Cheers to all of you, Our Customers!

We would like to give a big Denver Beer Co “Cheers” to all of you, our Customers!  Some of you are down at the tap room during the week & weekends chatting with the beertenders and enjoying a beer.  Others are the customers celebrating in the Barrel Room.  Still others are the bars, restaurants & liquor store employees who believe in us and sell our products at your establishments.  Without you we would have never gotten this brewery off the ground, let alone experience the growth and expansion of this summer.

News Flash: Beer Pairs Well with Parties

The craft beer culture is definitely alive and well here is Colorado, however, there are still some folks out there (my mother-in-law) who aren’t quite convinced (gasp!) So, before we write those people out of our wills or unfriend them on Facebook, I have an idea to help encourage these fuddy-duds to open their minds to the amazingness of beer. (this would also be great for folks who already appreciate the amazingness of beer. AKA: our true friends)

Our First Collaboration Brew!

This Saturday we are releasing our very first Collaboration Brew created with the fine folks up at Upslope Brewing Company in Boulder, Colorado.  We had a great time collaborating with the Upslope guys on everything from conceptualization to tapping.  At Denver Beer Co we pride ourselves on making beers that complement the seasons.  Upslope has a tradition of fine canned beers and award winning small batch brews (they won Gold at the GABF for their Pumpkin Beer).  We are perfect partners for a Collaboration brew and created a beer that highlights the best characteristics of both Breweries' styles.

New Beers, first special ever!

New Beers, and our first special ever!

Thanks to all you thirsty lovers of beer we have officially “kicked” our first brew:  at approximately 12:49pm on Saturday, August 13th, 2011 Kaffir Lime Wheat bit the dust.  As the last breath escaped the pour spout, eyes were fixed, an odd silence fell over the brewery just as the calm before the storm when the first words from brewmaster Charlie Berger “that’s it for Kaffir Lime!!..” echoed throughout the taproom with applause following.  Fear not, it will return but in the mean time we have 2 more brews that are sure to be crowd-pleasures.
