80’s Biking Brewery Tour

This past week was back to school…so for the final bang of summer I put together a biking brewery tour with some friends.

Of course, there had to be a theme so we went 80’s style!!

We started our quest around 1 pm and headed to the first stop.

Strange Brewing Co.

Strange Brewing Company is a newer brewery…their doors opened May 2010. They are very small right now but have plans to expand! :)

This small brewery gives a very welcoming, friendly and communal environment.

Strange has some great beers with Cherry Kriek being one of the unique ones. Its base is a dark Belgian wheat and then it is packed with cherries and then aged in oak. It pours red with a tinted red head. There is a very strong cherry flavor but it is more tart and not too sweet.

Cherry Kriek

The Cherry Kriek was tasty but I don’t think I could have a whole pint of it unless I was sipping it while enjoying some dark chocolate or brownies :) Check out their website to find out when you can taste their beers! :D

On to the next brewery…

Denver Beer Company

Denver Beer Company, for only being open a year, is a hopping place! Great location and open bar area with patio keeps the place lively.

There beer list is constantly changing so there aren’t any favorite beers to tell about but check out my previous review to read more.

River North Brewery

Black Betty & Big Red

River North Brewery is another small brewery that has some room to grow :) The tap room is small but the brewing area is fairly large.

River North is located in downtown Denver. It was started by a former engineer, Matt Hess, and his wife. Hess now engineers some great brews!

Their beers were very enjoyable…the Belgian IPA and the Quadrupel were delicious! I plan to visit them again soon and write a more elaborate review :)

After three breweries it was time to call it quits but it was a great time!! I hope to make the Biking Brewery Tour a tradition!

  1. OMG I wish I could’ve participated! That looks like it was so much fun, what a great idea! But, I am a horrible bike rider (I have no clue why)–riding a bike during a brew tour could be a recipe of disaster for me lol

    • haha ya I was wearing leg warmers and that was too hot!! I got ready in about 5 minutes so I missed the big hair ;)

      And unfortunately?! The 80’s are awesome!! :)
