Denver Brewing Scene
Recently checked Cheeky Monk Belgium Beer Cafe in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. Anyone else brewing themselves in the area?
Well.... that list didn't provide a lot of information. I will reply with a small amount of info in hopes that a true brew-head will chime in and set the record mo-straightah.
* Breckenridge brews their own beer and it's pretty swell stuff. They have several locations and I think the do all of the brewing and bottling at the joint on 4th and Kalamath.
* Chophouse- they brew and I can't help but think they share product with
* Rock Bottom brewing *and with*
* Walnut Brewing- if you had beer at one of these 3 places you've had it at all 3. Same company and nearly the same concept.
*Sandlot brewing at Coors Field is an extension of Blue Moon which is an extension of Coors (shocker). I'm not sure they brew there or just serve Blue Moon products?
*Wynkoop brews and does a decent job- they are owned by whatever the Hickenlooper conglomerate is called (Wazee Supper Club, Cherry Cricket, etc...)
*Great Divide brewing- they are big but have a friendly, cozy tap room as an extension of the brewery.
Now for the true brewpubs:
*Bull and Bush is a true brew pub in Glendale. Great stuff.
*Ironworks in Lakewood does a nice job
*Chesire Cat in Arvada- It's been a while but I loved the english-style offerings
*Dry Dock brewing in Aurora is a beer maker paradise. Amazingly good brews and a shop for supplies attached.
