What better time to open a brewery in Denver, CO than two days before the Great American Beer Festival right? Well that’s exactly what Scott Witsoe thinks as he is opening the doors of his new nanobrewery, Wit’s End Brewing, on September 26, 2011. Scott and wife Heather relocated to Denver from Seattle in 2000. Scott, upon attending GABF for the first time decided that Denver was home and it was time to live the dream.
Scott wants to start out small, hence the nanobrewery. According to Wit’s End, it’s not about the size of the equipment, it’s how you use it right?! The brew one barrel batches at a time and these will be hand distributed to a small number of stores, bars, and restuarants in the area.
Added GABF bonus? They will be a stop on the Denver Brews Cruise that will run Monday – Friday 12noon until 5pm during the festival.
There will be 4 beers in their initial line up for the first week or so of business: Jean-Claude Van Blond, Super FL i.p.a., Green Man Ale, and Kitchen Sink Porter.
