P is for Peak View Brewing Company

Here we are already at "P" in round 4 our A to Z Denver Breweries series of posts.

It is difficult to believe that we only started round 4 this past June with A is for A Bit Twisted Brewpub.

As it turns out, "P" is a fairly popular letter to start brewery names with. If I'm counting correct, there are 24 "P" breweries listed on the Colorado Brewery List.

Of course we can filter out breweries that are not in the Denver area ...

.... and we've already hit P is for Pints PubP is for Peak to Peak Brewery, and P is for Prost Brewing Company (Highlands Ranch).

Even so, we had a few choices. 

When it came right down to it ... the SheppyBrew Beer Model made the choice. She decided we would go to ...

Peak View Brewing Company is located in Greenwood Village, CO at 9672 E Arapahoe Rd. 

Basically in the Denver Tech Center area.

Their websites says:
Whether enjoying the beautiful peaks here in Colorado or making the climb towards accomplishing your own goals, Peak View Brewing Company is here to keep people connected. Our love of the outdoors fosters a culture of exploration and in turn, inspires new beers that awaken the adventurer in you.

Like usual, we started with flights. The beer model got the first 4 beers on the menu.
  • Peak View Light Lager - American Light ... Craft light lager. Light beer-flavored beer. Crafted with love in order to achieve the perfect year-round beverage.
  • AJ’s Cantina Mexican Lager ... Peak View's take on this classic style Mexican Lager is sure to take you back to a beautiful beach! Crisp, light and refreshing!
  • Tropical Kolsch Tropical Kölsch ... This light yet bready beer is complemented with a subtle watermelon finish. The perfect beer to enjoy any day at any time!
  • Blood Orange Wheat 🥈 Fruited Wheat - 2021 GABF Silver Medal ... A true American delight! Backed with a classic American Wheat, this gem has a beautiful aroma and flavor of blood orange puree! Refreshing, crisp, delicious.

My flight followed up with the next 4 on the menu.
  • Rye of the Striped Cat - Lemon Rye Beer ... Lemon Rye - Light, refreshing, flaked rye and lemongrass.
  • New Mexico Pale Ale ... New Mexico Pale Ale - Super crushable, hop forward, apricot jam on the nose with grapefruit pallet.
  • Citrasonic Hazy IPA ... This sucker is packed full of more Citra and Mosaic hops than it knows what to do with. These hops will blast your taste buds with perfectly balanced floral and citrus notes. You deserve to indulge.
  • Bigfoot Believes In You IPA - Spicy Pineapple Hazy ... This Hazy IPA was brewed with no bittering hops making it super crushable. We then topped it off with the perfect amount of pineapple to give it a refreshing finish, and jalapeño for a little kick at the end.

Then ... we got a third flight (and there were still  quite a few beers we didn't try on the menu).
  • Irish Red Red Ale - Deliciously malty, smooth and creamy!
  • Shy Coyote Scottish Red Ale ... Aromas of single malt scotch, sweet caramel and roasted chocolate.
  • Dead Head Dunkelweizen ... A German cross between a Dunkel and a Hefeweizen. Our hand made Dunkelweizen is distinguished by its sweet maltiness, banana, clove and chocolate-like character.
  • Strawberry Milkshake Blonde ... Strawberry Milkshake Blonde Ale - Brewed with lactose flavored with vanilla and strawberry. Creamy mouth feel. Strawberry milkshake aroma.

All the beers were good to great. The one beer I didn't really care for was the Strawberry Milkshake Blonde, but the Beer Model loved it. I clearly was not their target audience for this beer.

The brewery also has a pretty good food (Pizza and Appetizer) menu, but we brought our own lunch and so didn't try any of the food.

A great brewery in a good location. I totally suggest you give it a try if you're in the area and hungry / thirsty. 

Next up ... we need visit a "Q" brewery. Unlike "P" ... there are not any "Q" breweries on the Colorado Brewery Map & List. We'll have to get creative for our "Q" brewery.

Keep an eye on  Sheppy's Blog: A to Z to see what we end up going to. 

And ... as always stay tuned on the regular SheppyBrew Channels to see what is happening with biking, brewing, barbequing, and other things: SheppyBrew's Facebook PageSheppy's Twitter FeedSheppyBrew's Instagram Page; and SheppyBrew's Website.Of course, don't forget to visit this blog often as well!
