C is for Cerveceria Colorado

If you read this blog, you probably know that round 3 of our A to Z Denver Breweries Project is underway.

If you missed A to Z Denver Breweries Round 2, go ahead and take a few minutes to read up on it.

Then, just for the fun of it you can check out A is for Altitude Brewing & Supply and B is for Bierstadt Lagerhaus.

With colder weather coming on and the rising number of COVID cases in Colorado, I don't know how likely it is that we'll make a whole lot of progress in the next few months.

But, we do have a "C" brewery for you. Actually, we hit our "C" brewery before either A or B

On a nice sunny Halloween day, the Beer Model and I packed a lunch, got on our bikes, and headed to Downtown Denver to check it out.

Cerveceria Colorado is located at 1635 Platte St, Denver, CO 80202, right next to Denver Beer Company

I am pretty sure that the two breweries are actually owned by the same group, but for the purposes of this little project, I am counting them as two different breweries.

But regardless, the location is perfect for bike riders, being very close to the Platte River bike trail.

Cerveceria Colorado specializes in "Mexican" beers. From the website:

"We seek to honor the traditions, flavors and culture of Mexico by utilizing traditional Mexican ingredients, flavors, and processes to create innovative styles of beer."

Whenever the Beer Model or I see "Mexican Lager" on a brewery's menu, it is almost certain that one or both of us will get one.

So, you can imagine that it was a little difficult to pick our beers.

But, we figured it out. We even grabbed a six pack of ¡Venga! Mexican Lager to bring home with us.

The art work inside and out is really cool. 

If you decide you don't want to try the Mexican beers, you can order from the Denver Beer Company menu as well.

We enjoyed the beers. We enjoyed the lunch. We enjoyed the bike ride.

What a perfect Halloween activity.

Next up ... the letter "D". I'm not sure when we'll get to it. 

I was saddened to hear recently that one of the "D" breweries in the area closed recently. Rest in peace, "Dead Hippie Brewing Company". They just couldn't financially survive the latest rounds of COVID restrictions. 

So, it won't be Dead Hippie. 

Stay tuned on Sheppy's Blog: A to Z to see what comes next.
