Once again this year, Great American Beer Festival (GABF) tickets sold out in only minutes and I like to think that we had a little something to do with their incredible success. You see, for the past several years your BMT team has volunteered to pour beer at GABF. This year we stepped up our game and also signed up to help with setup and to distribute GABF posters. We hung promotional Great American Beer […]
It’s awful how sometimes the silly commitments we make (i.e.: work) keeps us from our true passion (i.e.: beer.) That’s the only excuse we have for taking so long to recognize a brewery we visited a few months ago that really deserved to be featured long before now: Red Leg Brewing Company.
Spring has sprung people! While we still get the occasional cooler weather pattern traipsing through our state, the sunny and warm days are beginning to outnumber the chilly ones. It’s about fucking time, wouldn’t you say? I mean, winter in Colorado is lovely and not even as snowy as people who live outside the state seem to imagine, but this year it’s totally over-stayed its welcome. Spending a lazy afternoon sipping drinks on a sunny […]
It was around 7:30 pm on opening day when I ran into David Lin cleaning what appeared to be vomit out of one of the urinals at Comrade Brewing Company. It was a nasty job, but Lin seemed fairly unphased. After all, he had opened Comrade Brewing to the public earlier that same day, and if the steady crowds were any indication, the grand opening was a smashing success. Clearly, it would take more than […]
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.
If you don’t already believe that the craft beer scene in Denver is collaborative and welcoming to new upstarts, then let us tell you about Black Sky Brewery. Brewer Harry Smith opened Black Sky last fall, just a few blocks from Breckenridge Brewery where he brewed for about 11 years. Not only does Black Sky offer their own amazing craft beers, but they also feature several beers on tap from other breweries with a big […]
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.
Where in Denver can you belly up to a pole and drink a few beers, all while being surrounded by cute babes? Easy there sailor, get your mind out of the gutter. We’re talking about Station 26 Brewing Co.
