Our Mutual Friend Malt & Brew plans 1st Anniversary Weekend

Our Mutual Friend Malt & BrewWith so many breweries opening these days, so too are breweries celebrating anniversaries. One Denver-based brewery - Our Mutual Friend Malt & Brew in Denver, Colorado is celebrating their 1st anniversary next weekend and are planning to throw a two-day party in honor of the occasion. Check out their Press Release and see what's being planned for the anniversary.

[PRESS RELEASE] Denver, CO. -- November 22, 2013 -- Our Mutual Friend Malt & Brew is excited to announce the celebration of their First Anniversary on December 6th & 7th, 2013 at the taproom located at 2810 Larimer st. in the RiNo neighborhood of Denver, CO.

The last year at OMF has seen a leap in production capacity from their hand built one barrel brew system to a four barrel commercial brewhouse and seven barrel fermenters. The taproom has served 6 year-round standards, 4 seasonals, 2 bottle releases (Winter Warmer & IPA2), and countless one off batches. Each release has helped refine and improve the processes and quality of the beer. Their crafting and use of 100% Colorado grown, house roasted specialty malts shine through the beer more than ever, and they are working with Colorado Malting Company in Alamosa, CO to build and install malting equipment that will further allow OMF to take more of the grain to glass process in house. They hope to install and implement this equipment in 2014.

To celebrate the first year, Our Mutual Friend will host two days of festivities at the brewery:
