Beer Man

A dozen new breweries on tap for the Denver Metro area by spring 2013

Breweries, big and small, have been opening at a dizzying pace over the past year along the Front Range, from Colorado Springs to Windsor and everywhere in between. Denver alone welcomed eight new breweries in the past twelve months, while Boulder County added at least eight, including four within the city limits.

And the craft beer gods will keep on giving. Over the next six months or so, another ten breweries -- that we know -- are slated to open within the same regional footprint, many of them small neighborhood nanobreweries. Here's our list.
