On September 9th, 2016 the AleChemist team produced three Braggot' s ( Honey Ale ) for a charity event and brewing competition benefiting the Dear Jack Foundation which serves to aid adolescents whom are cancer fighters and hopefully survivors. We had a blast making these brews and being able to participate and help out such a worth while cause. Our entries were in three categories and each contained a different honey to showcase the style of beer as well as our company's mission, Honey! While we didn't score big technically on paper...my fault completely as I entered flat bottles...we did take first in Flight Awards for our Sweet Stout, "Lunacy" 11.7% Alc/Vol off the tap! This Stout was brewed with Colorado Alfalfa and mountain honey. Our other entries included a Strong Ale " Apis Aurum" the Golden Bee, created with White Clover Honey 12.2% Alc/Vol. and a spiced ale "Solis Ginjah" Created with Orange Blossom Honey and fresh Ginger, 9.7% Alc/Vol.
These three Braggot's were served with a taster of the honey used to create each brew which allowed the taster an inside look into our creations and our products. We love our Colorado community and appreciate events like this to help sustain and help build community. Special Thanks to Austin Clayton, Kirby "Tinny" Ray, Shanna Sheridan and Matt Newman for helping Marco and I throughout the process and on event day.
