The recent springtime weather motivated me to take a short brewery ride and warm up for summer riding and patios. This 5.5 mile loop goes from Seedstock Brewing Company to Prost Brewing to Strange Craft and finally back to Seedstock but you could start at any of them and make the loop, and realistically a different sequence would let you put the uphill to Seedstock somewhere other than the end. All of the breweries are easily accessed from the Platte River Trail and there are also a number of light rail stops in the area for those who prefer not to drive.
Seedstock, on Colfax at Lowell, features a German- and Czech-heavy taplist. Expect to see Pilsners, Dunkels, and Bohemian beers along with a sprinkling of other beer styles for variety (including an IPA). Despite the randomness of the surrounding neighborhood the brewery feels very chill and has a good-sized patio that is nicely sheltered from Colfax. Aside from the beers, I didn’t find anything exceptional about Seedstock – just a good, solid place to kick back with a brew.
