Blue Moon Brewing to Build Innovation Brewery in Denver

Blue Moon Brewing, part of MillerCoor’s craft division, Tenth & Blake, will be building a new brewery in Denver, Colorado. The site has a 2016 opening target date.

The new facility is located in Denver’s RiNo Art District, and will produce around 10,000 barrels (310,000 gallons) annually. This new facility will be an innovation and pilot brewery, complete with tasting room, and event space.

“We just locked-down a prime location in the heart of Denver’s rapidly growing RiNo Art District,” said Keith Villa, founder and head brewmaster at Blue Moon Brewing Company. “We founded Blue Moon on a belief that brewing is equal parts art and science. So it’s pretty cool that 20 years later we get to design a new brewery in an area where we’ll be surrounded by fellow artists.”

Blue Moon’s original Sandlot Brewery facility will remain operational, ever after the new site comes online.

Blue Moon’s Latest Creation: Cinnamon Horchata Ale

Blue Moon Cinnamon Horchata Ale

Blue Moon’s Grape Scott! Yet Another Rename?

Blue Moon Brewing Company’s Grape Scott! is joining the brewery’s Graffitti Series. (See label, it makes sense.)

However, it is important to note that it may indeed be a rename of a renamed beer. Vintage Blonde Ale was renamed (last year?) to Golden Knot (in 750ml bottles) with the following description:

Golden Knot* is crafted with the juice of Chardonnay grapes and 100% wheat, intertwining a touch of tartness with apple and kiwi notes. This ale ties nicely with any food you might otherwise pair with white wine.

Grape Scott! carries the description: Wheat Ale with Chardonnay grapes. Blue Moon hasn’t clarified the different offerings for Beer Street Journal yet. In the meantime, your call.

Style: Wheat Ale (w/ Chardonnay Grapes)
Availability: 22oz Bottles

9% ABV
