Default homebrewers: Bronco beer?

Thinking about brewing some sort of special beer to enjoy while watching Bronco games next year - something Bronco themed. Thoughts on what that might be?

For SB50, I found a 12'er of New Belgium tangerine IPA that was delicious. I figure NB is a Colorado brewery and tangerine is sort of orange, so that was pretty close. We can do better.

Obviously, step 1 would be getting the color to be a bright orange. Any thoughts on grain bill to get the color right?

Beyond that, what does a Bronco beer taste like? are we talking about citrusy hops, and some orange peel to accent? What other flavor notes would represent Colorado or the Broncos? Any styles come to mind?

obviously, for playoffs, you would double the grain bill and call it imperial.

When I miss my hometown of Denver I usually smell fall. Not sure if that makes sense or not. But allspice, nutmeg, pumpkin yada yada always take me back.

I have been in LA 30 years and still think of Denver when I smell those things. I am probably just crazy. But thought I would share....

But my wife says I say "there is nothing better than fall in Denver" every year.

I was thinking of starting a homebrewers thread

As to your question I'm still only extract breeding, so I'm not sure of a good grain bill for an orange color. I made a hefeweisen wheat beer that came out kind of orangeish, but I don't think anyone would identify that beer with the Broncos.

A Bronco themed beer is an interesting idea, I'll have to think about that one!

Three superbowl trophies?

I'd go with a nice Belgian Tripel, something around 9-12% would do just nicely. I just bottled an Eisbock today and brewed a "sweet potato pie" brown ale. I actually have an orange flavored Dubbel fermenting right now, along with my first batch of wine (Rosso Fortissimo?).

If you wanted orange, a Witbier with orange and coriander would be a good choice, lots of good recipes for those.

Color: Vienna Malt can give you that Orangish hue. Use a base of Pale Malt with around 10% vienna and that should get you started.

As far as the beer. I have a buddy that brews for Phantom Canyon in the Springs. He told me that he drank a candied orange peal pale ale all season. Sounded great. Said was a big citrusy nose. Was a combo of Citra, Cascade, and Amarillo. Also had candied orange peal at flameout. Google it should be able to find it. I'll be brewing something along those lines for next season.

Why do you mash your Pale Ale so high?

This was a recipe we found I think on the Cat's Meow. It turned out really good. The only thing we would have changed is we would have put more zest in it and made sure there was zero pip attached to it.

Semi-related, Anyone got a really simple porter recipe they like?

Got a guy I'm trying to take through his first session, and I'm trying to keep it as simple as possible.

We'll be batch sparging through my cooler.

Awesome thread! I've never lived in CO so I'll leave the "tastes of the locale" to the locals. I look forward to all the input, I wasn't aware we had so many homebrewers here!

The 3 Lombardis equating to a Belgium Trippel is a great idea Probably won't be getting anything orange out of the taste but I personally don't think you need to have an orange flavor to make it a "Broncos Beer".

Plus, adding in the fermentation and cellaring time required for a Belgium Trippel, It would be ready just in time for the 2016 season to start.

This is very similar to the ESB I made yesterday: exchange the Cascade for EKG/fuggle and skip the Orange/coriander and that's it. Very similar grain bill, yeast, and hop schedule.

I like the idea of the tripel, but for my needs, I need something session-strength - I want to be able to put down at least 3-4 over a 3 hour game...that many tripels would make work the next day really...tough.

Not much, depending on what you already have. It could by done for well less than $100.

Of course, it depends on how deep down the rabbit hole you want to go. You could easily spend thousands if you were so inclined.

I'd suggest reading either Papazians "the joy of homebrewing" or Palmer's "how to brew", and then walk into your local homebrew shop to get set up.
