P is for Peak to Peak Brewery

If you follow my "A to Z Denver Breweries Project", you know that I finished 2019 strong.

During the year, I worked my way from  1 is for 14er Brewing Company to O is for Ohm Brewing Company.

Most of those brewery visits were after July.

I got to B is for Briar Common Brewery + Eatery in early April, and didn't get to C is for Colorado Plus Brew Pub until August.

So, I hit 16 new breweries in alphabetical order over 11 months ... and 13 of those in 4 months.

My first time through, it took me 20 months to get to "O" (O is for Our Mutual Friend Brewing Company).

I don't think I'll keep up the ridiculous pace that I did after August last year, but I am planning on finishing my way through the alphabet by the end of 2020. If I do one a month, I should finish by November.

Then, I'll probably start over again, but we'll talk about that when we get there.

So, as you know ... after "O" comes "P". Big "P". Little "p". What begins with "P"?

Peak to Peak actually has two locations.

There is one at 16701 E. Iliff AVE, Aurora, CO 80013

The other is at 9735 E. Colfax Ave, Aurora , CO 80010

The one on Iliff is open earlier and has a food menu, so the SheppyBrew Beer Model and I decided to check that one out last Saturday.

We had two flights of 6

Flight 1

  • Cold to See Clear Keller-Pilsner
  • Derby Day Kentucky Common
  • Fitz Cream Ale
  • Nitro Vanilla Caramel Cream Ale
  • Jade Burst Saison
  • Flour Power Hoppy Wheat.

Flight 2

  • Aussie Boi Australian Pale Ale
  • Church Street NE IPA
  • EvenTide Porter
  • Frosty the Hop Man IPA
  • London Borough
  • Flour Power Hoppy Wheat (I didn't notice that my wife had already picked this one on Flight 1)

Afterwards, we got a couple of pints. I got the hoppy wheat, and I think my wife got the Australian Pale Ale.

In addition to beer, we got some appetizers (chips/ salsa and jalapeno poppers), and some lunch. We both had the philly cheese steak sandwich.

I really liked the food.

So ... we enjoyed the food and beer. The location is a bit far for me, but if you are in the Aurora, it is in a nice central location.

The tap room is nice and the bar tender / server was friendly.

Give it a visit.

Next up. "Q". Other than Q is for Queen Bee Brews, (which I've already used) I don't have a bunch of options of places that begin with the letter Q.

But, I promise I'll come up with something.

Stay tuned on Sheppy's Blog: A to Z to find out what we pick!

Go 49ers! (aka ... whoever is playing the Packers)
