8-30-2014 Freshcraft 4th Anniversary

Jason, Aaron and Lucas Forgy kind enough to invite Turk and Nicol Winkler (AKA the Thirsty German) out for Freshcraft‘s 4th Anniversary Party! They were breaking out some crazy rare beers for this all while serving up some BBQ Iowa style. Freshcraft is a place where you can not only find a stellar lineup of brews with rare ones popping their head up all the time but a place that is well known for their amazing cuisine. They do beer dinners quarterly that will drop your jaw. Or try a beer cocktail! Lunch specials and happy hour deals galore. We LOVE Freshcraft. Jamie Gulick joined us for a few segments talking about Freshcraft, their food, women in beer, and the new concept the Forgy’s are working on in the Highlands called Block and Larder. Tebo jumped on talking Breckenridge Brewery and Fall beers and events! Arlo Grammatica from Ska breifly joined us to talk new releases and their 19th anniversary party. Wade Norris jumped on to talk about Green Beer Fest and his run for state office. Nicol, Turk and Adam Lenfest also discussed the use of the word “Denver” in a brewery’s name. Denver Beer Co and Denver Pearl Brewing are having a little battle. Thanks to our host Jamie, the Forgy’s and everyone at Freshcraft for the great time!

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!
