I’ve covered TRVE Brewing before, but in case you missed it, the Denver-based, metal-themed brewery is a bit of a legend in Colorado. Their dark and loud taproom on Broadway in Denver downplays the high quality of their vastly unique beers. Primarily staked in mixed-culture beers, the brewery has a handful of clean releases throughout the year, as well as year-round clean offerings. All beers honor a legacy of aggressive music, and the dark imagery that surrounds it. All hail the ales.
The brewery announced the re-release of their Total Funeral Imperial Stout this week via the company Instagram. The beer is being released in 16oz two packs for the first time ever, with a grand total of 660 two-packs available for purchase (and yes, they acknowledged how close they were to the 666 mark). The pickups were set to begin this past Friday, December 4, 2020. All two packs are available in the taproom only.
Now for the righteous beer description- the mighty stout checks in at hefty and hearty 12% ABV, which means 2 pints are more than enough for the lay beer enthusiast. The brewery claims that the beer “…is definitely the biggest, sweetest beer we’ve ever made.” Then the description gets really impressive- “Brewed with 100% Troubadour malts including some custom roasts so we could dial in the perfect profile: honey sweetness, brown sugar, baking spices, and a lingering dark chocolate finish.” Holy mouth-watering, cold-weather beer gods, that sounds delicious.
If you’re not immediately in the Denver area, odds are you’ll have to wait for the next return of this mighty stout and plan a trip out. Otherwise, get on it now before it’s all gone! As I’ve mentioned in recent articles, the state of craft beer in Colorado is in jeopardy once again, as a second wave of restriction measures has been handed down to curb the spread of the pandemic. Aside from delicious beer, TRVE also carries really cool merch. Do what you can to support the industry, as we exist for you and through your support. Cheers!
