10 Breweries Under 10 Barrels at GABF

The Great American Beer Festival is upon us, and it brings an opportunity to try something new for many beer lovers. Whether that’s sipping a Sweetwater Brewing Company beer for those of us who live in Colorado, or trying one of Crooked Stave’s funky specialties if you’re from Maine, or even having Garrett Oliver of […]

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, […]

Rough Draughts: Nazareth is big, wet, with a sweet side.

trve brewing denver nazareth dank double ipa

There was only one word floating around TRVE Brewing’s “Nazareth” – the double IPA that made its 4/20 debut on Saturday evening – and that word was “dank.” A fitting term, given the various cannabis-centric activities Denver was playing host to this weekend. Albeit, a “dank” weed-inspired beer had me a bit nervous since I […]

Colorado’s Newer (and Smaller) Breweries

With nearly 2,500 breweries in the U.S., it would seem like a new, small brewery would struggle to develop a market for its product. But that’s not the case here in Colorado. Our beer-friendly culture has allowed new breweries of modest size to flourish over the last few years. Look no further than Crooked Stave […]

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 […]

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 […]

Seven new breweries in Denver since GABF 2011

TRVE Brewing has a good problem

You all like their beer too much. So much so that they’re changing their hours in order to keep the beer flowing, fill the CVLT growlers, and even offer some new brews. Moving forward, TRVE will be open Wednesday – Saturday. Meaning no more Sundays for the time being. I asked Nick the extremely obvious […]
