WHAT IS RAÍCES BREWING CO.?
Raíces is a Latino owned and operated brewpub in CO. It features award winning craft beers, a rotating Latin American food selection and on-going cultural events. Raíces aims to become a reference center for those interested in learning about Latin culture.
For Latinos, Raíces is a place where to connect with other Latinos and feel at home surrounded by traditional Latin food, music, culture and great beer. For non-Latinos, Raíces is a place where, in addition to having great food, music and beer, people can learn about Latin culture and its richness.
Through our programming we serve as a Community, Cultural and Resource Center with our pillars being
COMMUNITY | CULTURE | CERVEZA
COMUNIDAD | CULTURA | CERVEZA
Raíces, meaning “roots”, is the community taproom delivering high
quality craft beer and entertainment to connect its guests through Latino culture.
At Raíces, we believe that culture is an asset.
Raíces sparks Latino cultural awareness in everyone, and crafts cross-cultural connections that enriches our community.
