Spontaneous Brewery Crawl Stop 2: Wits End Brewing

In Featured Brewery by Chris

Our first stop on our spontaneous Saturday brewery-crawl was Del Norte Brewing.  To decide where our next stop would be, we just looked at the next closest brewery that we had never visited before.  We drove around a while before I could get my iPhone to cooperate with our search, but luckily we wandered right towards Wits End Brewing Company.  We have …

Spontaneous Brewery Crawl Stop 1: Del Norte Brewing

In Featured Brewery by Chris

Update: Del Norte closed their brewery in December 2012. It was a shocker, as they seemed to be doing well and were pretty widely distributed around Colorado. We’ll miss our Cincos and Mañanas, but we’ll always have our memories.  Adios amigos. This weekend we came to a realization.  If we’re going to accomplish our goal of visiting all the breweries in Colorado …

Late Night at the Old Mill

In Featured Brewery by Chris

Last night we were driving around in an unfamiliar neighborhood, wondering where to go for dinner. Chain restaurants all around, nothing was really enticing us to eat.  It was getting later and later, so heading towards home we finally saw the sign.  Specifically, we saw the bright white and red sign for The Old Mill Brewery & Grill in downtown …

Great Minds Drink Alike, Indeed

In Featured Brewery by Chris

We weren’t planning on drinking away our Sunday afternoon.  In fact, we only went out for a few errands, and then we were going to go right back home to relax and get ready for the week ahead.  But you know, it seems like we always have the best time when we let our original plans go out the window.  On this particular day it …

Breckenridge Brews & Bar-B-Que

In Featured Brewery by Chris

If you live in Colorado, you know that the weather this month has been a blessing from Mother Nature.  Usually March is the snowiest month of the year.  However this March we’ve not seen a single flake, and more surprisingly, we’ve had unseasonably warm temperatures in the mid-70s.   If I didn’t have a calendar I’d swear it was at least May!  There’s nothing like …

St. Patrick’s Shenanigans and Blarney Rock Irish Ale

In Featured Beer by Chris

St. Patrick’s Day came and went, and now that we have finally recovered I can write about our day (or what I remember of it.)  We wanted to drink but not drive, so we spent a few nights in Denver where we could celebrate in safe walking distance to our hotel.   Being members of the Colorado Parrot Head Club we were already participating …

Beers and Burgers at C.B. & Potts (Highlands Ranch)

In Featured Brewery by Chris

It was only after a long day of drinking that we made our way to C.B. and Potts in Highlands Ranch.  As members of the Colorado Parrot Head Club, we spent the day working on our St. Patrick’s Day parade float (which by the way, is amazing.  I’ll post more details on that after the parade next weekend.)  Of course you can’t build …

Another Night Wasted at Dry Dock Brewing Co

In Featured Brewery by Chris

I’ll admit right away that our visit to Dry Dock Brewing in Aurora was really sort of an accident.  We actually had to make a run to The Brew Hut for some home brewing supplies, and being that Dry Dock is attached to The Brew Hut it seems almost rude to not pop in for a pint.  That’s how it always starts for us…. we stop for …
