Throw Back…May 6, 2016

On May 6, 2016 we won our second World Beer Cup Gold Medal. The beer that won was our flagship IPA, Independence Pass Ale. This beer was the original catalyst for Aspen Brewing Company back in 2006. Founder Duncan Clauss, then a CU undergrad and home brewer thought, “Independence Pass Ale…IPA…that would be a great beer to brew and even better beer to brand under Aspen Brewing Company”. Independence Pass Ale evolved from a crazy idea and a beer recipe into Aspen Brewing Company and ten years later, World Beer Cup Gold Medal winning IPA.
