Call to Arms Brewing Company was founded by three guys: Jesse Brookstein, Jon Cross, and Chris Bell. Like so many friends you meet later in life, these three struck up a friendship while partaking in a shared passion – in this case, brewing, cellaring, and packaging beer at Avery Brewing Company in Boulder, CO. Call to Arms focuses strongly on a love of local, traditional food and drink to create a timeless, moody, neighborhood-friendly brewery focusing on craft beers, artisan provisions, and community awareness.
"CTA’s taproom definitely has something for everyone, and every something is brewed well. They don’t worry about replicating past tradition, they don’t worry about setting the next future trend. They just hang out on Tennyson and quietly go about making fantastic beer. You can’t do anything other than respect (and enjoy) that.”
Eight craft beers, from a cardamom-spiced, Belgian-style wit to a rich oatmeal porter, grab the spotlight at this Berkeley brewery and taproom that's the brainchild of three Avery Brewing alums. Open every day of the week (a rarity for taprooms), the publike space is outfitted with garage doors that open to a large parking lot that features the Uno Mas food truck, which dispenses delicious Mexican street tacos to the hungry masses Thursday through Sunday.
Tamir Danon, owner/brewer at Novel Strand Brewing, obviously enjoys Call to Arms: “What I like about CTA is that they still have fun. They’ll brew up fantastic examples of any style of beer, from a Czech dark pilsner to a wine-barrel fermented Brett saison, but they do it without taking themselves too seriously, and it makes their beer genuine and fun. Beer has always been a drink that was for the people- was for everyone, and CTA’s taproom definitely has something for everyone, and every something is brewed well."
Call to Arms Brewing Company is located at 4526 Tennyson St. in the historic Berkeley neighborhood of northwest Denver, Colorado. To learn more about our hours and what beers are currently on tap, please visit our Taproom page.
