Fun Facts About Cerveceria Colorado

Cerveceria Colorado started brewing craft beer in 2018. Before we dive into which of their beers you can enjoy this May at Oakwell Beer Spa, let’s check out some fun brewery facts.

  • To honor Mexico’s culture, Cerveceria Colorado uses traditional Mexican ingredients, flavors, and processes to create innovative beers. These ingredients include cinnamon, chilies, nopal, chocolate, mole, lime, and agave. 
  • Cerveceria Colorado has worked with about 10 Mexican brewers over the years to create various unique recipes, including a Horchata Blonde and a Churro Stout.
  • They’re known for their unique pairing events like Beer & Tamales and Beer & Ice Cream.
  • The brewery’s biggest event, the Great Mexican Beer Fiesta, was held in 2018 and again in 2019. They released special beers brewed with Mexican brewers at the fiesta, which featured a mariachi band, food truck, luchador wrestling, and the world’s largest Michelada made with Venga Mexican Lager. Stay tuned for more fun events like this!
  • Aligning with Mexico’s diverse regions, Cerveceria Colorado believes beer is inclusive, collaborative, and celebratory.
  • Cerveceria brews beer for beer drinkers to share with others to build bridges in the community, not walls. This is where their iconic hashtag, #bridgesnotwalls, comes from.
  • The brewery donates a portion of its sales to Latino nonprofits in Denver. Some of these nonprofits include the Justice and Mercy Aid Legal Clinic, Museo de las Americas, the Latin American Educational Foundation, and the National Latino Peace Officer Association.
