Today it was announced that Fort Collins-based New Belgium Brewing has reached an agreement with Denver’s planned The Source Hotel to have a new 10-barrel pilot brewery at the hotel.
The Source Hotel is slated to take shape adjacent to The Source marketplace at the 3300 block of Brighton Boulevard in Denver’s River North (RiNo) neighborhood.
The beer will be brewed on the ground floor and an 8th floor lounge titled “The Woods” will feature barrel aging, and will provide visitors with a location to take in beer and food as well.
“After 25 years in Ft. Collins, we’re really excited to get more deeply involved in Colorado’s cultural and political capital,” said Jenn Vervier, director of strategy and sustainability at New Belgium. “We’ve long considered creating a Denver location to bring the New Belgium experience to more of our Colorado fans and to the millions of travelers who visit Denver. RiNo is already a vivid scene with a rich art and craft beer culture, and will soon have great access for bikers and walkers. This small batch brewery will allow us to collaborate with The Woods’ chef and mixologists to create innovative beers, drinks, and pairings you can’t get anywhere else. The Source Hotel and the Zeppelin Development team are the perfect fit.”
The planned hotel is designed by Dynia Architects and is being developed by Zeppelin Development. Zeppelin and Dynia collaborated on The Source marketplace and the projects at RiNo’s nearby TAXI campus.
Construction on The Source Hotel is expected to begin this summer.
