They also are kicking off a Tuesday Chili Beer release on every Tuesday starting August 5th. They will be taking one of their normal brews and adding a certain kind of pepper. These will vary each week and they will also have available the regular beer so you can do a side by side. Breckenridge Brewery’s Todd Thibault jumped on to talk about the Breckenridge Summer Beer Fest and the next rounds of beers coming out. Think Autumn Ale already! We then were joined by Joanne Knipmeyer who is helping organize the 1st Annual Craft Distiller’s festival at the Boulder County Fair on Saturday August 9th. They’ll have over 10 different distilleries on hand for the first county fair in the nation with an all distillers event. You can save 35 bucks now by going to HERE to get tickets for two. They are normally 40 dollars per entry. Or go to Boulder County Fair’s Website for more info. In hour two we led off with Kyle Hollingsworth of String Cheese Incident and the Kyle Hollingsworth Band to talk about his Kyle’s Brew Fest also taking place August 9th at Boulder Liquor Mart in Boulder. He has some really cool breweries lined up and will be playing a special set with some very special guests. Tickets and info can be found HERE. Turk will be here pouring some Epic Brewing Escape to Colorado Firkins that Kyle infused with Citra and Chinook Whole Leaf Hops as well as some Blue Spruce tips. Gonna be a fun event as always.
