Here’s a fun fact about Jeff and me: We live 33 miles outside of Denver, but we both work downtown. With Denver traffic this is not ideal, to say the least. The only nice part is that we work within a few blocks of one another, so although the commute is horrible, at least we get to spend time together. I guess it’s true: misery really does love company. I only bring up this fact […]
Pints Pub holds a special place in our hearts. Jeff and I visited Pints on our first date more than 13 years ago. After meeting at happy hour, I told Jeff I was pretty new to the area and hadn’t gotten out too much. He offered to take me out on the town, and that first night out we stopped at three Denver bars. Our first stop was at Heavenly Daze, which I think was […]
The third and final stop on our Spontaneous Saturday Pub Crawl was to Strange Brewing Company in Denver. After our first two stops, we used the same logic to find brewery number three – what is nearby? We were so happy to see that Strange Brewing was nearby since we’ve been wanting to visit for a while. We’ve had Strange Brewing beers at a few local beer festivals and seen their taps showing up at […]
Our first stop on our spontaneous Saturday brewery-crawl was Del Norte Brewing. To decide where our next stop would be, we just looked at the next closest brewery that we had never visited before. We drove around a while before I could get my iPhone to cooperate with our search, but luckily we wandered right towards Wits End Brewing Company. We have heard a lot about Wits End Brewing, most recently on American Craft Beer Radio, but […]
Update: Del Norte closed their brewery in December 2012. It was a shocker, as they seemed to be doing well and were pretty widely distributed around Colorado. We’ll miss our Cincos and Mañanas, but we’ll always have our memories. Adios amigos. This weekend we came to a realization. If we’re going to accomplish our goal of visiting all the breweries in Colorado in a year, we really need to get moving. One stop a weekend isn’t going […]
We weren’t planning on drinking away our Sunday afternoon. We went out to run a few errands and planned to spend the afternoon at home, getting ready for the week ahead. We had the best of intentions. But you know what? We have the best time when we just give up on our plans and go with the flow. It’s sort of a habit of ours, and that’s exactly what happened this particular Sunday.
Beer for a good cause. What could be a better reason to drink? (As if you even needed a reason…)
This month’s weather has been a gift from Mother Nature. Usually, March is the snowiest month of the year in Colorado. So far this month we haven’t seen a single flake in the Denver metro area. Instead, we’ve enjoyed temperatures in the mid-70s F. Without a calendar, I would swear it’s actually May. All this warm weather makes us crave a cold beer and backyard barbecue. Fortunately, we knew just where to go to get […]
