Brewery #509: @oldcoloradobrewingco in Wellington. This may be the coolest location I've ever seen for a brewery - a 100 year old grain elevator. They have done an incredible job of showing off and enhancing the space with glass ceilings, grain shadow boxes, speaker boxes made to look like the walls, old license plates, etc. The history here - both from the building and the story behind the brewery - makes the who experience richer. Add to all of that one of the friendliest, most enthusiastic owners I have ever met makes this place pretty damn perfect. We had intended to pop in for a quick flight and ended up staying well past closing because of Brandon.
But what about the beer? It was good. The coffee blond was balanced and fun, their sour was complex and carried none of the sour sins, their BA beer had a great Brett funk, and their IRA presented both the malts and hops to great effect. This place is well worth the trip.
