Wynkoop releases Mile High Pale Ale in cans

Wynkoop will release Mile High Pale Ale as the newest addition in their can lineup just before the July 4th holiday weekend. The beer, a sessionable (at 5.5% A.B.V.) version of the popular Mile H.I.P.A., will feature a new can design which will be the template that the other year-round classics like Railyard, Belgorado, B3K, and Colorojo will soon transfer into. The new can template features the Denver skyline as well as a map of Denver in the background.

“We wanted to update the look of the can and create more unity in the design of the beers we make. ” says Andy Brown, Wynkoop’s head brewer. “We are Denver’s first craft brewery, so I made this beer and named it in tribute to that back when I started working there in 2008.”

The beer is currently being made exclusively at the brewpub using our innovative hopinator device, and cans will be available in 6-packs starting July 3rd. Mile High Pale Ale will also replace Silverback, which is no longer produced by Wynkoop, in the Mile High Mix 12-pack box. Colorojo Imperial Red Ale, which originally came out as a seasonal, will be transitioning into the year-round lineup and will be the next beer to move to the new design.

Patty’s Chile Beer will be back in 4-packs mid-July, and will feature a new label as well. “The seasonal, hand-labeled cans will continue to feature quirkier art, but will still be easy to connect to the other Wynkoop beers on the shelf once they are all in the new template,” says Brown. Patty’s, named after Westword founder Patricia Calhoun, will follow Kurt’s Mile High Malt, which was released in April and featured a Kurt Vonnegut self-portrait.

Founded in 1988 and now located at the corner of 18th and Wynkoop, Wynkoop is Colorado's first brewpub and Denver's first microbrewery. Famous for small-batch beers, and even better people, Wynkoop's commitment to the community has made it a Denver institution for more than 25 years.
