The PorchCast | Ep 52 – 14er Brewing Acquires Former Beryl’s Beer Co. Space

14er Brewing Beryl's Brewing

In a very special edition of the PorchCast, Tristan was joined by Andrew Kaczmarek and Nato Francescato, founders of Denver’s 14er Brewing to announce their acquisition of the former Beryl’s Beer Co. facility. That news, combined with their recent announcement of opening a taproom in the Sunnyside neighborhood of Denver, makes for one massive month for 14er Brewing.

But these two young brewing wunderkinds are no stranger to moving quickly. Still completely self-funded, Kaczmarek and Francescato found instant success after winning a gold medal two years ago at the Great American Beer Festival, just two months after launching 14er.

The two have also opted to take the unorthodox approach of launching with a distribution first model, by contract brewing through Crazy Mountain Brewing. Now Kaczmarek and Francescato face the challenge of launching three brick and mortar locations, while also getting two smaller production facilities on board in the next year. Hear their full story and more on the announcement in Episode 52 of The PorchCast.
