The PorchCast | Ep 26 Bierstadt Lagerhaus
Over 5,200 miles away, two plus weeks of celebration featuring streets lined with jubilant semi-cognizant attendees sporting their dirndls and lederhosen prost-ing to the autumn festival of beer that is Oktoberfest. Meanwhile back in Denver, Colorado, you can now discover a slice of Munich in the form of liter steins and proper slow pour pilsner glasses that speak to the detail and authenticity of Bierstadt Lagerhaus.
Bill Eye and Ashleigh Carter, formerly of Prost Brewing and Dry Dock Brewing before that have found their true passion project and they aren’t sparing any expense. With a 30 some barrel brewhouse shipped over from Germany, a rich brewing tradition between the Eye and Carter at the helm, and a dedication to authentic German-style lagers, their beers are match up against the best you’ll find across the globe.
We caught up with Bill and Ashleigh a little over a month and a half after opening to discuss their storied brewing past, how innovative their traditional style beers are in a sea of sours, IPAs and barrel-aged boundary pushing extremities, as well as this weekend’s RiNo Oktoberfest taking place on their front porch, right outside Rackhouse Pub / CSquared Ciders / Bierstadt Lagerhaus, Saturday, September 24.
