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.
BONZO! Pistachio & Lavender Rye Pale Ale is back while supplies last! On draft & in 4-pack 16oz. cans to go!
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-comers, all uniting 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 just north of downtown Denver, Black Shirt Brewing Co. strives to offer an experience that strikes a harmonious balance between music, crave-worthy pizza and delicious craft beer. We’ve received accolades for our taproom patio (front and back), and in late 2017, we were awarded “Best Brewery for Live Music.” Our urban Beer Garden features a hand-built pallet stage that brings in acts from Colorado and beyond. Come and see us - the hype is real.
We love hosting parties here at Black Shirt Brewing Co. Looking for a space for a corporate training, private event, fundraiser, wedding reception, or birthday party? No matter the occasion, we have several spaces available for rent, so please see our space rental guide and let’s get your event booked!
BEER RELEASE: TURBO JUICE
5.22.18 | TAPPING AT 11am
On Tuesday, May 22, we're releasing Turbo Juice, our new low ABV (5.25%), hazy blood orange IPA. Brewed in the style of a Vermont or New England IPA, this beer boasts mango, passionfruit, kiwi, and underripe strawberry coupled with undertones of field grass and a tinge of pine. On the palate, Turbo Juice is soft and rounded with a very restrained bitterness, an abundance of juicy heft, and a refreshing citrus peel finish. This zero IBU wonder is best paired with a warm afternoon, the shade of a tree, and a good sci-fi book; may we recommend the soon-to-drop Denver Moon by Warren Hammond and Joshua Viola? On until it's gone
