These openings will solidify 2014 as the biggest year for new breweries in Denver in recent history. At least a dozen have gone into business within the city limits since January, bringing the total to forty (depending on how you are counting). In addition, Joyride Brewing opened in Edgewater, just a few feet from Denver's border.
When these six turn on the lights, we'll be at 46, and there may be at least one more before the year is out, which would give us 47. And that doesn't include the suburbs: look for Locavore Beer Works in Littleton and Grossen Bart Brewing in Longmont to open in November as well. Here's a rundown of what's to come.
