BREW NEWS: New name, same brew at Ursula; new beers at Mu and Copper Kettle


AURORA | The sign above the door hasn’t been the only casualty in Ursula Brewery’s (née Coda Brewing Co.) ongoing rebranding effort. The brewery on the CU Anschutz Medical Campus’ has gone through a bit of turnover and metamorphosis in recent months, as have the names of some of their suds. But that doesn’t mean the quality has diminished in the slightest. The brewery’s uber popular PB&J Porter, now simply referred to as “Crustless” will be back this weekend, showcasing the watering hole’s new looks, but same, scrumptious suds.

The brewery also added kambucha from Happy Leaf Kambucha to their roster of beverages this week. The first one on tap is a keg of Cranberry Lavender.

And check out this week’s business story about the steady growth in craft brewing, with a local focus on Aurora’s newest beer maker, Launch Pad Brewery.

Despite the late spring snowfall and frigid temps, at Copper Kettle Brewing Co., summer is almost here. To ring in the warmer weather, they’re releasing a very small batch Friday of the Blueberry Scone Ale. But it’s just one barrel, so hustle over if you want to try it.

At Mu Brewery, they tapped the Orange Crush this week, a sour with orange zest and ginger.

At Dry Dock Brewing Co., construction continues at the The Brew Hut, the brew supply shop adjacent to South Dock. We will have more in the coming weeks on construction at the shop — which helped get some local pros, including Nathan Flatland at Mu and David Levesque at Launch Pad their start as homebrewers.
