The Bull & Bush opened its doors in 1971 and soon found itself in the middle of Glendale’s heyday. Long before LoDo attracted the young socialite crowd, Glendale was rocking with the Denver party crowd and it wasn’t uncommon to see a line of people outside eagerly waiting to get through the Bull & Bush front door and into the action. In the mid-90s, the brothers had the game-changing idea to build a brewery adjacent to the restaurant. Since brewing its first batch on New Year’s Day of 1997, the Bull & Bush brewing operation has become world renowned for its great tasting and innovative creations. Master Brewer Gabe Moline’s brews have earned multiple accolades including the Best Beer in a Brewpub award in Westword’s Best of Denver and multiple awards at the annual Denver-hosted Great American Beer Festival (GABF).
The Old North End is Bull & Bush’s entrance into the New England, or North-East, IPA craze. This style has a juicy, tropical aroma and flavor that comes from the use of English yeasts and hop breeds like Citra and Mosaic. Northeast IPAs also tend to have a softer mouthfeel thanks to the sulfite-low East Coast water and the use of oats and wheat in the mashbill. Instead of that classic IPA bite, these beers are often less bitter and have a hazy appearance if they’re partially or wholly unfiltered. Bitterness has been a really divisive issue with IPAs, so this new style of beer really opens the doors for people who may have been turned off by bitterness. The Old North End is dry-hopped with citra lupulin powder! Grab one of these deliciously juicy hazy IPAs today!
