Joe Bowden and his brewing team from the Fort Collins C.B. & Potts brewing team won silver for their Irascible Zipper Barely Wine in the American-Style Barley Wine category. “It’s always exciting to be recognized for hard work and patience. Our silver medal winning Irascible Zipper, was brewed in 2014 and was the first barleywine we’ve made at CB & Potts. It takes about 10 months for the flavors to start singing together, with the sharp edges rounding off and the intense flavors begin to meld,” says Head Brewer Joe Bowden. Brewer Jeff Eaton describes the beer as “a complex beer, driven by a rich malty aroma and intense hop flavors with subtle but warming alcohol.”
