Saturday October 25th 2014 Arvada Beer Company 3 Year Anniversary
Cary and Kelly Floyd co hosted with Turk from Arvada Beer Company as we wrap up October and 3 years of beers! They had some barrel aged and new malty high ABV monsters on tap. Can’t thank these folks enough for their support through the years. We also did Brew News You Can Use for the week. Guests included Mason Embree from Dad & Dude’s Breweria in Aurora and Arvada Beer’s biggest fan Clint White. Dad & Dude’s is now canning three different brews for your drinking pleasure. They also have their 3rd year anniversary coming up next week.
Saturday November 1 2014 Colorado Keg House
Man were we lucky to broadcast from The Colorado Keg House smack dab in the middle of a Widespread Panic run at First Bank Center. Todd Thibault from Breckenridge Brewery made the trip up to co host. We spent hour one with Jerod Hutchison who along with Jason Wiley own and operate the CO Keg House. They are at 8001 Arista Place in Broomfield just a few yards away from the First Bank Center. They carry 75 taps of nuthin’ but Colorado beers and they really go out of their way to support the smaller guys in the state. The tap list is always changing so you never know what you’ll get but if you can’t find something in the 75 taps, there may be no help for you. We also talked to Michael Memsic and Drew Owen from Sanitas Brewing in Boulder. They are doing some very cool stuff and putting some of them in cans. Again big thanks to the CO Keg House crew. You need to step in and see what they have to offer to the ever growing craft beer scene.
Saturday November 8 2014
Tebo from Breckenridge Brewery and Turk hosted in studio today and talked about beer and chocolate and food pairing. In hour one we had in chocolatier Sarah Amorese from Piece, Love & Chocolate and Dr. Nicole Garneau who is the Director of the Genetics of Taste Lab at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. They have a big event coming up on December 10th at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science that incorporates beer and chocolate pairings and some very cool science about how it works. Sarah is also throwing an event at West Flanders Brewing in Aurora on November 13th. Tickets to both events can be found HERE. This was very educational and cool at the same time! In hour two, Mike Long from Chef N Brew Festival and Culinary Director at Argyll Whiskey Beer John Broening jumped in to talk about the 3rd year of Chef N Brew which is coming up on Thursday November 20th at the Exdo Events Center in RiNo. It’s really amazing to hear chefs talk about how they come up with dishes to pair with craft beer. We closed the show with Brew News You Can Use.
A very jam packed in studio show!
