Whether you're attending the Great American Beer Festival at the Colorado Convention Center or not, there's plenty to do around town that week. We're running complimentary buses from downtown to our Littleton brewery for free tours, and we're hosting music events and lots of tap takeovers. Check it out!...
Our good friends, Cargo and Erin, came by the brewery yesterday for a visit.
~ Cargo's the one in front :) ~ They're with Freedom Service Dogs (FSD), a local nonprofit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by rescuing
dogs and custom training them for individual client needs.
We donated $1 of every paid Littleton brewery tour over a 6-month period to FSD. Thanks to all who came and enjoyed a tour. Together we raised $5,000 for this amazing organization! Did you know that FSD doesn't charge its clients for the services they provide? They rely on charitable giving to custom train dogs for specific client needs, and they provide lifetime support for every service dog. Their clients include children, veterans and active duty military, and other adults.
We were honored to host On Tap with KBCO Presents: Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats on August 20th. Those who joined us enjoyed an amazing line up of artists, sunny yet cool weather, lots o' friends and beer, and the knowledge that
they were helping a really great cause. Project C.U.R.E. is the
largest provider of donated medical supplies and equipment to developing countries around the world. International headquarters are close by - right
in Centennial, CO. On August 20th, as a collective group of fun-loving, foot-stomping festival goers, we raised many thousands of dollars for Project

Today we kick off the fall season by releasing the first installment of our Nitro Series seasonal line: Nitro Pumpkin Spice Latte stout. Infused with nitrogen, Nitro Pumpkin Spice Latte is a heartwarming stout to be enjoyed after a hike to see the aspen leaves turning or while watching a football game with friends. Pumpkin beers continue to proliferate the market, but we're among the first to release a Pumpkin Spice Latte recipe that is infused with nitrogen.
We've teamed up with the Broncos and Mile High Stadium to bring United in Orange Pale Ale to home games this season! Be sure to look for United in Orange starting with Saturday's first home preseason game against the 49ers. Brewed with orange juice and orange peel, it salutes the Orange & Blue. Mandarina hops reveal aromas of tangerine and citrus which complement the juicy orangeness. Additional hops provide balance to the subtle sweet character of pale malt and orange juice. Its crisp, hoppy finish cleanses the palate so you can keep yelling for the Broncos! Look for United in Orange on tap throughout the stadium and in our signature Breckenridge Brewery bar in the South Stands!
This weekend, hundreds of bands from all over the country will take the stage at 17 different venues along South Broadway as part of The Underground Music Showcase. This year marks Denver's 16th annual UMS, July 28th-31st. The UMS benefits The Denver Post Community Foundation, a non-profit organization that raises money to improve and enrich lives within the community through arts, youth, education, and human service.
