Creating ‘forbidden beer’ is at the heart of Verboten Brewing’s philosophy. Since our beginning as humble homebrewers in our garage, to the opening of the brewery in 2013 and continuing today, we have focused on producing beer that would have been verboten by Germany’s Beer Purity Law. We do this through unique ingredients, innovative brewing processes, and a focus on barrel and wood aging. It is this commitment to creativity and quality that has enabled us to take numerous awards, including two World Beer Cup medals at just one year old, a 2016 Great American Beer Festival medal, and most recently, a gold at the Festival of Barrel Aged Beers in Chicago.
Today, Verboten is located in Historic Downtown Loveland, and we continue this focus, pioneering new styles such as the Brut IPA, and embracing the challenge of creating truly unique, and utterly enjoyable craft beer. Our three partners drive the creativity, quality, and success of Verboten on a daily basis: Josh Grenz, our head brewer; Jason Bowser, who manages operations; and Angie Grenz, director of marketing and the business end of Verboten.
