If you’ve recently been in the Denver metro area you may have noticed a brewery on your way to the mountains. Over Yonder Brewing Co. is located in Southwest Golden, CO near 1-70, a major highway into the mountains. It is also conveniently located close to the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater, making it a great place to stop for beer before a show.
Peak View Brewing in Greenwood Village, Colorado, was founded just two years ago, but the ideas of this brewery have a longer history. The founders, Sean Peters and Justen Coulfal, not only share a history of military service, but also a love of craft beer. Their shared dream of opening a brewery has been realized with a large variety of beers on tap to offer to their customers. They have also collaborated with other local businesses to expand their offerings. After creating one award winning beer with Branch & Barrel Distillery, Peak View Brewing was excited to collaborate again. “Their vision for complex and innovative whiskey matches our vision creating experimental and unique flavored brews,” explains Peters.
The community needed it. That’s the overwhelming reaction to Red Leg Brewing Co.’s new facility at 2323 Gardens of the Gods Rd. in Colorado Springs, CO. To say that people are raving is an understatement. The new facility has been highly anticipated since they announced the plans in December 2019. It took longer than expected, but it’s every bit worth the wait. This facility was built from the ground up specifically for Red Leg with plans to be a space “where community and culture meet”, says Todd Baldwin, President and Founder of Red Leg Brewing Co.
In addition to brewing beer, the founders of Lost Friend Brewing Co. have an exceptional ability to help lost dogs. They refer to them as “lost friends” and it became the namesake for Lost Friend Brewing Company. Lost Friend Brewing is so dog-centric that they have placed carabiners on tables for convenient securing of your furry friend. Any given day you can find a cute pup there to brighten your brewery experience. You can even find an archive of furry friends on their Instagram.
