Somnombulance and a sneak peek at the Peak

Posted By on Mon, Mar 28, 2011 at 12:21 PM

So my jackass cold kept me from attending Black Fox Brewing's second anniversary party that I told you about here last week.

But a friend went and calls the featured Somnombulance beer a "must-try."

Here's what she said:

This one is made using coffee beans, Ghirardelli caramel and vanilla beans. On the east coast, they drink something called Coffee Cabinets (it may just be a Rhode Island thing). This is one beer I'd use to supplement the coffee syrup. So good!

That's no surprise to me, considering how much I enjoyed Black Fox's La Noche del Diablo beer at the All Colorado Beer Festival.

As soon as my cold is kicked ... and assuming there's any left, I'm heading out to try this beer. Though that may be a futile endeavor, because a note on the Black Fox Facebook page says that it is out at Bristol Brewery, and is "now only available at the party or wherever it can still be found on tap."

And while on the topic of beer, yet again, another quick update on Pikes Peak Brewing Company, courtesy of local beer guru Eli Shayotovich, who took a tour of the facility-in-progress on Saturday.

Watch the second episode of his Mad Man's Epic Beer Time show here, and you'll take the tour with him:
