Why black shirts?
"IT'S MY SYMBOL OF REBELLION" - JOHNNY CASH
Society tries to steer you down a very defined path of norms. Some might say this is the road most traveled, made of bricks that have been compacted with the footsteps of mindless cooperation. Go against the grain, find your own path, and when you need inspiration always look to the ones in black. They are the rule breakers, the non-conformists, and the counter culture. Black Shirt isn't just our name - it's our philosophy against convention and homogenization. It's who we are, who we call our friends and what we strive to be - the ones that challenge the "norms" of the craft beer industry.
Want to learn more about our history? Black Shirt Brewing Co. is featured in "Crafting A Nation," a documentary that focuses on the state of the local and national craft beer scene. The film highlights the struggles and successes inherent to running a brewery, with interviews from big-time industry players as well as up-and-coming breweries, all coming together to drive an industry that cares about shaping and supporting the communities in which they serve. Black Shirt Brewing Co. is honored to have been selected as the centerpiece for this film, and we welcomed the opportunity to provide a behind-the-scenes look at our brewery's transformation from the ground up. Available on Netflix, iTunes store and Amazon Video, "Crafting A Nation" is a must-see for anyone interested in the art of craft beer and its ability to amaze, delight and transcend what's on tap.
Located in the heart of the RiNo Art District neighborhood of Denver, Colorado, we at Black Shirt Brewing Co. strive to offer an experience that combines the perfect balance between music and delicious craft beer. We were voted "Best Brewery Taproom - Patio" by Westword Magazine along with many other accolades. Come in and see what all the hype is about.
