West Flanders Brewing Company : A Truly Intercontinental Tale

May 24th, 2015
West Flanders Brewing Company Boulder

At this point, I realize it’s rather passé, but I just have to talk about this month’s unusual weather one more time. Notably, the daily gloomy forecasts remind me very vividly of my time spent in the city of Amsterdam. As a young and impressionable collegian, I can’t imagine a better crash course in beer culture. Every day would greet us with thick fog, the occasional drizzle, only to be replaced with an onslaught of rain and grumpy attitudes. So, along with some of the other Americans on my study abroad semester, decided to seek out Amsterdam’s best bar for beer. While... Read More

FATE Brewing: Drinking in the Land of Hops and Collaboration

May 17th, 2015
Fate Brewing Company Boulder

Sometimes, friends, it just hits me. I wake up in the morning, and after a strong cup of Kona, after a solid breakfast made up of a bowl of oatmeal and maybe half a bagel, I say to myself, “I could really use a hoppy beer right about now.” Perhaps this is indicative of a much larger problem in my life, but that’s beside the point. Sometimes, friends, I know that on that day, I will want to get the hoppiest, bitterest, and most floral barley water I can possibly find. You know the stuff; the kind that would make a child swear off drinking forever, if dad ever let them have a sip.... Read More

Escape the Rain! Stay Dry! Nighthawk Brewery!

May 10th, 2015
Nighthawk Brewing Broomfield

Waking up to the sound of rain is a sobering reminder for the people of Boulder county. In a way, it brings us all back to those days in September of 2013, when we never thought we’d see the sun again. Some of us were lucky. Me? I was lucky. I live on the second floor, and even though people were saying, “It’s seen better days,” about my condo all the way back in the 70s, it didn’t get too much damage, a leaky overhang aside. Some of our neighbors, however, weren’t so lucky. It’s an interesting mindset for a town. Places like Portland or Seattle, cities... Read More

Feelin’ Fine, Springtime, Twisted Pine (Rhyming is Hard)

May 3rd, 2015
Twisted Pine Brewing Co Boulder

To be fair, the “rhyme” in the title of this post is indeed a slant rhyme, which totally counts. What are you, the rhyming police? Does such an organization exist? If they do, I want to humbly thank them for their service in smugly correcting poets all across this land. Anyway, welcome to this week’s editorial in which Max drinks a few beers, and tells other Boulderites what he thinks of them. On tap this week? Twisted Pine Brewing Company, a major-league brewery in the middle of Boulder, Colorado. Before I get started in today’s beer experience, I want to tell all you... Read More
