Highlands Ranch's First Production Brewery 

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!

That brewhouse above makes some damn good beer.  But what happens when we aren't 100% satisfied with the final product?  Watch the video.  It brings a tear to our eyes every time we watch it.  

Better to dump than serve crap though.

Basilia Baltic Porter - It's getting cold outside and who doesn't love a rich, dark beer when it's cold?  Our Basilia Baltic Porter has just the right richness, perfect for a cold day but not too much for those random 60 F days we all know we are going to get from time-to-time throughout the start of winter.  Check out the beer page for the stats and drop in to try it out.  Take a Beaker or Growler home and enjoy by the fire, although we think enjoying this one in a hot tub after a long day of skiing or snowboarding or snowshoeing or whatever your favorite outdoor winter sport is is best.

For the more serious beer geeks out there or those wanting to know more: This news is simply incredible.  A lot of craft breweries are getting bought up right now.  Not to fear, Grist isn't going anywhere.  But this is a good read.
