About Black Shirt Brewing Co

Black Shirt Brewing Co is a progressive, artisanal brewery located in the RiNo Art District in Denver, CO. The brewery was founded by brothers Chad and Branden Miller and Chad's wife Carissa. Our focus is on creating unique, assertive, vibrant, complex, and ultimately perfectly-balanced beer. We do everything by hand, in small batches. No gimmicks. No bull shit.

Genuine. Passionate. Soulful. Authentic. Beer.

Happy Halloween!

We are gearing up for Halloween here at BLACK SHIRT BREWING CO by cutting some pumpkins and prepping our costumes. The weather here in Centennial has been crazy lately – lows in the upper 20s and highs in the 40s - old man Winter is just around the corner. In fact, last week saw the opening of both Loveland and Arapahoe Basin Ski Areas, better get the boards in for a tune and wax.

Chad and Carissa also arrived back in CO after spending some much needed and well-deserved time in CA. They brought back some fantastic beers and even better stories from breweries all over Southern and Central CA. Carissa even caught a shark on a crazy, last-minute, grab your shit lets go deep-sea fishing trip! Somehow, after the whirlwind vacation, they came back rested, inspired, and really motivated (aside from Carissa’s head cold).

First things first, our Architect is missing and assumed dead. We haven’t filed a report yet, but our guess is he got caught on the wrong side of a mob dealing. Additionally, we acquired some new equipment that made our scale too large for the building we have spent three months trying to get into (still a ridiculously small-scale, in case you were scared that we were no longer artisanal in size). We have taken it as a sign that we were never supposed to be in that space, and have decided to keep looking at other options. Again, BLACK SHIRT BREWING CO is without a home. We aren’t super happy to be starting again from what seems like scratch, but we must keep our heads high and persevere. The right space will find us and we are comforted in knowing that.

Happy Halloween from the entire crew at BLACK SHIRT BREWING CO, we hope it is safe and fun! Stay warm! Drink good beer!
