14er Brewing Company, Denver, Colorado
Colorado is home to the most 14ers in the country. For the visitors, a 14er is a mountain peak with an elevation of at least 14,000 feet above sea level. For the sports-minded, that’s approximately 46.6 football fields high. Summiting 14ers is a big deal out west; it’s a lifestyle. Such is the brewery for which this lifestyle is aptly named. It’s not just thirst-quenching…it’s an experience you’ll want to conquer again and again.
14er Brewing Company operates a taproom in Denver’s RiNo Art District. Located just north of downtown Denver, RiNO is a former industrial mecca that is now the hub of four historic neighborhoods, concentrated with creative businesses and known as the place “Where Art is Made.”
The brewery is operated Thursday through Sunday and features the core 14er beers on tap and to-go, plus offers one-off beers that are only available in the tap room. It’s a full-construction brick buildout that is full of raw, untouched beauty so that your focus remains on the hoppy goodness that is the hallmark of all 14er beers.
Mr. Massive IPA is 6.5% ABV of tropical, juicy, massive hops highlighting tropical fruit, grapefruit, and juicy hops at first scent, with a taste of hoppy citrus, grapefruit, and guava rounded out with a definite – but not overwhelming – bitterness expected from all IPA.
The limited-release Key Lime Pie Ale is brewed with fresh Key Lime zest, lactose, cinnamon, and vanilla, and is a tasty beer reminiscent of the perfect dessert.
