Beer Release: Bet Yer Boots Brut IPA

A new City Star beer hits the taps this weekend. Bet Yer Boots Brut is a Brut IPA, a champagne-like beer with delicious hop flavor, low bitterness and an extremely dry finish. It was brewed with El Dorado, Amarillo, and Citra hops (whirlpool additions), and then dry hopped with Mosaic hops… a cocktail of tropical hops aroma and flavor to compliment the dry finish at 7% abv. Growlers welcome!

Wood Belly blends traditional bluegrass with modern songwriting and whether you’re spinning your partner around or hanging on every word, the result is the same. You’re left smiling and wanting more. 2018 has been an exciting year as the group released their debut album, “Solid Ground” and won the prestigious Telluride Bluegrass Festival band competition.

Wood Belly was born when Chris Weist (Mandolin) met Craig Patterson (Guitar) and Chris Zink (Dobro) at the Rockygrass Festival in 2015. Within a year, they had teamed up with Aaron McCloskey (Banjo) and Taylor Shuck (Bass) and the music immediately fell into place. Since then the band has played at an ever-expanding list of great venues including the Mishawaka amphitheater, the Fox Theater (Boulder), and Cervantes (Denver). Their festival resume includes the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Rapidgrass, the Durango Bluegrass Meltdown, the Keystone Bluegrass and Beer Festival, The Wyoming State Bluegrass and BBQ festival, Snowygrass, Grapes and Grass, and more.
