Nicol Winkler (AKA The Thirsty German) and Daniel Ekker from Argonaut Wine & Liquor filled in while Turk was pouring beers in Asheville NC. In Hour one they talked to special guests from Joyride Brewing Company: owner Dave Bergen and brewer Nathan Lincoln. They are rocking out amazing beers with a real cool taproom at 25th and Sheridan in Edgewater. Great to finally get these guys in. We also chatted with Todd Tebo from Breckenridge Brewery. In hour two owner David Lin and head brewer Marks Lanham from Comrade Brewing Company joined the fray. They have been turning heads with their Superpower IPA. Marks is former head brewer at Grand Teton, Boneyard and Barley Browns and really knows how to work with hops. David comes from Dry Dock Brewing Company. We also had on the line Terry Martin who is a local homebrewer who is helping a local non-profit organize a home brew tasting event in Denver on April 24. Salus World helps with mental health issues in war torn regions, like Malaysia. She’s looking for local homebrewers to donate 2.5 gallons (or so) of up to 2 styles of their beer. Basically, they’ll be pouring their beer for a good cause, helping to raise awareness of the non-profit. The event is in RiNo, at the Posner Center, on April 24. Contact her at this email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Two winners will be selected, a judges choice and a people’s choice. Winners will have the opportunity to win a gift certificate to a local homebrew shop. We also gave you a healthy dose of Brew News You Can Use.
Back to our home-away-from home Arvada Beer Company! Cary and Kelly Floyd co hosted with Turk. This was a jam packed show as usual with several guests. We talked about some new beers Arvada had flowing including a Wine Barrel Aged Schwarzweiss and Dark Lager. They also are kicking off a Tuesday Chili Beer release on every Tuesday starting August 5th. They will be taking one of their normal brews and adding a certain kind of pepper. These will vary each week and they will also have available the regular beer so you can do a side by side. Breckenridge Brewery’s Todd Thibault jumped on to talk about the Breckenridge Summer Beer Fest and the next rounds of beers coming out. Think Autumn Ale already! We then were joined by Joanne Knipmeyer who is helping organize the 1st Annual Craft Distiller’s festival at the Boulder County Fair on Saturday August 9th. They’ll have over 10 different distilleries on hand for the first county fair in the nation with an all distillers event. You can save 35 bucks now by going to HERE to get tickets for two. They are normally 40 dollars per entry. Or go to Boulder County Fair’s Website for more info. In hour two we led off with Kyle Hollingsworth of String Cheese Incident and the Kyle Hollingsworth Band to talk about his Kyle’s Brew Fest also taking place August 9th at Boulder Liquor Mart in Boulder. He has some really cool breweries lined up and will be playing a special set with some very special guests. Tickets and info can be found HERE. Turk will be here pouring some Epic Brewing Escape to Colorado Firkins that Kyle infused with Citra and Chinook Whole Leaf Hops as well as some Blue Spruce tips. Gonna be a fun event as always. Next up was David Lin with Comrade Brewing Company. We sampled his beers (which were great) and talked about their story. Their head brewer marks Lanham has ties to the Alpha Kings Melvin/Thai Me Up Brewing. Another great day at our second home Arvada Beer.
