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.

Relegation ESB - We set out to make a great ESB. Something that can be enjoyed both on those hot spring days as well as those cool spring nights. Something that will transition our beer drinking palates from spring to summer. Something that had a smooth hop flavor and a mild malt finish. Something that was light to medium in body. Something low in alcohol that you can enjoy a lot of without feeling anything. Well, we achieved most of that. At the end of the boil we noticed the OG was a little higher than we wanted. We could dilute the wort to nail the numbers, but hey, it’s a Creative Beer, Tyler and rob aren’t allowed to be anal about the Creative Beers. So we let it ride. And behold, the Relegation ESB. Smooth hop flavor, mild malt finish, light to medium in body and…..well….7.0% ABV. That’s why we named it Relegation. It comes out at the end of soccer season in Europe and if your team got relegated, this will ease that pain.

For the more serious beer geeks out there or those wanting to know more: Here are the sales of craft beer based on style breakdown.  Not shocking.
