We are Brewery Rickoli, the premiere brewery in Wheat Ridge, Colorado, serving freshly brewed craft beer and offering a relaxed and friendly space to gather. We are located by the Southwest corner of 44th Ave. and Wadsworth Blvd. Our take on beer is simple: use great ingredients and brew for flavor! Rickoli's respects the liquid in the glass and wants to help elevate beer to a refined drinking experience. That's why we use the finest ingredients and brew in a leisurely manner. The beer tells us when it's ready. We refuse to be a slave to production deadlines. Wheat Ridge Colorado is a laid back community just west of Denver with easy access from I-70. Wheat Ridge was one of the few remaining enclaves along the Front Range without a craft brewery; but we changed all of that in November 2012! We are dedicated to providing our local neighborhood with a place to sit back with good friends and have a pint close to home.
Rickoli's Rye Stout
This is a hearty Rye Stout that satisfies the soul! Roast barley flavors are combined with the spice of rye and the full bodied sweetness of crystal malt to compliment the Americanhop flavor this beer showcases.
Mango Hop Session
Where mild meets wild! Mild on alcohol, but still drinks like our IPA. A more complex profile with the Mango puree that we add to just support the amazing tropical leaning hop billthis beer already has!
This is a traditional Scotch Ale. We use Golden Promise Malt with just a touch of roasted barley, boiled extensively to concentrate the caramel flavors with the stingiest amount ofEnglish hops.
Oats McGoats is our collaboration brew with Samuel Adams! It's our Rye Stout with the addition of oat malt and Golden Naked Oats, which lends a smokey earthy quality to this brew.We also used a new hop (#7270) that still awaits naming. This hop lends a subtle wintergreen aroma over the roasty malt bill. Look for it in bars around Denver in June! Pretty Tasty!
Old Rickoli Barleywin
Barleywine is, simply put, beer that is brewed to the strength of wine. Ours is a complex brew of many types or malt and hpos that can vary from year to year. Made annually and held in our cellar.For our 2017 vintage, we aged it for 7 weeks in Bourbon barrels to get a very subtle barrel flavor. It retains the slightly fruity character of the English yeast while balancing perfectly with the influences of the barrel. We occasionally put this on tap as it ages.
Vanilla in "yo Rye"
Rickoli's Rye Stout spiked with pure Vanilla . The heartiness of this very approachable stout is balanced and softened with pure Mexican vanilla. Pairs amazingly with Vanilla IceCream!
Das Hefeweizen auf SweetRidge
Try the Hefe! It has a pleasant banana -clove flavor and a refreshingly light body. a great late summer beer! Prost!
Aldo's Red is a very flavorful derivation of a German beer style called "Altbier", a little fuller bodied than the German version, this beer has an Irish Red's depth of flavor,but finishes cleaner. Rickoli uses Munich, Vienna and Pilsner malts with a little Nugget hop to give it character.
A rare collaboration with Jagged Mountain Craft Brewery's Adam Glaser and Rickoli that incorporates favorite ingredients of both brewers!
Bourbon Peach Strong Ale (ST. RICKOLIS)
Life's Hoppin' In Sweet Ridge!
A collaboration brew with our friends over at Colorado Plus Brewpub! A vaery tropical hop nose against a wheat softened malt bill that includes malted and raw wheat.East coast schmeast coast....
This Imperial Black IPA is defined by an extremely hoppy nose,intense hop flavor and is supported by just a kiss of dark malt, giving a subtle roast flavor in the profile.We sometimes do a Chili version of this beer that is worth asking your server if it is on tap.
Everyone has an IPA and we have a great one! It has Pale malt and a touch of Munich malt that blend to provide a clean sturdy base for the intest hop flavor and aroma.

A unique twist on a Rye beer. Riiiiight? is a light vienna malt beer with flaked rye and lightly spiced with caraway seed.
This is the double version of our Totally Eye-P.A. It reeks of pungent hops and alcohol, and has a wonderful creamy mouthfeel that lays the lupilin goodness across your senses.
We love this beer! It's a mellow strong golden ale with a Dutch yeast strain that gives more emphasis to the fruity esters without seeming too serious. German hops balance it nicely.It tastes good enough to make you quit your bitching.
The Authoritah! Is our Colorado style Red Ale.
M.E.H. Cream Ale
Most Excellent Homebrew! This cream ale is a very light and refreshing ale that is similar to "Genesee Cream Ale". A malty leaning beer with just a kiss of hops.
a nice and pleasantly malty lager that says " Hey Bud, Let's Party!
This is a true double version of our M.E.H.! We brew the M.E.H.! to double-strength in our kettle and cut it with water to achieve it's light body and flavor. The Enormous Richard is bigger and uncut.Let it fill your mouth with creamly body and loads of flavor!

This is the first beer from our sour barrel that Rickoli is cultivating.
