If you're familiar with the English alphabet, you realize that next up is "I".
In previous rounds ... "I" has an interesting history to the posts.
The first time through the list, we did I is for IronWorks Brewery and Pub. At the time, it was the only "I" brewery I could find in the Denver area.
By the time we got to round 2, Iron Works had closed, but another "I" brewery had popped up, and we did I is for [The] Intrepid Sojourner Beer Project.
When we got to round 3, Intrepid Sojourner had closed and we headed down to Castle Rock for I is for Iron Mule Brewery.
Thankfully, Iron Mule hasn't closed, but we don't have any more local "I" breweries.
And so we had to take some artistic license for this blog post.
As you know if you've been reading along, we attended the 2022 GABF recently. There were not any Colorado "I" breweries attending, but there were a few "I" breweries from elsewhere across the country.
I is for:
- Immersion Brewing (Bend, OR)
- Immigrant Son Brewery (Lakewood, OH)
- Independence Brewing (Austin, TX)
- Independent Brewing Company (Bel Air, MD)
- Insight Brewing Company (Minneapolis, MN)
- Ivanhoe Park Brewing Company (Orlando, FL)
I had one sample at each of these brewery booths during GABF.
My favorite was probably Half-toberfest Vienna Lager at Ivanhoe Park. My least favorite was Horske Pivo from Immersion Brewing.
I'm not sure what the Beer Model had and/or if she liked what she had at these breweries.
According to the Colorado Brewery Map & List, there are a couple local Denver-area options for "J" so we won't have to take artistic license next post in the A to Z series.
