A Message from Captain Brent
My first brewery tour was so memorable. I was 18 and I was not even allowed to sample the beers, but the atmosphere was great! At the beginning of the tour, the guide asked if anyone knew what a lager was. It was a large group and no one raised their hand. After a few moments my great uncle Roy raised his hand and the guide acknowledged him. “Yes sir, do you know what a lager is?” “Yes ma’am I do” he said, “it is a guy who cuts down trees!” The whole group burst out into laughter and the tone for the tour was set.
When I was asked to join the Brews Cruise family, I jumped at the opportunity! I left my career of 15 years in the boat business, traded in my propellers and diesels tanks for wheels and fermentation tanks, and followed the aromas of malt and hops! After spending time with Mark and Trish of Asheville Brews Cruise and working for beer at a couple of breweries, I truly know what it means to go Cruisin’ for a Brewsin’!
I invite you on board the Denver Brews Cruise to create lasting brewery tour memories…Lets go Cruisin’ for a Brewsin’…Mile High Style!

He was at Strange Craft Beer Company one evening enjoying a fine crafted beer and saw the Denver Brews Cruise tour group come in the brewery; heading straight back to the brewhouse. . This sparked his interest in the tour and started talking to some of the regulars at the bar. That night he emailed his resume’ and thus his Denver Brews Cruise adventure came to fruition.
