Wife Out of Town Special Day 6: Denver Beer Co.

Brewery Name: Denver Beer Company

Website: denverbeerco.com

Year Founded: 2011

The Bawss’s: Charlie Berger and Patrick Crawford

Brews: It’s honestly always changing. There are definitely a lot of frequent favorites, but they just tap whatever is fermented.

Tap room/Tour hours: Monday Closed, Tuesday – Thursday 3 – 10pm, Friday and Saturday Noon – Midnight and Sunday Noon – 9pm

Josh’s Favorite Beer: Graham Cracker Porter

Chris’s Favorite Beer: 5th Horseman Saison

Guest’s (Jonathan Shikes’s) Favorite Beer: American Rojo Red

Why we love this brewery: Creativity! Graham Cracker Porter, Kaffir Lime Wheat, William Wallace Scotch Ale, and more.  The tap room and brew house are one in the same, making the atmosphere extra beer-y.  Great location in the Highlands neighborhood without attracting too many Chads.

Why readers should love this brewery: They are dog-friendly, have constant beer variety, and may have the best patio in Denver.  The tap room comes equipped with many board games, keeping you entertained when there isn’t live music.  By the way, there is live music on Sundays; Denver Beer Co. is in cahoots with local record company, Suburban Home Records.

Eating is cheating but here is what’s close by: Sometimes there’s a food truck. My Brothers Bar is close by for burgers and Colt & Gray will blow you away with their pork belly.

When and if there are any special releases: It’s always special – see brews section on their website.

Serviced by: Patrick

Shwag available: Hats, shirts, Frisbees and glasses

Listening to: Rolling Stones

Other possibly relevant info: Inside intel is they are getting 2 new fermenters and a van so you may start to see some of their stuff in local watering holes.
