World of Beer: Take One

It was Wednesday, March 13th.  We weren’t supposed to arrive until 8 pm.   The Facebook instructions were very clear:  World of Beer in Cherry Creek was opening their doors at 8 pm for their Facebook Fans.  This invite-only party would include beer of course, but also prizes and giveaways.   Rumors swirled that some Cigar City beers would be given away.  Cigar City is my Holy Grail of beers.  We had to be there at […]

TGIF 2013 at Black Shirt Brewing (With Bonus Trip to Infinite Monkey Theorem)

TGIF! There is probably no Friday as eagerly anticipated as the first Friday after the holiday season. After all, it was back to work this week. No more holiday parties or days off. It’s back to the grind, and even with a short week, Friday couldn’t come fast enough. What better way to celebrate the first Friday of a new year then by trying out a whole new happy hour spot? Enter, Black Shirt Brewing.

Prost!

In German, the word means “cheers” or “bottoms up!’ and is delivered as a toast to wish good health to one’s drinking companions.   In Denver, Prost now has a second meaning, as a place to visit when you want to enjoy some delicious, authentic German beer.  We joined Prost Brewing for their grand opening celebration on August 23rd and learned a little about this new brewery and what makes them stand out from the rest.

If Virginia is for Lovers, then Denver is for Drinkers

TGIF, Fellow Denverites This was the kind of week that felt so long when work ended on Friday we were ready to get drinks in our bellies as quickly as possible! Wanting a good, cold, craft beer, we decided to find the nearest brewery to our offices in downtown Denver. Fortunately, with so many great Denver breweries we were able to have happy hour at two: Denver Beer Co and Hogshead Brewery.

Breckenridge Brewery 22nd Anniversary Party

Breckenridge Brewery turned 22 this weekend, and we were there to help them celebrate. And by “help them celebrate” I mean drink their beer, eat their food, and generally enjoy wandering around the brewery like we were some sort of VIPs. This is the party of the summer, and we haven’t missed one yet. Okay, that’s a total lie. We never even knew about this party until our friend Jessica heard about it last year. […]

I Know This Much is TRVE

What do you get when you mix great beer and heavy metal and put it all in a super-cool new taproom on South Broadway? You get TRVE Brewing, one of Denver’s newest breweries. TRVE Brewing (which is pronounced “True” by the way) opened on Wednesday, June 27th. We stopped by on the first Friday after they opened to check them out.

Our Love / Hate Relationship With Lowry Beer Garden

Lowry Beer Garden opened last week, and we couldn’t wait to get there to check it out! Early reviews and teaser photos had us really excited about this place. Who doesn’t love a beer garden, right? And why should we have to wait till Oktoberfest to visit one? We decided to visit for Happy Hour with our friends Jessica, Shawn and the White Rascal himself (Scott) to check the place out.

Kicking Off Memorial Day Weekend at Vine Street

For Memorial Day weekend, we were headed up to the mountains to spend time with family, and figured a brewery was not likely going to be part of the plans.  What’s a beer lover to do?  It seemed obvious that we had to make at least one brewery stop on the way out-of-town, but where to go?  Well, we needed lunch, and we needed someplace close to our downtown Denver offices so we could quickly […]
