Grist Brewing CompanyThere's no end in sight to the string of brewery openings set for Colorado in 2013 and Grist Brewing Company is the latest to announce their intentions to open in the Denver metro area. Highlands Ranch will be the location for another brewery. Check out the press release from Grist Brewing issued earlier this month.

Grist Brewing Company to Open Fall 2013, Serving Southwest Denver

[PRESS RELEASE] Highlands Ranch, Colorado – June 7th, 2013 – Grist Brewing Company is set to open their doors in the fall of 2013. Located just south of C470 and Sante Fe Boulevard in a 6500+ square foot facility, Grist is uniquely situated to serve customers in Highlands Ranch, Littleton, and the surrounding metropolitan Denver Area.

While most new breweries open looking for a niche, Rob and the ownership team have a different vision. Grist is focused simply on making ales and lagers that are of the highest quality, approachable, and true to style. While experimentation within the guidelines will be embraced and trends will be explored, the primary focus at Grist will be to make consistently great beers to be enjoyed year round. Initial offerings will include Hefeweizen, Kolsch, American IPA, Brown, and Bock.

At the center of the operation is Rob Kevwitch. With a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry, Rob understands the fundamental role science plays in making a great beer. As an award winning home brewer with over a decade of experience, Rob has demonstrated the ability to put those principles into practice. That dedication to his passions has also played a role in overcoming many of the obstacles facing a startup brewery. Despite these challenges, Rob maintains an attitude that is reflective of Grist as a whole… “Nothing so far has been easy, and if it was easy, it wouldn't have been this much fun”.

While striving to make exceptional beer is our passion, we are equally committed to making a positive impact in our community. Plans have begun for involvement in local sports leagues and highway cleanup programs. Aggressively training our staff to be conscious of underage drinking and overconsumption is an equally high priority. Grist has also made a significant investment in our economy by purchasing a new, American made 20 barrel brewhouse from the W.M. Sprinkman Corporation in Wisconsin. Installation will be complete by mid-August of this year.

As milestones are reached, more announcements will be made. In the meantime, we can be followed on Facebook at Grist Brewing Company.
