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.

The space has been drawn, engineered (very basically), and more and more equipment is being ordered and received every day. We just placed an order through Premier Stainless for some beautiful, new 15bbl brites and fermenters, mill, pump, and heat exchanger. We are gearing up for construction which we have scaled back considerably, choosing to concentrate on the brewery and getting up and running; and figuring that we can always do the tap room buildout at a later date. For now, the best use of our limited money is to concentrate on what matters most - the beer. Everything else will fall into place down the road. And, the weather has finally climbed out of the frigid cold that we have been battling for the past several weeks - here's to warm thoughts! Happy Valentine's Weekend!
