A perk of being a nano brewery is the flexibility to experiment with new batches. Denver’s Wit’s End Brewery is classified as a nano brewery because it operates on a barrel system. Instead of towering barrels the beer is brewed in barrels a fraction of the size. Wit’s End is proof you don’t need the stealthiest equipment to make some of the best beer in the mile high.
Eager customers at Denver’s Wits End Brewery have a reason to come back with new recipes constantly being tapped. Made fresh to order this month- the Ambition Stout. The coffee brew gives equal attention to coffee as it does beer.
Owner and head brew master of Wits End Brewery, Scott Witsoe, says the beer fits his personality. “I am a coffee guy, from Seattle.” The brewery location also speaks Seattle, located in an industrial park warehouse just off I-25 and 6th Ave. “In Seattle there are lots of underground breweries that aren’t set up in the most obvious places. That seems to be part of the fun,” says Witsoe. Trying to save on costs Witsoe grabbed the space after loosing his job last year.
With less than a six-month turn around to greet Denver, Witsoe barley had time to keep beer in the forefront. One week away from his advertised opening date, Witsoe realized he was lacking three key ingredients- hops, yeast and grains. Overnighting hops and yeast and snapping up grains in state and from the friendly guys at Strange Brewing, he was staying on track, barely. The doors opened just in time to greet the craft beer loving crowds of GABF last fall. “I haven’t even had a second to regret the decision,” says Witsoe.
Witsoe’s passion is paying off with new customers eager to drink his beer and regulars spreading the word. On tap you will find four core beers along with an experimental brew. Witsoe sees the influx of breweries dotting Colorado maps as a reason to celebrate. “We are all unique. We have to hold true to what we do. I make what I find inspiring not because I need a certain product to match other breweries.”
