I didn't get the best photos on this hike but I'll show you what I can. Matt is the guy here with the whitish ball cap. We're just beginning the walk at this point. We walked through a grove of scrub oak before the trail butted up right against the mountain wall.

He led a previous hike at Red Rock Open Space.
|This was really the only hike where people needed to wear something warm.|
Matt ended up choosing to brew an American-style Stout. He's always wanted to make an alcoholic root beer, so he ended up using sarsparilla. He also decided to add hazelnut and spruce. I am pretty excited about this one in particular because we saw so many unique plants that really don't grow along the front range except for a few small spots. The beer will end up being a good portrait of this particular location. Matt's beer, along with three others will be served this Saturday, October 29th at Brewer's Republic from 4-8pm. The cost is $5 to get in and get samples of all the beers, which will be served on handmade sample trays that I made out of Beetle Kill Pine. Take a look at the photos from the last tasting event.
