Let’s do this!
After some unexpectedly lengthy delays, we are beyond excited to announce the start of renovations on our new RiNo taproom at 3400 Blake Street!
Featuring a seven barrel brewhouse for experimental and Blake-Street-only batches, the new location will become our flagship taproom, open seven days a week. It is mere blocks from the new light rail station at 38th and Blake, as well as the pedestrian bridge to Brighton Boulevard. We will be adding multiple glass garage doors along 34th street, a private lounge in the back, and a southwest-facing beergarden - perfect for year-round sunshine. With a steady rotation of the city’s best food trucks and endless small-batch beers, this spot will allow our brewers to truly flex their creative muscle. Expect traditional styles like black lagers and dry stouts alongside a steady stream of IPA’s (both crystal clear and hazy varieties), sours and barrel-aged specialties. And of course, we will pour classics and throwback River North brews as well – Hoppenberg, anyone???
Up North, the Washington Street taproom will remain open for those thirsty folks who prefer to stay north of I-70. That location will continue to fill the role of our production brewery for cans, bottles, and kegs distributed statewide. The 6021 Washington taproom will also host rare bottle and can releases and private events. So now you will have two spots to get taproom fresh beer right from the source!
We expect renovation on Blake Street to take roughly three months, putting us on track to open sometime between Halloween and Thanksgiving. When that happens, River North will be both the oldest and newest brewery in RiNo – a paradoxical badge we wear with honor.
When the time comes, expect a grand opening of epic proportions, the most massive bash in RNB history – The Homecoming Party.
In the meantime, come see us at 6021 Washington Street…Rum Barrel Mr. Sandman debuts this Saturday!
