Ratio Beerworks has taken the circuitous route to its home in Denver, Colorado. Born out of a touring punk band in the 90's, its founders learned to brew in Germany, and refined their skills throughout Colorado's excellent brewery scene. After winding their way through a few different careers, they have finally landed here—home at their 20-barrel microbrewery. Offering art and music along with their most excellent beer, Ratio Beerworks strives to stimulate all of your senses during your visit. Integrated into the community through donations, beer festivals, local distribution, supporting local bands, and hosting events of various sizes, these wanderers-turned-brewers have quickly become community favorites.
If you find yourself wanting to represent the brewery, they have a variety of options ranging from punk- inspired pins to a number of shirts to choose from; you can show your love by patronizing local stores and restaurants that proudly carry their brews. At the brewery itself, you can enjoy their music, art, and drinks seven days a week, from early until late. Whether you're enjoying one of their five stellar brews on their colorful patio or inside at their clean and modern bar, Ratio Beerworks works hard to make sure you enjoy yourself.
Dear You is not a typical saison. The french yeast provides a drier and earthier flavor than sweeter and fruitier Belgian styles. Acidulated malt gives the beer a tartness while the white wheat provides a hazy and pale appearance. At our microbrewery Denver, we use American Citra hops for both brewing and dry hopping to provide an aroma similar to a pale or india pale ale.
India Pale Ale
Our brewers have California roots so it was a no brainer to create a West Coast style IPA. We dry hop Antidote with massive amounts of Centennial and Mandarina Bavaria hops to produce a dry and bitter initial taste, and finishes with a clean, crispy malt backbone, making it one of the best microbrews in Denver.
Chocolate Rye Scotch Ale
Our dark scotch ale is a smooth drinker that carries chocolate and a subtle smokiness. Esters of raisin and dark fruit are alive throughout while ending with a mild sweetness. Complex, yet approachable, Hold Steady is our most robust flagship offering at our Denver microbrewery.
Extra Pale Ale
Repeater is right in between a pale and an india pale ale. As a micro brewery Denver, we use the slightly roastier Munich II malt which is found in many German beers, including Oktoberfests, to balance the hop additions and make for a more appealing option if you're not into bitter IPAs or are looking for a bit more than a pale ale.
American Standard Ale
Domestica is inspired by the roots of American brewing and is a great introduction to craft beer. The crispness of the malt bill, low bitterness from the European style hops, and a slightly higher carbonation draws similarities to American Light Lagers.
