Aspen Brew Co sign

Messenger Aspen once again went behind the scenes at one of Aspen’s most iconic brands- Aspen Brewing Company! This winter they will be featuring a weekly tour of their beer-making facilities – . Every Tuesday and Thursday at 4 pm – brand manager Jack Boyd or company owner Duncan Clauss takes you through the process of all things that make up Aspen beer – from grain to bottle! A perfect tour for beer novices and experts alike – We had a blast being shown around the brewery and learning how everything is made. At ABC, they have the unique luxury of being able to experiment with making different styles of beer – and have succeeded in their bottled bombers that could get away with some aging. Located at the Aspen Business Center, the brewery itself requires a drive from the downtown tap room – but a great afternoon activity to learn more about Aspen products! $20 per guest-  Make sure to sign up here or email jack@aspenbrewingcompany.com! And no worries here – Beer samples included in the tour – learning is thirsty work!


The Independence Pass sign is what their famous Independence Pass IPA is named after.
