FLASHBACK: Colorado’s Oldest Craft Brewery is Saying Goodbye

August 8th, 2023

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,... Read More

Flashback 2015: Finkel and Garf: A Guide to Boulder’s Own Whimsical Brewery

December 27th, 2022
Finkel and Garf, Gunbarrel Colorado

I’ll be the first one to say it: and this is tough, coming from a self-proclaimed beer junkie. Sometimes, craft brew lovers, we take ourselves a wee bit too seriously. It’s not a problem, mind you. But have you ever been drinking a beer with a friend, only to be so caught up in predicting the grain bill, the hops used, the clarity of the water used, the astrological sign the beer was brewed under… that you forget why you’re actually there in the first place? At the end of the day, shouldn’t enjoying a beer really be about where you are, and who you are with? We don’t... Read More

Flashback Friday 2017 ~ 24 Years of Avery!

August 2nd, 2022

Looking for something local to do this Saturday? Celebrate the Avery Brewing Company’s 24th anniversary with some good tunes and plenty of beers. Avery Brewing has been around since it was established in 1993 by Adam Avery and his father, Larry. Their beers have pleased the mouths of locals for years, but now they have spread beyond Boulder. Just when I was living in Boston, I was introduced to what is now my go-to beer, Avery’s White Rascal. They’ve even crossed U.S. borders, selling their Boulder brews in Sweden and Japan! Clearly, there’s a lot to celebrate, so why not... Read More

Boulder’s Hidden Gem: Asher Organic Brewing Company

July 8th, 2022

Meet Chris Asher, the brain behind Colorado’s first all-organic brewery, the Asher Brewing Company. Chris, an east coaster at heart, moved to Colorado after graduating from Wesleyan University, and his career as a brew master began to flourish. As an east-coaster myself, I was already familiar with Chris through the crazy 6 degrees of separation. Oddly enough, my mom, back in Mass, happens to work at Chris’s high school alma mater, the Noble & Greenough School. So, of course, I had to meet Chris upon moving to Colorado. I mean, come on, he went from teaching home-brewing classes in college... Read More

What Classifies a Craft Brew?

June 18th, 2022

“What makes a craft brew, a craft brew?” I innocently asked. The man looked at me, as if I were still in high school, barely old enough to drink a soda, let alone a beer. He replied, with a perplexed look on his face, “As long as you produce less beer than Sam Adams, you’re considered a craft brewery.” I thought to myself, “Seriously?” Now, I don’t recall where I was (it was one of those nights), but I was speaking to a Boulder beer aficionado, or so I thought. This idea of what classifies a craft brew slipped my mind, until a recent argument over... Read More

Looking Back: Boulder Beer: Bold Since 1979

May 14th, 2022

Founded in 1979, on a farm just northeast of town, Boulder Beer has come a long way since it planted its roots in the Boulder Valley 38 years ago. As Colorado’s First Craft Brewery, Boulder Beer quickly took off, giving beer lovers an extraordinary change. After expanding their product, the brewmasters realized that they needed to expand their space as well, moving to the Pub on Wilderness Place in 1994. There are now two Boulder Beer locations – the one on Wilderness Place, and the other just off the Pearl Street Mall on Walnut. The Pub on Wilderness has to be my favorite location,... Read More

A Brief History of the Beer Boot

January 11th, 2022

Drinking beer is not the only thing I do, so the other day, I decided to go on a lovely jaunt through downtown Boulder. Where was I walking, do you ask? To the Bohemian Biergarten, of course! I was on a quest to discover the history behind the beloved beer boot, or Das Boot, as many of us fondly refer to it. I arrived at my destination, but to my disappointment, their Bavarian chef, Martin König, was away, and my question could not be answered. I actually think my curiosity may have sparked the same questioning surrounding Das Boot in others. Anyways, I am not the most patient person, so instead... Read More

Sanitas, Sewn into Boulder fabric for the long haul

In most ways, Sanitas is similar to a tech start up: they are veterans from other companies in the industry, they knew exactly what they wanted to do, they are way ahead of schedule, they are focused on creating a community and being part of the existing one, they take what they are given by their surroundings and make it a positive situation, they give the customers exactly what they need, even if those customers don’t know it yet and the company always has a good story. The founders, all homebrewers originally, Chris Coyne, Michael Memsic and Zach Nichols all worked at other breweries originally,... Read More
