Bipedal brews

Posted By on Wed, Jun 20, 2012 at 5:59 PM

Perhaps you recall our article last August on Beers Made By Walking, Eric Steen's project that brings together the great outdoors and the great indoors beverage.

Either way, a new season is upon us and a press release that went out today says that it's sign-up time for the next BMBW programs.

Each free hike is limited to 10 people, and you can sign up directly on the Focus on the Beer website.

Following the hikes, there will be a community brew day and then a special tapping party at Pikes Peak Brewing Co.

  • It's pretty simple really. Identify potential ingredients for your next brew, see how beer's made, then drink up.

Here's more specific info via Steen:

The BMBW program began last year in Colorado Springs and we wanted to make sure that this year we paid tribute to our beginnings. We have invited eight local homebrewers to come along on two separate hikes and make beers inspired by the edible plants we find along the trails. The hikes this year will be at North Cheyenne Cañon Park in Colorado Springs and the Palmer Lake Reservoir trail in Palmer Lake. Each hike is public and will host four brewers, it will be fascinating to see how different each beer is even though it was inspired by the same hike. The eight beers will be brewed communally at Pikes Peak Brewing Co. in Monument in July. The beers will be served at the brewery in September, and again during Monument Beer Week in late October. One of the beers will be selected and re-brewed by PPBC brewer Chris Wright for the larger Colorado Beers Made By Walking series that will take place in Denver in October.
