Good Times at the G’Knight Ride

Beer and bikes are two of our favorite things, so we were excited to be participating in the 2nd Annual G’Knight Ride in Longmont. Festivities started at Prospect Park in Longmont, and the entire event was sponsored by Oskar Blues Brewing Company and presented by Bicycle Longmont.

Fort Collins Part 3: Odell Brewing Company

If you are looking for great Colorado craft beer, Fort Collins has more than enough great spots to get your fix. During our day in Fort Collins we had already visited New Belgium Brewing and Fort Collins Brewery. Last but not least, we made a stop at Odell Brewing Company.

Fort Collins Part 2: Fort Collins Brewery

There’s more to Fort Collins beer than just New Belgium Brewing. That’s not to say we don’t love New Belgium, clearly, we do. But there’s plenty of other great breweries in town that are worth a visit. We were lucky enough to visit two more great craft breweries while in Fort Collins.

Fort Collins Part 1: New Belgium, Baby!

The plans for this weekend started small enough. We registered for the G’Knight Ride, a 10-mile ride around Longmont sponsored by Oskar Blues Brewing. Combining our love of biking with our love of beer seemed like a great time. As ride day approached, we decided it might be fun to make a weekend of our trip to northern Colorado. From there, things quickly snowballed to a full-fledged brewery exploration trip. For our first stop, we […]

Drinking on School Nights: Lone Tree Brewing & Rockyard Brewing

This week we broke one of our self-imposed rules and went out for a few beers during the week. Usually, we need weekdays days to recover from our brewery stops on weekends, but not this week. We managed to visit two of our tried and true local breweries for some school night drinking this week. We stopped by Lone Tree Brewing Company and Rockyard Brewing Company.

Oops, We Did it Again (at Dry Docks)

We had to visit the Brew Hut this past Sunday for some homebrewing supplies. We decided to go to Dry Dock Brewing for one beer. Just one. Jeff had to try their Hop Abomination, after all. It would be silly to go all that way and not have a pint. In solidarity, I had a Breakwater Pale Ale. We would each have one, and then we would be on our way home to finish our Sunday […]

Our Love / Hate Relationship With Lowry Beer Garden

Lowry Beer Garden opened last week, and we couldn’t wait to get there to check it out! Early reviews and teaser photos had us really excited about this place. Who doesn’t love a beer garden, right? And why should we have to wait till Oktoberfest to visit one? We decided to visit for Happy Hour with our friends Jessica, Shawn and the White Rascal himself (Scott) to check the place out.

Kicking Off Memorial Day Weekend at Vine Street

For Memorial Day weekend, we were headed up to the mountains to spend time with family, and figured a brewery was not likely going to be part of the plans.  What’s a beer lover to do?  It seemed obvious that we had to make at least one brewery stop on the way out-of-town, but where to go?  Well, we needed lunch, and we needed someplace close to our downtown Denver offices so we could quickly […]

Rainy Days and Renegades

Here’s a fun fact about Jeff and me: We live 33 miles outside of Denver, but we both work downtown. With Denver traffic this is not ideal, to say the least. The only nice part is that we work within a few blocks of one another, so although the commute is horrible, at least we get to spend time together. I guess it’s true: misery really does love company. I only bring up this fact […]

Colorado Springs Beer Tour, Part 3: Visiting Trinity Brewing Company

After a whirlwind tour of the Colorado Springs brewery scene, we woke up Sunday with only one thing on our mind: breakfast! Lucky for us we found a cute (and pretty popular) local place for some grub, the King’s Chef Diner. If you’re in Colorado Springs for breakfast, I highly recommend this place. Just be warned: their portions are HUGE. Jeff ordered the ½ breakfast burrito, and I ordered a ¼ size of their special […]
