Swung by Great Divide to treat myself to their new release…Rye’t Meow (a cat themed Double Rye). It was fantastic. If you’re in town I suggest checking it out.
I said in my review I would return to River North…. and I did. River North Brewery in Denver released their Second Anniversary Ale this weekend and I was lucky enough to try it out. The bartender described it as “tropical” and I agreed. Its like Belgium meets Hawaii. Anny Ale #2 has those good farmhouse flavors you would expect in a Belgian Golden but it is also sweet. The sweetness tasted sort of like a pineapple but without the tartness. The other pictures are of BPR, which I’m now addicted to, and Hello, Darkness which is also delish. If you want to read more about those, check out my review of River North from a few weeks back.
Happy Anniversary River North Brewery!
Can you imagine a tiny little beer haven where they play Alt-J through the speakers, have beautiful bartenders, and a surprisingly large barrel aging program? This sounds kind of like a beer dream doesn’t it? Well, its real and its called River North Brewery. Tucked away in a small building near Coors Field in Downtown Denver is this somewhat small Belgian inspired brew palace. Although it is slight in size, it pumps out beers with big flavors. Maybe you’ve heard of some of them like Hoppenberg Uncertainty Principle or J. Marie. If you haven’t, you should try to get your hands on some of them. If you’re in town, visit their intimate taproom (which is no larger than my living room and kitchen combined) and grab a seat at the bar. You won’t be disappointed. We tried every beer on tap that night. When we left we were slightly tipsy and very happy with our overall experience.
