Chain Reaction Brewing Company, a new craft brewery in south Denver, will open its doors to the public on Saturday, June 21st. The grand opening party will continue on into the next day and will feature 16 taps. The beer options will include the following:
The Flagship Beers. The sudsy selection customers can expect to be on tap all day, every day.
• Pale Ale
• Orange Cream Ale
• Pink Peppercorn Saison
• Red Ale
• Belgian Rye Stout
Summer Seasonals. Beers brewed for the warmer months. A new series of seasonals will be unveiled as summer fades into autumn.
• Lemon IPA
• Rye IPA
• American Pale Wheat
• Blond Ale (to be released as soon as the Crème Brulee Imperial Milk Stout [see below] kicks)
Small Batch Taps. The brewery’s experimental, collaborative, and other off-the-wall offerings. These beers will have a high rate of turn-over and customers can expect a new line-up of small batches almost every time they visit. For the grand opening, however, the following six will be available.
• Black IPA with anise and orange peel
• Oatmeal Brown Ale
• English Mild
• Amber Ale
• Cilantro Serrano Lime Wheat
Special Grand Opening Beer. Crème Brulee Imperial Milk Stout is one of Chain Reaction’s most anticipated beers. Intended to be a winter seasonal, Crème Brulee will be available during the grand opening but only in two kegs. One the two kegs are kicked, it’s gone until winter and its tap will be replaced by Blonde Ale.
This one barrel nanobrewery, located near the intersection of Santa Fe and Mississippi, is the brainchild of homebrewing cousins Chad and Zack Christofferson. The cousins decided on a one barrel system because the small size allows them to experiment and try new beers without having to commit to a large batch.
Chain Reaction Brewing is located at 902 S. Lipan St., Denver, Colorado 80223.
