Mu Brewing by Morgan Forsyth, Craft Beer Promoter
Mu Brewery was the first brewery to open on Colfax Avenue in the heart of
the Aurora Cultural Arts District in Colorado. Mu Brewery opened in July of
2014 by owner Nathan Flatland, who was a home brewer prior to starting his
own microbrewery. Within a year, they won People’s Choice at Arapahoe County
Beer Fest and won a Gold Medal at the All Colorado Beer Fest.
After accomplishing so much in the first year, the head brewer/owner, Nathan
knew that he had to step up his game to make a mark in the micro-brewing
industry. Since the Beeramusu had done so well in several festivals, the brewers
were interested in brewing the beer at a larger capacity. Within a few months,
Mu Brewery and Rockyard Brewing Company joined forces to brew the Beeramusu on
Rockyard’s 25 barrel system. This month, the beer will be distributed to several
bars and restaurants within the state.
Additionally, Mu Brewery has been working up a collaboration with CO-BREW, for
the annual Collaboration Festival in Denver, CO. What you can expect from these
two breweries at the Collaboration Fest is a Steam Ale aged 3 months in a rum
barrel, with additions of Sichuan peppercorns and Makrut lime leaves.
“We’re very motivated to brew some new fun and exciting beers. I love brewing
beer and seeing the look on people’s faces when they sample something new –
especially when they aren’t sure of the name. When we let them sample a beer,
even with a hesitation - the look on their face when they enjoy it is priceless.
“ – Nathan Flatland, Head Brewer/Owner. Cheers!
