The Denver Beer Company By
Morgan Forsyth, Craft Beer Promoter
The inspiration for
the welcoming environment of Denver Beer Co. stems from beer gardens of Bavaria,
where the founders of this local hotspot traveled and gained their inspiration
to create great-tasting, unique brews. Charlie and Patrick (the brewmaistes)
wanted to recreate the environment of the beer gardens in Germany while
incorporating the laid back Denver vibe. So, they hand made the wooden picnic
benches out on the patio and created an atmosphere where people can share the
flavorfully crafted beer with good company. This brewery and beer garden is the
only dog friendly brewery in Denver, making it a unique spot to stop in whether
it’s a Friday evening after work or an afternoon break to quench your thirst.
With over 300 beers under their
belt already, you can always expect a different tap selection with exclusive
variety. If you have the chance to stop in, make sure to try all of the beers
they have on draft, because as soon as the keg is out they replace it with a new
distinct flavor to add variety to their rotating tap. However, two favorites are
kept on tap year round. The Graham Cracker Porter is a dark pour with mild
accents of vanilla, smoked cedar, and mulling spices. The Incredible Pedal IPA
is brewed with Centennial and Citra hops, which received its name
because the hops are ground by a bicycle powered machine.
In the past two and a half years, Denver Beer Co. has made its mark in the craft
brewery industry, so it's no surprise that there are some great things happening
in the months ahead. Denver Beer Co. is currently working on their new brew
house, which has an estimated opening time of June 2014. And Denverites – keep
your eyes on the lookout! The notorious Graham Cracker Porter and Incredible
Pedal IPA will be available in cans in local Denver liquor stores around July.
So, whether it’s to catch up with old friends or mingle with new ones, the
friendly community driven environment of Denver Beer Co. is the place to share
great beer with good company.
