Peaks and Pints Beer Flight: WeldWerks Beer


In 2009, Neil Fisher began home brewing with friends in his garage. Fisher’s driveway held a lot of friends’ cars during those homebrewing days, and they all drank a lot of those homebrewed beers. Then Fisher threw down the gauntlet. He announced to his buds that if he medaled at the homebrew competition attached to the 2014 Big Beers, Belgians and Barleywines festival, which was held at the time in Vail, Colorado, then he would consider opening a brewery. He won two medals. Eleven months later he poured his first beer at his WeldWerks Brewing in Greeley, Colorado. His hefeweizen was turn heads before he brewed Juicy Bits, a hazy, juicy IPA that still is considered one of the best beers in Colorado. Today, Fisher and crew brew 300-plus beers in their downtown Greeley 15 bbl, 3-vessel steam brewhouse. Since Peaks & Pints received another shipment of WeldWerks beer, we thought it’s time to offer an in-house beer flight of Fisher’s handywork — a flight we’re call Peaks and Pints Beer Flight: WeldWerks Beer.

Peaks and Pints Beer Flight: WeldWerks Beer

Weldwerks Banana Cream Pie

4.4% ABV

This delightful, low ABV sour ale is brewed with banana, cinnamon, graham crackers, milk sugar, vanilla, and marshmallow, delivering a decadent cream cheese/cheesecake profile.

WeldWerks Strawberry Margarita

5.1% ABV

Made with Strawberry Puree and Margarita Mix, this fruited sour is Jolly Rancher sweet, tart, and practically a margarita in a can.

WeldWerks Juicy Bits

6.7% ABV

WeldWerks flagship IPA features a huge citrus and tropical fruit hop character from the Mosaic, Citra, and El Dorado hops and softer, smoother mouthfeel from the adjusted water chemistry, higher protein malts, and lower attenuation. The result is a beer reminiscent of citrus juice with extra pulp, thus the name Juicy Bits.

WeldWerks DDH It’s A Unicorn Thing

8.5% ABV

Experience this double-dry hopped rendition of a crowd favorite with cosmic amounts of Citra, Mosaic, and Lotus hops, exploding with flavors of fresh citrus and juicy peach, as well as hints of creamy vanilla.

WeldWerks Extra Juicy Bits

8.5% ABV

Extra Juicy Bits, the Double IPA version of Juicy Bits, WeldWerk’s popular New England-style IPA, is the most ambitious hoppy beer they have brewed to date. WeldWerks scaled everything up for Extra Juicy Bits, including malt, ABV, bitterness and most importantly, hops. They used an absurd 8.7 pounds of Citra, Mosaic and El Dorado hops per barrel, the most they have ever used in any beer, period.
