Denver Brewery Spotlight: A Cabin in the City – Woods Boss Brewing Company

October 12th, 2018
Woods Boss Brewing Company

Woods Boss Brewing Company is def serving up something fantastic – and I’m totally digging it! Why?! Well since you asked – let’s talk about it! The Space/Atmosphere: The space is large! It features various couches and community style seating made of halved tree trunks. There’s lots of raw wood and exposed brick throughout. Two large roll-up doors let all that excellent warm weather in and lead to two smaller sidewalk style patios with picnic tables. The whole space, even with its large size, gives off a great “mountain cabin meets the big city” feel. The tap list... Read More

Aurora Brewery Spotlight: Launch Pad Brewery’s Rocket Fuel

October 5th, 2018
Launch Pad Brewery

In Aurora off the corner of Kentucky and Buckley tucked back behind the 7-Eleven lies an amazing hidden gem – Launch Pad Brewery. Open seven days a week this “rocket-themed microbrewery and taproom” (as Google states) is decked out in all sorts of aeronautics gear including several scale models of satellites and rockets. Their small taproom boasts a decent amount of seating and is indeed dog and child friendly. The staff here is exceptional! Having frequented Launch Pad Brewery over the past few years (primarily due to its close proximity to Community College of Aurora); I was hooked. All... Read More

With that growth, an onslaught of businesses have made this trendy area home; an uncanny number being breweries!

 Denver Brewery Spotlight: Damn Good Beers at Mockery Brewing

September 21st, 2018
Mockery Brewery

Mockery Brewing is the epitome of the RiNo Brewery scene. Tucked on the corner of 35th Street and Delgany Street – it’s just a stone’s throw from the Platte River and the 38th/Blake Street Station. It’s fun, hip, unique, and serves up one heck of a brew! After hearing the buzz surrounding Mockery Brewing for a hot minute, I knew it would fast become a favorite. So, I grabbed a fellow beer loving friend and we made our way there to sample some beers and kick off a Saturday Brewventure in RiNo! The ambiance here is FANTASTIC and I’m totally digging it! While the inside space is on the... Read More

Brighton Brewery Spotlight: Something Delicious at Something Brewery

September 14th, 2018
Something Brewery

After checking out the Brighton Chile Festival this past scorching hot weekend, a cold beer was more than necessary. There’s definitely something special going on at Something Brewery in Brighton. Some Brief History and Atmosphere: The story behind the name can be found in their attempt to foster an inquisitive atmosphere for beer enthusiasts. They found that many of their guests would request, “something light, something dark, or something hoppy.” Boy they sure take that adventurous way of thinking to heart. In fact, emblazoned on the walls is a large mural stating “Something…” followed... Read More

For You For All – Station 26 Brewing

February 16th, 2018

Chances are, even if you have never found yourself in the actual converted firehouse that houses Station 26 Brewing, you’ve most likely had their beer. Station 26 is one of the widest distributed local breweries around town, with their cans finding ample shelf space in local and major liquor stores alike. The Juicy Banger IPA is their flagship IPA, and the Tangerine Cream their award-winning fan favorite—both brews canned and drank in large quantities due to their well-deserved popularity. If you are still reading this and have never had the privilege to visit Station 26, read on! There’s... Read More

Guanella Pass Brewing Company

February 9th, 2018

Each and every fall, right when the colors start to turn, I head for the hills—more accurately, for one of the best aspen-viewing routes in the state, through Guanella Pass scenic byway. In the summer, the road to Mount Evans summit opens, and provides a prominent 14er—the highest summit in the Front Range. In the winter months, however, Mount Evans summit is closed for the season, and despite more warm sunny days than snowy ones (especially this year so far), the road does not get nearly as much traffic than it does when the Rockies are ablaze with fall colors or warm weather welcomes summer... Read More

Makin’ Noise V.5

February 2nd, 2018

It’s one of the greatest months of the year in the beer world in my opinion: February is official stout month. And while the Makin’ Noise V.5 Pussy Riot beer release was technically in January during their first anniversary celebration, we still have all month to enjoy each and every delicious stout on tap at various breweries. It was almost as if their timing of this special release was prophetic. As usual, these “great beers for a great cause” do just that: at the release party at Woods Boss Brewing that featured an art auction, over $950 was raised for Colorado Coalition for the Homeless.... Read More

Beyond the Pale: Trve Brewing

January 12th, 2018

In a world of basic, Trve Brewing stands out.  There’s a secret trick, it seems, when it comes to being different, but not coming off as trying too hard. And that trick is being genuine: something Trve nails. From their own words, Trve “represents being part of a counter culture without immersing yourself to the point of taking it too seriously.” As a result, Trve is not your biker aunt’s heavy metal bar; it’s also not an elaborate gimmick spinoff of some concept engineer from Hard Rock Café. It’s a heavy metal brewery that embraces chaos, but it’s the real deal. From the ornate... Read More
