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

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.

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

Joyride Brewing and a Little Sip of History

December 8th, 2017

On a busy corner of Sheridan Blvd with views of Sloan’s Lake lives a neat little brewery rooted in some interesting history. This side of Sheridan is technically the city of Edgewater; a bright-lighted arch welcomes you to this quaint sandwiched suburb, a literal stone’s throw from Denver proper across the street. In recent months, developers have sought to build up the Sloan’s Lake area into another hot Denver neighborhood, with the ever-popular Highlands and Lo-Hi areas bordering all the other sides of the lake. The businesses of Edgewater only serve to benefit from this potential... Read More

Brewery Rickoli: Where Everybody Knows Your Name

December 1st, 2017

In the quiet suburb of Wheatridge off 44th and Wadsworth, lives a brewery that embodies the bordering community: laid back, friendly, unpretentious, and true to itself. Wheatridge is unlike the other surrounding suburbs of Denver; there are no large plots of track developments, in fact, no construction at all (talk about a breath of fresh air!). You won’t find a Chili’s or Olive Garden; it is as if someone cast the city in a time-freezing protection bubble and somehow, all the mom-and-pop establishments operating for the past thirty years are still thriving, nestled in still-full... Read More
