8-23-2014 Great Central City Beer Fest
Boulder Beer’s Chicken Dan and Turk made beer radio magic from one of the coolest beer fests in the state! The Great Central City Beer Festival. This was year three of the event and it keeps getting bigger and better. Over 25 breweries on hand in historic Central City. There’s a lot more than just beer too. Great food, a cemetary crawl, historic gun battle re enactments, and much more. Want to thank the Central City Business Admin for having us out again! Guests included Joe Behm of the Central City Business Admin, Marty Jones, Arvada Beer Co‘s Cary Floyd, Dillon Dam Brewery head brewer Mike Bennett, Breckenridge Brewery‘s Todd Thibault, Barrels & Bottles Brewery’s Abby George, Dave Thomas from Dostal Alley Brewing and former Central City Mayor Buddy Schmaltz.
8-30-2014 Freshcraft 4th Anniversary
Jason, Aaron and Lucas Forgy kind enough to invite Turk and Nicol Winkler (AKA the Thirsty German) out for Freshcraft‘s 4th Anniversary Party! They were breaking out some crazy rare beers for this all while serving up some BBQ Iowa style. Freshcraft is a place where you can not only find a stellar lineup of brews with rare ones popping their head up all the time but a place that is well known for their amazing cuisine. They do beer dinners quarterly that will drop your jaw. Or try a beer cocktail! Lunch specials and happy hour deals galore. We LOVE Freshcraft. Jamie Gulick joined us for a few segments talking about Freshcraft, their food, women in beer, and the new concept the Forgy’s are working on in the Highlands called Block and Larder. Tebo jumped on talking Breckenridge Brewery and Fall beers and events! Arlo Grammatica from Ska breifly joined us to talk new releases and their 19th anniversary party. Wade Norris jumped on to talk about Green Beer Fest and his run for state office. Nicol, Turk and Adam Lenfest also discussed the use of the word “Denver” in a brewery’s name. Denver Beer Co and Denver Pearl Brewing are having a little battle. Thanks to our host Jamie, the Forgy’s and everyone at Freshcraft for the great time!
9-6-2014 Studio with Renegade’s Laura Vande Zande with guests from Living the Dream and Kokopelli
Renegade Brewing‘s Laura Vande Zande joined Turk to co host the show in studio today. She’s putting on a big show called Offensively Delicious during GABF week that mixes comedy and beer. They will have national and local comedians plus some rookie brewery workers taking their shot at stand up. In hour one we talked with Jason Bell the brewmaster at Living the Dream Brewing which just opened in Highlands Ranch at Santa Fe and Highlands Ranch Parkway. Him and his partners are living the dream while making great beers! We also chatted with Tebo from Breckenridge Brewery. He’s been on a wild Mountain Tour! In Hour two the Kokopelli Beer Company gang jumped in! We had founder and owner Christine Wares and Katie Schroepfer in studio. Also want to thank Danica Smith for bringing Kokopelli Beer all the way down from Westminster! They have a really cool story and make some really great and diverse beers! We also did Mobile Canning’s Brew News You Can Use.
PODCASTS COMING… Technical Difficulties
No Podcasts from 9-13 or 9-20. We were not on the air due to Turk’s dad’s passing and a pre empting for CU Football
9-27-2014 Arvada Beer Company
Felt good to be back at our home away form home Arvada Beer Company as Cary and Kelly Floyd sat in the whole show with Turk! In hour one we talked about GABF events and happenings, new beers at Arvada Beer, their 3rd anniversary party coming up October 25th which we will broadcast from and a lot more. Tebo also jumped in and almost seemed to be in a jolly spirit even though GABF is about to fall on top of him! In hour two Marty Jones came on to talk about his new venture the Brew Night Show which should take place once every two months at Lannie’s Clocktower Cabaret. It’s a variety show with music, comedy and beer banter. He will also feature some very cool guests including Charlie Papazian who will be at the premier during GABF on Wednesday. Information is HERE! He also made a very hard-hitting political to air for his show and we have a preview for you! Follow this LINK. We closed out with Brew News You Can Use and a conversation with Columbine Label Company’s Bernadette Ortiz who is such an awesome sponsor and provided us with some GABF ticket giveaways. We’ll see you back at Arvada Beer on October 25th.
