Your Local Brew: 6 New Spots!!!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Recently, we did the Sheridan Shuffle … checking out Kokopelli (offers food locals are enjoying), and Odyssey BeerWerks,  (take home a six pack of your favorite).  Add the Arvada Beer Company to the day (bring in some  Belgian fries from right next door), and you’ve got an incredible diversity of breweries and styles without traveling far.

We then headed up to Westminster, Lafayette and Louisville on back-to-back days, enjoying the stout tap take over at Crystal Springs, cool action heroes serving delicious beer at Odd 13, and the quintessential Locals of Westminster Brewing Company and Front Range Brewing Company which are both offering solid, deep, and tasty selections.

Let us know what local brew you’re enjoying and where this week on our Facebook page so we can share it with the Colorado Brewery Days community!

More Local Brews in 2014!

And hey, if our seven-part 2013 series, “Your Local Brew,” along with our breweries-in-one-region quick sheet that we posted last weekend, didn’t point out something near you, maybe this year we’ll see a craft brew spot open up in your neighborhood! If so, let us know where and what you’re drinking locally on FACEBOOK!

A big thanks to Westword for the 2014 outlook!

New Colorado Breweries in 2013


And a big thanks to Dave Butler at Fermentedly Challenge for keeping everyone really aware of all things beer in Colorado, always.  We struggled to stay up on the new breweries opening this year, but Dave’s done it again by keeping his pulse on the beer buzz here in the Rocky Mountain State. It’s been a big year for new breweries (almost 50 opening) … check out the list he published on Friday.

And we say a sweet farewell to some craft beer friends as two breweries that we visited during our travels close their doors … check out these posts in homage to the local beer they once brewed for some small towns in Colorado:  Grand Lake Brewing and Rifle Brewing.
