Durango, Colorado is a special town and very close to our heart. For the past several years we’ve been one of the many folks who make the trek to Durango every summer. Initially, our trips were all about the beer, but very quickly the visits grew into so much more. Now we visit Durango for the charm of the town itself. We love the buildings filled with history, the incredible beauty, the long list of […]

Winners came from cities throughout the state and included several returning champs plus many first-time winners. And while Colorado received 4 fewer awards than they did at the last World Beer Cup, 28 is an incredible accomplishment considering this year’s competition […]

Springtime in Colorado is anything but boring. One day we’re drinking on the patio in shorts and flip-flops. The next day our patio furniture is covered in snow. Sun, rain, snow, wind… anything goes this time of year. Sometimes spring weather can be just plain ugly. Fortunately, summer is just around the corner and ready to bring with it some sunshine, warm breezes, and plenty of seasonal summer beers. One of last year’s summer brews […]

Let’s take a look at this new release and the challenges craft breweries face when trying to make […]

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.

It took longer than we expected, but we are back! Well, if we’re being honest, we’re back-ish. We have wrapped up most of the things that have kept us so overwhelmed and busy the past few months, which is great. Unfortunately, we still haven’t been anywhere or done anything, so there’s not a lot to share…. yet. That all changes tonight, when we finally get back out there, visit some breweries, and get back to […]
