Wynkoop Brewery Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout
American stout, 7.5%
This is not a joke, although it did start out as one. Wynkoop Brewery released a video claiming to have made a beer using Rocky Mountain oysters (which to bring you up to speed are bull... um, parts) on April 1st, 2012 (note the date), and so many viewers took it as truth, that the brewers behind the joke decided to actually do it. Brewmaster Andy Brown crafted the recipe to included Colorado-based malts, roasted barley, Styrian Golding hops, and of course, Rocky Mountain oysters (seriously!) that actually create a creamy, coffee, and earthy-based stout. Get this, it sells them in two-packs because testicle jokes are pretty funny.
Copper Kettle Brewing Mexican Chocolate Stout
American stout, 7%
When he opened the brewery back in 2011, Jeremy Gobien’s bullet-point list probably went something like this, “Open brewery. Make Mexican Chocolate Stout. Win gold at the Great American Beer Fest. Boom.” And you should be thanking him, because since winning back in 2011, Gobien and crew have been turning out this unabashed, full-bodied brew, featuring a potent house blend of Mexican chili peppers and spicy cinnamon. Seriously, thank them.
