Fort Collins Releases Giles, Golden Imperial Ale


Fort Collins, Colo. – FCB (Fort Collins Brewery) is excited to announce the release of its latest Malt Monster brew, Giles, Golden Imperial Ale Friday, February 20th.

A villainous monster, Giles, Golden Imperial Ale may be a light-bodied brew, but he’s as complex of a creature as any. The fighting trilogy of fruity esters, light, spicy hops and sweet notes of alcohol supported by a soft malt character create an all too familiar mischief-maker.

“Giles is the first brew to kick off our 2015 season of monsters, and I think the audience following the Malt Monster series will enjoy its light, but bold flavors present throughout the beer,” said Kaylee Kulich, Brand Manager at FCB.

Malt Monsters (MM) is an artisanal bomber series of limited release high-alcohol beers. Each unique brew features its own monster and history depending on origin of the beer style. Giles was named after the famous Gilles of Binche, performers disguised with masks, red costumes and wooden clogs. Like the performers, Giles, Golden Imperial Ale is a symbol of the coming spring.

Each rotational limited release monster is available in 22oz bombers and on draft throughout FCB’s distribution footprint. Giles will be available to ship beginning the week of February 23rd.

MM merchandise and pint glasses can be purchased custom to each monster at FCB or online at

ABV: 10.2%
