Copper Kettle Brewing opens today just off Parker Road
Copper Kettle Brewing, a new brewery on the border of Denver and Aurora, opens today at 3 p.m. with five beers on draft -- a saison, a pale ale, a helles, a summer ale and an altbier -- and a beautiful 52-seat living room-like tasting room.
Owned by Jeremy Gobien and Kristen Kozik, the Copper Kettle, 1338 South Valentia Street, Unit 100, will be celebrating all weekend; there will also be food trucks on hand: Chicago Louie on Friday and Basic Kneads Pizza on Saturday.
Next weekend, Copper Kettle will add three more beers, a Mexican chocolate stout, a Roggenbier rye and a dunkelweiss.
"We are ready to have people come through the doors," says Kozick, who says the brewery has been in the planning stages for two years and fills a geographical niche for a brewery in the Denver area.
"We wanted to have more of a coffee shop feel rather than a sports bar feel," she adds. "We want this to be a local hangout that people can walk to and fell relaxed."
