Merchant Monday’s: Platt Park Brewing Company
Happy Merchant Monday! Today we’re featuring Platt Park Brewing Company, located at 1875 S Pearl St, Denver, CO 80210. Platt Park Brewing Company is a family-owned craft brewery, accompanied with a taproom serving delicious food and amazing atmosphere.
Platt Park Brewing was created by Colby Rankin (pictured on the left), his dad Randy Rankin, and Brian Ward. After creating and experimenting with many home brew recipes, in 2013 they decided to turn it into a full scale business. The team found their home within an Antique Cash Register store that was waiting to be given a new life, and the rest was history.
After the first year of business, they boldly took their beer recipes to the Great American Beer Festival. The team ended up taking home a Silver Medal in the Vienna-Style Lager category for their famous Gump’s Vienna Lager! This was a huge accomplishment for such a new brewery.
Since then, Platt Park Brewing Company has become a staple within the Colorado beer scene and community. Creating over 300 beers throughout the years, Platt Park Brewing now supplies around 250 different bars and restaurants throughout the state. Not only do they supply restaurants and bars, they have also collaborated with many local businesses on beer recipes. Platt Park Brewing has worked with restaurants like Kaos Pizzeria and even Sweet Cow Ice Cream to create unique recipes and flavor profiles!
From sours to lagers to porters and more, the list of beers keeps on going. While the brewery has produced hundreds of beers over the years, there are definitely some fan favorites. In addition to the famous Gump’s Lager, the Phaded Pale Ale, and Watermelon Sour are both a must try the next time you are in the neighborhood.
While you may see their beers at local restaurants, to have the best possible tasting experience you need stop by the @plattpark tasting room on South Pearl St. 🍻 If you’d like to learn more about Platt Park Brewing Company or view their menu and hours visit https://plattparkbrewing.com
