In episode 061 of the “Craft Beer is Dead” podcast, Brie and Kreis sit down with April and Doug of À La Cart located in Orlando, Florida. The four dive into their beer origin stories and tips on forming a fantastic company culture, as well as building and maintaining retail/brewery relationships.
In recent years, many breweries have caught cease and desist letters from corporations like fly balls in center field. Cartoon characters Bart Simpson, Cap N Crunch, as well as the restaurant In-N-Out have somehow made it onto trendy IPA cans across America. Instead of taking the easy road and stealing intellectual property, Main & Mill Brewing Co. has decided to combine their love of art, baseball, and beer with charity. A can with a cause. They will be donating 20% of every can sold of their Negro Leagues Celebration Series American Style Pilsner to the featured players’ families, and the Negro League Baseball Museum.
Welcome to the Colorado Beer Beat, a bi-weekly roundup of all of the new can releases around the state. From Denver to Grand Junction and everywhere in between, we have you covered. Be sure to check back on Thursdays (usually!) to find out what’s new in the Colorado beer scene.
Last we spoke, we were approaching a busy holiday weekend. Now, we’re celebrating a little bit differently, because it’s American Craft Beer Week! Since you’re reading this, there’s a good chance that you’re like our team, and love craft beer. Join us in saying cheers to all of the amazing craft brewers, especially the Colorado craft brewers (this is the Colorado Beer Beat after all), that keep the beer releases flowing!
Few things are more satisfying than a well-crafted lager on a warm day. Crisp, clean and cold… it’s better than water. Add a lime, and it’s borderline euphoria.
Denver’s Strange Craft Beer Company celebrates its 12th anniversary this coming weekend with the release of six collaboration beers from 12 breweries. The party starts on Friday, May 20, and continues through Saturday, May 21. In addition to great beer, Strange will have live music, food and custom t-shirts.
This time of year, Colorado’s mountains teeter between spring and summer, and the Mexican Style Dark Lager by Colorado Boy Brewery in Ouray, Colo., perfectly captures that balance. Its dark and robust flavors warm the chilly nights, while the lighter body and lager character brighten the warmer days.
Forget Cold IPAs, Hard Seltzers, and Ready to Drink Cocktails, because as we’ve seen with many other style trends that have come before, they’re likely momentary flashes in the pan. What is the next trend that’s more likely to elevate craft beer? How about Craft Malt? Brewers often call malt the ‘Soul of Beer’ and it’s unmistakably the backbone.
At the onset of the pandemic, the ability to pivot quickly after tasting rooms were closed for on-site consumption led a majority of breweries to focus their attention on packaging beer to-go. It was at that moment that aluminum cans became one of the hottest commodities in the industry.
But just as canning beer became a major relief for breweries who desperately needed a way to get beer in the hands of consumers, it also became a major pain point. Ball Corp, which has long been the dominant supplier of aluminum cans, announced that it would increase minimum orders for a single SKU of printed cans from one truckload to five truck loads. This meant that a brewery that could previously order 200,000 printed cans of a single brand would now be forced to order approximately 1 million cans, essentially eliminating a primary supplier of printed cans for a majority of breweries in the market today.
The Craft Beer Marketing Awards (CBMA) is in its third year of competition. Founded in 2019, the first awards ceremony had to be held virtually in 2020, like pretty much everything else. 2021’s ceremony was a hybrid ceremony, but for 2022, the CBMAS was a fully in-person ceremony (with an added virtual announcement) at the Craft Brewers Conference (CBC) in Minneapolis.
There was a band that released a song in the mid-nineties called Peaches. If you’re lucky enough to remember this catchy song, you’ll remember that they talk about moving to the country to eat a lot of peaches. While you can get peaches in the country, you don’t always have to go there to get them like they want you to believe. Heck, you can even go to Atlanta and drink them in the form of a beer.
The love of Broadway runs deep and being able to see my first Broadway show while out in New York City recently was exciting, to say the least. While having spent a lot of time watching theatre, none of the shows were actually on Broadway. How to pay homage to Six: The Musical? By pairing each woman with a beer thoroughly enjoyed in New York City, of course!

After 16 years of exponential growth, first in the Denver area and later across Colorado, Dry Dock Brewing of Aurora, CO, is sharing the love with its eastern neighbors. Kansas craft beer lovers can now find Dry Dock beer at retailers, restaurants, and bars.
Throughout the years, Dogfish Head has been a brewery about exploring the outer edges of what is possible within the world of craft beer. With one of its newest editions to its ever-evolving lineup, Kernza Pils is here to help restore the planet with every sip!
Portland, Oregon is no stranger to hip craft breweries and hop forward pale ales, but Gigantic Brewing Co. is setting a new standard for classic styles of beer. Sassy Pony Pale Ale has set the bar for a non-adjunct pale ale at a height that even Javier Sotomayor would tremble at.
