Denver’s Best Craft Beers for National Beer Day

April 7th is National Beer Day! Denver is home to over 100 brewpubs, taprooms, and craft breweries so it choosing a beer can be overwhelming! Here are 7 of Denver’s best brews you can taste test today!

1. Roswell 

Where to find it: Black Project Spontaneous & Wild Ales
1290 S. Broadway A51, Denver, CO 80210

Roswell is a lambic-style sour beer that was spontaneously fermented and barrel-aged over the course of about nine months; it was then re-fermented in five batches with five different kinds of fruit: apricot, blackberry, cranberry, guava and raspberry. And each one was like a burst of that fruit times ten, with aromas to match and magical simplicity that belied the complexity with which they were concocted

2. Public Red Ale 

Where to find it: Blackshirt Brewing Co
3719 Walnut St., Denver, CO 80205

Our flagship beer – hoppy, dry, and complex with aromas of juniper, lemon and fresh cut wildflowers.

3. Rosemary Sourdough Saison

Where to find it: Cannonball Creek Brewing Company
393 N. Washington Ave, Golden, CO 80403

An ale inspired by the perfect loaf of bread. This loose interpretation of the Saison style is brewed with fresh organic Rosemary and features a subtle tartness from the contribution of acidulated malt. The result is a dry, refreshing ale with a delicate yet distinct aroma of fresh Rosemary.

4. Legal Wheat

Comrade Brewing Co.
7667 E Iliff Avenue Ste. F, Denver, CO 80231

Legal Wheat is an unfiltered American wheat ale featuring a citrusy flavor from Lemondrop and Citra hops with a distinct cloudy golden color. Smooth, refreshing and light bodied

 

6. Coffee Coconut Stout

WeldWerks Brewing Company
508 8th Ave., Greeley

A creamy and unique beer that is worth the drive to Greeley. This is what you want when you are looking for a coffee stout with a tropical kick. It is a toasted coconut and coffee explosion that will leave you wanting more.

7. Rare Trait

Cerebral Brewing
1477 Monroe St., Denver
An explosion of mango, pineapple and something a bit sweeter in tangerine. Hazy IPAs such as this are often filled with hops, but this one doesn’t overpower with its bitterness. The mouthfeel is smooth and easy. It is the perfect beer for someone interested in trying this style for the first time.
