West Flanders Brewing Releases Recreational Smoke

(Boulder, Colorado)-  In honor of Colorado's history making new laws, West Flanders Brewing is now dispensing Recreational Smoke. 





A homegrown, fully legal, American-style porter, Recreational Smoke is enhanced with heady beechwood smoked malts from Bamburg, Germany.


These specialty grains are paired with an array of other roasted malts to create a unique beer with notes of baked brownies and toasted grains, with satisfying smoked flavors throughout. All rolled up in a beer with a mellow 6% ABV.


“Since we opened last year,” says head brewer Brian Lutz, “many of our customers have told us they wanted to be able to enjoy recreational smoke here at our brewpub. In light of recent events, we decided the time was right for us to allow it."


The beer is on sale at West Flanders Brewing for just 30 cents per ounce. West Flanders customers are allowed to purchase up to 16 ounces of the beer at a time inside the brewpub.


Customers can take the beer home in quantities of 64 ounces in West Flanders Brewing’s custom glassware.


Out-of-state visitors can legally purchase West Flanders’ Recreational Smoke.


“But if you’re traveling here by plane to enjoy it,” note West Flanders co-founder Mark Heinritz adds, “be aware that Recreational Smoke is not permitted on the property at Denver International Airport. Possession of it there can get you into serious trouble.”


“We also want to remind our Recreational Smoke customers,” Heinritz says, “that it’s still illegal to consume Recreational Smoke in public here in Boulder or anywhere else in Colorado.”


As it always does, West Flanders serves a wide array of delicious edibles (from Chef Tony Hessel) for those who partake of Recreational Smoke and the brewpub’s other exceptional beers.
