One local brewery has been quietly racking up some impressive wins of late: Brew Brothers, led by Head Brewer Ryan Torres for the last six years.

Most recently, Brew Brothers was announced as the winner of the 2021 Alpha King Challenge. This award, which dates back to 1999, was founded by Yakima Chief Hops and 3 Floyds Brewing. The contest crowns “the most well-balanced and drinkable beer with 60 IBU’s or more – the top IPAs and DIPAs on the market.” All entries are from commercial brewers, with a limit of one entry per brewery, and a maximum of 150 total entries. The event is held in Denver during Great American Beer Festival (GABF) week, and is judged by brewers, industry experts, and veteran beer writers. Past winners include Bell’s Two Hearted and Russian River’s Pliny the Elder.

Torres and Brew Brothers also pulled in a Bronze Medal at the 2021 GABF in the English Mild or Bitter category with Toasty, an English Style Dark Mild at only 3% ABV. And in the 2021 Ohio Craft Brewers Cup competition, he snagged a Silver Medal in the Sour/Wild with Fruit category with Jerry, a barrel aged sweet/tart wheat beer with cherries .

The Brew Brothers is located at 6000 S. High St at the El Dorado Casino. Hours are Sunday-Thursday 11-9, and Friday-Saturday 11-11.
