St. Paddy’s Day is for Beer Drinking

March 17th, 2017

The day has finally arrived! The day that we beer drinkers look forward to all year long. The day that everyone can come together in a sea of green and sing odes to the old country (even if they have only seen pictures of the Cliffs of Moher). This St. Patrick’s Day, don your most festive Irish green getup and, after finishing your annual green Coors Light, check out one of the many events happening today featuring beers from local breweries all over Boulder. To give us an idea of where to start, I looked in a few of them. To start the evening off, head over the Avery Brewing for their St. Paddy’s... Read More

Asher Advocates Sustainability in Boulder Brewing Community

March 3rd, 2017

Just down the street from the larger Avery Brewing Company sits Asher Brewing Company, a company that focuses not only on making excellent craft beer but on implementing a model of sustainability that reflects the brewery’s environmentally friendly mission. This microbrewery uses 100% wind power to create their organic certified beers using locally sourced ingredients when possible. When I visited just this past week, the overhead lights were off since there was plenty sunshine coming through the floor to ceiling windows, helping keep the taproom energy efficient. If all of that weren’t enough,... Read More

Infinite Velocity Limited Release

February 10th, 2017

With a name like Infinite Velocity Spirit Hound Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout, it’s easy to understand why this beer was worthy of its very own release party this week. Just this last Thursday Feb. 9th, West Flanders Brewing Co. and Spirit Hound Distilleries released their unique, limited time stout at West Flanders’ brewpub on Pearl Street. The event was even complete with pan-fried frog legs from chef Chris Cunningham and live music by the Thursday Night Pickers. Spirit Hound, the partner that helped bring us this brew, is located just north in Lyons. The owners of the distillery were... Read More

Stout Month is Back!

February 3rd, 2017

When the February weather turns cold and icy, dark beer lovers rejoice. February sees the return of Stout Month at each of the five Mountain Sun locations in Boulder, Denver, and Longmont. This Boulder-born brewery offers a rotating tap of over 25 stouts brewed in house as well as over 25 guest stouts, each day offering a new mix of stouts on tap. For the in-house brews, I found myself most excited about the Addition Imperial Coffee Stout. Coming in at a high 9.5% ABV, I took my time enjoying this heavy, smooth beer. The Nederland roasted coffee used in the brewing process imbues this beverage... Read More

Featuring: Sanitas Brewing Company

January 27th, 2017

There is just something about drinking beer fresh from the tap in the building in which it’s made. This week I visited Sanitas Brewing Co. and enjoyed an evening of that unique something. Let’s start off with what everyone is most excited about: the beer. I confess, I was “that person” this time and tried every beer they currently have on tap. The standouts were the Black IPA and Cinnilla Stout. The profile of the Black IPA sounded somewhat off-putting on paper with fresh pine, grapefruit, roasted malt, and citrus. In practice, though, the combination is excellent. Standard carbonation... Read More

7 Best Year-Round Boulder Beers

January 20th, 2017

Happy Friday, fellow beer enthusiasts! Since I’m new around here, I thought I’d give you all a taste of what my go-to choices are from a few of Boulder’s best microbreweries. When I was conducting research for my undergraduate Anthropology thesis about Colorado craft beer culture, these were some that I discovered early and still stand out in the sea of rotating taps. So, when you’re looking to learn what a particular brewery is all about, you can’t go wrong with one of these classic options! 1.  Avery, White Rascal Don’t let the devilish rascal on the can scare you away because this... 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

Stout Month at The Mountain Sun, or, an Afternoon in Boulder’s Most ‘Boulder’ Brewpub

February 22nd, 2015
Mountain Sun Boulder

I realize, writing an editorial about The Mountain Sun to Boulderites is much like a movie critic extolling the cinematic genius of Dr. Zhivago. I also realize that writing a piece on The Mountain Sun’s Stout Month to Boulderites is much like a music critic venturing to the Monterey Pop Festival, and saying the music was “pretty great.” Let’s face it: The Mountain Sun is a Boulder institution. Their yearly homage to dark and malty beer, Stout Month, has become a tradition for the denizens of Boulder since the celebration began 22 years ago. So, for anyone who has yet ventured... Read More
