Event Preview: Denver Winter Brew Fest

We used to write about how the summer months in Colorado were Beer Festival Season. When the weather is sunny and warm, the number of beer festivals are staggering. Summer time in Colorado is filled with more beer festivals than any one person could attend – at least until they perfect cloning or time travel. It’s an embarrassment of riches. In the winter months the festivals are fewer and further between, but we think that just […]

Creede Brewing Company brings the Wild West to North Denver

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 […]

Escaping Reality at FERMÆNTRA

I know it seems like all we do is visit great breweries and drink craft beer. If only that were true. In reality we both work totally beer-free desk jobs Monday through Friday. We sit at our computers all day long, trying to solve problems and put out figurative fires for our employers, all without a single craft beverage in sight. To be honest we both really enjoy our day jobs, at least most of the time. […]

Lost Highway Brewing Company

At long last, Lost Highway Brewing Company is finally open. Can you even believe it?  The sign for this brewery on Colfax has been up forever, and after no activity for such a long time we’d basically written them off. Then they surprised us by finally opening their doors this past September in the space they’ve long-held vacant, next door to the Cheeky Monk Belgian Beer Cafe on Colfax. The location makes sense given that the owners of […]
