D is for De Steeg Brewing

Well ... as I mentioned in C is for Colorado Plus Brew Pub, my A to Z Denver Breweries Project has been on a bit of a pause.

Saturday, my wife and I biked around the area of Mile High Stadium in Denver.

She tested out an eBike. There might be more about that later. Stay tuned on this blog.

But I digress.

After biking, we were close to a number of breweries.

I was interested in one in particular.

One that I had never been to.

One that starts with the letter "D".

Fun fact: De Steeg means "An Alley" in dutch. And even more fun, the entrance to De Steeg Brewing in an alley.

De Steeg is located behind 342 Tennyson St, Denver, CO 80212. 

The neighborhood is pretty cool with lots of food places and a few breweries within walking distance.

Foreshadowing ... one of the neighborhood breweries starts with the letter E. Another starts with the letter F. Another starts with the letter G. 

Keep an eye on Sheppy's Blog: A to Z to see if I visited any of those.

So ... the SheppyBrew Beer Model and I stopped in around lunch time after our 20 mile bike ride.

We shared a flight of beers

  • French Saison ... I love French Saisons like this one. A bit higher in alcohol than I would make, but it was delicious.
  • Patersbier Trappist-Style Single 6.5ABV. Not overly funky. Actually a very pleasant beer.
  • Eye Wit-ness Belgian Witbier 5.8% ABV ... Nice witbier. Beautiful aromas of coriander and orange peel while leaving a very smooth, clean finish.
  • Wink Wink Nudge Nudge Pale Ale - American 6% ABV. I really liked this beer. we decided to cut the coast off this pale ale by blending bravo, summer and galaxy hops and give it a nice balance without too much sweetness.
  • In the Garden Saison Farmhouse Ale - Saison 5.4% ABV ... Nice Belgium Saision. More in line with the ABV I generally like in Saisons. 
  • Hay-See New England IPA .. 6.8ABV ... Not as visually ugly as most NEIPA's. Very delicious.
  • Kolsch 44: Kölsch 5.4% ABV ... A nice Kosch. Light, crisp and refreshing with fruit notes. Perfect for relaxing in the Colorado summer sun.

I enjoyed all the beers I had. I would have had more, but we had to move on.

If you get a chance, I suggest you check out De Steeg Brewing in the alley.

I expect I'll tell you about an "E" brewery fairly soon. If you are familiar with the area, you can probably figure out which brewery I'm talking about.

Go Bears!
