The first Latin-owned and operated craft brewery in Colorado, Cheluna Brewing Company was inspired by Oaxaca, Mexico, the home of owner and founder Javier Pérez’s grandparents. The name of the brewery comes from a combination of the words chela, a slang word for beer used throughout Mexico, and luna, the Spanish word for moon.
The sun and moon logo of Cheluna helps connote the idea of balance, an important element to all of the beers they create, while also referencing a popular design element found throughout Mexican art and decor.
Located within the Stanley Marketplace, Cheluna invites guests to bring in or order food from any of the market’s restaurants to enjoy with their fresh brews or during one of their frequent events. You can usually find live music, trivia, and more happening at the brewery.
Here are some of their upcoming free or cheap events:
