Colorado Craft Beer Week



It’s finally here! Colorado Craft Beer Week is a time to really drink in the best that Colorado has to offer for craft beer. We have some pretty fun little events going on throughout the week, so come on by!

Friday, March 21st: we will be tapping our Deeply Disturbed double dry hopped double IPA. It’s like our Disturbed Reflection, just a little crazier.

Sunday, March 23rd: Oxymoronic Monolith tapping. Monolith stands on it’s own, but we do happen to have three versions (Trilith?) that we will have on tap: our classic Monolith Imperial Stout, Merlot Monolith, and Bourbon Barrel Aged Monolith.

Monday, March 24th – Friday, March 28th: every day we will have a different beer running through our Randall filled with hops! We will announce which beer will be flowing that day on Facebook.

Thursday, March 27th: NKOTB at the Lobby. This is a beer-centric event that encourages you to dress up in your greatest 80s finery and strut your stuff. We will have one of our beers on tap for your tasting pleasure!

We hope that you have a great week trying out all of the awesome stuff that Colorado brewers have come up with and we can’t wait to see you at Rickoli’s!

Open Call for Art!


Dev is a work of art

If you’ve visited the brewery in the last three months, you may have noticed the lovely art that has graced the north wall of the taproom. We love having local artists display their art (and hopefully sell a few pieces) every month with us, and we are looking to keep that tradition rolling! On Wednesday, January 8th from 5:30-8pm we are hosting an open call for art portfolios at the brewery.

If you are a local artist (or know a badass artist), bring your portfolio or some samples of your work down to the brewery, grab a beer, and we’ll talk to you about your art. We are looking for items to hang on the wall, but do have some limited space for work that is non-wall-hangable.

We generally have the art up for a month, and we will work with the artist to host a reception toward the beginning of the month.

If you are unable to make it on Wednesday, please email a link to your online portfolio to dev (at) breweryrickoli (dot) com by Tuesday evening.

We look forward to checking out the amazing talent in the area and getting some pretty new art for our walls!

Yelp Factory Fete

On December 4, 2013, we braved the bitter cold and snow to participate in the Yelp Factory Fete at the EXDO Center in Five Points. The invite-only, mod-themed party had around 450 attendees and featured several local food joints as well as breweries and liquor purveyors. Despite the frigid temperatures, we had a blast and were delighted to warm up several of our customers, Rickstars, and GABF volunteers with our tasty brews.

We were pouring Wasa Pwichu Winter Porter, Elke’s Brown Ale, Quicher Bichen Dutch Strong Ale, and Totally Eye-P-A through the Randall (our hop infuser). We blew through Totally, Quicher Bichen, and Elke’s and had only a pint or two left of Wasa Pwichu when we rolled home. So it was definitely a good night!

Yelp hired a professional photographer to capture the evening, and here are some of the shots he captured throughout the night!

 It’s our Rickstar, Doug!


 Dev making sure the beer is ready for our adoring public.

 This party’s about to rock!

We had a great time at the event and can’t wait for the (warmer) festival season to ramp back up!

“This has been a crazy, awesome year for us,” says owner and brewmaster Rick Abitbol, “and we wanted to do something to thank our customers and staff for supporting us through it all. We also figured some excellent beer would be welcome after Thanksgiving stress and Black Friday shopping.”

Brewery Rickoli will also be launching a beer club dubbed the “Rickstars.” The membership will be limited to 49 individuals for the first year and cost $75. Memberships go on sale during the anniversary party and include:

About Brewery Rickoli

The premiere brewery in Wheat Ridge, Brewery Rickoli is bringing flavorful, gluten-removed beers to the western suburbs of Denver. Owner and brewmaster Rick Abitbol had been professionally brewing along the Front Range for over a decade before deciding to open his own brewery. With the help of Jaqua Abitbol, and partner Deb Zanker, Rickoli’s opened on November 28, 2012. The brewery is the smallest in Colorado, brewing on a half-barrel “keggle” system, but still managing to keep 16 beers on tap. In February 2013, Brewery Rickoli grew with the addition of Josh Norton as the second brewer and Devon Adams as marketing and beer education. Josh has helped Rickoli’s increase production and efficiency, as well as become a valuable promoter within the craft beer industry. In November, Devon passed the second level in Cicerone certification, to become one of less than 1,000 individuals worldwide to hold the title of Certified Cicerone®.

Brewery Rickoli recently won the Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream® experienceship program which will allow the brewery staff to work with Boston Beer Company on all aspects of their business. It will also allow Rick to travel to Boston to enhance his skills and offers the potential of creating a collaboration beer with the Boston Beer Company.
