We have a great new sponsor in High Plains Tap House and we were super stoked when they asked us to come out and hang for their 1 year anniversary party. The kindest receptions we’ve ever had as you will see below! Stacy Turk sat in today and co hosted. Guests included Nate and Laura Fleming who own and operate High Plains, Joel Scally from Odyssey Beerwerks , Mike Cugini and Ben Christianson from Rockyard American Grill and Brewery and Zack Christofferson and Brian Blainey from Chain Reaction Brewing. We HIGHLY suggest you come out and see these folks when you get a chance in Littleton at Wadsworth and Chatfield. A nice wide variety of craft beers from around the world, a delightful food menu, an 80 inch TV and some of the nicest folks you will meet! Get down and say hello!

Saturday November 22nd 2014 with the Blue Spruce Brewing and Brewery Rickoli Gangs

11-22 411-22 5

Turk hosted alone in studio today as he has been quite forgetful lately and went to work without securing a co host. But no worries as we had some great guests come in to hang out. In Hour One we had in Rick and Tim Kane from Blue Spruce Brewing Company in Centennial at Colorado Blvd and County Line Rd. Rick and Tim are a father son team who along with mom Theresa run a very cool brewery and Mazatlan Style kitchen to boot. We talked about a collaboration beer they did with seven other C-470 area breweries that will be tapped at all the locations on December 5th. It’s called Bock C-470. We also sampled some fine fall brews they are rocking right now. In Hour Two we sat down with Rick and Jaqua Abitbol as well as Todd Williamson from Brewery Rickoli in Wheatridge at 43rd and Wadsworth. We talked about his hook up with Sam Adam’s Brewing the American Dream program, making gluten-free beers and about his beers which have some pretty darn cool names. Had a really great time in studio with these guys and gal so very thankful they came in. Support your local Centennial and Wheatridge brewery folks!

Saturday November 29th 2014 Chain Reaction Brewing for the Despondents vs Stacy Turk Beer

11-29 2

Yep, it finally came down to this one! Stacy and John Turk have been homebrewing for a handful of years so when Zack Christofferson from Chain Reaction Brewing approached them both to do separate beers professionally at Chain Reaction, we had to make a big deal out of it. So we though it might be cool to have Stacy take on the Beer Despondents Todd Thibault, Mike Nelson and Turk. Stacy and the Chain Reax crew made a Caramel Apple Brown while the Despondents went with a Chocolate Cream Porter. We had a contest to see what beer was better as we tapped it today. The winner was decided by a judging panel made up of Brewtally Insane‘s Mark Robinson, The Thirsty German Nicol Winkler, author and beer journalist Emily Hutto and Nate Fleming from High Plains Tap House. One dollar for each sale went to their respective charities. Stacy went with The Gathering Place and the Despondents went with Life Is Better RescueThe losing beer makers have to match the totals for sale of that beer. So it came down to it with Nate and Nicol voting for the Stacy and Mark and Emily voting for the Despondents. The folks on hand had to split the votes and did so favoring Stacy’s Caramel Apple Brown. During the show we had on Tim Myers from Strange Craft Beer Company, Thibault, Nelson, Stacy, Zack and Chad Christofferson, Klaus Schiefelbbin and the entire judging panel. What a very fun event and we WILL do this again. BIG up thanks to the Christofferson family and the Chain Reax crew for hosting us. This was a very good time.
