Denver, Colorado – April 6, 2015 – Today, Denver Microbrew Tour (DMbT) announced the addition of a new tour route in the River North Art District (RiNo), just north of Downtown Denver. The inaugural tour will be on Sunday, April 12, and will start at 12:15pm at Ratio Beerworks (2920 Larimer Street, Denver, CO 80205). Tours will then be offered every Sunday, starting at the same time and same location.
Similar to DMbT’s long-standing LoDo route, the RiNo route will include:
- visits to four local breweries, cideries, or tap rooms
- beer samples at each stop
- an in-depth lesson of how beer is made
- info about each location’s founders and the inspirations that led them to brew
- stories behind the street art and murals prevalent in RiNo
- just enough scandalous Denver history to keep things interesting
The new route will feature some of the newest and most exciting breweries in the Denver area, and will also include a visit to a cidery. “We want to showcase the best brewers Denver has to offer, and there is no better place to do it than in RiNo,” said DMbT founder, Steve Schneiter. “The heavy concentration of breweries here creates a great atmosphere of collaboration and friendly competition. These companies work together to push each other to make the best beer in Colorado, and are succeeding in doing so.”
Schneiter continued, “But the tour won’t be all about the breweries – we’ll also focus on the RiNo neighborhood. In RiNo, there are motorcycle shops next to wineries, junkyards across from breweries, and run-down diners next to upscale restaurants; it is the perfect combination of dive and elegance. The stories behind these businesses, and the inevitable changes that they will face in the coming years, craft a great narrative for Denver locals and tourists alike.”
Arline Kellog, a self-proclaimed Cider Wench at Stem Ciders (one of the stops on DMbT’s RiNo route), added, “We are excited to have such a great company showcasing our growing artisan brew district; we can’t wait to show people what craft cider is all about!”
DMbT’s RiNo route will visit Ratio Beerworks, Stem Ciders, Our Mutual Friend Tenth Acre and Brewery, and Epic Brewing Company. The tour will be offered weekly, on Sunday afternoons starting at 12:15pm and lasting until roughly 2:30pm. The cost is $29 per person and includes the tour and at least 10 samples of beer (or cider). For more information, visit www.denvermicrobrewtour.com.
