Boulder releases Barrel-Aged Rye in nod to pro cycling event.


Boulder Beer Company will release Stage 6 Barrel-Aged Rye Pale Ale in Colorado this August in celebration of professional cycling and Stage 6 coming to Boulder this summer.

"Stage 6 is an extremely small batch brew currently aging in two oak bourbon barrels," said Tess McFadden, marketing director for the Boulder Beer Company. "It was brewed with caramel malt and toasted rye in the mash tun for a nutty flavor and deep golden color, delicately hopped, then racked into bourbon barrels to age for over two months. The barrel-aging will impart vanilla, oak and bourbon flavors and aromas into the beer for great complexity. It will be offered on draught only to a handful of local key accounts to serve on August 25th during the exciting sixth stage of professional cycling."

Boulder Beer's connection to cycling extends to sponsorships of the Boulder Cup of Cyclocross, the Boulder Roubaix, the Boulder Mountainbike Alliance, Outdoor Divas Cycling Club, RealDAmgen Master Cycling Team, the Boulder Cycling Club and the Denver Bike from Work Bash on Bike to Work Day. They were also the first business in Boulder to adopt a portion of the city bike path. "As Colorado's first microbrewery, Boulder Beer wanted to celebrate the fact that their hometown is the birthplace of professional cycling races as well as the oldest craft brewery in the state," Tess McFadden said.
