Set at 2875 Blake Street, in a building that also houses the Rackhouse Pub and C Square Cidery, Bierstadt Lagerhaus finally opened its doors last week after many delays and much anticipation. The three businesses, not only share a building, but they serve each other's products.
The new German-inspired brewery is the brainchild craft brewers Ashleigh Carter and Bill Eye, both former brewers at Dry Dock Brewing Co. and Prost Brewing Co. As the name indicates, lager is the focus here, made in the German tradition in an all copper, 84-year-old brew house that the owners of the company found, took apart, and shipped to the Mile High City. The 35-barrel system came from a brewery near Nuremberg, a city in northern Bavaria.
The plan at Bierstadt Lagerhaus is to always offer a classic pilsner, a dunkel, and a helles, plus a seasonal beer and a collaboration brew. The inaugural one is an India Pale Lager crafted with Comrade Brewing.
