Prologue: About Fiction Beer Company
“If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.” ― Toni Morrison
One year ago, Ryan Kilpatrick and his wife Christa Kilpatrick brought Morrison’s quote to life and established Fiction Beer Company as the first brewery on Colfax Avenue. Nestled in the East Denver neighborhoods of Park Hill, Montclair, Stapleton, Mayfair, and Lowry, Fiction has become a local favorite. Their motto is “to rewrite the Denver beer scene by combining the two wonderfully imaginative crafts of beer and literature together.” A year later, they have successfully brought their dream to life: releasing over 28 different styles of beer, all of which tie into the world of literature.
Chapter 1: What’s on Tap
Feely Effects ABV 5.75%
Do you remember your favorite childhood drink? If you were awesome, you’d remember the amazing taste of chocolate milk in those kid-sized cartons. Now imagine that chocolaty flavor combined with green tea into your favorite adulthood drink: craft beer! Feely Effects does just this. This Green Tea Chocolate Milk stout is one of my favorites from Fiction, since trying it for the first time at Parade of Darks last December. And you know what makes this brew tip the iceberg? It is now available both on tap and in bombers!
H is for Hops ABV 6.0%
Here in Colorado, we’re all about drinking local, farm-fresh, and organic out the roof! H is for Hops is the perfect way to combine all three. Ryan Kilpatrick paired with a local hop farmer from The Garden (a park hill urban farm) to create this fresh-hopped brew. Imagine the most aromatic, juiciest, Chinook hops you can think of. This brew has it all. Tasty, refreshing, and made with love!
