We have the best clients around & our beer loving clients always know how to have a good time. They are scattered all over the country, from the east coast to the west coast and up to AK. Add these stops to your bucket list this summer! Trust us, you won’t regret it.

 They may be a little over 2,600 miles from our hometown of Denver but Alaskan Brewing Co. is worth a visit if you find yourself in Juneau this summer. Since 1986, Alaskan Brewing Co. has had a trifecta of a mission. They have strived to ‘produce internationally recognized quality craft beverages, showcase quality-oriented manufacturing in Alaska, and to have fun growing both individually & as a company’. This summer, get your hands on their seasonal Kolsch Ale. Although it began as part of their Rough Draft Series of experimental brews, it has since taken home medals at the GABF, the World Beer Cup & a few other international competitions. Their summer Kolsch pairs wells with crab or halibut (fresh & Alaskan, of course) and is a great beer to grab to go with your salad, if you’re that type of person.


Sit along the historic brownstone while you enjoy a casual but upscale menu & an award-winning line up of beers at City Steam Brewery in Hartford, Connecticut. The beers will blow you away but their unique, multi-level floor plan is sure to set the scene for a night you will always remember. Check out their beer garden, their game room (including pool!), their classic brewery bar that always features 12 beers, live entertainment (on the weekends) and of course, a 30-year standing tradition, live comedy from Brew Ha Ha Comedy Club. If you only have a snippet of time to visit, do so during their happy hour. During the week from 4-7pm, you can enjoy a variety of delicious foods & beverages all while taking in this one-of-a-kind environment. Have you scheduled your trip yet?  Make sure you align your calendar of events with theirs!

Ninkasi Brewing has a story that dates back to 2006 when 2 friends mustered up both the courage & the funds to create their first batch of beer, Total Domination IPA. In 200,7 they moved to its current location in Eugene, Oregon knowing it would be the perfect spot for their dream to ‘provide a place for people to come together over a pint’. Since their opening, they have grown to the 38th largest craft brewer in the U.S.A! Stopping in this summer? Be sure to check out their What Do You Know? Trivia nights on Tuesdays or stop in on a Thursday to be a part of Pints for a Cause. It seems like there is always something going on at Ninkasi!
