Maybe you couldn’t get a ticket for the Great American Beer Festival, but that’s no reason not to enjoy great craft beers, and Loveland has some great breweries to choose from.
Fall is an awesome time to explore Loveland’s craft breweries, which are making great autumn beers that aren’t necessarily pumpkin flavored.
Get out and raise your glass at these places:
- Big Beaver Brewing Co. in west Loveland is pouring its Bust-A-Nut Brown Ale, which has a light, sweet malt flavor with a clean, nutty finish.
- Big Thompson Brewery’s Palisade Peach Habanero Blonde is a sweet/spicy brew.
- Buckhorn Brewer has a small brewery and tap room on the far west side of Loveland where they’re making gruits, an herb mixture that was used to make beer before the 11th century in Europe.
- Crow Hop Brewing Co.’s seasonal beers include a Sacrifice Rye, an orange-colored beer with earthy and grassy aromas.
- Grimm Brothers Brewhouse in east Loveland’s Oktoberfest beer is Farmer’s Daughter, a popular beer that sells out quickly.
- Loveland Aleworks’ Crowdsourced Fresh Hop Ale features hops donated by community members.
- Angry Banjo is Verboten Brewing’s suggestion for fall. The dark cream ale is perfect for a chilly day.
