FATE Brewing and Boulder Sunsets = Awesome

We recently spent a sunny Sunday afternoon in Boulder, hiking and drinking, drinking and hiking.  We wrote about our hike up Bald Mountain and our beers at Twisted Pine in our last post.  Next up was a visit to another Boulder brewery, FATE Brewing Company. Although FATE Brewing is only a short distance from Twisted Pine, the places were like night and day.  Where Twisted Pine was mountain casual, FATE was definitely more modern, in […]

Bald Mountain and Twisted Pine

So if there is one downfall to drinking a lot of good craft beer, it has to be the little extra poundage it can add to your midsection if you’re not careful.  Yep, the good old beer belly.   It’s a never-ending battle to be able to consume lots of yummy craft beers, without causing too much damage on the scale.  This is why when we planned a little brewery excursion to Boulder on Sunday July […]

Renegade Brewing’s 2nd Anniversary

As if attending the Epic Beer Festival wasn’t enough for one weekend, we also popped by on Saturday, June 29th to help celebrate the second anniversary of one of our favorite Denver breweries, Renegade Brewing.  And why not throw a party, because Renegade has a lot to celebrate!  After just two years you can now find three Renegade favorites in cans at many area liquor stores, and you can visit their new location, Renegade Publik […]

Happy Birthday Again Already: Odell Brewing

Since we’d hit Fort Collins, we’d already visited Fort Collins Brewery and New Belgium Brewing.  The next and final stop on our brewery tour was Odell Brewing Company.  By the time we arrived at Odell’s late Saturday afternoon, this place was packed!  Luckily it was a beautiful day, so while a few of our group snagged a table inside, the rest of us grabbed our beers and settled on the patio.  It was cool but […]

Happy Birthday to Me Part Deux @ New Belgium Brewing

Second stop on our Fort Collins birthday weekend tour:  New Belgium Brewing Company, baby!  We were supposed to be here for my birthday last year, but a blizzard kept us away.   We scheduled this tour months ago and thankfully, the weather was perfect this time around.  Score! Our tour guide was wonderful, but sadly though we asked her name a multitude of times, I still can’t remember it.  I think it was Lisa, so we’ll […]

Happy Birthday to Me at Fort Collins Brewery

A few months ago, Jeff and I were headed to Longmont for a bike ride when we snuck in a quick detour to Fort Collins.  Despite being in town just a couple of hours, we were able to make three brewery stops, albeit very quick ones.  We promised that someday we’d be back to spend more time with these great breweries, and maybe we’d even bring our friends.  Well, consider it done!   We decided to […]

TGIF 2013 at BSB

TGIF!  There is probably no Friday as eagerly anticipated as the first Friday after the holiday season.  After all, it was back to work this week.   No more holiday parties or days off.  It’s back to the grind, and even with a short week, Friday couldn’t come fast enough. What better way to celebrate the first Friday of a new year then by trying out a whole new happy hour spot?  Enter, Black Shirt Brewing.  […]

AHA Rally at Oskar Blues

When we heard that there was going to be an AHA Rally at Oskar Blues in Longmont, we wasted no time RSVP’ing!  Last summer I attended the AHA Rally at Wynkoop Brewing, and it was a blast, but Jeff was out-of-town and totally missed out.  This time, we were both going to be there to mingle with other homebrewers, sample some unique brews and visit one of our favorite brewery taprooms, the Tasty Weasel. Clearly, […]

Behind the Scenes at CB and Potts

We’ve visited CB and Potts a lot lately.  After all, we play kickball on Thursday nights near the Highlands Ranch CB and Potts location, and they offered us great beer deals for our post-game celebrations.  I have to say, they’ve really won us over.  Originally we sort of wrote this off as another chain restaurant that brews beer that isn’t half-bad for the suburban masses.   We can admit now, we were too quick to […]

Prost!

In German the word means “cheers” or “bottoms up!’ and is a delivered as a toast to wish good health to one’s drinking companions.   In Denver, Prost now has a second meaning, as a place to visit when you want to enjoy some delicious, authentic German bier.  We joined Prost Brewing for their grand opening celebration on August 23rd and learned a little about this new brewery and what makes them stand out from the […]

If Virginia is for Lovers, then Denver is for Drinkers

This was the kind of week that felt so long, when work ended on Friday we were ready to get drinks in our bellies as quickly as possible!   Wanting a good, cold, craft beer, we decided to find the nearest brewery to our offices in downtown Denver, and ended up at Denver Beer Co. We’ve been to Denver Beer Co a few times prior to launching this blog, so we already know that the place […]
