It’s Friday, and we’re counting down the hours until our work week comes to an end. We’re big fans of celebrating the end of the week with a Friday happy hour, where we can raise a few pints to toast the start of the weekend. If not for the pandemic we would already be making plans for where to grab a drink tonight. Most likely it would be a short conversation, and we’d quickly agree […]

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.

If you’ve ever driven west on Interstate 70 from Denver to Evergreen, you’ve certainly seen the sign for El Rancho. We’ve certainly driven past it dozens of times.

El Rancho is a destination; a part of Colorado […]
