The flavor enthusiast who likes their drinks with an edge will be in for a treat at Rock Bottom Brewery in downtown Denver, one of the breweries on our LoDo (lower downtown) tour. They started brewing beer in 1991 and after 25 years they have accumulated over 125 major medals and awards. There is a hop range designed to please every palate with IBU’s ranging from 8 to 85. The selection is not limited to the ever popular standbys but even these offer a distinctive mark. On tap presently at Rock Bottom Brewery per their web page are some of these pours:
- Liquid Sun Saison, authentic French farmhouse style ale, with ABV of 8.1% lends itself to sipping slowly.
- El Chupacabra, a Mexican style ale that boasts the sweetness of corn.
- Chili Kolsch awakens the senses with jalapeno, serrano and poblano peppers.
- The taps also serve up various IPA’s, black india ale, hefeweizen and barley wine.
Every Friday night there is live music that starts at 7pm. There are also special events monthly which are advertised on their website.
Not only are there great sips but great eats as well. The menu has a large selection of staple brew house appetizers such as pretzels and wings but also apps with a twist such as cotija cheese and chorizo sausage stuffed pretzel bites. The comprehensive menu has entrees, salads, desserts and a full bar menu.
Happy hour is Monday to Friday 3-6:30.
