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.
We broadcasted live from Strange Brewing Company for the culmination of their 3rd Anniversary party and to wrap up American Craft Beer Week. Co owner and head brewer Tim Myers was the guest co host with Turk. We talked about their amazing three years of growth, the wide range of brews they make and the Dr. Strangelove Barleywine which won a bronze medal at last year’s GABF and was just bottled and now on sale in the taproom!
We also talked to Tebo from Breckenridge Brewery who was in Arizona for the AmeriCAN Canned Craft Beer Fest. Renegade Brewing‘s Laura Vande Zande jumped on to discuss the all new Renegade Publik House. Beer Despondent Mike Nelson gave us the update on his beer travels and we were joined by Harry Smith and Lila Mackey who are opening up Black Sky Brewery at 490 Santa Fe in the Arts District. Harry has brewed at Breckenridge the last 12 years and Lila has been with Strange since the beginning.
