Cerveceria Colorado – Grand Opening on Cinco de Mayo 2018
(Denver, CO) – Cerveceria Colorado, a craft brewery focused on celebrating the culture and flavors of Mexico, will open its doors to the community on Cinco de Mayo, 2018, with a grand opening fiesta. The new brewery is located at 1635 Platte Street, the space that formerly housed the Denver Beer Co. Barrel Room.

Cerveceria Colorado will brew beers utilizing traditional Mexican ingredients and flavors such as cinnamon, chillies, nopal, chocolate, mole, lime, and agave. Many of the beer recipes were created in collaboration with Mexican craft breweries including Cerveceria de Colima, La Bru, Cerveceria Escollo, and Casa Cerveza Cru Cru, and highlight the heritage and unique character of Mexico’s diverse regions. The opening beer lineup includes:
- CoCo – Chocolate pale ale
- Señor Piña – Pineapple Blonde
- ¡Venga! – Traditional Mexican lager (try this Chelada style with rimmed salt and a lime wedge.)
- Barrica Reserva – Tequila barrel aged Saison
- Churro Stout – Sweet Stout aged on vanilla beans and cinnamon, created in collaboration with Cerveza Cru Cru in Mexico City

“We can’t wait to open our doors to the community,” stated Denver Beer Co. co-founder Patrick Crawford. “Our goal for this brewery is to create a welcoming, inclusive atmosphere for friends, family and neighbors to explore the rich and diverse flavors and culture of Mexico through craft beer.”
On the first 6 Fridays after opening, Cerveceria Colorado will host “Happy Hours” to benefit different non-profit organizations who work in and for Denver’s latino communities. 20% of proceeds from the events will go directly to these six organizations which include Museo de las Americas, Latin American Educational Foundation (LEAF), The Challenge Foundation, Colorado Immigrants Rights Coalition, and Latino Peace Officers Association.
