Aspen Times Weekly Libation: AMF Amber Lager

AMF — come up with your own interpretation of what it stands for, but if you’re any sort of a beer lover you’re likely to enjoy this smooth amber lager. Named for a run on Snowmass ski area, AMF is the newest beer by Roaring Fork Beer Co. in Carbondale, which took home the most votes at the grand tasting at Snowmass Mammoth Fest last weekend. That’s not surprising though: What started as an amber ale became a lager when the brewers decided they wanted to avoid that hoppy taste some people don’t care for, said Jerod Day, assistant brewer. The result is a unique but easy to drink beer that’s clearly already pleasing the crowd.
