Walnut Brewery Needs to Be on Every Beer Lover’s Bucket List

May 9th, 2017

Walnut Brewery’s Old Elk Brown Ale tastes like victory. Perhaps it’s because the English-style brown ale wins medals as often as the US Olympic gymnastics team; the beer is a two-time Silver and Gold medalist at the Great American Beer Festival awards. The brew is rich and malty, with notes of caramel and chocolate and subtle hops. The beer is as delicious as it is interesting and needs to be on ever beer snob’s bucket list. Of course, the brewery offers lots of delectable brews worth tasting. Some of my favorites? 1123 IPA  I love a good, strong IPA. This hoppy brew is tropical... Read More

Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

April 13th, 2016

I walked into Absolute Vinyl in East Boulder to scope out what was new. Basil was working behind the counter and we started talking.. Basil grew up here in Boulder but ended up living in Miami for a bunch of years working at Spec’s Music. He moved back to Boulder in 1989 after coming for vacation. He says “I’m not sure why I stayed, but here I am” I liked Basil. An iconoclast to the core, he wonders what Boulder would be like without the University. He thinks the town would be more interesting. When he moved back from Miami, he wanted to get back in the music business,... Read More

This indie rock band started their career back in 2008 out of Athens, GA and ended up playing at a local show this past Friday and Saturday night. The band is known for their unique country-rock infused sound and high energy shows; those qualities definitely showed this weekend.
