Big Beers, Belgians & Barleywines 15th Anniversary Saturday January 10th 2015

 

1-10 6

Sometimes you have to pinch yourself and say your dreaming! Well, this was another one of those times where we found ourselves with our 4th invite to Big Beers in Vail! Yep, Laura Lodge was kind enough to have us back for 3 days of crazy fun. If you’ve never been to Big Beers, Belgians & Barleywines – we suggest you put it on your bucket list. From educational seminars to insanely thought out beer dinners to a grand tasting that is TRULY grand. Big Beers has it all! Throw in the Vail Casade for lodging and the beauty of Vail Valley and you get blown away. Laura and Bill Lodge took great care again and invited us to the Epic/Sam Adams Beer Dinner. We also did Beer Yoga, skied, sat in the bar and met countless beer heroes. It gets better every year! We just wish we were able to take more and better photos.

Thibault and Stacy sat in for the show and we talked to a ton of people. In hour caught up with New Belgium Brewing‘s Brewmaster Peter Bouckaert and Sensory Specialist Lauren Salazar, John Carlson of the Colorado Brewers Guild, Dogfish Head‘s Sam Galagione, and Ska Brewing‘s co-owner and founder Dave Thibodeau.

In hour two we led off with Boston Beer Company Brewmaster Jennifer Glanville. We then caught up with Renegade Brewing‘s Laura Vande Zande, Caution Brewing‘s Danny and Betty Wang and Epic Brewing‘s head brewer Jordan Schupbach.

Saturday November 1 2014 Colorado Keg House

11-1 1

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.
