Jagged Mountain in Downtown Denver: Your Local Brew #5

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

With nearly 200 breweries now in Colorado, character is the one thing that will make a new place stand out.  Every brewery has the opportunity to put a twist on their stout, place their unique stamp on the tap room theme, or create a particular community vibe.

Jagged Mountain offers such character with a clear style to their beer, atmosphere, and community outreach, making them a great micro-brewery to finally pair with the near-by and ever-expanding Great Divide. And fortunately for all of us, their tap room will accommodate the crowds they should expect since they’re just a stones throw from the heart of downtown and Coors Field. So pull up a stool and enjoy …

… beautiful pictures of Colorado and mountain ranges the world over. These guys are outdoor enthusiast and mountaineers most definitely.  I joyfully imagine that a copy of Freedom of the Hills sits next to their beer recipes. After the Dirty Thirty Ultra this summer, I look forward to drinking my “earned” specialty beer.

… their “High Octane” beer menu which is a tour de force of big, bold, and flavorful brews. Though sometimes circumstances indicate that it’s best to play it safe in the mountains, that mode shouldn’t apply to breweries in Colorado.  Jagged Mountain is definitely testing the limits and walking the edge. Reminiscent of Elevation in Poncha Springs, I’m ready to take this adventure with them.

… contributing to the Jagged Gives program. Talk about an innovative way to give back to their local community.  I was already intrigued by this brewery after a few samples, but their poster about this project on my way out the door really made me pleased with what this team is up to. All small businesses should consider the community as part of their bottom line.
