The final brewery in our Father’s Day series of father-son breweries is Living the Dream Brewing, located in one of Denver’s southwest suburbs. The brewery is very involved in the local community, but has still found the time to expand distribution across Colorado in recent months.
Second in our series of Denver-area father-son breweries, Seedstock Brewery had a long and successful history under brothers Ron and Jason Abbott before being sold to the McIlvenna family in late 2021.The McIlvennas look to continue making Seedstock’s flagship styles, while adding touches of their own heritage.
In honor of Father’s Day, we decided to look at father-son breweries that embody the true spirit of the holiday. While rare, these breweries let fathers and sons share their love of beer while also partnering in successful businesses. Over the course of the week we’ll look at three Denver-area breweries, starting with Diebolt Brewing.
Father, Dad, Pops, whatever you call your fatherly paternal figure in your life, means you will probably be planning gifts or plans for this Sunday the 21st. This year will be the 110th iteration of the holiday that started in 1910 in Spokane, Washington, and it’s going just as strong as ever. For the craft beer crowd, there can be no better gift than sharing the beers you have fallen in love with. Here are some specially picked our for the father figure in your life.
This weekend, we celebrate all the craft-beer-drinking dads out there. We celebrate the non-craft-beer-drinking dads out there too, sorta, but they’re probably not reading this, so whatever. As a father myself, my favorite thing about Father’s Day is spending the afternoon doing what I love the most: not being bothered. It’s true that on any old weekend, I could mow the lawn into nice, crispy lines, throw some meat on the grill and crack open a cold brewski. But on Father’s Day, I get to do all of that without anyone hassling me.
Anyway, the PorchDrinking team has been out and enjoying this fantastic weather! Fantastic of course being relative, and assuming you haven’t been in Colorado for the past two months. Where’s the goddamn sun? Anyway, the crew’s got some fantastic brews for you to consider sharing with dear old dad this weekend in this week’s What We’re Drinking.
My dad and I are the ultimate craft beer drinking buddies. We take father-daughter beer trips and are always looking for the tastiest brews! “We both have similar tastes, and it’s fun to compare beers with someone who gets me and has a seasoned palate,” he says. “Plus, you’re my daughter!” The apple certainly doesn’t fall far from the tree!
The Denver Beer Beat sheds light on news of brewery openings, special tappings, firkins and one-off batches, bottle releases, dinners, pairings, etc.
Father’s Day is right around the corner. I always enjoyed celebrating my dad on this great summer day but for the first time the tables are turning. My wife and I are expecting our first baby late this summer and after this year Father’s Day will certainly have a completely different meaning to me. As such this year is my last time not being part of the fathers’ club. So cheers to all of your special fathers in your life and honor them with the following six beers!
We honored the moms last month, and now it’s the dads’ turn. The PorchDrinking staff shares some dad stories, thoughts, and memories. Plus, two staffers find out their dads have a lot more in common than they thought.
