“Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough.” – Mark Twain We don’t know about too much, but now and then it’s fun to set the beer stein aside and belly up to the bar for something a bit stronger. Recently we got just the opportunity to do that thanks to Yelp Denver and the folks over at Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey.
If you know anything about us, you know that we really like beer. Maybe you like beer too, I mean, why wouldn’t you? With such a rich history and an incredible assortment of varieties, what’s not to love? Now that we agree that beer is good, did you know that it can also be good for you? It seems like wine always gets the credit for being the “healthy” way to imbibe, but the truth […]
We have waited far too to cross Dad and Dudes Breweria off our Colorado Brewery Challenge list. Truth is, we’ve been here a few times we just never got around to writing about our visits because, to be honest, we left with very little to say. You see, those first visits occurred shortly after Dad and Dudes Breweria first opened their brew pub in Aurora, and we were not particularly impressed. During those initial visits Dad and […]
In the Denver metro area beer landscape, there are literally dozens of breweries to choose if you want to experience some delicious craft brew. That’s why it should tell you something that we’ve visited Brewery Rickoli not just once, not twice, but three times so far this year. Located in the Denver suburb of Wheat Ridge, Brewery Rickoli is about 40 miles northwest of our home, and there are lots of other places along that […]
The Brew on Broadway, aka The BoB, is part coffee shop, part craft beer brewery, and has somehow found a way to perfectly meld these two environments into one great neighborhood hangout. We visited one Saturday afternoon and immediately felt at home in this Englewood drinking spot. We were here for the beer, so we skipped right past the coffee and headed straight for the bar. The space is large and comfortable with a big […]
Another new brewery opened in Denver a few months ago: Former Future Brewing Company. We visited their new brewery and tasting room on South Broadway for their grand opening celebration. Based on the crowds that were there to join us in welcoming this new brewery, we think this new space is going to do great things.
Hey fellow Denverites! Looking for something to do this Friday night? How about a movie premiere! CRAFT, a new beer documentary by filmmaker Craig Noble is premiering at the Sie FilmCenter on Friday, April 4th. It’s must-see viewing for any craft beer lover, and this Friday you can see it VIP style!
Spring has sprung, and summer is just around the corner. That means sunny days spent chilling on patios and taking in some cold, delicious beer. It also means it’s nearly time for our pasty white skin to see more sun as we break out the shorts, tanks, and flip-flops. With just a few more months before the real summer weather gets here, it’s time to start thinking about getting in summer shape and ditching the […]
We’ve been hearing about Diebolt Brewing on the beer blogs and even tasted their beers at some beer festivals. The buzz about them was great, as were the samples we tasted. Clearly, Diebolt Brewing was long overdue for a visit, so we set out to check them out in person.
The 2014 Collaboration Festival is just a memory now, but oh what fun memories we have of this inaugural festival! Imbibe Denver and the Colorado Brewers Guild kicked off Craft Beer Week right with this unique festival, which showcased over 35 special collaboration brews. We can only hope that this festival will return next year.
It’s finally here! Colorado Craft Beer Week begins today and there are beer-themed events going on all over the state every day through next Friday, March 28. We’ve picked a few of the most intriguing events and listed them on our Event Calendar, but the funny thing is, many of the festivities we want to attend seem to be at one spot: Epic Brewing Company. Epic has a barrel-load of events happening all week, pun […]
