Created in honor of the 2015 World Ski Championships, this Bohemian-style pils pours a clear golden-straw color capped by a head of crisp, white foam. On the nose, look for undertones of crackery pils malt overlaid with classic Saaz noble hop aromas offering some grassy spiciness and a touch of mild lemony brightness. The hop contribution comes through bright and clear in the flavor, as well, with plenty of grassiness, a little earth, and mild citrus. The vibrant carbonation adds lift and crispness, keeping this brew on the lighter side of medium-bodied while supporting the moderate bitterness as it keeps the overall impression on the dry side. For pairing options, we're spoiled for choice as pilsners are among the most food-friendly beers; the brewery recommends shallot and herb pan seared scallops, Thai chicken cabbage salad with ginger lime dressing, or lemon blueberry layer cake with buttercream frosting. Cheers!
Crazy Mountain Brewing Company was founded in January 2010 by Kevin Selvy and his wife Marisa, and it is the Vail Valley’s first production brewery. A Colorado native, Kevin had worked in finance after graduating from Colorado State, living in Europe and California while pursuing that career, and developing a taste for great beer. It was while he was in California that he got his big break in the brewing industry when some of his homebrew crossed paths with an Anchor Brewing Company employee – leading him on a new path that would take him to positions at several California breweries.
One day in 2007, Kevin got off his shift at Anchor and went to have a beer in the tasting room. It was here that he met Marisa, who had just finished a tour of the brewery. Three short years later the pair would find themselves married, relocated to Colorado, and the owners of their very own brewery. Named after the Selvy family’s Crazy Mountain Ranch, the brewery demanded a ton of hard work to turn it into the success it is today. In the early days, the husband and wife team did everything, including brewing, packaging, remodeling, running their tasting room, and delivering beer to their local accounts via an old pickup truck. While Kevin leads the brewing operations, Marisa leverages her extensive experience working with marketing and advertising agencies in her position as VP of Marketing. The last seven years have delivered tremendous success, with the brewery being expanded twice to meet increased demand, and the tasting room becoming a popular destination for Vail tourists. The brewery currently produces about ten year-round offerings and four seasonals, as well as their limited-run "Local's Stash" beers in corked and caged 750-ml bottles.
