New Belgium Brewing’s The Hemperor HPA & the Movement for Hemp Beer

Happy 420 Day, everyone! While we aren’t out partaking in any 420 Day festivities personally, we thought today seemed like an appropriate day to write about the latest release from New Belgium Brewing Company: The Hemperor HPA. The beer actually hit the market a bit earlier this month, but something about today made it seem extra relevant. Let’s take a look at this new release and the challenges craft breweries face when trying to make […]

New Belgium Collaborates With Old Belgium for Lips Of Faith 2016

This year New Belgium Brewing is celebrating their 25th anniversary. Can you even believe that? We’re pretty sure there is a joke in there about still calling them “New” Belgium after all these years. Clearly they’re one of the old timers in the craft beer scene. Still, we respect New Belgium Brewing too much to take this accomplishment lightly. After all, a hefty portion of today’s craft breweries weren’t even a dream 25 years ago. Many […]

New Belgium Slow Ride IPA

Starting 2015 Slowly, with Slow Ride Session IPA

We’re nearly two weeks into 2015 and this is our first post of the year.  What gives? We just needed just a little break after all the craziness of the holidays and the busy schedules that accompany year-end. We’ve used the last few weeks to recharge and regroup, and now we’re ready to bring you all the news in brews for another year!  Don’t think for a moment that during this brief absence we turned […]

Catching Up Over Beers

Holy crap, it’s been almost three months since we’ve had a serious post.  How does that happen?  It seems like the last few months of the year are just a crazy time for us.  I know that I’m a big part of the problem, given that I’m the designated writer and my work tends to get super crazy-stressful between October and January.  Yep, blame it on work, or the holidays, or social obligations or whatever […]

Stoney’s Brew Crew featuring New Belgium Brewing

Stoney’s Bar & Grill is a favorite downtown hangout of ours.   Not only is it within easy walking distance from both of our offices, but the food is good, the beers are big (and 2×1 during happy hour) and the decor is Colorado at its best.   Plus, they’re responsible, being big on recycling and sustainability.   What’s not to love?   Jeff and I are there all the time for lunch, a quick bite to eat after […]

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 […]

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 […]

Fort Collins Part 1: New Belgium, Baby!

The plans for this weekend started small enough. We registered for the G’Knight Ride, a 10-mile ride around Longmont sponsored by Oskar Blues Brewing. Combining our love of biking with our love of beer seemed like a great time. As ride day approached, we decided it might be fun to make a weekend of our trip to northern Colorado. From there, things quickly snowballed to a full-fledged brewery exploration trip. For our first stop, we […]
