Beerstagrams 10/11- 10/18

October 18, 2013 |

Have you recovered from GABF yet? I’m not sure we have either. I know a few PorchDrinkers who were claiming a hiatus from beer after the weekend of craft beer heaven. For the record, the hiatus lasted about 12 hours. There were bottle shares and brewery tours, but most importantly, lots of good times and good drinks. Tristan shared a few drinks and played question master with Stone Brewing’s Greg Koch. Let’s all cheers to another amazing (however, maybe a tad more relaxing) weekend!

Copper Kettle Brewery

February 25, 2013 |

Those of us who live in Colorado are lucky that we have such an amazing craft beer scene available to us. Most can find a local brewery within a few miles of them at any given time. At this particular moment, I am appreciating this fact as I’m in my company’s plane somewhere above Kansas on my way home to Denver, and craving an amazing craft beer. Copper Kettle Brewery, located at 1338 S. Valencia Street, in Denver near Parker and Mississippi, will be my first stop after I land. They opened with the intent to be the local “Cheers” brewery for those who live near them. Don’t let this fool you though, as they make some amazing beers and have won a few medals at GABF since their inception in 2011. Their most well-known beer is their Mexican Chocolate Stout, a spicy brew you will not forget. A gold medal winner at GABF in 2011 in the Herb and Spice Beer category, you will want to try this one when you visit.
