The Wynkoop’s Hickenlooper Tribute Beer

The Wynkoop Brewing Company has announced and named the beer it plans to brew in honor of brewery co-founder, soon-to-be-former Denver Mayor, and Colorado Governor-elect John Hickenlooper.  It’s a winter warmer they plan to call InaugerAle:

Hickenlooper’s InaugurAle will be brewed on Saturday, with Colorado malt, oak chips, beet sugar (“Because Hick could not be beat,” says Wynkoop spokesman Marty Jones), and other interesting ingredients.

“Our goal is for the beer to be a little heartier and richer for winter special-occasion quaffing,” Jones adds.

“And that extra strength is required when taking on the governorship in hard times. We designed a beer that is more malty and hoppy, because we didn’t want it to be to bitter and rule out people from either party,” he adds. “It’s a bi-partisan beer.” (Does that mean the Democrats and the American Constitution Party?)

The beer should be available in January when Hickenlooper is inaugurated.

I’m not sure about the beet sugar, but it generally sounds pretty tasty.  I will have to try a pint or two, in the name of, you know, science, or news, or something.
