X is for WestFaX Brewing Company
I was so close to finishing up my little A to Z Breweries project.
After V is for Vine Street Pub and Brewery, I cheated a little with "W is for Wits End Brewing Company" ... I only had X, Y, and Z left.
I even visited WestFaX Brewing Company back in the summer of 2017.
And then I just never finished up writing this post. After a few months, I thought that I should visit it again.
And then I forgot about the whole thing for awhile. I got lazy I guess.
Just in case you're new to this blog, and the concept of what I'm talking about ... check out Sheppy's Blog: A to Z ... I think you'll be able to figure out the concept. Pretty simple, I'm attempting to visit local breweries that I have not been to. I decided to go down the alphabet.
So far, I've found Denver-area breweries that have started with all the letters from A to W. Will I be able to finish off the alphabet?
I wasn't able to find a brewery whose name started with "X", so I took a little artistic license and went with one that had an X in the name. WestFaX Brewing Company
WestFaX Brewing Company is located on West Colfax Avenue in Lakewood Colorado.
6733 W Colfax Ave, Lakewood, CO 80214 to be exact. Right by Casa Bonita, which you probably are familiar with if you're from the Denver area.
It is a nice little cozy space. The first time I went it was extremely busy. On Saturday December 1 it was less busy, but it was early.
They don't serve food, but have a nice Food Truck Schedule on their website. And, there are nearby restaurants you can get food at too.
I had a couple of 4-beer flights.
The beer was delicious. No complaints at all.
So, I do fully endorse this brewery. Bring some food in. Drink some beer. Good stuff.
Here are the taproom hours:
Monday 3PM – 10PM
Tuesday 3PM – 10PM
Wednesday 3PM – 10PM
Thursday 3PM – 10PM
Friday 2PM – 11PM
Saturday 12PM – 11PM
Sunday 12PM – 8PM
Here are some pictures I took the first time I went to start this blog post:
I'm not sure what brewery I'm using for "Y". I vaguely remember thinking that there used to be a brewery whose name started with Y, but I was not able to find anything with a quick google search.
There are breweries that start with "Z". I just have to figure something out for "Y".
Anyway ... you can always see the latest on this "project" on Sheppy's Blog: A to Z. I hope it isn't another year and a half before I do my next brewery.
