Five Colorado Breweries to Watch in 2017 From Big Beers Fest in Breckenridge

Alpine Dog Brewing, which has quietly been pushing boundaries for the past year, has really ramped up its game. Not only did it impress with a Bourbon Barrel Aged version of its Dyatlov Pass Incident Russian Imperial Stout, but it provided what may have been the most memorable beer of the fest: 2nd Anniversary Ale, an imperial stout aged in second-use bourbon barrels with Brettanomyces. Chocolatey, oaky and rich, it carried only faint wisps of bourbon, with a slightly more pronounced Brett character.

Denver Hopper

A Brewery at the Heart of Colfax

“Near the busiest part of the Colfax — next to the Ogden Theater – there is a fine brewery by the name of Alpine Dog Brewing that stands out from the herd by providing fresh eyes in the blurry vision of Denver’s most famous street.”

“Fresh Soul Grapefruit Session IPA was devilish and it stole my neon heart. It is low alcohol by volume at 4.5% but also hellfire dangerous because it is so easy to drink.”
