Oskar Blues Brewery + Perrin Brewing = Happy Michigander ColoradoTransplants

Oh,… you haven’t heard of Perrin Brewing, you Colorado hipsters? That’s because it’s that Michigander brew… that great mitten state style! Remember, once upon a time, we lived there – have to give credit where credit’s due! And, amazingly enough, Grand Rapids, MI, is a huuuuuge Craft Beer city. Continue reading

Spring Patios to Visit in Denver

SPRING IS HERE, and we’ve got patios on the brain. Here’s a list of a few of our faves and where in Denver you can find them.

DBC comp

Denver Bike Cafe. DenverSpeax, Spring 2014.

#1. Denver Bike Cafe – 1308 E 17th Ave, Denver, CO

We often hang out at DBC to study, meet with Denverspeax partners, and simply relax. They serve coffee, brews, and food with a smile on their faces and rad music playing. Check out DBC for their beer & cheese tastings that they hold out on the patio in the summer, too – they’re big supporters of local businesses and hosting local events spotlighting them. Also, hooray for picnic table seating! Click here to read more about this cool place on DenverSpeaxContinue reading

A Delicious Sunday Brew & a Broncos Game

Beer goes with football – it’s just how it works. Today, we’re partaking in both of Denver’s awesome pastimes and watching the game at Black Shirt Brewing.

Pictured above is the oh-so-tasty Imperial Chai Red Porter. Robust coffee flavor with hints and highlights of clove, cinnamon, and ginger. A delicious winter porter that everyone needs to try.

Thanks for having the games on, BSB! Even though the Bronco’s game didn’t turn out the way we’d hoped…

The Hipster Speed Ball – The Student’s Drink of Choice

“Hipster Speedball”. Well, that immediately sounds drug related. No worries – it’s not. Just a new, funny nickname for a beer combination I had this afternoon at the delightful Denver Bicycle Cafe.

Thanks, Denver Bike Cafe, for the great brew! I feel accomplished and relaxed. Goal achieved. Photo Credit: Kirsten Ebey, 2014.

 

1 part Wynkoop Cow Town Milk Stout & 1 part espresso, the Hipster Speedball is the perfect craft brew choice for the student trying to hammer out some work. Visit Denver Bike Cafe today to party with them on their 3rd birthday! Cake at 7 pm MST sharp. Don’t be late.

We were given the opportunity to sit down and explore the mind of Chad Miller CEO and co-founder of Black Shirt Brewing.  Continue reading
