Charlie Papazian steps down as President of the Brewers Association
The founder and now past president has announced after 37 years at the helm, he will be stepping down. Papazian has done arguably more than any other individual for craft beer in the US. He will still be involved in the organization but he will be sorely missed as its leader.

Mincey’s Farewell Tour: Trailblazer
Last month one of our beloved Tryon brand managers, Chris Mincey, brewed a collaboration beer with his guys at Great Divide Brewery of Denver, Colorado. He’ll be leaving Tryon next month to go off and do mountain man stuff climbing the App Trail! He’s doing a farewell tour of some of his favourite top beer accounts in the state with their collaborative Chocolate Mint Stout. He’ll be sharing the love with us on Saturday, February 27 at 4 PM. We’ll have a couple other tasty Great Divide kegs on to support Trailblazer.
Trailblazer: Aromas of chocolate and mint come together to create the illusion of a peppermint pattie. The taste is reminiscent of the smell except for a lighter flavor of roasted barley is present as well as a medium bodied mouth feel. Similar to a peppermint pattie, the beer delivers a “cooling sensation” when exhaling after consuming a pint. No more beer breath!No more beer breath!
