Saturday December 6th at Lone Tree Brewing’s 3rd Anniversary Party

12-6 6

Lone Tree Brewing Company was so kind to invite us out for their 3rd Anniversary Party as they released some very big news. Stacy Turk sat in for co hosting duties today! John Winter and Jason Wiedmaier joined us to talk about some really massive growth plans. We are very excited to see them gain an additional 3,600 square feet, a fully automatic Cask canning line, a new 20 barrel brewhouse and a fourth can which will be Hoptree Double IPA. The canning line is in, the brewhouse is on the way, and the Hoptree cans should be ready to roll by summer. All this allowing Lone Tree to triple their production. This is really great news. They also say they are toying with some sour beers that can be kept away from their brew system in their new space behind the taproom. Cheers for a big 2015 coming up for Lone Tree Brewing Company! Guests included owners John and Jason Winter, brewers Josh West and Jerry Siote. We also talked to Tap Room Manager Amber Davis-Sato and Sales Manager Bridgette Geiger.

In the second hour we led off with Kalani Neeland and Columbine Label Company‘s Bernadette Ortiz. Kalani’s artwork was chosen as the winner for our Third Anniversary Beer Label Contest. We brewed a single hopped Amarillo IPA at Strange Craft Beer Company and only bottled 99 of these! Bernadette and the gang at Columbine Label did the labels for us and awarded Kalani a 500 dollar gift certificate! We had some awesome entries and it was hard to choose just one! Here is her story on the label she created:

Many people, when hearing the name “99 Bottles”, will automatically finish the rest of the verse in their head. “Take one down, pass it around!” The name emphasizes good times with friends, sharing, camaraderie, and, of course, a nearly never-ending supply of beer. I wanted to capture this moment of joy, glimpsing a rowdy and good-natured toast between a bunch of friends (or even strangers!) in the beer cellar, with plenty of fun left to go. They are all drinking the very beer that you are. Around this scene is a bountiful hop vine, highlighting the strongest flavor in the beer. The bountiful, exuberant theme is extra pertinent for an IPA, whose popularity in America in recent years has skyrocketed as beer lovers everywhere savor the strong, crisp, hoppiness in what has become a go-to staple among friends in craft breweries across the country.  The work is a freehand ink drawing, colored digitally.  Incidentally, there are exactly 98 bottles in the picture. Can you find the 99th? It’s in your hand!
Can’t thank Kalani, Strange, and Columbine Label enough! Also in hour three we did Brew News You Can Use and talked to brewers Jason Wiedemaier and Josh West as well as closed things out with John Winter! Great times were had this Saturday so we hope to see you there again when we return June 21st!
