The pilot brewery will mark New Belgium’s third location, joining its Fort Collins headquarters and second brewing facility in Asheville, North Carolina.
The Fort Collins-based craft brewery – the fourth-largest craft brewery in the country – will open a micro, 10-barrel pilot brewery at the forthcoming Source Hotel, 3350 Brighton Blvd., in Denver’s River North District (RiNo). The brewing will happen on the hotel’s ground floor, while 50 wine and whiskey barrels will be stacked with beer being aged on an eighth floor rooftop lounge dubbed “The Woods”. A 100-room hotel, The Source-located new brewery will focus on small plate and beer pairings in addition to a beer garden.
New Belgium strategy and sustainability director Jenn Vervier said: “After 25 years in Ft”.
New Belgium hopes this will help expand their sour beer offerings, which they’ve been producing since 1998. Having another small batch brewery to get a little insane on is a big plus and it’s our first foray into barrel-aging outside our home town.
Other New Belgium-branded concepts exist around Colorado, including the New Belgium Ranger Station in Snowmass Village and the Spoke and Hub concepts at Denver global Airport.
