Craft Beer Summer School 2019

Welcome to Craft Beer Summer School 2019! Join 12 of Denver's unique breweries on a journey into the depths of brewing and around the world. Starting Thursday June 6th at 7pm, you'll visit a new craft brewery every week and gain in-depth knowledge of the science and methodology of what they do best.

Learn the science of brewing ingredients with CO-Brew. Explore the wide world of adjuncts with The Intrepid Sojourner Beer Project. Delve into the world of IPAs and hops with Alpine Dog Brewing Company, dig into sour and mixed culture fermentation with Baere Brewing Company. Take your palate to Germany and Belgium at Bierstadt Lagerhaus and Bruz Beers respectively.

We are excited to welcome new breweries this year too! Join Spice Trade Brewing to learn about exotic ingredients. Travel to China with Jade Mountain Brewing Company and through the varied landscapes of Latin America with Dos Luces.
