After a long day outdoors enjoying the Rocky Mountain air, knocking back a cold one has got to be pretty nice. Capella Telluride understands. The Telluride, CO hotel has teamed up with local Smuggler’s Brewery to create four custom brews available on draft exclusively in the property’s Onyx Restaurant and Suede Bar (pictured).
These “Constellation” beers (Capella is also the name of a star) come in four very different varieties and carry flavors not often found in your typical brewski:
- Constellation Ale: a pale ale with a hoppy blend of citrus and grapefruit
- Constellation Brown Ale: flavored with star anise, pink peppercorns, and bay leaves
- Constellation Spa Treatment: a cider/ale combo mixed with green tea, lemongrass, and chamomile
- Constellation Solar Eclipse: a dark porter infused with espresso
Like traditional wine pairings, Capella sees its new beers matching up well with dishes at the bar and restaurant. Try the classic BLT with the Constellation Ale, or the crab cake appetizer with the Spa Treatment brew.
One of the best things about these new Constellation beers is the reasonable price: $3 for a pint or $5 for 22 ounces. Who’s got the first round?
