Sip savor brew vail cascade weekend september

I just spent a phenomenal weekend in Vail. Phenomenal for the picturesque vistas and accessible hot tubs. Phenomenal for the 20-30 degree difference in air temperature from Denver’s unusually warm fall. Most importantly, phenomenal for the company of craft beer lovers and brewers. Vail Cascade Resorts has been hosting a series of unique beer events […]

Denver Beer Co.’s Beer, Bacon, & Coffee Fest celebrates the breakfast beer

Denver Bacon Co. tantalizes guests as they wait for 9am to come.

As many a St. Patrick’s Day and other generally unimaginative drinking t-shirts claim: “You can’t drink all day unless you start in the morning.” However true this may be, since you’ve graduated from your wild college days and have henceforth been marching steadily into adulthood and real responsibilities, killing a keg before noon in the […]

Beer, Bacon, & Coffee Fest coming to Denver Beer Co.

An event centered on beer, coffee, and unlimited bacon pretty much sells itself.  I mean, what else do you need to know before snagging your credit card and making reservations in the next five seconds?  Even if the event is being held at the bottom of the ocean, and all the profits fund the Prohibition […]

It’s our birthday and we’ll drink if we want to.

Over the past two years, we’ve done a lot of drinking. A lot of thinking and a lot of drinking. Through beer, wine, and spirits, we have sipped, sloshed, slurped, sopped, swallowed, swigged and swilled our way around this fine town. In honor of turning two, we are throwing a three-day party. Because, math. And […]

Help us name our second birthday beer

Last Friday, we brewed a Dubbel at Denver Beer Co. It was a glorious time. We then went over to Stranahan’s for a tour, had dinner at the Hornet, and made our way to TRVE for some more beers. Because, obviously, we needed those. In the process, we forgot to name the beer. We used […]

Denver Beer Co.’s new Barrel Room annex

IMG_5124 (Copy)

A misty moor, whale-oil lanterns flickering in a dim room, curls of ethereal smoke flowing from a Sherlock Holmes-esque pipe: despite a sludged-up River Thames, rampant disease, and the fact that people just threw their bodily waste out the window, the Victorian Era still retains a great deal of romanticism. But where can the modern-day […]

Sunday Funday: Bacon & Beer Festival Recap

Photos by John Mogos  Sundays are best served up with a side of bacon, beer and football.
