Limited-release throwback beer is made with water from the Brown Palace’s underground aquifer
We are now serving a new beer we’ve brewed in honor of the 120th anniversary of the opening of Denver’s famed Brown Palace Hotel & Spa.
1892 Artesian Lager is a custom-made, retro-minded beer we brewed with water from the underground aquifer that supplies the Brown Palace’s water.
Colorado brewers have been touting the state’s water for over 150 years, so we’re adding our chapter to that longstanding tradition. All while showcasing the Brown Palace and one of its many treasures.”
The beer list for our July 21 United Tastes of Belgium now holds over 50 Belgian-style and Belgian beers. The latest beer list is here.
This year our United Tastes of Belgium takes place on a very important day in beer history: Belgian Independence Day.
Each year on July 21, Belgians honor the anniversary of the day their nation secured its independence from the Netherlands in 1831.
Learn more about this important day at Belgian Revolution.
And please ponder this: If Belgium had not gained its liberty, would it have become the brewing wonder it is today?
Who knows, instead of beer, Belgium might now be famous for its genever, "coffee shops" and windmills.
Perhaps our brewing pals in Fort Collins, CO would've called their company New Netherlands Brewing, and the term "Dutch treat" would be a beer reference.
And our event this month would showcase, well, wooden footwear. The horror!
