Handcrafted in Louisville, Colorado

Tucked away in a funky corner of Historic Downtown Louisville is a laid-back brewery and tasting room serving award-winning craft brewed beers and out of this world pub fare.

A TECHNICAL APPROACH

Gravity Brewing is owned and operated by registered professional engineers and brewing industry professionals who are just shy of obsessed about how things work in the physical world. Based on this strong appreciation and knowledge of science and engineering, Gravity Brewing takes the art and technique of brewing as seriously as possible while keeping a humble perspective of our existence in this world. We are always striving to push the envelope of conventional brewing, while maintaining a strong regard for tradition and authenticity.

Inspirational Explorations

The name Gravity encapsulates this strong passion nicely in one word. Gravity represents the goal to produce high quality, full flavored ales and lagers; having a product of substance and dignity; the adventure lifestyle enjoyed in Colorado; a sense of our existence in this world; and thought provocation. Not to mention, Gravity is a common term used amongst brewers to measure and specify the density of wort/beer and thus determine the alcohol content. We are constantly looking towards innovation in engineering, science and space exploration for inspiration in defining our brand.
