Colorado Craft Beer Show Brewcast: Saturday August 2nd 2014

 

8-2 2

We were in studio for the show today for the first time in a long time! In hour one we had the Jellyman Kjell Wygant and The Fez Greg Fetzer from Rockyard American Grill and Brewery. We talked about their new Mix 12 pack which is now out in the market as well as sampled their Dog House Red which is a barrel-aged and bretted Red Ale. Very tasty and get some while you can. We also talked about their upcoming festival on August 23rd Rendezvous at the Rock. Lots of breweries and a traveling trophy will be awarded. We also caught up with Tebo from Breckenridge Brewery who is smack dab in the middle of a Mountain Tour. In hour two Laura and Nate Fleming from High Plains Tap House jumped in with us to talk about what they are doing there on the Northeast corner of Wadsworth and Chatfield in Littleton. You need to get in and visit this beer lovers paradise in the south metro! We also did Mobile canning’s Brew News You Can Use and discussed how to tell a brewer or brewery that their beers actually need work. Is it detrimental to the craft movement if we always say that beer is “good”?
