After finishing our Challenge Nation race yesterday, we were ready to party! Lucky for us there was a celebration in progress at nearby Renegade Brewing Company. It was Renegade’s 1st Anniversary party, and being such big fans of this brewery, we weren’t going to miss it!
It seems like Renegade Brewing has made lots of fans over their first year, because this party was packed full of people celebrating this favorite neighborhood brewery. Renegade opened all the doors for their party — offering a patio for those who wanted to sip their beers in the sun and opening up the brewery for those of us who prefer to drink our beers near where they were made. It was awesome hanging out in the brewery, not just to see all the brewing equipment, but also because this is where the band was playing and the photo booth by Chipper Booth was set up for everyone’s amusement. Seriously, that photo booth rocked!
Renegade was pouring some special barrel aged beers for their anniversary celebration. The fellas in our group fell in love with the whiskey barrel-aged Elevation triple IPA. Called the Elevated Wood, this was a sipping beer for sure, with quite the whiskey kick! I stuck to my favorite Renegade beer, the 5 O’Clock blonde ale. I’m not sure if it was the heat of the day or all the excitement of our surroundings, but that 5 O’Clock ale never tasted better.
We were able to take home several fun parting gifts from Renegade’s anniversary party. Not only did we leave with a pocket full of CRAZY photo booth strips, but our very own White Rascal (aka Scott) won himself a pizza from nearby Belemonti’s Pizzeria in Renegade’s raffle. We ended up walking down to Belemonti’s for dinner, and it was delish! Last but not least we also had to take home a new 4-pack Renegade’s Ryeteous Rye IPA. What could be better than a few cold cans of Ryeteous in the backyard for Independence Day? Nothing, dammit. That’s why we took some home!
Sincerely, we are thrilled that Renegade Brewing Company had such a successful first year in Denver. We are huge fans of the beers and the people at Renegade and wish them loads more success in the year to come.
