Meet Bobby Noyes

December 8th, 2017

Meet Bobby Noyes! Bobby is the founder of, a local business celebrating its 20-year anniversary this year.  Rocky Mounts provides all outdoor enthusiasts with, what one could argue, is the most crucial piece of your adventure: the rack to transport your gear. Bobby moved to Boulder in 1993 to pursue his obsession for cycling and what he found was a lack of quality bike racks to transport cyclists’ gear from event to event.  So, Bobby started building bike racks by hand and selling them out of the back of his truck. The small operation out of the back of his truck grew into a full lineup... Read More

The Amazing Adventures of Spencer Dinwiddie

November 28th, 2017

The Amazing Adventures of Spencer Dinwiddie. The title reads like a Jules Verne novel and conjures up images of dark London streets, characters with handle-bar moustaches, Bowler hats, and hot air balloons scurrying throughout European clouds.  But while the name seems classic, the story was almost over before it began. A top-100 recruit from Taft High School in Los Angeles, Spencer Dinwiddie came to the University of Colorado in 2011 with all the makings of a great player.  At 6’6 with outstanding range and a great handle, Dinwiddie was an immediate starter and quickly became the go-to-guy... Read More

The Cannabegrateful Yoga Challenge

November 25th, 2017

I hope everyone had a terrific Thanksgiving. With it being a time when we all reflect on what we’re thankful for, it feels fitting to give some thanks of my own, and to share about my recent experience in The Cannabegrateful Yoga Challange. This Instagram challenge, hosted by Greenlove Denver and Canna_Sam, started on November 13th and lasted for 7 days. Each day there was a specific yoga pose, but the challenge was more than just taking a photo of your practice. The challenge also consisted of digging deeper to share something we were grateful for each day. The yoga pose line up: Day 1- seated... 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

A Spit Test May Diagnose Your Concussion

November 22nd, 2017

In 2013, the most recent year for which we have data, there were about 2.8 million traumatic brain injury-related emergency room visits, hospitalizations and deaths in the US, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Nearly two-thirds of concussions take place in children and teens and although most patients’ symptoms disappear within two weeks, one-third of children and teens may experience prolonged symptoms of concussion. Up to 25% of kids have long-term symptoms that can last up to four months. In a recent study, Penn State College of Medicine scientists found five... Read More

“This is going to be a little crazy.” explains Patrick, as he leaps over the gap on the summit of Green Mountain. “I’m tapering, so I’m trying not to hurt myself.” he mentions after performing his quite magnificent leap. Stoked to meet a fellow mountain runner with a sense for fun and adventure!  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

What Classifies a Craft Brew?

October 27th, 2017

“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

Ratio: Cultivating Carrot Craft Brews

October 20th, 2017

Bopping my head to the easy beats of Twin Peaks’ “Making Breakfast,” I entered my first Colorado brewery, Ratio Beerworks. Entering a Colorado craft brewery was a moment I had been waiting for since the first time my lips touched the unique flavor of a brewmaster’s craft. It was the beginning of my road trip, last September, and I was just high off of life, driving as free as one could be through our chaotic, yet magnificent country. From Boston to Denver, it was pretty much a straight shot, so I was definitely ready to get a brew in me. I stepped into a cluster of 80s vibes... 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

Autumn Ales are in the Air

September 22nd, 2017

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

Faces of Boulder – Sophia

Faces of Boulder Sophia

Meet Sophia! Sophia is an 8-year-old harpist and by far one of the youngest performers on the Pearl Street Mall.  Sophia’s been studying the harp with local music teacher Margot Krimmel after getting the harp as a Christmas present last winter.  Sophia’s father, Alexander told me he had a sense she would be musically inclined and after showing her a picture of a harp, her decision was made.  Make sure to drop a dollar in Sophia’s basket if you see her performing, she’s saving up for her new pedal harp!  Read More

Faces of Boulder – Jeff

September 3rd, 2017

Meet Jeff! Jeff, is my brother who came to visit from Boston a few weeks ago and we went exploring in Rocky Mountain National Park.  I took this portrait when we reached the summit of our hike, a beautiful alpine lake, surrounded but the mountains.  Glad the altitude didn’t get to him!  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
