So I check in as someone who loves craft brew but can't stand the endless multiplicity of IPAs and such - a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale once in a while was a nice break, but hopped, hoppier, hoppiest and Listerine battling for half the market is about as interesting to my palate as a Justin Timberlake soundalike contest.

Good porters. Deep flavor, not too heavy. Yum.

And rauschbiers - those made with roasted/smoked malt that have a taste of good bourbon to them, from a hint to "Jack Daniel's by the swallow" - will make me come running. Unfortunately, the brief fad seems to have faded and the breweries seem to only want to make room for more, well, triple-hopped ales. Bleah. About all you can find are German ones, or other low-volume, low-sale brews... meaning they're anything but fresh when you find them.

Do any Denver area micros turn out a decent rauschbier? And have an IPA-free corner?

I’m not an IPA guy. Love craft beer though.

The great thing about Denver’s beer scene is you can find literally every style out there.

Prost is a brewery that does nothing but German beers. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen a rauch there at some point. Their doppelbock is to die for.

Lacavore Beer Works in Littleton has one called Smokey Joe.

Joyride in Edgewater did a Maple Bacon Rauchbier a little while back.

Denver Beer Company has one as well from time to time.


If you like bourbon in your beer, there are tons of big barrel aged beers around town. Lots of stouts see time in bourbon barrels.

Keep an eye on Cooper Kettle's rotating tap list. They're one of my favorites and they tend to dabble a lot in the darker, maltier beers in my experience.

Copper Kettle Brewing Company!

Sierra Nevada is still my all time favorite pale ale. I used to love the really hoppy beers but my beer pallet has changed. I am not familiar with rauschbiers. Something new to try.

not a Rauch bier list but some good stouts/darks.
Now that the weather is cooling off - seems that more dark, stouts are showing up..

Seedstock (Colfax) is on the German style of things with a good stout - no Rauch bier but the stout is tasty.
Crazy Mtn

way out in Arvada
Rickoli - has a good dark
Odyssey

the list could go on and on... good luck and report back if you find something tasty.
