‘Palace Caskcraft’ Beer Series: Small-Batch Cask Ale Now at Ship Tavern

Caskcraft

The Brown Palace is teaming up with the Wynkoop Brewing Company once again to create a series of special edition, traditional cask beers using Wynkoop Head Brewmaster, Andy Brown’s creative expertise and ingredients from the hotel’s signature elements.  The first beer to debut in the “Palace Caskcraft” small-batch beer series will be a version of Wynkoop’s London Calling IPA with an added hint of lemongrass, a featured component of the Brown Palace’s namesake spa line. As the series continues, additional batch recipes will use infused honey from the hotel’s rooftop beehives and water from the artesian well.

To parallel the Caskcraft Series, the Brown Palace purchased two beer engines for the hotel’s Ship Tavern to create its own house cask beers.  The stainless steel casks with old-fashioned hand pumps offer guests the authentic experience of enjoying cask-conditioned beers the way they used to be served when the historic hotel opened in 1890.

In addition to the cask beer endeavors with Wynkoop Brewing Company, The Brown Palace is also indulging in Denver’s love for beer with a Signature Mircobrew Package, which offers luxe accommodations, signature glassware and apparel and, of course, Caskcraft beers at the Ship Tavern. “Cask-conditioned beers are a perfect fit for the Brown Palace and Ship Tavern,” says Wynkoop’s Marty Jones. “It’s a great match of timeless treasures.”

The Great American Beer Fest & Rooftop Honey

Oh honey, let us tell you – this is one delicious beer.  In a beautiful collaboration sure to get your taste-buds going, The Brown Palace Hotel & Spa and Denver’s first brewpub, Wynkoop Brewing Company, have come together to create Rooftop Honey Saison, a limited-edition beer utilizing 75 pounds of honey from our rooftop honey bees.   Launched during a special exclusive Afternoon Tea here at The Brown Palace, guests were welcomed to be some of the first to try the beer, paired with other delicious offerings prepared by Chef Thanawat Bates including Hops Cured Kobe Sliders and Rail Yard Ale Beer Can Chicken.

Afterwards, over very own resident pianist John Kite performed an original song about our Rooftop Honey live for the first time ever at the launch event in celebration of The Great American Beer Festival and National Drink Beer Day.

Rooftop Honey is now available in Ship Tavern and at Wynkoop, for a limited time and will be served at The Great American Beer Fest this weekend here in our great City of Denver.  We invite you top stop by our pub, grab a pint and enjoy this sweet sweet nectar.  If you feel the desire to buzz about the special brew on Twitter, don’t forget to use the hashtag #RooftopHoney.  Enjoy!
