Buying Real Estate in Denver’s RiNo: The Brewing District

If you want to buy a home in Denver and love a good craft beer with friends, consider RiNo or River North neighborhood. According to a recent article by The Denver Post, some people have dubbed RiNo the brewing district because of a number of new brewery tap rooms opening up. North of downtown Denver, River North has the largest concentrations of breweries not just in Denver but in the country. For those who want to live in a hip neighborhood and own a home that will likely appreciate in value, RiNo is one of those transitional neighborhoods that’s become a destination for hipsters and artists as well as craft beer lovers.

  • Walking for a night on the town

A lot of young people buy in RiNo because they like the idea of walking or bicycling instead of driving for a night out on the town. The Denver Post points out people often walk or bike to the different tap rooms in the craft brewing district in RiNo.

  • Growing and changing with a town

Some people believe RiNo is only made up of young hipsters in their 20s, but that’s a misconception. Millennials are growing up and starting families. Families are moving into many of the homes in the RiNo area, which appeals to many people. Another growing segment of home owners is the baby boomer population of retirees. Breweries as opposed to bars have a more sophisticated edge as many retirees like the feeling provided by a neighborhood pub or tap-room.

According to The Denver Post, some of the breweries in RiNo that are open or will open soon include Bierstadt Lagerhaus, Beryl’s Beer Co., Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project, Black Shirt Brewing Co., Mockery Brewing, Epic Brewing Co., Great Divide Brewing Co., Ratio Beerworks, Zephyr Brewing Co. and Our Mutual Friend. In addition to breweries, there are many appealing restaurants, coffee shops and other businesses thriving in the River North neighborhood.
