Malty, Hoppy-Scented Memories of the Fests That Were

It seems like just yesterday we just updated our blog with a flurry of posts, only to fall behind once again.  It’s really not our fault.  It’s summertime, and while the livin’ is easy, the blogging is sort of a pain in the ass.  When the weather is warm and the drinks are cold, it’s easy to lose focus.   It’s difficult to sit in front of the computer when the sunshine and warm breezes […]

A Tale of Two Beer Festivals

There is no lack of beer festivals in Colorado during the summer, that’s a fact. It a downright beerapalooza all summer long! There are beer festivals galore – big and small, indoor and outdoor, for profit and for a purpose. In seven days we managed to hit two separate beer festivals: the Breckenridge Summer Beer Festival in on Saturday, July 13, and the Hops for Habitat Brewfest on Friday, July 19. How did they stack […]

Challenge Accepted, Again

Challenge Nation was back in Denver this past Saturday, and once again we proved to be up for the challenge! We reunited with our 2012 Denver Challenge Nation team, Becky and Scott and called ourselves The Lost Shakers of Salt. This year, we came in number one… hundred and twenty-one. Yep, 121. Maybe we didn’t crack the top ten, or even the top 100, but we had a great time! Plus we finished all 12 […]

Beads, Barrels, and lots of Beer!

Holy Frijoles, have we been busy with some fun local beer events! Beer season is not even in full gear yet, and it seems every weekend there are lots of great activities to choose from. We’ve had so much fun that we have, once again, fallen behind in updating our BMT friends about all of our shenanigans. Yep, it’s a pitfall of being on the BMT crew; sometimes you’re enjoying yourself too much to stop […]

Goodbye Summer, Hello Oktoberfest!

Summer is coming to an end, my friends. The days of backyard barbecues, sunny patios and short sleeves will soon be behind us, replaced by shorter days, cooler evenings, and falling leaves. Since we both grew up in warmer climates (Arizona for Jeff, Florida for me) it’s always a little sad to see summertime end. The thought of packing up my shorts and flip-flops can be downright depressing. But then it happens, we see the […]

Breckenridge Summer Beer Festival

The big day was finally here! Like kids waiting for Christmas, we had been planning our Breckenridge trip for weeks to attend the Breckenridge Summer Beer Festival. Sure there are other, bigger beer festivals in town – but this one is still one of our favorites and in our opinion, one of the best in Colorado. They offer beautiful mountain views, a cozy lakeside location at Main Street Station, and lets face it, some great […]

The Summit of Bluegrass and Brews on Lake Dillon

This weekend was a hot one in Denver. Temperatures were expected to peak 100° F, so we were looking for any way to keep cool. Lucky for us, Saturday afternoon the 2012 Summit of Bluegrass and Brews was taking place in Dillon, Colorado.  Dillon is located in the Rocky Mountains where it’s considerably cooler, and this particular event was right along the beautiful shores of Lake Dillon. Obviously, there was no reason for us to […]
