About

Matt and Jessica Hess opened the award-winning River North Brewery in February 2012. Brewing in Denver, Matt focuses on Belgian-style ales and American ales with a Belgian twist, with an emphasis on barrel-aging.

A former engineer, Matt describes his brewing style as “yeast-centric,” showcasing his favorite ingredient in beer. In doing so, Matt pushes his beers beyond the norm, turning your palate on to the full spectrum of complexity imparted by Belgian yeasts.

River North was the first brewery to open in the RiNo neighborhood, but in October 2015, we said goodbye to our original location. Our new home is at 6021 Washington Street, just north of downtown Denver, featuring an expanded taproom and brewhouse.
