Is Denver a Coors town?
Obviously, it’s home to Coors Field. And a City Council committee will consider this week extending Coors’ beer sponsorship at all Denver Arts and Venues locations.
The $950,000 contract spans Jan. 1, 2025, to Dec. 31, 2026. It calls for Coors “to invest $150,000 in (the) buildout of (a) branded bar in Red Rocks Amphitheatre’s Ship Rock Grille.” The contract requires Coors to “brew, can, and distribute Red Rocks co-branded specialty beer.”
Denver’s favorite beers
The new brew seems appropriate for Denver, which was built on a brand like Coors but now is known for its specialty craft beers. Denverites drink a variety of beers. Some of the most popular brands include:
- Denver Beer Company: This brewery has a wide selection of beers to choose from, including its flagship Denver Gold Amber Lager.
- Great Divide Brewing Company: A Denver institution, Great Divide is known for its award-winning beers, such as its Yeti Imperial Stout and Colette Belgian-Style Ale.
- Oskar Blues Brewery: This Colorado brewery is known for its innovative beers, such as Dale’s Pale Ale and Old Chub Scotch Ale.
- Coors Brewing Company: While Coors is not technically a local brewery, it used to be headquartered in Golden.
More than 150 breweries in Denver
In addition to these major brands, Denverites also enjoy a wide variety of beers from smaller, independent breweries. There are more than 150 breweries in the Denver metro area, so there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Overall, Coors is a popular beer in Denver, but it is not the only beer that Denverites enjoy. Denver is a beer town, and Denverites appreciate the wide variety of beers that are available in the city.
