Prost Brewing Company
A premium craft brewery specializing in authentic German-style beers, Prost Brewing Company is an important addition to Colorado’s renowned craft beer scene.
Located in the Lower Highlands neighborhood of Denver, Colorado, Prost Brewing Company has been a celebrated addition to the state’s reputable craft brewery scene. The brewery, which was founded in 2012, is Denver’s first German-style brewery, focusing exclusively on authentic, German-style ‘biers’ brewed in accordance to the German Purity Law of 1516, or the Reinheitsgebot (pronounced Rhinehites-geh-boat), which limits the ingredients in beer to water, barley, yeast and hops. The name of the brewery, Prost, is a German word that translates to ‘To your health!’ or ‘Cheers!’
The opening of Prost Brewing Company was one of the most anticipated events of the year for the Colorado beer industry. The team of owners behind the brand showed their dedication to crafting German-style beers by purchasing a 50+ year-old copper brewing system from a small German town near Bamberg in Bavaria, Germany. It took months to transport the equipment to Denver, but the effort was well worth it to the small brewing team. They are proud to be sharing this tradition and history with the beer lovers of Colorado.
Prost beers are notable for their approachability, clean flavors and the exclusive use of authentic 100% German ingredients. Many of the beers have been honored with multiple awards from national beer competitions and the brewery continues to gain popularity as one of the top craft brewers in the state.
Prost Brewing Company currently operates two tasting rooms in Denver and Ft. Collins, Colorado. They are unique with their biergartens and genuine beer hall feel, complete with traditional beer tent flags, huge steins, antique beer signs, and long communal tables that encourage a friendly and lively atmosphere for enjoying authentic German brews.
Prost Brewing Company produces about 8,000 barrels of beer annually and currently distributes to bars and restaurants throughout Colorado, Wyoming, Utah and Wisconsin.
