Inspired by Harvest Skis’ most popular ski called Homegrown, Mountain Tap sourced all Colorado ingredients for its Harvest Homegrown Rye Pale Ale. Several varieties of grain, including the flavor-forward malted rye, were grown and malted at Proximity Malting in Monte Vista. Hops were grown and processed at High Wire Hops in Paonia. The yeast was propagated at Brewing Science Institute in Woodland Park.

“And of course, the water came directly from the mountains that surround Steamboat,” Mountain Tap brewmaster Rich Tucciarone was quoted as saying in a news release.

The Nov. 24 event will include live music by Buffalo Commons, free tastes of Harvest Homegrown and an opportunity to meet the brewers. Limited edition 22-ounce bottles also will be for sale.
