Hall Brewing in Parker, Colorado will make you think of the “burbs” in a totally different way. Hall is a rural, “artisan-style,” family owned/operated brewery. The brewery is a 7-acre ranchhouse-style brewery building. Literally “handmade,” with local beetle-kill trees (how’s that for recycling?). Even the water is pumped from a well 800 feet below the brewery.
Their beers – all pretty tasty. I of course had to try nearly all of them. IPA & nitro IPA – a blend of American and English style IPAs. Brewed with American hops and malts, and fermented with English ale yeast – very drinkable at 6.5% ABV with 74 IBUs.
The peach ale – not my favorite but it’s the favorite and top selling of the brewery – it clean crisp and refreshing at 5.5% ABV and 24 IBUs.
The stout is a all-weather robust Stout with toasted malt and chocolate flavors and coffee overtones.
My favorite was the Christmas ale – Deck The Hall. Christmas ale in April? Yup, a Belgium style with copious amounts of clove, cinnamon and spices and just deliciousness leftover from the last batch. Num!
