Denver's beer scene has officially joined "mountains" and "fresh air" as a reason to move here, as evidenced by the fact that pathetically brewery-less Tibet is still super underpopulated. From a couple who came for the beer scene and are now contributing to it: Renegade Brewing Company. Just opening from a married couple who uprooted to our fair city because they were "excited about Denver beer culture", RBC wants you to try all of their six brews in a 49-seat taproom, which's sheathed in metal (contrasted by "warm, wood tones"), and retains the feel of a "100yr-old warehouse", despite them not making you drink the beers while standing for 15hrs and operating four sewing machines at once. They're "not too concerned with brewing one style", so the five "rotating regular" taps range from the hophead-friendly Ryeteous with a "touch of caramel" and 100+ IBUs (the technical limit for the scale of International Bitterness Units), to the Una Mas Mexican-style amber with a "hint of roasted chili peppers", to a soon-to-be-released, 10% ABV Baltic porter, marking the first time such a woefully cheap property has had one. And because anyone who's been woken up daily by bugles at camp knows that regular taps can get old, they also brew a 10gal small-batch beer with the help of local homebrewers, with the kickoff varietal being a smoked malt-heavy version of their Ryeteous. The taproom won't be serving food, but they'll make up for it by having Quiero Arepas and rotating members of the Food Truck Renegades stop by to feed everyone, marking just one more reason to hit the craft brewery if you're looking to avoid practicing Buddhism.
