We’re catching up on some long overdue posts, and this one is a really overdue one. Consider it a #throwbackthursday post, because we’re taking you all the way back to last September. It was September 7th to be exact, and we were on our way back from Durango after attending the Ska Anniversary Party. We planned our route home to pass a few great craft breweries: Elevation Beer Co in Poncha Springs, and Eddyline Brewing […]
Last month we put our day off for President’s Day to good use. February 16 was a cold and snowy day, but it was also the day that Avery Brewing Co celebrated the grand opening of their new brewery facility in Boulder/Gunbarrel. We couldn’t think of a better way to enjoy our day off work, so despite the weather, we hit the road to Boulder, and set our navigation for the new & improved Avery […]
We told you a few weeks ago about the Collaboration Festival. Did you get your tickets yet? If not you’d better hurry, because in just 15 days the Collaboration Beer Festival takes over Sports Authority Field at Mile High, delivering some unique and incredible beer collaborations to thirsty craft beer fans. We can tell you from experiencing the festival last year that this event is one of a kind. Don’t delay and miss out; get your tickets […]
Typically, we tend to avoid reviewing brewery grand openings. The crowds are usually insane, and occasionally the beers are a bit underwhelming – good, but not always totally dialed-in yet. Typically we like to wait and review breweries after they’ve had a chance to work out all the new-business kinks, when we know they’re a bit more established and their product has been perfected through a few batches. Fortunately, we didn’t run into any of […]
It’s Friday, so you know that means another brewery is open in Denver. For the past few weeks, we have been blessed with a few new openings, including Ratio Beerworks and Goldspot Brewing. It’s enough to make you wonder if anyone can bring anything new & unique to the beer market any more. Well, we’re here to tell you that they can, and Factotum Brewhouse has just opened with a unique and exciting business model.
This weekend we’ll be welcoming another brewery to the Denver beer scene when Goldspot Brewing Company celebrates their long-awaited grand opening on Saturday, February 21st. The brewery, located in the Denver/Regis neighborhood, will be officially opening their doors at noon on Saturday. We know what the weather folks are saying about Saturday, but we’re not going to let a little snowstorm keep us from dropping by for their grand opening. This is Colorado, and here we […]
Are you still wondering what to do for Valentine’s Day? Why not spend the day with your true love, the one who understands you and never lets you down: beer! Denver’s newest craft brewery, Ratio Beerworks, is celebrating their grand opening this Saturday, February 14th. If you or your Valentine enjoy craft beer, you should definitely make a visit to Ratio Beerworks a part of your Valentine’s Day plans.
This weekend Renegade Brewing Company opened the doors of their new production facility and invited the public to tour their new space. We took this opportunity to stop by both Renegade locations to discuss the big opening, and have some Renegade brews.
The Second Annual Collaboration Fest will be returning to Denver as the headline event of 2015 Colorado Craft Beer Week on Saturday, March 21, 2015. We attended the first Collab Fest last year, and it was such fun that we have high hopes for this second version. You should probably get your tickets now so you don’t miss out.
Call it sour grapes, but here in Denver, we’re not feeling the Super Bowl spirit this year. Since our Broncos got kicked out of the playoffs embarrassingly early, we’re still feeling a little deflated. [Insert your own clever New England #deflategate pun here.]
