River-North-Logo-300x300There are new craft breweries opening up every week. There are existing craft breweries being bought up by the mega-breweries. Any way you look at it, craft beer is growing!

The 2015 Craft Beer Awards are announced. The list of medal winners is very long but you can look for the winning Oktoberfest, Dopplebock, IPA or any style at BestofCraftBeerAwards.com. We would like to give a shout out to the 2015 Brewery of the Year: River North Brewery in Denver.

River North started in 2012 by Matt & Jessica Hess with a nod to Belgian style ales. It has grown quickly and moved to a new location to double their production capacity. The brew we like by name alone is Funk The Man #1 which is a Brett Saison Aged In Cabernet Barrels. A couple of their award winning brews are White and Hoppenberg.

According to SeekaBrew.com, they have limited distribution which might be a result of capacity. We look forward to finding one of their award winning brews soon.
