Big Beer Brings Protest to Mexicali

February 2nd, 2018

Water is a basic human right, correct? Even within our society’s divided climate, I think that is something we can all agree upon. No person should go without water. I mean, after all, an adult human body consists of about 60% water. It’s safe to say, we need it. Now, let me ask you another question: It’s not a shock to anyone that California, and southwestern states in general have been suffering from a drought, correct? So, why would Baja California be any different? Wouldn’t they be suffering from the same drought as us? The answer is, yes, they are suffering from severe drought, causing... Read More

Backcountry Pizza: Pints & Pies

December 8th, 2017

What goes better with beer than pizza? I don’t know about ya’ll, but when I’m scarfing down a cheesy scrumptious slice, dripping with that orange grease, I’m in need of something strong to wash it down. Those bubbles and hops seem to tone down the greasiness of the pizza, making a nice cold one all the more refreshing. Backcountry Pizza & Tap House does it right with that perfect pairing of a pie and a pint. With 68 beers on tap and 350 bottled beers, Backcountry Pizza is Boulder’s largest selection of draft microbrews. Not to mention, they have dozens of pizzas... Read More

The Rocky Mountain Toad

November 30th, 2017

In this part of the state, where the Rocky Mountains tower over the prairies, the mountain toad is a symbol of health. The mountain toad, an adaptable amphibian, is able to survive on both land and water, so when their population is flourishing, the overall ecosystem is as well.  These little creatures that call the Rockies home, represent vitality to the people of Golden, and a sense of togetherness, working to build a better community. Mountain Toad Brewing has chosen this symbol of health to represent their brand, bringing together locals and wanderers alike to share a brew.   Mountain... Read More

Give Thanks to Beer

November 24th, 2017

I hope everyone had a terrific Turkey Day and gave thanks for what they love most. Personally, I am extremely thankful for the wonderful city of Boulder, and all of the beer that comes along with it! But what is it that makes the beer in Boulder so delicious? Well, Boulder is a booming mecca for the craft beer industry, and happens to be home of the highly regarded Brewer’s Association. The Brewer’s Association is an organization that was implemented in order to protect independent brewers and their craft. In the name of protecting craft beers, the Brewer’s Association has launched their... Read More

New Terrain: Curiosity Crafts Community

November 17th, 2017

Wondering which craft brew to try next? Just follow your curiosity, wander down the road to Golden, and you will be greeted by the New Terrain Brewing Company. Located just up Table Mountain Parkway, this new-aged brewery is surrounded by breathtaking views and even better beer. When I first stepped foot in New Terrain, my immediate thought was, “I’m home.” Not only are their beers exquisite, but the vibes are unmatched. I wouldn’t even describe it as a brewery, but rather a meeting place for those struck by wanderlust and on the search for a good beer. They boldly blend... Read More

POSTing Up in Boulder

November 3rd, 2017

Have you guys tried the Post Brewing Company’s new location in Boulder? I have! And, it’s now one of my favorite hangouts in town. Hot Chicken Loves Cold Beer, what more is needed to entice you?! The poultry and pilsners are calling your name! I was lucky enough to heed that beckoning, and make the Grand Opening on Thursday, November 2nd. The place was bumping, filled with boisterous people ready for a brew. An unbelievable atmosphere with unbelievable employees. Lead brewmaster, Nick Tedeschi, and head chef, Brett Smith, make a mean duo. Their combo of pipin’ hot chicken and... Read More

A Brief History of the Beer Boot

October 6th, 2017

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

Left Hand Knows Nitro

September 29th, 2017

Anyone out there wondering what makes a nitro, a nitro? You are? Alright, well let me give you a little lesson with the help of the Left Hand Brewery. It’s no secret that Left Hand Brewing Co. is Number 1 when it comes to nitros, so I made my way up to Longmont to learn from the best. They sure did teach me a thing or two about these bodacious beers, and of course I had to test a few to grasp the full experience. After talking to a few employees, I came up with a quick guide to nitros: Basically, a regular beer uses 100% carbon dioxide during the carbonation process, while nitros do not.... Read More

Leaves are crunching beneath your feet, the air’s a little crisper, and you’re dreaming of apple cider and pumpkin pie – Fall is here. Truly my favorite time of year, I couldn’t be more excited to taste some seasonal ales in the Boulder area this Autumn. So, with the help of the amazing team at Hazel’s Beverage World, I went to picking and found some sweet pumpkin and malty local Oktoberfest flavors. Here’s a few that I’d definitely recommend to you seasonal beer lovers:   Pump Action by 4 Noses Brewing Co.: An Imperial Pumpkin Ale that’s sweet... Read More

Boulder Beer: Bold Since 1979

September 15th, 2017

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

Cheerful & Beer-Full at the Bohemian Biergarten

September 1st, 2017

Sunday’s can sometimes be a bit of a drag – a day to sleep in, run errands, and dread work the next morning. Therefore, when it comes to finding something fun on a Sunday night, the struggle is real. On Sunday nights the majority of Boulder is a quiet community nestled in the foot of the Flatirons. Little do we know, the Bohemian Biergarten is booming every Sunday night with their gut-busting Comedy Show. That’s right, the Bohemian Biergarten is turning those lazy days into Sunday Funday. The laughs come at a $5 entrance fee, and begin Sunday at 7pm, and continue for a 2nd show at 9:15pm.... Read More

Grab a Brew & View Mayweather vs. McGregor

August 25th, 2017

Throw back some brews and get pumped up for the big fight this Saturday night! We all know what I’m talking about – Conor McGregor v.s. Floyd Mayweather. It’s a boxing match for the ages that we’re all anxiously awaiting to see. Who will win? Mayweather, the undefeated longtime pro-boxer, or McGregor, the Irish charmer/MMA master? I guess we’ll have to wait and see; but where is a fan to watch the Mayweather/McGregor showdown in Boulder? Well, after spending tedious amounts of time calling the most prominent bars in Boulder, I realized the hard way, that watching boxing fights is just... Read More

The Rayback Community

August 18th, 2017

Ask me one of my go-to spots to grab a beer in Boulder – I’d say the Rayback Collective every time, and not just because of Mountain Monday’s (All Upslopes=$4). Not only does it have 30 taps, but you are flooded with good vibes the second you enter the park. Known as Boulder’s Backyard, the Rayback is an old warehouse converted into a bar, which opens up into a food truck park. The park is a quick bike ride for North Boulderites, just off the Goose Creek bike path. The food trucks are on a rotating schedule, but they keep you updated @therayback. Sounds pretty amazing, doesn’t it? Well,... Read More

Aquarius: An Artisan Ale

August 11th, 2017

While perusing the aisles at Hazel’s Beverage World, I stumbled upon a local brewer that I had yet to try – Cellar West Artisan Ales. Their unique funky packaging popped, immediately catching my eye. Out of all their wonderful brews, it was the Aquarius, a recent addition to the Cellar West family, that peaked my interest. The Aquarius, a Saison whose Belgian roots truly represent in this aged ale, was introduced just this past April at Cellar West’s very own Tasting Room. As I took my first sip of this craft beer centered around Spelt Malt, I was quickly drawn in. The fruit fizzled... Read More

August 4th, 2017

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
