Asher Brewing claims to be Colorado’s first all organic brewery, but that’s not the only reason to drink their beer. Those I’ve tried are excellent, and their tap room is probably the most comfortable in Gunbarrel, as you can see in the photo just below. That’s what you can do if you have cheap industrial-park space, instead of expensive retail space.
The main room has a small bar and a few high-top tables. There’s also a play room with corn hole, a few other games, and plenty of room for parties. There are snacks for sale, and apparently occasional food trucks, although I didn’t see the schedule, but you can call to get it.
You’ll sometimes find Asher in bars and restaurants, but they’re not yet bottling or canning. Here are the beers, with appropriately organic names:
I had the stout, my favorite beer, and is was top notch, although maybe not quite as good as Vindication’s Freedom Stout. My daughter had the Sooper Trooper, which she liked a lot. I tasted it, but sours aren’t for me. (It’s strong; $7 gets you just 10 oz.) I once had an Asher in a restaurant, but don’t remember which one. It was good, though.
Asher is in the Twin Lakes Tech Park, just south of giant Avery:
If you live in Twin Lakes, you can easily walk there, which gives you a choice of Avery or Asher. If the noise and crowds of Avery aren’t what you’re in the mood for, Asher is the complete opposite.
