Mile high

PALE ALEMile high

Our intense, sticky pale ale is a hop head’s dream. Muscular but balanced, it delivers a lush hop aroma thanks to a post-boil addition of whole-leaf hops in our Hopinator hopback. These verdant gifts meld with more hop flavors and bite paired with deep pale-malt goodness. Revered by our fans of extra strong and extra hoppy beers.

available: year round on draft and in cans



This small batch gem is a divinely drinkable Imperial red ale. It’s crafted with mountains of malts and specialty grains, and an avalanche of Whole-Flower Amarillo dry hops. Colorojo features a glorious “rojo” color, a heady aroma, sticky body, velvety flavors of caramel and malt, and verdant hops throughout.

Chile beerPatty’s

A longtime favorite among fans of outside-the-lines beer, this unique golden ale is aged with Anaheim, serrano and ancho peppers. The result is a head-turning beer with deep pepper flavors and aromas but no heat. A GABF medalist named years ago in honor of Westword founder Patricia Calhoun.

Rail Yard

Amber aleRail Yard

Our elegant, hybrid amber ale is made with German malts and hops and fermented with a British ale yeast. One of craft beer’s first style mashups, it has an aroma of sliced apples, wonderful flavors of caramel and a kiss of hops on its finale. Rail Yard has been our most popular beer for over 20 years.

Barrel Aged Quad

Barrel Aged Quad

This Belgian style Quadruple was made with Belgian specialty malt and loads of dark Belgian candi sugar.  Post fermentation we put this bad boy to sleep for 4 months in super fresh Laws Whiskey House bourbon barrels.  The flavors of the malts, belgian trappist yeast and wood blend together to create a rich treat with the aroma of dry boozy wood and spices, flavors of rich dark caramel, candied plums and ripe cherries.  This beer was made possible by like minded folks who are passionate about their crafts. 

available: seasonal on draft and in 19.2 oz cans


Black LagerB3K

Our acclaimed German-style schwarzbier is a uniquely thirst-quenching version of dark beer. It’s unfiltered (for extra texture) and features gentle notes of coffee and dark bread and a hint of smoke. A two-time GABF medalist, it’s the perfect perception changer for folks who swear they don’t like dark beer.

Belgorado is a Belgian-style IPA made with barley grown in Colorado’s San Luis Valley and fresh hops handpicked at Misty Mountain Hops farm near Montrose, CO.

Artillery Ale

This smooth, dark, warming ale pays tribute to the avalanche warriors that keep Colorado’s snowy slopes safe for travel and play.  An oak aged imperial brown ale that is deceptive in booziness.  This beer will lull you in like a warm fire place with notes of vanilla and burnt caramel and a rich full mouthfeel.

Uber Lager

Our German-style lager combines the elegant hoppiness of a classic pilsner with super drinkability.  Made with Bohemian pilsner malts and both noble and New Zealand hops. Uber Lager gets a special dose of aroma hop character via a load of whole leaf Saphir hops in our Hopinator hopback. A super session beer for craft beer nuts and newcomers!

This Bavarian-style, unfiltered wheat beer features classic aromas of clove and banana over an immensely quaffable and bready blond beer. A GABF gold medal winner, it’s fermented with a German yeast (from the Hans Hopf brewery) brought back years ago by our founder, John Hickenlooper.

available: coming spring 2016

Milk stoutCowtown

A creamy, semi-sweet nitro stout, this dark wonder features flavors of chocolate, coffee and a pleasing sweetness thanks to an addition of lactose (AKA milk sugar). Crafted with seven specialty malts and low on alcohol, it’s the ultimate session beer for dark ale lovers. A great dessert beer, too.

available: year round on nitro

Saison De Seigle

Saison De Seigle

This French saison is brewed with lots and lots of rye; Malted rye, crystal rye, and flaked rye. It was allowed to free-rise during fermentation leading to a very dry saison. The Rye and yeast character lends a spiciness to the beer, with just a hint of Belgian flavors.

available: spring seasonal on draft and in cans

Pumpkin Ale

Pumpkin Ale

A longtime Wynkoop fall favorite, our revered “drunken pumpkin” ale is now on tap at Wynkoop. This English brown ale is loaded w/ pumpkin three ways: fresh roasted, pureed and flaked, then spiced to perfection. Equal parts beer and pumpkin pie, we think it tastes like hugs and warm sweaters.

available: fall seasonal on draft and in cans

Salted caramel Apple Ale

A malt based hard cider, with real caramel sundae topping and a touch of salt.  Not too sweet, the tart dry notes of the cider contrasts well with the undertones of the richness in the caramel. This custom recipe made exclusively for Elitch Gardens was an instant hit! It sold out in less than a week last year… don’t worry, we’re making more than last year!

available: seasonal on draft

Doug E Peche

Barrel aged sour peach brown ale.  This beer was barrel fermented with a blend of sour producing “bugs” and aged in those barrels for 17 months.  The end result is a beer that is dark with a round juicy body mid palate and a super tart finish.  Pucker up buttercup!

available: seasonal on draft

Orchard Wheat

Orchard Wheat

An unfiltered, American-style wheat beer, orchard wheat is made with premium malts and wheat and natural peach essence and juice. We custom make this beer for the Elitch amusement park in Denver. Designed for springtime quaffing, the Orchard Wheat is a refreshing yet complex beer with a creamy body, bready malt and wheat flavors, restrained hops, woodsy citrus notes, and ripe peach orchard aromas. It needs no citrus garnish on the glass.

available: summer seasonal on draft and in cans

Kurt’s Mile High Malt

Kurt’s Mile High Malt

A Vienna style lager brewed with lightly roasted Ethiopian ANYETSU coffee using a recipe handed down by Kurt Vonnegut’s grandfather, who was a brewer. The beer is a malty sweet and copper colored brew with low bitterness (20 ibu) that showcases balance and nuance of coffee flavor in a very clean and drinkable lager.

The recipe for this beer was given to Wynkoop founder John Hickenlooper by the late author. The first batch was brewed in 1996 and then again in 2007 as a tribute to Kurt’s passing. We are brewing it to celebrate our 25th year in business and by recreating some hidden gems in our trick bag, we are paying tribute to our brewing history.

available: coming in 2016

India pale ale (ipa)London Calling

One of our year-round hand-pumped beers, London Calling is a classic English pale ale that’s cask conditioned for a soft mouthfeel and gentle carbonation. We dry hop it with British hops. A blend of UK-malts and a Brit yeast add extra authenticity to this longtime Wynkoop favorite.
