Conceived at a Bruns family dinner, the dream of starting a homebrewer-based brewery in their city of Denver, Colorado soon became a reality: Factotum Brewing Company was born. With a goal of providing guest brewers with a stage to display their passionately crafted homebrews, local amateur brewers also soon got the opportunity to realize their dreams—dreams of sharing their brews with the community.
Factotum Brewing Company offers their collection of signature brews to visitors every day of the week. With popular favorites such as the "Soldier's Reward" American Pilsner and their "Glorieta" Colorado- style IPA, fans continue to return and anxiously await new releases to experience. They also host a variety of events to attend throughout the week, such as their Trivia Tuesdays and Stein Night on Wednesdays, allowing visitors steeply discounted refills for bringing in their personal boots and steins they've collected in their travels. Guests are also provided the opportunity to rent out the taproom, to have it all to themselves for private events; the space easily accommodates dance floors, buffets, and most other needs for celebrations. Factotum Brewing Company takes pride in their ever-growing local community of fans, in addition to their comfortable, fun, and friendly environment.
Alternate Child French Saison
This hybrid beer features the smooth, rich, dark malts of a bière de garde with the spicy, fruity yeast of a saison.
Bourbon Barrel-Aged Coffee Bruin
This Oud Bruin ale was aged and soured in a second-use Bourbon barrel and then aged over coffee for a roasty, caffeinated kick
Brewed by members of Centennial 38, the Colorado Rapids fan club, this flowery and citrusy IPA is basically a West Coast IPA with half the IBUs. It's brewed entirely with Centennial hops (get it?)some of which were boiled for 38 minutes (get it?) and some of which were dry-hopped for 5,280 minutes (I hope you're getting this).
Soldier's Reward Classic American Pilsner
With a very small amount of melanoidin malt to give the beer a little more depth of character, expect a straight-forward beer with a creamy mouthfeel, a dry finish,and floral and spicy notes from the Cluster hops.
Each year the students in Regis University's Certificate in Applied Craft Brewing program hold an in-class homebrew competition and, each year, the class comes to Factotum to brew a 7BBL batch of the winning beer.This time it was a piney, citrusy American IPA.
Originally brewed for the working class of 19th Century London, the English porter is a precursor not just to other, darker porters but also to brown ales.Modern drinkers will find more similarities with contemporary brown ales than with contemporary porters but the slight and roast and caramel flavors of English Porter put it in a category all its own.
Glorieta Colorado-Style IPA
This cross between a West Coast IPA and a New England IPA is hazy but not milky. It's piney and resinous but also smooth and fruity (apricot, pear, mango, and more).It's got a slick mouthfeel but it isn't filling. It's the best of both coasts!
Imperial Kentucky Common
The Kentucky common style of beer was created in the Louisville, Kentucky area in the late 1800's for the working class population. Traditionally low in alcohol,we put a twist on this classic American amber ale and doubled the ABV.
