Verboten Brewing hosted a 'kick the cans' party as a farewell to its original tap room location at 1550 Taurus in Loveland last Sunday. New digs are under construction at 127 East 5th Street in Downtown Loveland and will open to the public this winter.
The brewery gets its name from the "forbidden" ingredients that were rejected by the German Purity Law for beer, the Reinheitsgeb. For the last three years, owners Joe Akers and Josh Grenz have focused on crafting beers that use those forbidden ingredients — fruit, spices, oak, and more.
While the taproom is closed, fans of the beers can still get the goods in bars, liquor stores, and restaurants all over Northern Colorado, Boulder, and Denver. A list of those spots is available online.
