‘Sup, Oskar Blues? As we welcomed in a new year and kicked off a new decade, we decided to put some thought into where we wanted to lift our first pints of 2020.

Even in a state with countless incredible cities and towns, Pagosa Springs, Colorado is a special place. It’s nestled in the heart of the San Juan Mountain range, surrounded by national forest land, and home to the world’s deepest geothermal hot spring aquifer.

Technically speaking, Wild Blue Yonder Brewing Company is the youngest of our five Castle Rock craft breweries. But while they’ve been open for business only 4 months, the story behind this brewery is at least 5 years old. And while it’s taken years for the family behind Wild Blue Yonder to convert their dream of a brewery to reality, it only goes to proves the adage that good things come to those who wait.
When we met BURLY Brewing Company founder George Goodman in late 2017, he shared with us his dream for the brewery he planned to open in Castle Rock. His brewery would feature a large, comfortable gathering space, filled with natural woods and custom-made decor. There would be a stage for live music inside, a patio for enjoying the scenery outside, and a private room where small groups could gather. His brewhouse would be large enough […]
Castle Rock, Colorado may have more than 62,000 residents, but it’s the biggest little small town you’ll ever visit. Live here for a while and frequent our town restaurants, bars, and breweries, and eventually, you’ll realize you start to recognize all the faces. We didn’t know anyone in Castle Rock when we moved here in 2005. Over the years we’ve made countless friends and acquaintances. It means we (mostly) don’t go out looking as grungy […]

We attended the Red Leg shindig with our buddy and honorary BMT member for the day, Chris. Red Leg Brewing Company […]

Last week was a very good week for WeldWerks Truth be told, the last few years have gone pretty well for WeldWerks Brewing Company. Considering the success and name recognition that this Greeley-based brewery has achieved in just three years, they definitely don’t have anything to complain about. But even by those standards, last week was particularly awesome.
