Studies in late night Memorial Day weekend festivities including homebrewed beer and martinis. Yum.
Sippin’ on some Colorado Native this holiday weekend. A decent brew. Apparently it’s made with 99% Colorado ingredients hence the “native” part of the name. Only some of the hops are not from here. This year they started a program to change that. They gave out hop rhizomes to locals who are interested in growing some hops for them to use in years to come. Love the logo!
The Denver Beer Company is new to the local scene. Stopped in to get a pint after a visit to Savory Spice shop down on Platter River Drive. It’s in a great location in a converted garage. They are one of the recent breweries here who are only selling their brews at their facility. Had the Smoked Lager, aka Rauchbier. Pretty refreshing! Will stop in again. Think the Platte Pils will be my next round. They don’t sell any food, but allow folks to bring their own snacks. I did see a food cart parked out front, so maybe there is a vendor selling grub at certain times. I asked the friendly server if they did happy hours and she said not yet, they are waiting for the buzz to die down in that they just opened a few weeks ago. And who would have thought no one had claimed their name yet in our very active Colorado brew scene. Denver-Beer-Company! So basic/classic. I want a T-shirt already.
