We will also have guests on from Wild Woods Brewery and Echo Brewing Company. Look for some amazing food as well.

Bootstrap Brewing in Niwot, CO (Boulder County) was founded by local residents Leslie and Steve Kaczeus. They both left the high-tech industry to follow their dream and create an adventurous craft brewery dedicated to producing a wide range of high quality ales and lagers.  After nearly five years of planning and research, the couple took a leap of faith and bought equipment to put into storage while they looked for the perfect space. The brewery opened its doors on June 20th 2012 claiming solstice as a birthday and anniversary. Steve who is a Mechanical Engineer and Program Manager by training, was an avid home brewer for over 20 years and graduated from the American Brewer’s Guild in the summer of 2011.  Leslie’s background is in marketing. In the short time since opening, they have laid down a set of well-received beers and have begun to brew fantastic classic beers and exciting seasonals including bold fruit and spice infused beer. Their goal is simple –  to make really great beer and have a lot of fun.

Big fun at Oskar Blues‘ Tasty Weasel Taproom on Saturday for their 4th Anniversary Party! In Hour One we threw out Brew News You Can Use which included an unbelievable story on theft of rare beers from Avery Brewing. We also talked to Head Weaselette at the Tasty Weasel Shannon McGrath about the day’s festivities. We checked in with Todd Thibault from Breckenridge Brewery as he is in Arizona for the next 10 days for AZ Beer Week. We closed out the hour with former Tasty Weasel Tap Room Manager Garret Frase. He is taking over the CHUBurger just down the road from the brewery on Ken Pratt. They open in 5 weeks and he is currently taking applications for employment.  garret@oskarblues.com
