Strange Brewing Company logoStrange Brewing Company - Strange Brewing Company is the realization of a dream shared by two out-of-work IT Techs, John Fletcher and Tim Myers. Two avid homebrewers, John and Tim had worked together at the Rocky Mountain News before that newspaper closed in February, 2009. Suddenly unemployed, they needed a Plan B. So with their combined retirement savings, Tim’s and John’s homebrew recipes, and Tim’s 20-gallon homebrew equipment, they set out to open Strange Brew. Since opening on May 19th, 2010, as a one-barrel microbrewery, Strange Brewing Company has won numerous awards, including a Gold Medal at the Great American Beer Festival.

Prost Brewing  Co-  The Brewery was made by the Ziemann GmbH in 1963. It was installed at the Bucher Bräu in the German city of Grafenau and used there until 1984. In 1984 it was overhauled and sold to Brauerei Hümmer of Breitengüßbach, Germany, a village in the Franconian region of Bavaria.

Brauerei Hümmer started brewing beer in the Franconian village of Breitengüßbach in 1642. The brewery served the town for over 350 years until the spring of 2011. It made several styles including Altfränkisches Dunkel Bier, a rare specialty beer that we will revive Denver.

Why Denver Is Considered the Capital City of America’s Brewing Industry

Denver has frequently been referred to as “the Napa valley of beer,” as the city of Denver (and the state of Colorado) are at the center of America’s brewing industry. There are more than 100 microbreweries in Colorado, the vast majority of which are within Denver’s city limits. Denver is also host to the world-famous Great American Beer Festival, an annual event that brings the top brewers in the country to Denver every fall. Finally, large brewers Miller-Coors and Anheuser Busch both have substantial operations in Colorado, with the Miller-Coors brewery on the Western edge of Denver said to be the largest brewery in the world.
