From appetizers to desserts, you can practically enjoy a whole meal just by trying these beers. It's a concept that's sure to please beer and food enthusiasts alike.

Appetizers: A Refreshing and Citrusy Punch

Let's start with the appetizers. Woods Boss Brewing Co. and Angry James Brewery have collaborated to create a kumquat pale ale that promises a refreshing and citrusy punch. This unique beer is perfect for those who enjoy a zesty and fruity flavor profile.

Mountain Toad Brewing and Coal Mine Ave Brewing Co. took inspiration from the classic Indian samosa and created a savory California Common-esque spiced beer. With roasted potatoes, ajwan, cumin, ginger, and chiles, this beer is a flavorful delight that will transport you to the streets of India.

Main Course: A Thai-Inspired Sour Kölsch

For the main course, New Terrain Brewing Co. and Denver Beer Co. have joined forces to create a Thai-inspired sour Kölsch. Infused with flavors of lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, ginger juice, and dried chiles, this beer captures the essence of a Thai soup in a refreshing and unique way.

Sides: Earthy, Floral, and Mildly Peppery

Don't forget about the sides! Two22 Brew and Fiction Beer Co. have crafted a Belgian blonde ale infused with roasted beets and local pink oyster mushrooms. This earthy, floral, and mildly peppery beer not only tantalizes the taste buds but also offers a visually stunning pink hue.

If you're not a fan of mushrooms, you can try the beet-infused saison from Phantom Canyon Brewing Co. and Evergreen Brewery. This beer showcases the natural sweetness and earthiness of beets, resulting in a unique and flavorful experience.

Potatoes Take the Spotlight: Embracing German and Irish Varieties

Potatoes take the spotlight in a couple of collaborations. El Rancho Colorado and Steep Brewing and Coffee are embracing the German style Kartoffelbier, which prominently features potatoes. This beer offers a unique twist and showcases the versatility of this beloved vegetable.

Reverence Brewing Co. and Sleeping Giant Brewing Co. celebrate the Irish variety of potato by incorporating it into an India pale ale. This unexpected combination results in a beer that combines the hoppy goodness of an IPA with the subtle earthiness of potatoes.

Desserts: A Sweet Finale

Now, let's move on to desserts. Call to Arms Brewing Co. and Joyride Brewing Co. have created a mango mochi lager using Jasmine rice, sake yeast, and tropical fruit. This beer is a delightful blend of sweetness and tropical flavors, reminiscent of a refreshing dessert.

Downhill Brewing and Los Dos Potrillos Cervecería have combined the flavors of tiramisu and churros in a decadent stout. With the added kick from bourbon barrel-aged coffee, this stout is a treat for the senses, perfect for those with a sweet tooth.

Two22 Brew and Vail Brewing Co. have added Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia to their Belgian golden strong ale. This beer offers notes of cherry and fudge in every sip, creating a dessert-like experience that will leave you craving for more.

Lastly, LUKI Brewery and Downhill Brewing have created a raspberry-cotton candy Kölsch to delight your inner child. This beer is a whimsical and playful take on a classic style, offering a burst of fruity sweetness with every sip.

Beer Cocktails: A Unique Twist

If you're looking for something different, there are even beer cocktails to try. 6 and 40 Brewery and Mountain Toad Brewing have created a spiced witbier that resembles the Coquito cocktail, a Puerto Rican libation featuring rum and spiced coconut. This beer cocktail offers a unique twist on traditional flavors, perfect for those who enjoy a little bit of creativity in their drinks.

Jagged Mountain Craft Brewery and Public Offering Brewing Co. are making a Paper Plane CocktALE, inspired by the beloved Paper Plane cocktail. This beer cocktail features bourbon, amaro, Aperol, and lemon juice, creating a refreshing and complex flavor profile that will impress cocktail enthusiasts.
