Denver Beer Company is a laid back brewery dedicated to serving their community one-of-a-kind beers. The brewery is located in the LoHi district of Denver, right next to the South Platte River, REI, Wilderness Exchange, and other hip restaurants and bars. The open space is a great gathering spot for evenings and afternoons.
What Makes It Great
Denver Beer Co.’s location, atmosphere, and brews make it a hotspot for beer lovers of all ages. The brewery is a ten-minute walk from Union Station and other popular downtown venues. There is plenty of indoor seating and an outdoor beer garden full of picnic tables, flowers, and overhanging vines. Guests can enjoy hanging out with dogs, playing board games, or sipping on bargain flights. DBC has enough room to fit every visitor, but still embodies a cozy setting that makes beer drinking all the more fun. Speaking of beers, DBC is an expert on making unique brews for every palate possible. Some favorites include: the sweet n’ sour grapefruit-colored Princess Yum Yum Raspberry Kolsch, the piney west coast style Incredible Pedal IPA, the award winning dry hopped Sun Drenched Ale, and the sweet and smoky Graham Cracker Porter. DBC always has a generous list of beers on tap that go against the grade of standard beer flavors. In the past they’ve brewed a salty Oyster Stout, Japanese-influenced Osaka Blonde, anniversary pale ales, and fruity sours. DBC rarely repeats recipes, so even the locals won’t get bored at this taproom.

DBC has a recurring Run Club, Tuesday Trivia night, occasional sunndyside strolls, and the #DBCExplorer social media challenge.
