Copper Kettle Brewing Company is a locally owned mom and pop brewery with a tasting room established in Denver in 2011, surrounded by local neighborhoods. CKBC seeks to create what America seems to have lost: a local neighborhood bar in which we strive to know your name and your story. Sit down, relax, and enjoy a beer with new and old friends.

HOW IT ALL STARTED
