Exciting Craft Beer News at The Rio!

R&R MPA, a Mexican Pale Ale by Renegade Brewing.

I have been a fan of the Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant since first moving to Colorado 15 years ago. I’ve always enjoyed their margaritas, food, patios, and atmosphere. And now, as a craft beer drinker, there is even more to love. All six of the Rio’s locations have (or soon will) at least one beer on tap that was created exclusively for them by a local brewery.

The Ft. Collins location was the first to tap these special beers, by Odell and Coopersmith’s. Coopersmith’s brewed Rio Trigo, a wheat beer with blood oranges. And Odell created Battalion, a tequila barrel-aged imperial stout with dark chocolate, cinnamon, house-roasted poblanos and dried chipotles, as well as Sangre de Chueco, a tequila barrel-aged  imperial Vienna lager with agave nectar, blood oranges, and lime. The Rio in Denver recently tapped Renegade’s R&R MPA, a Mexican Pale Ale made with El Dorado hops, a full-flavored citrus forward pale.
