Cerebral Brewing was brought to life in 2015 by co-founders Sean Buchan and Dan McGuire in Denver’s Congress Park neighborhood along the city’s famed Colfax Avenue. Since the beginning, Cerebral has focused on quality, innovation, and evolution in all endeavors, from the beer we brew to the culture we create. We’re here to serve our community through our craft - raising funds and awareness for local causes we care about.
Cerebral Brewing fans have come to expect expertly crafted beers in a wide range of styles using a multitude of unique techniques. We embrace “a scientific approach to beer” by employing precise methodology to ensure quality and consistency. We’re proud to say we’ve had an in-house QA/QC lab since day one, and our commitment to quality has never wavered. Beyond the metrics and measurements, we lean on artistic inspiration and creativity to continuously develop new recipes. We are passionate about foeder fermented lagers, imaginative IPAs, and our extensive barrel-aging program.
In 2021, Cerebral Brewing purchased an 18,000 sq. ft. building four miles down Colfax Avenue in the heart of the Aurora Cultural Arts District.
We began brewing here in 2022 with an expanded production facility, granting us greater flexibility and creative freedom as we continue to evolve.
Our Aurora location is currently open as a pop-up style taproom Friday-Sunday, with plans to expand the space in 2024 into a larger taproom to gather with our friends and neighbors.
