As it turns out, Denver is one of the best cities to live in if you like beer. Even better, if you’re super into music and super into beer, we know the perfect place for you. Ratio Beerworks, located on Larimer Street in Denver, is the most tasteful combination of the two, no pun intended! The founders of the brewery met through the independent music scene years back and went on to lead successful careers in marketing, finance, and brewing of course. They eventually teamed up to create this innovative and hip micro brewery for all of us to enjoy!

Ratio Beerworks fosters a lot of awesome events in the Denver community, like hosting comedy events, even silent discos, and, perhaps the once closest to their roots, Ratio Sessions! Organized by Ratio Beerworks, Soda Jerk Presents, and Mostly Harmless Podcasts, bands that are on tour through Denver stop by and do a stripped down, live show in Ratio Beerworks’ set room. We had the privilege of attending one of their Ratio Sessions. Our ears had the adventure of hearing Beach Slang live!

Based out of Philadelphia, PA and made up of one part James Alex, one part Ed McNulty, and one part JP Flexner, the band sings and plays the guitar, bass, and drums. Loud. It’s a magical kind of popish punk, a musical catharsis that your head naturally bobs along to. Beach Slang has already gained so much traction after only having released two 7-inches, with the help of no marketing team, but the help of their music! In music slang, that means they’ve released two small albums, two EP’s if you will.

Though this is the first Ratio Session we’ve attended, we can say with absolute certainty that we’ll be back again if not for the bands then for the awesome beer!  James Alex of Beach Slang performs at Ratio Beerworks in Denver, CO.James Alex of Beach Slang performs at Ratio Beerworks in Denver, CO.
