Hops & Pie Hosts Drekker Brewing & WeldWerks Takeovers this Weekend
This upcoming weekend, Denver’s own Hops & Pie will host two terrific tap takeovers with Drekker Brewing Company on Friday, April 22, and then WeldWerks Brewing Company on Sunday, April 24. Excitingly, at least 16 different and hard-to-find beers will be available.
Drekker Brewing Co.
Beginning the fun tap takeover is Drekker Brewing Company from Fargo, North Dakota. To start, this Friday’s lineup includes 11 beers:
- Flizzard BA Stout with Oreo
- Hyper Scream, Ectogasm
- Bloody Hell
- Cuddle Bunny
- Berry Prrrt Parade
- Braaaaaaaains Strawberry Pineapple
- Braaaaaaaains Passionfruit Orange Guava
- Slang Cranberry Raspberry Lemon Strawberry
- Braaaaaaaains 450 N Slushy XL
- Pinky Promise BA
Highlight: Braaaaaaaains Series
With an entire catalog full of fun beer names and artwork, the extensive Braaaaaaaains series from Drekker is their fruit smoothie sours. In October, we highlighted their Strawberry, Blueberry, Banana installment. Looking ahead, three different versions are lined up for an ideal 80-degree Friday.

WeldWerks Brewing Anniversary Takeover
Ending the weekend, the WeldWerks tap takeover is in honor of the brewery’s seventh anniversary, which was commemorated last weekend at their Greeley taproom. Hops & Pie’s taps will have many WeldWerks options, including several hard-to-find beers like
- Extra Extra EXTRA Juicy Bits Triple IPA
- Worldwide Contract Double IPA
- Strawberry Cheesecake Berliner
- Blueberry Crunchee (collaboration with Other Half)
- Breakfast for Four
Highlight: Extra Extra EXTRA Juicy Bits Triple IPA
Now, WeldWerks likes to mess with their bits – Juicy Bits, of course. Since the beginning, the brewery’s flagship New England Style IPA, has been manipulated many times (e.g. Citra Extra Extra Juicy Bits, DDH Juicy Bits, Extra Extra Juicy Bits). For this birthday, and this special tapping at Hops & Pie, they have created a Triple IPA version. While the original Juicy Bits ABV sits at 6.7%, this anniversary beer pops up to 10.8% ABV.
