ABV: 6.3%

This is a great beer, and not just because I’m a Star Wars fan.

The creation of this beer was one of those happy accidents. When brewer Ryan Parker was home brewing, before Someplace Else Brewery even started, he made a wee mistake and diverged from the recipe. Read More

Most breweries I’ve visited keep some sort of “Idea List” hanging around for different beer ideas and flavor combinations. Sometimes these lists are left exclusively to the employees of the brewery and sometimes they welcome ideas from their customers. In this particular instance, Chris Hill, the founder of Odyssey Beerwerks spent some vacation time in the British Virgin Islands drinking almost exclusively passion fruit – which leads us to our profile of a particular selection on their idea list.

Odyssey Beerwerks | Oh Snap!

January 3, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

ABV: 6.4% | IBU: 20

The end of the year brings holidays, reflections about the year behind us, plans for the year ahead and some of the best seasonal brews around. In the northern hemisphere, this coincides with winter, darker days, colder temperatures and snow (usually). Lights go up on houses, relatives come down to visit and there’s little doubt you’ll make it to at least one brewery to while away the hours in avoidance of going to the mall to pick up that one last gift for the second uncle of your mom’s cousin thrice removed. Similar smells of cinnamon, pine trees and allspice waft out of stores and restaurants and even your neighborhood brewery.

Ultimate 6er | Mountain Town Beers

December 8, 2016 | Avg. Reading Time: 3 min

I’m one of those people who has always felt at home in mountains. Some people feel at home in the water, some in the city, some on the farm. For me, I feel more at ease and a bit of nostalgia even if I’m in mountains I’ve never visited before. In the summer, I like to hike and backpack and in the winter I snowboard – in any season, a refreshing beer is a great way to cap off an adventurous day! Luckily, here in Colorado it seems that every small town has it’s own brewery or at least a taphouse to find some delicious drafts.

If you follow the trail long enough, you’ll eventually hit new terrain. This is just as true for owners Kaylee and Josh Robbins as it is for the hiking trails and pump tracks near this brand new brewery – New Terrain Brewing Company – located on the north east edge of Golden, Colorado.

Brewery Showcase | Kokopelli Beer Company

July 7, 2016 | Avg. Reading Time: 3 min

Kokopelli is the Hopi god of agriculture and fertility —  a perfect deity for a new brew pub who needs plenty of grains for both their beer and their pizza. Christine Wares is the owner of Kokopelli Beer Company —  the first solely woman-owned brewery in Colorado (and only the 7th in the country!) which opened in Westminster in January 2014. Read More

Kokopelli Beer Company | Hop Slugger IPA

May 24, 2016 | Avg. Reading Time: 1 min

ABV: 6.8% | IBU: 70

Baseball and beer — two of America’s favorite pastimes, amirite?

Rick and Christine, head brewer and owner of Kokopelli Beer Company, respectively, started brewing Hop Slugger way back in their home brewing days — when the idea of opening a brewery was just that: an idea. However, they’ve continued to brew this same recipe over the years because it’s always been such a hit with their friends, family, and now customers. The Hop Slugger IPA has won two gold medals at state-wide competitions… it’s easy to see why this beer is such a home run.
