Live Music and Beer: A Perfect Pairing

June 9th, 2017

Hiking and beer. Pilates and beer. Macaroni and cheese and beer. These are some of my favorite beer pairings this time of year (though mac and cheese with beer is more of a year-round delight). But there is one more pairing that I just can’t get enough of when the patios are open and corn hole is on the yard. That is live music and beer, particularly a little jazz, folk-rock, and bluegrass. Well, lucky for me and for you, Mountain Sun Pub & Brewery has a live band lined up for every Sunday night this summer as well as Monday nights at their Southern Sun location and Wednesday night open bluegrass... Read More

Fill Your Calendar with Avery Events

May 19th, 2017

Summer is just around the corner even if mother nature threw some cold, wet weather at us this week and it’s shaping up to be a busy season for the folks over at Avery Brewing Company! Starting the summer off right (even if the ground is still wet from the late season snow day yesterday), the Real Peel IPA is being released today. Promising to be a crisp, refreshing twist on the classic IPA, tangerine peels used during the brewing process will add some citrus and zest. Sounds perfect for warm evenings grilling out on the patio! For those of you who are as excited as me about all of the new sour... Read More

Get Outside with Wild Woods Brewery

May 5th, 2017

Warmer temperatures finally brought us a rainstorm instead of snow and that makes me think summer must be right around the corner. And what does summer bring with it? The chance to get outside for long day hikes, rides, climbs, and camping trips. Now, I know that some people are into snowshoeing or cross-country skiing into the mountains and bearing the low temperatures for winter camping trips but I am not one of those people. Summer is my season and I don’t consider a camping trip complete without a small growler of seasonal craft beer to wash down a mediocre freeze-dried meal. Luckily for... Read More

August, Die She Must

September 6th, 2016

She stole the very beauty from the earth. He would try to continue to find it, but on the long drive through the canyon that morning, one that he never felt compelled to rush and instead enjoyed reveling in the less-touched pieces of land beyond the city, he could only speed, passing each car and feeling disgusted by the perfect trails of clouds, trails he would often look at as threads of heaven spun over the earth, feeling today that they looked instead like claw marks made by the hand of his own ache, raked across the face of God. The bright plumage of the Aspen forests and the rivers normally... Read More

August in Boulder

August 12th, 2016

August in Boulder means hot summer temperatures, students coming back to school, and summer events beginning to wind down. In order to make the most of these last few weeks of August, here are a couple things to keep in mind: School is starting up again. All month, the Hill has been a hotbed of college students moving out of their old places and into their new ones. Mattresses and couches and toaster ovens are left on the side of the roads like some kind of post-apocalyptic disaster has struck. Classes start up again at CU Boulder on Monday, August 22nd, so be warned. The week of August 22nd will... Read More

Surviving the Summer Slump

July 5th, 2016

The fireworks have been lit and the watermelon consumed. While the weather is still sizzling and the iced drinks are still in season, the Forth of July reminds us all that summer is fast on its way by. I’ve always found the moment when the last sparkler goes out to be a profoundly bittersweet moment. In my quest for an endless summer, I’ve sought out as many seasonal celebrations as possible. Here are a few of the sunniest. Tube to Work Day Was June’s bike to work day too mundane for you? Do you relish the idea of commute by water? Don your worst suit, grab your tube, and join the... Read More

Goodbye Summer

September 23rd, 2015

Despite the fun seasonal events and vacation travel opportunities, I’m still a Summer-hater. Dealing with excessive sunshine and heat, plus the inability to wear layers, is incredibly frustrating and uncomfortable for me. So I’m super excited that it is officially the first day of Fall—my favorite season—and that the weather is finally beginning to cool. But before I dig out my warm coats, cozy beanies, and knitted scarfs from the depths of my closet, I’d like to give a final farewell to the iced/cold drink season by saluting a couple of my favorite Summertime brews and caffeine-fix stops... Read More

July 14th, 2015

Have you ever looked at the Hill and thought “I would totally ride a giant slip and slide down that.” Well you are’t the only one. Is 1000 feet going to be long enough for you?

Getting Set for BolderBoulder

May 6th, 2014

There’s a reason that every year, over 50,000 people flock to Boulder, Colorado to run 6.2 miles. It might have something to do with the fact that Boulder is an awesome city or maybe some folks enjoy a bit of fitness every once in a while… But mostly I think it’s because they know that the BolderBoulder 10k is the most fun you’ll have while running all year long! To some of you reading, 6.2 sounds like a daunting number. Others might find the prospect of running non-stop uphills and around bends totally boring; but trust me–it’s not as intimidating as it sounds and it’s far from... Read More
