Colorado Craft Beer Show Brewcast: Saturday April 4th 2015 World of Beer and Declaration Brewing
Turk hosted the show with Ricardo Cabrera who is a managing partner and marketing guro for the local World of Beer locations in Colorado. They currently have three stores in Cherry Creek, Belmar and Lodo. They are also gearing up to open one in Boulder on the Pearl Street Mall. We talked about their really phenomenal beer program that is truly unique at each location. We think these guys get an unfair shake being called too “chainy” when they are helping support many local breweries and involved heavily in the community. In hour one we also talked to Breckenridge Brewery‘s Todd Thibault about their brand new IPA called Breck IPA. In hour two we jumped in with Mike Bladford and Dr. Greg Schlichting from Declaration Brewing who opened in February at 2030 S. Cherokee St. in Denver. They are already rocking 16 beers on tap. They brought in several of these and are knocking it out of the park already. They have a pretty sweet lab set up too that they not only use for themselves, but also allow other breweries to use for qualitative analysis. These are good folks who have a stunning tap room and a lot of room to grow and distribute. We also did some Brew News You Can Use.
