Excellent Beers & Beards Abound at Großen Bart Brewery

Review of Großen Bart Brewery in Longmont, CO | http://bottlemakesthree.com

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! We hope you’re all getting ready for a few days off to relax, recharge, and remember the meaning of this holiday. We certainly are ready for a break from the daily grind! However before we head off to celebrate, we have one more brewery review for you this week. As you may remember, earlier this month we headed north to Longmont to visit a few breweries. Our first stop was 300 Suns Brewing, which we reviewed on Monday. On that same Saturday, after our visit to 300 Suns, we finally made our way over to try some beers at Großen Bart Brewery.

Before we get started, let’s get this out of the way. Großen Bart Brewery is not the easiest name to deal with.

We’re going to use the official name as listed on the website, Großen Bart, although in some instances WordPress seems to revert this to Grossen Bart, so you may see it both ways. If this is too confusing for you, well, I guess we’re sorry. Now go get a beer & get over it. On to the important stuff……
