    There's an old brew from an extinct Denver brewery, Tivoli Helles, described as a Munich-style Helles. Recently Bill Eye at Prost Brewing has resurrected the beer as a contract brew (it isn't on the beer list - but if you're at Prost and want to try it, ask the server - sometimes they have a secret stash). Does anyone have a Helles recipe that starts sweet, good bread and biscuit flavors, finishes dry, little to no hop flavor? I'm working on one using a Colorado two-row instead of a Pilsner but if anyone out there has a good starting point, I'd love to hear about it.

    Sadly, Bill is no longer at Prost and it's nearly impossible to get a Tivoli there. So, next Lagerthon (coming in about three weeks), I'll do my clone version. Prost, Bill. Someone's getting a great brewer.

    The stats will help. The beer was being brewed under contract by Prost Brewing. You could go in and if you knew to ask, get it, even though it wasn't on the menu. I don't know now. But I will try to reproduce it.
