Once again Denver shows we are one of the greatest cities for microbreweries in the world. After our annual Great American Beer Festival, 35 of the prestigious awards went to Colorado beer companies.

.

Particularly the Highlands can take great pride in their own Strange Brewing Company. They brought home 4 metals, including a bronze in the Barleywine category for their aged Dr. Strangelove.  To enjoy this hop-heavy drink, you can check out a tasting at their 13th & Zuni location. StrangeBrewing.com

.

New to the Highlands neighborhood is the Crooked Stave, who won silver for their bourbon-barrel aged Quadruple Sour Ale called Sentience. Their 46th & Pecos site is a cellar, not the actual brewery, as their barrels are stored there to age.  What stands them out among Denver’s microbreweries is their unusual choice in yeast, which creates the most unique, tasty flavors. They are definitely worthy of a visit: CrookedStave.com.

.

So during this holiday season, if you’re looking to provide a special gift to your Highlands neighbors, go for something award-winning!
