River North Brewery: A Rising Gem in RiNo

River North or RiNo

River North Art District

Situated north of Coors Field is an up and coming artists’ enclave called River North Art District, or RiNo for short. Amongst its Nuevo art sculptures, galleries, studios and eclectic shops is a rave worthy place that’s sure to satisfy one’s thirst for craft beers. It’s called the River North Brewery.

Since it opened in February 2012, the venue has produced so many fantastic brews that it’s already expanded its production area multiple times. The last one took place in November 2013. But you don’t have to take their ongoing expansions as sole proof of the onsite brew master Matt Hess’ brilliance. There are also the reviews on Yelp and The Denver Magazine 5280‘s shout outs to consider. They all add up to one simple truth. River North Brewery is quickly becoming one of the city’s beloved gems.

Some of River North’s Beers

So which beers are creating all of the buzz and why? Some of them may be found in the brewery’s series of whiskey barrel aged delights. Belgian-style beers with notes of oak and rye, they are one of the pints down favorites of Denver. Word has it that the River North Brewery’s crew will be adding another brew to the popular series at the end of January 2014. This one is expected to be titled B-Side Avarice. Highly rated, Belgian-style, double IPA brews like the Hoppenberg Uncertainty Principle is another “must try” crowd favorite. It’s a high ABV, orange hued, hoppy brew that sports a beautiful off-white head with every pour.

River North doesn’t serve food, but there is usually a food truck nearby. One that tends to haunt the place from time to time is East Coast Joe’s Grey Ghost. She’s a solar powered truck that’s home to some of the best seafood, deviled eggs and East Coast fare in Denver.
