Their anticipated taproom will carry eight taps of delicious Zephyr Brewing Company beers, enough to satisfy even the thirstiest craft beer lover. Their unique beers will indulge every palette. Their regular tap will carry a Scottish Ale, a Denver Milk Stout, a Belgian Style Wheat and an IPA. The additional four taps will be for specialty and rotating taps that will feature Chili Beers, Fruit Beers and Imperial Styles.

Zephyr Brewing Company has raised the bar as far as crowdfunding rewards go as well. With a contribution of $20, they are offering a Zephyr pint glass, a sticker, a magnet, and a free pint. For $300, a campaign contributor will enjoy all of that plus a limited edition t-shirt and a free pint of beer everyday for an entire year. Larger contributors have the option to have their very own beer on tap in Denver, as the buyer and a friend can join Zephyr Brewing Company on a brew day to participate in a 7 barrel brew!

When Zephyr Brewing Company opens their doors, they will be sharing the neighborhood with Epic Brewing Company, River North Brewery, and Our Mutual Friend Malt & Brew. RiNo is rapidly becoming the hub for Denver Breweries providing craft beer lovers with so much variety.
