Dos Luces Brewery
While barley is highly regarded in the world of beer, corn is often disregarded as a brewing grain and even, at times, treated with disdain. However, the history of brewing with corn goes back at least as far as that for barley and is rooted right here in the Western Hemisphere. At Dos Luces, we have explored the history behind some of the many styles of beer traditionally brewed with corn, and have embraced corn as our core grain. The “Dos” Luces (Two Lights) represent our two core types of beer, a corn-based Chicha and a corn and maguey-based Pulque.
Dos Luces. The sun and the moon. Inti and Meztli. Chicha and Pulque. We chose the name Dos Luces because it represents the duality of light – While you might be tempted to imagine this as light and darkness, we prefer to consider the bright light of day in contrast to the brightest beacon of light at night. Call it divine inspiration or simply the accumulation of ideas within two swirling brains, Dos Luces represents the idea that there is always light when you look for it.
Thistle and Mint
Thistle and Mint was founded with two main goals; first curating unique gastronomic experiences and second discovering colorado’s culture through cuisine.
With the foundation of our events being a Personal Chef Experience, we provide intimate dinners with menus based in Colorado history. We limit to sourcing only from Colorado to showcase the “terroir” and tell stories through food. Our menus change with the seasons. We host Pop-up Dinners and cater to intimate weddings, small events, and personal dining experiences.
