Peaks and Pints Beer Flight: Cerebral


In 2015, Doctor of Physical Therapy Sean Buchan, microbiologist Chris Washenberger and financier Dan McGuire — all homebrewers — opened Cerebral Brewing in Denver’s Congress Park neighborhood along the city’s famed Colfax Avenue. The three met at Washenberger’s Denver homebrew club where the idea “to combine scientific methodology with an artistic viewpoint to create extremely drinkable beers spanning a broad spectrum of styles” became a reality. With their scientific background, Buchan and Washenberger want to make quality one of their hallmarks — and idea that carries through in their name. From its hop-bombs to its luscious stouts and sophisticated saisons, Cerebral has a menu that has been gathering national accolades from magazines, fellow breweries, and craft-beer fans. But Cerebral and head brewer Buchan are probably best known for their hazy, hoppy offerings. Today, Peaks & Pints presents another in-house flight of Cerebral beer — a flight we’re calling Peaks and Pints Beer Flight: Cerebral.
