA
An IPA that’s all English in the malts, all American in the hops. With a slightly fruity aroma, this beer begins toasty, sweet, and slick up front then transitions into a big, bitter, piney hop blast.
(6.7% ABV, 45 IBU)
Style: American Pale Ale
Expect slightly pink beer that’s citrusy, fruity, and mildly tart.
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.
