HOLIDAY PARTY IN THE BREWERY
Eight South Denver Metro Breweries get together to offer collaboration beer and limited edition pint glass to local patrons.
Dec 5th, 2014, eight breweries along the C-470 corridor will begin pouring the first collaboration brew; Bock C-470, a special recipe beer, designed and brewed by all eight brewers. The brewers from Blue Spruce Brewing Company & Restaurant, 3 Freaks Brewery, Lone Tree Brewing Company, 38th State Brewing Company, Grist Brewing Company, Living the Dream Brewing Company, CB Potts Brewery-Highlands Ranch, and Rock Bottom Brewery-South Denver, got together to design a recipe for their Weizenbock. This style of beer is a more powerful Dunkel Weizen with a pronounced estery alcohol character and complex malt characters of dark fruits.
“As a Colorado brewer, I think we might be the first to do a freeway collaboration. We're certainly the first that I know of in recent history. So to me, that shows we are trying to reach out, expand beyond the confines of our buildings, get involved with each other as brewers to support and mentor across company lines. And that's what being a Colorado brewer is all about,” stated Rob Kevwitch Ph.D., brewer and founder of Grist Brewing. “The south suburban brewery scene has arrived, it's in full force, and we're here to stay.”
In addition to this collaboration beer, the breweries are offering a "beer passport” that can be picked up on or after December 5th at any of the eight locations. The passport will be stamped as patrons visit each location and the first 300 people that have their passport stamped from all eight breweries will receive a free limited edition C-470 Collaboration pint glass. The glass is etched with all eight brewery’s logos.
Grist Brewing Company Background
Our vision of craft beer can be summed up in a few words: Science Balanced With Creativity. Now we know some of you folks out there will say that our beers are not as creative as some of our craft beer brethren. The funny thing about making beer is that it is much harder to create a great craft beer within a style than it is to simply add adjuncts and flavors to beers and create the illusion of quality by overwhelming the palate. That being said, we will always have 5 core beers that are held to strict stylistic and scientific guidelines. We analyze these beers in our lab to make sure we are within the guidelines and that each batch is consistent. For the more daring folks out there, we always have 4-7 beers that are a bit outside the box. From Imperial IPAs made with hops only from Colorado to Juniper Berry Belgian Singles to Colorado Wildflower Honey Blonde Ales. We will always push the limits of what we can brew for you balancing science and creativity.Our passion is not just held to liquid in a glass, but also to the community around us that makes our so-called “work” possible. We strive to participate in community events, sponsor local charitable festivals and invest in our economy by purchasing our state of the art, new American made 20 barrel brewhouse. We want to always be a strong presence in the community that supports our efforts. So, stop by - visit the taproom, soak up some Colorado sun on our patio with your family and friends for an afternoon or evening after a day well lived in our fine craft beer state of mind!
