Colorado Craft Beer Show Brewcast: South Denver Beer fest May 3rd 2014

 

5-3 6

Second year in a row we were asked and stoked to be part of the South Denver Beer Fest! About 2 to 3 thousand people were on hand for this two day fest! The folks at Beer Craving really know what they are doing and throw an amazing beer, music and food fest! Make sure you mark your calendar for next year and the first weekend of May!

Our special guest co host was Andrew Ehrnman from Star Bar at 22nd and Larimer! He has been around the beer block a few time, so to speak. We had several guests on the show including our weekly chat with Breckenridge Brewery‘s Todd Thibault. We also talked to Breck’s Matt Eldridge, Falling Rock Tavern‘s Beth Walter, Rockyard‘s Jim Stinson, Great Divide‘s Kate Kingsbery Laura and Nate Fleming from High Plains Tap House, Verboten Brewing‘s Joe Akers, Logan and Lisa from Duke’s Small Batch Smoked Meats and Curtis from 5280 Event Centers. Wish we could have broadcasted for several more hours! Big thanks to Mike, Dan and the whole production crew and the amazing volunteers! See you here next year!

Colorado Craft Beer Show Brewcast 4-6-2013

In Hour One, we were very happy to welcome in Josh and Angie Grenz and Joe and Keri Akers from Verboten Brewing!! They are located at 1550 Taurus Ct in Loveland! Instead of following German Purity laws from the 16th Century, they will throw just about any ingredient into their fine brews. We talked about their story, the beer-scene in Loveland and sampled some of their beers! We also had our weekly chat with Breckenridge Brewery‘s Todd Thibault. He hit on Crazy Mountain having first dibs to buy their current brewhouse at 471 Kalamath and about some events they will be involved in coming up!

In Hour Two we brought in Dan Chacon, Andrew Burton and Daniel Ekker from Argonaut Wine & Liquor. Dan is their beer buyer, Andrew runs the spirits department and Daniel is one of the managers! We talked about shelf space, transparency in what is “craft” beer, Colorado made liquor and much more. We also caught up with Strange Brewing‘s Tim Myers to talk about the on going legal battle they are having with Strange Brew Beer & Wine Making Supplies. We also talked about some new beers he and John are rolling out!
