The Best Brews in Colorado
Just south of Denver, in Castle Rock, you can find the best brewhouse in Colorado, the 105 West Brewing Company. The short drive from Denver is well worth the trip. The beer is terrific, but it is the atmosphere, food, and friendly staff that make this place truly unique.
Their tasting room has seating for over 50 people and makes use of reclaimed, beetle-killed pine from local forests. Barrels from distilleries and wineries give a great earthy feel to their table tops. The servers are known to be fast and friendly. Perhaps that is because their employers treat them right, pay them a good wage and give them profit sharing.
16 beer taps of high-quality craft brews can keep even the most discerning taste buds happy. They brew beer right on-site with a 5 vessel brew system that can be set up to brew 3 barrel batches and 2 smaller batches at the same time. The house is usually packed, so if you find a type you really enjoy, get a growler filled to take home.
The 105 West Brewing Company features a variety of beer styles. If you like a lighter beer you may go for an American Blonde or a Blood Orange Gose, which has salty sour notes. For lovers of dark beers, the Colorado Stout is a fan favorite. There are Belgian-style ales and reds and browns, including the house fan favorite Deez Nuts. Their IPAs can really pack a punch. For example, the Jelly the Elder as an alcohol content of 10%. If you have one or more of these, please have a designated driver or call an Uber to get home.
If you become a big fan of this place, join the Case Club. With a subscription, you get first dibs on all the best beers and can pick up your monthly case of craft brew beer. You also get a special membership card that gives you extra discounts. Around the Denver area, be on the lookout for their food and beer trucks. They do catering and attend special events in the local area.
So if you are looking for the perfect place for a night out with the best beer around, make sure that the 105 West Brewing Company of Castle Rock is at the top of your list.
