E is for Empourium Brewing Company

So .... I hinted in D is for De Steeg Brewing that I would follow up with "E" fairly quickly.

As a reminder, 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.

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

De Steeg Brewing was our first stop.

It just so happens that there is an "E" brewery within a short walking distance of De Steeg.

If you are familiar with this area around Tennyson, you probably were able to figure this out, but my "E" brewery is ....

Foreshadowing ... There is another brewery in this area that starts with the letter F. Another starts with the letter G.

So ... we walked into Empourium Brewing Company. Since they don't serve food, we asked about suggestions for lunch.

They had a ton of suggestions documented on the back of their beer menu. Awesome.

We ended up walking a block or two to a burger joint. Yum.

When we came back, we ordered a couple of flights. (surprise surprise)

We had:
  • A Plethora of Pinatas ... a light and refreshing Mexican Lager. It was great.
  • Power Player ... a light and refreshing German Pilsner. Fantastic.
  • Back, Back to the F'N Basics ... "an American table beer". I've never heard of this style before, but it was a well made light beer.
  • Getting Schwifty ... A tasty saison.
  • Wolf Moon ... a wonderful American Stout.My favorite of the Empourium beers.
  • Dope ... an American IPA. Good stuff.
  • Peace, Love & Pale Ale ... a yummy APA.
  • Conditions of my Parole ... a coffee blonde ale. The beans came through as green peppery, which I think is a pleasant flavor.

I enjoyed all the beers. Not sure I'd drink much of the "Conditions of my Parole", but it was fun tasting a "coffee blonde".

The Empourium tasting room and brew house is very new and shiny looking. It is a fantastic location and looks like a fun place to hang out on Friday or Saturday nights.

I enjoyed my time there. Check it out when you get a chance.

They are located right on the corner of Tennyson and 42nd at

4385 W. 42nd Avenue
Denver, CO 80212

Their hours are

Mon-Thurs 2pm-9pm
Fri-Sat 12pm-10pm
Sun 11am-8pm

Since there is an "F" brewery within walking distance ... there is a strong possibility that you'll see my "F" post fairly soon.

Again, if you are familiar with the area, you can probably figure out which brewery I'm talking about.

Keep an eye on Sheppy's Blog: D E F and/or Sheppy's Blog: A to Z.

Go Bears!
