Denver's Spangalang brewery releases Orange Crushsicle
January 22 at 5 PM, Spangalang Brewery (one of Denver’s most revered new
microbreweries) is tapping a new beer in advance of the upcoming AFC
Championship game this Sunday in Denver.
Orange Crushsicle is a fast-finishing, super-quaffable session beer (of just
4.3%) taken to championship heights by additions of orange juice, bitter and
sweet orange peel, and a dose of vanilla.
“It’s the beer equivalent of a Dreamsicle frozen treat,” says Spangalang’s
Darren Boyd, “with refreshing orange citrus notes wrapped around subtle vanilla
flavors. It’s a guaranteed winner we’ve brewed in honor of the future AFC
champion Denver Broncos. Local craft beer drinkers will love it, but it’s way
too much for people from New England.”
Spangalang is setting aside a very special keg of the beer for Tom Brady for
after the game. “Just before kickoff,” Boyd says, “we’re going to drop the
pressure on the beer by a few PSI. It'll be a bit flat and more to his liking,
something to enjoy while he wipes away the tears."
Spangalang Brewery is located at 2736 Welton Street in Denver’s historic Five
Points neighborhood. Founded by former Great Divide Brewery staffers Taylor
Rees, Austin Wiley and Darren Boyd, the brewery opened in April of 2015 and has
already earned numerous “best new brewery” honors and a Great American Beer
