Baere Brewing

Posted on

Baere Brewing has become once of my new fav’s in the Denver (Baker neighborhood) area. That’s a lot to say, considering there’s over 20 breweries within a 5 mile radius (perhaps even more!). Though, I’m not a huge fan of the location, it’s in a strip-mall-type of area, with a small amount of parking. I […]

3 Freaks Brewery

Hall Brewing

Broken Compass impressed me so. I tasted a few including the chocolate coffee stout, coconut porter, IPA and the […]

Crazy Mountain has got to be one of my favorite breweries – it’s got it all: awesome location in Edwards, CO with a backdrop of the mountains, extremely laid-back environment with picnic tables and bags to play outside and local art on the walls, oh yeah, and great beer. I had a sampler so was […]

Renegade Hammer & Sickle

Posted on

I recently trekked to Everest Basecamp and took Renegade Brewing Co.’s Hammer & Sickle with me. It’s a rich and roasty, malty, dark stout with a big finish of dark chocolate. At 9% ABV, one heck of a beer to sip on at 17,500 feet. Renegade Brewing Co. 925 W 9the Ave. Denver, CO 80204 […]
