FLASHBACK: Colorado’s Oldest Craft Brewery is Saying Goodbye
With the craft beer landscape across Colorado continuing to change, Boulder Beer Co. is the next brewery finding ways to adapt to stay alive. This means they will be shutting down their brewpub and facility this year. Fortunately for the many fans of Boulder Beer Co., they have reached an agreement with another brewery in Denver that will continue to make Boulder Beer, so you’ll still be seeing your favorite pours on shelves and in restaurants around Colorado and the US.
As Seltzer has continued to eat up market share in the alcoholic beverage industry, the craft beer surge has slowed significantly, and there are few bigger signs of this than the oldest craft brewery in the state closing shop. Fortunately, this is not the end of the company, and there are plans for a future brewpub in a smaller and more manageable location. Boulder Beer Co. shows the kind of business they are by helping all of their employees find jobs in restaurants across the Boulder area, so they don’t have to battle unemployment.
