Colorado Craft Beer Show Brewcast: Saturday July 5th 2014 at The Brew on Broadway

7-5 1

Paul Webster and the gang at The Brew on Broadway, or affectionately known as the BoB had us on out smack dab in the middle of their three-day one year anniversary bash. Todd Thibault from Breckenridge Brewery was the co host! There were some special beers on tap and he just got his beer engine flowing. This place is great as it serves as a coffee shop and brewery. Heck you can even get a beer at 7:30 am on the weekends here. The brews are great, the atmosphere is top notch and just what downtown Englewood needed.  In hour one we chatted with Paul the whole time getting his story and some of his crazy ideas on making beer. I’m talking about good kind of crazy like taking an IPA and rocking it back and forth at room temp for 6 and a half months to replicate the old school IPA’s that made their journey from England to India. We also talked with Luke Franklin from Upslope about a special beer release in 19.2 oz. cans coming up. Think Brown Ale aged in Leopold barrels! Jeffrey Green from The Very Nice Brewing Company came on to talk about what’s up in Nederland! Kieran Nelson also jumped on from Glendale’s Bruises & Brewfest going on on August 16th at Infinity Park. It involves Beer and Rugby! Sweet! Again big thanks to the Websters and crew at the BoB for making us part of their anniversary celebration.
