5 Denver Microbreweries to Experience

BY Gabriela Reyes


Denver sits close to the top of the list for the most microbreweries in our city at 79 total, second only to Portland, Oregon, with 83. With over 70 breweries to explore, it may seem like a daunting task to try them all. We have five breweries who participated in Pint Day that we feel are worthy of pouring you and your friends one of their refreshing beers on draft. Fingers crossed that warm weather is on the way again and you can enjoy the rays from one of these patios. Grab your crew and head out for a brew. 

Alpine Dog Brewing Company

1308 E 17th Ave, Denver, CO 80218 

For a sleek, exposed brick, colorful bar, and “crisp vibes,” Alpine Dog Brewing Company is the perfect modern ambiance to grab a beer in good company. They offer a rotating menu of 16 house beers featuring an IPA, stout, pale ale, Mexican lager, sour, and brown ale beers on draft. If you prefer a different beverage, enjoy a hard seltzer, kombucha, ginger beer, root beer, a cup of joe, or other select items. Visit their new location in the Uptown neighborhood.

Public Offering Brewing Co

1736 S Broadway, Denver, CO 80210

Platte Park gained a new brewery last November with the grand opening of Public Offering Brewing Co. The multiple garage doors that open up on warm days, light wood furnishing, and yellow-accented interior create a lively gathering place. Meanwhile, the window paneling surrounding the tanks maintains the open concept while showcasing the art of brewing. Visit them to taste over 10 beers on tap and their newly opened expansive patio on these upcoming sunny days. 

Seedstock Brewery Company

499 Lowell Blvd, Denver, CO 80204

Seedstock Brewery Company, who just celebrated their seventh anniversary, describe themselves as, “straightforward craft beer on West Colfax with Eastern European roots”. In line with their origins, they are currently featuring 11 beers on draft including a Czech Pilsner, Winter Warmer – English Ale, Munich Helles, and Baltic Porter. Stop by the Sloan’s Lake neighborhood to visit this brewery on the corner of Colfax and Lowell, and look for the yellow building.

Branded Oak Brewing

470 Broadway, Denver, CO 80203

Beyond pouring you a glass of beer, wine, or seltzer, Branded Oak Brewing is a great place for the community. On Tuesdays, you can test your random knowledge at trivia, on Wednesdays you can flex your fitness with their Running Club, catch a Late Night Comedy show on select Fridays, and teachers can cheers to the end of the work week with an honorary BOGO deal. To sip on a beer while partaking in a fun activity, visit them near the corner of 5th Street and Broadway.

Berkeley Alley Beer Co

4342 Tennyson St, Denver, CO 80212

This “secret” brewery’s physical building is located on the northern end of the Tennyson corridor near the corner of 44th Street. Berkeley Alley Beer Co. is literally accessed through the alley. In observance of “Thirsty Thursdays”, you can knock back your full pour beer for $2 off from 3 p.m. through 6 p.m. Head over and surprise your drinking pal with this hidden location to sample their 10 beers on draft.
