For the second time, Black Sky Brewery of Denver, CO has paired with the Satanic Temple of Colorado for yet another beer release. Halloween day is when the brewery will release Satanic Panic, announced via Facebook. The beer is a caramel apple ale, with very little information about the beer itself beyond flavor. The event page states that “… Satanic Panis is the caramel apple ale of your spooky adult dreams.” The event will run practically all day, from noon to 11pm. “Come grab a slice and meet your local satanists (in a socially distanced manner),” the announcement goes on to say. Having personally been to the taproom, I can say that the food and beer are delicious, and that the music kicks ass. The taproom and brewery blend into each other, and visitors can view the brewhouse with very little obstruction from practically anywhere in the building.
This is not the first time the metalhead-operated brewery has collaborated with the Satanic Temple. Last year, they jointly released Ale Satan, a Honey Coffee Brown Ale. It has become a rotational for the brewery since its release last year as well. The beer is 7% ABV, 28 IBU, and currently pouring in the taproom, as well as available to-go.
For those interested in visiting Black Sky, you can expect loud, energetic music, tasty pizza (and other great food), and quite the variety of beer. According to the brewery taplist, there are 25 beers pouring at this moment, and the variety is fantastic. Included in the list are Petal to the Metal, an ale brewed with rose petals and hibiscus, 4.7% ABV, 16 IBU, as well as a watermelon variant of the same beer. For the loyal hopheads, they have a variety of pales/IPAs as well, including a Simcoe IPA and the Persistence Pale Ale brewed with coriander, 5.5% ABV and 13 IBU. The brewery also has a seltzer option, a pumpkin porter, a smoked scotch ale, and much more. Cheers, and don’t forget to say your Hail Satan before bed tonight.
