Denver Beer Co. Opens Fourth Taproom Location in Lowry
Denver Beer Co. will hold a grand opening event this Saturday, Feb. 25, for the craft brewery’s fourth taproom located at 7070 E. Lowry Blvd within the Exchange at Boulevard One, a vibrant mixed-use community hub co-owned and developed by Confluent Development and Kelmore Development.
The new location includes a 4,200-square-foot taproom and brewhouse with a 7 bbl brewing system from DME, plus a 5,400-square-foot patio, featuring fire pits, patio heaters, misters, and outdoor game spaces. The taproom has the capacity to hold 125 guests in the interior space as well as an additional 360 guests on two outdoor patio areas. Denver Beer Co. has created 30 jobs to staff the location, including a brewer, bartending staff and food service staff.
Designed by Gensler and built by i2 Construction, the Lowry taproom was constructed with a focus on sustainability. The building is 100 percent solar powered, implements a CO2 capture and recycling program and utilizes a brewery-wide recycling program.
“As the developer of Denver Beer Company’s Lowry taproom, Confluent placed an emphasis on exemplifying the brewery’s commitment to environmental stewardship throughout the building,” says Nick Kitaeff, senior development director at Confluent Development: “Our team shares Denver Beer Co.’s mission of creating a welcoming and inviting space for employees, customers and the surrounding communities to enjoy. Denver Beer Co.’s fourth taproom features: solar panel arrays structured on the roof, which provide 100% solar power throughout the building, south and east facing garage doors that frame the taproom bringing in natural sunlight and fresh air, dedicated on-site bike parking and electrical vehicle charging stations, and overall, the structure’s features will help conserve and protect our natural resources.”
Denver Beer Co. Lowry has a dedicated brewing team and will offer specialty brews unique to the location as well as Denver Beer Co. flagships including Graham Cracker Porter, Princess Yum Yum Raspberry Kolsch, Juicy Freak Juicy IPA, Incredible Pedal IPA, hard seltzers and rotating seasonals. The new taproom’s opening lineup will include easy-drinking Lowry Lager, Lo-Fi Hazy IPA, a pale ale with coconut, lime and pineapple dubbed Tropic Thunder, Tripel Threat Belgian tripel, and Lavender Currants Belgian wheat. In addition, Denver Beer Co. Lowry will feature house made, small batch non-alcoholic beverage offerings and an all-day menu focused on elevated comfort foods with kid-friendly, gluten-free and vegetarian options. Patrons can also expect to see a full calendar of signature Denver Beer Co. events such as the Beer, Bacon & Coffee fest, pairings with local restaurants and food purveyors, beer dinners and more.
“We can’t wait to grab a beer and spend the afternoon tossing a frisbee with friends at the park,” shared Charlie Berger, co founder of Denver Beer Co. “This location is really special; we’ve felt such a warm welcome from our neighbors in Lowry and surrounding areas. We are looking forward to hosting fun events such as community block parties, outdoor movie nights, and even yoga in the park. We hope the beer garden will become a central gathering place for folks in the community.”
The locally-owned craft brewery will open the taps starting at 12 p.m. on Saturday and will celebrate with live music, giveaways, and specialty beer releases.
