Something to Watch For! And 4 New Places to Check Out!

With the constant opening of new breweries, it’s sometimes easy to forget the originals are still creating and producing great beer.  This month’s edition of Rocky Mountain Brewing News covered the expansion of Breckenridge Brewery … they’re building a farm, restaurant and brewery in Littleton.  It’s cool to see this development as it combines local beer and local agriculture, two things very true to everything happening in Denver and Colorado these days.  We hope to see you at this exciting new operation in the Spring of 2015! Here’s a link to the Denver Post article.

And if you’re looking for some new spots to check out, we stopped by the following four new breweries since our trip to Hideaway Park Brewing in Winter Park, and we think they’re worth your time:

Joyride Brewing (beautiful view of Sloan’s Lake and tasty Food Trucks, along with corn-hole competitions)

4 Noses Brewing (much bigger than expected, a lovely family story, and a selection of beer that will keep you busy)

Beryl’s Beer Company (another addition to the River North mecca, brewing barrel-aged beer, & some styles you can’t find)

Blue Spruce (experienced home brewers that went professional, launching with a deep, diverse, and thoughtful menu of beer)

We hope to see you out there on a Colorado Brewery Day … Everyday!

I met some great beer aficionados and managed to taste some new beers paired perfectly with food from Highland Tap & Burgers’ exquisite kitchen. Continue reading
