On Saturday May 20, the Intrepid Sojourner Beer Project opened in the Denver Santa Fe Arts District. Owners Andrew Moore (formerly of 105 West Brewing Co) and Ben Gettinger had promised a brewery that would specialize in internationally inspired beers, and we would say they nailed it. Our visit to Intrepid Sojourner Beer Project We arrived at Intrepid Sojourner Beer Project on the afternoon of their grand opening. They were packed with thirsty craft beer lovers, ready […]
Last week we spent a lazy Sunday afternoon north of downtown Denver searching for some fun and some great craft beer. Our first stop was at Broken Shovels Farm, which we wrote about last week. All that time hanging out with the barnyard animals made us thirsty, so after the farm, we decided to visit two craft breweries that we hadn’t previously visited: Creede Brewing Company and Beer By Design. Our first stop was to […]
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 […]
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.
At long last, Lost Highway Brewing Company in Denver is open. Located on Colfax next door to the Cheeky Monk, Lost Highway will focus on making some traditional Belgian-style ales, but not exclusively, as they mix in other styles of craft beer. We popped in Lost Highway in early November to try their beers and decide for ourselves if this new Denver brewery was worth the wait.
It’s just a few days until Thanksgiving and this year we’ve decided to pass on our typical wine pairings and enjoy some beer with our holiday meal. But not just any beer. This year we’ll be pairing several great Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project sour beers with our turkey dinner. Much like wine, these tart sours pair well with a rich, savory Thanksgiving meal. Given our love of Crooked Stave – we visited their tasting […]
Last weekend Denver welcomed a new member to the local craft brewery scene: Mockery Brewing Co. We stopped by the new brewery on Sunday, when we knew things would be a bit more subdued than their Grand Opening a few nights before. Mockery Brewing is just off Brighton Boulevard in the RiNo neighborhood, a stone’s throw from The Source, home of Crooked Stave, and adjacent to the construction project that will soon become Great Divide Brewing’s new […]
