You might have noticed that we’re big fans of both local and beer. And when you combine the two, things just get magical.

Since we do our fair share of supporting NoCo’s awesome local beer scene, we thought we’d put our brewery-hopping to good use and document some of our favorite craft beers of the season. So, here they are: Bonfire’s top five beers of spring, in no particular order.


Zwei Pils (Bavarian-style Pilsner)

Why to drink it: The Zwei is an excellent, refreshing spring beer that goes down oh so easy.

Where to drink it: Zwei Brewing


Prost Dunkel (Munich Dunkel)

Why to drink it: The Prost is deep, rich, and tasty. Good for those windy, sh*tty spring days when you’re dreaming of going outside.

Where to drink it: otto PINT (tell them Bonfire sent you... we're buddies!)


Tartastic Raspberry Lime Ale

Why to drink it: This special release brew is our ideal combo of sweet and sour.

Where to drink it: New Belgium Brewery (or in your driveway)

The Smoeltrekker is second from the front

Smoeltrekker #39 (Sour)

Why to drink it: This dark mahogany brew (second from the front) is a funky, flavorful work of genius with a perfectly sour start and a super smooth finish. We may be a bit biased here, though... our design team hand-crafted the logo (see the case study here). :)

Where to drink it: Purpose Brewing & Cellars
