Colorado has once again proven its prowess in the craft beer scene at this year's Great American Beer Festival (GABF), maintaining its esteemed reputation for outstanding craft brewing and exceptional brews. Nestled just a short distance east from the renowned Longmont brew scene lies a hidden gem, Knuckle Puck Brewing, located in the heart of Mead, Colorado.

The dedicated team at Knuckle Puck Brewing returned home beaming with joy and pride as their signature "Blown Tire American Amber" clinched a prestigious GOLD medal at the festival. The GABF is a pinnacle event for brewers nationwide, and a gold medal is a testament to a beer's excellence in its category. It reflects the brewer's dedication, creativity, and ability to produce a brew that stands out amidst fierce competition.

Knuckle Puck Brewing, a small, local, family-owned brewery conveniently situated just off Interstate I-25 and 66 Hwy, has carved out a unique niche in the vibrant Colorado brewing scene. With a decor and name inspired by the beloved D2 Mighty Ducks movie, this is a brewery that invites patrons to sit back, relax, and indulge in some light-hearted nostalgia while enjoying a pint.

Offering a stellar lineup of 16 taps with beers true to style, ranging from light to dark and sour to hoppy, there's something for every palate. Owners and husband-and-wife duo, Tanner and Cassie, initially embarked on their brewing journey with a kombucha brewery, which paved the way to pursuing their dream of expanding and adding high-quality craft beer to their lineup.

Visitors can find their signature beer and kombucha available on tap and in to-go cans in-house. Moreover, with their traditionally non-alcoholic kombucha, patrons have the option to take on the power play by opting for a Hard Kombucha!

Looking for more variety? Knuckle Puck has you covered with a rotating local cider tap and a curated small wine selection, ensuring there is a special something for everyone, from rookies to veteran beverage enthusiasts.
