Denver Pearl Brewing’s Grand Opening

What a weekend! Friday night was all tornadoes and hail, Saturday was beautiful and sunny, and Sunday was just plain lousy. The spring and early summer weather in Colorado is like being on a rollercoaster in the dark – you never know what’s coming next. If we’re being honest this weather pattern is getting a little tiring. We are more than ready to have some boring, predictable weather. We look forward to complaining about the […]

Getting Frisky with Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey

“Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough.”  – Mark Twain We don’t know about too much, but now and then it’s fun to set the beer stein aside and belly up to the bar for something a bit stronger.  Recently we got just the opportunity to do that thanks to Yelp Denver and the folks over at Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey.

It’s Finally Here! GABF & Denver Beer Fest Week

It’s that time of year again: The Great American Beer Festival. This year the BMT crew didn’t buy tickets to attend, but we will be volunteering on the Brew Crew pouring beer all three days. We don’t find out until tonight what brewery we’ll be assigned to, but we aren’t worried. In our four previous years pouring for GABF we’ve never had a bad assignment or a lousy time. It’s the most fun you can […]

Business is booming, and […]

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 […]
