  • Caffeine, On The Go

    The bottled cold-brew market is heating up.


    Denver is quickly asserting itself as a top coffee city. For proof, look to the cold-drink aisle of the market, where local companies are crowding out popular brands from Austin and Portland. A few worth picking up:

    Boxcar Coffee Roasters’ bold Bottlerocket bucks conventional cold-brew wisdom—it’s brewed hot with a minimal chill time.

    NüBrü Coffee skipped the cafe and went straight to the (plastic) bottle: “We’re all about making that crisp and refreshing cold brew a camper can throw in a backpack,” founder Nick Romcevich says.

    Corvus Coffee Roasters launched its hopped brew last summer. Pop the top and taste notes of chocolate and citrus.
