Our Mutual Friend Malt and Brew Celebrates One Year!

omf

Last December, the River North district welcomed Our Mutual Friend Malt and Brew to the neighborhood with open arms. Way back then, they brewed on a set-up that was so small, it was adorable. Just 10 gallons!  And, in order to keep the tap lines flowing and doors open, they often brewed twice a day, […]

Beer Porn of the Week – Our Mutual Friend Malt and Brew’s Saison

OMFMB’s Saison ABV 4.5% IBU 28 Tasting Notes – Golden straw in color, with light citrus notes and just a little bit of spice.  Refreshing in the way a good saison should be.  Hands down one of the best I’ve tasted in Denver.  Would pair well with a good Gouda, an Arugula salad, or even […]

Denver’s Fermentation Festival Was A Delicious Afternoon

As a fermentation nut, I jumped at the opportunity to spend this past Saturday afternoon at Denver’s first (and hopefully annual) Fermentation Festival. For the most part, I love fermented foods and beverages. Kimchi and sauerkraut are the height of food joy for me. A real sour fermented pickle, regardless of what Bloodhound Gang says, […]

Libations and Wellness: Beer for Yogis

What does practicing yoga and drinking beer have in common? Lots, which is why a few local breweries have started yoga clubs. Yoga and beer have many similarities. Yoga is about finding the balance within oneself, where as when a brewer is brewing beer, they are looking for a balance in the flavors. Both can […]

Former Future Brewing Company hosts swanky beer tasting at The Oxford Hotel

The Cookie Brewer's offerings

Imagine a swanky party in a turn-of-the-century hotel suite; resplendent with thick, frilled draperies, dark wood cabinetry, an ornately-carved four-poster bed, and a fireplace in the corner. Imagine a penthouse with a view of a downtown urban area, hardwood floors, plush, leather seating, and decorative molding on the wall. The setting is chic, the partygoers […]

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 […]

A Festivus for the rest of us…to remember

Pouring of beer at the Denver Only Beer Festivus

Let’s be honest, Denver isn’t lacking in the celebration department when it comes to exalting craft beer. We are all too familiar with the likes of the Denver Beer Fest, Winter/Summer Brew Fest, and the incomparable Great American Beer Festival to name a few. But when it comes down to it, none have really put […]

Our Mutual Friend: A New Brewery and Maltster in Five Points

Our Mutual Friend Logo

A few weeks ago I was walking downtown, and saw a logo on the window of a building. It looked cool. Two hands shaking. It said “Our Mutual Friend”. Cool. I kept reading. “Malt & Brew”. What the hell? I like these words.. A few days later Sean and I found ourselves at Our Mutual […]

Beer Porn of the Week – Our Mutual Friend Malt & Brew Brown IPA

Our Mutual Friend Malt & Brew Brown IPA

Our Mutual Friend Malt & Brew Brown IPA  They’re not open yet… but they will be soon!  This Brown IPA was a bit of a “mistake” – the malt was toasted too long, producing a beer too dark to call an IPA.  Mistake or not it’s a great beer.  Stay tuned for updates on OMF’s […]
