Raise a glass to/from the Germans

Published On 08/21/2012 Published On 08/21/2012

Germans have been brewing for longer than even Coloradans, and're now bringing to LoHi a tradition begun around 800 B.C. (Before Coors), with Prost. Authenticity is the word (so technically, the word is "die authentizitat!", yelled intimidatingly), achieved via a beer hall covered in mid-century Deutschland artwork and lined with long picnic tables, perfect for enjoying suds stewed in traditional copper kettles bought from a brewery in the homeland

Designed by a German brewing expert who won Gold last year at the GABF, their three core styles include

Altfr├Ąnkisches Dunkel Bier: As easy-drinkin' as it is hard...pronouncin'..., Altfr├Ąnkisc-- umm, it employs a recipe that came with those kettles, and is simply described as "smooth and malty flavored"

Wei├čbier: This unfiltered heffe comes from the same category in which its brewer won gold, so expect greatness, as well as banana and clove notes

Prost Pils: The yeast for this slightly spicy & hoppy classic pilsner comes from a German monastery, so prepare to end your night chanting nonsense in a robe. Then the DU kids will ask you to leave their frat house

For sustenance, trucks'll rotate outside, running from Uber Sausage, to Chile Billy, to an in-the-works, beer-paired special menu from Stick It To Me, though proud Coloradan brewers would be quick to point out that not even centuries of European tradition can Stick It to U.S.

The beer at Prost Brewing is created inside an antique copper brewhouse, which basically means that it harkens back to an age of traditional German brewing. It also means that Prost's core beers, as well as its seasonals, are about as authentic as you can get without slapping on some lederhosen and taking a jaunt across the Atlantic.
