Denver is considered by many as the unofficial craft beer capital of the world. There are a couple craft beer breweries in and around the Mile-high City, and setting your brewery apart from the rest can be a challenge.
But the people of Denver are nothing but intuitive. That is why it is not surprising to see different craft breweries with offerings that are pretty unique to them.
Here are some
They are pretty new in the brewery scene compared to others but they have already set themselves apart. They take advantage of their golden location because it is a pretty good spot for outdoor activities like running, trekking, and biking. They have a rotating schedule of food trucks and live music acts so one visit would likely not be anything like the next. Plus, they experiment a lot on their beers and there is always a new flavor to try.

This brewery has two locations, one on Longmont, the other on Niwot. What sets this brewery apart is that they have music recommendations for their beers. For example, if you plan to drink their 1956 Golden Ale, which is their lightest beer, they recommend pairing it with classic rock. If you are in the mood for some AC/DC, Insane Rush IPA is the beer for that. If you think about it, it does make sense. We often listen to music when we drink beer. Why not recommend a genre for specific beer choices.

This brewery treats their beers like they do books. They have different genres for each beer group. Of course, you have the classics. This includes well-known favorites like IPA, Scotch Ale or Wit. Then they have Mystery and Adventure. These are the more far-out flavors like their We Can’t-elope, which is Gose with Cantaloupe. Or their Robopsychologist, which is NE Style Imperial IPA with Mango. There are other genres, but it would be better for you to discover them yourself.
