Wynkoop Brewing Company was founded in 1988 by then out-of-work geologist (and current governor of Colorado) John Hickenlooper and a group of urban pioneers. Wynkoop Brewing is Colorado's first brewpub and a pioneer of America's craft beer movement. The brewery brewed some of the first styles of craft beer ever seen in Colorado and the US. The Brewers Association's annual award for innovation is named after Wynkoop's original brewer Russell Schehrer. The brewpub was a key catalyst in the rebirth of Denver's formerly decaying lower downtown section (now known as LoDo).
