If there’s one true constant in the Colorado craft beer scene, it’s that Avery Brewing knows how to throw one helluva beer festival. In its second year of shifting from multiple style-themed festivals such as their Sour Fest and Strong …
As we’ve articulated a few times, GABF week’s multitude of events have lately grown to the point of overshadowing the event itself. And while many of these periphery activities offer a host of rare or limited distribution beers, Pints for Prostates’ Denver Rare Beer Tasting offers one of the most impressive lineups collectively in one place, that you’ll find all weekend.
One of the many reasons the Rare Beer Tasting has been able to attract stellar beer lineups and brewery celebrities like Garret Oliver and Sam Calagione, is that Pints for Prostates has made such a relevant impact.
To most Americans, Kentucky is known primarily for bourbon, basketball, horse racing and fried chicken. However much like the rest of the country, one of the Bluegrass state’s fastest growing commodities is a result of the recent rise of craft beer. In just the past decade alone, brands like Lexington’s Alltech Brewing, Country Boy Brewing, West Sixth Brewery, and Northern Kentucky’s Braxton Brewing have emerged as formidable players in the state, all producing over 14,000 barrels of beer in 2018.
The Avery Brewing Invitational & Anniversary, which now enters its second year, is primed for an even bigger celebration than its debut. Armed with an all-star cast of breweries, and plans to unleash a myriad of vintages, this year’s festival …

One of the world’s most revered Lambic producers has long been elusive to Colorado beer fans, but this week beers from Brasserie de Drie Fonteinen will hit store shelves throughout the Front Range thanks to newly formed wholesaler, Culture Beverage.
While most of craft beer’s largest watershed moments have involved Anheuser-Busch InBev’s (ABI) acquisition of an iconic, previously independent craft brewery, yesterday’s merger between Boston Beer Company and Dogfish Head Brewery marked an equally resonant moment for the industry, that didn’t directly involve its biggest player.
In episode 60 of The PorchCast we met up with Karen Hertz, founder of Holidaily Brewing in Golden, CO, to discuss the opening of their new production facility, which now becomes the country’s largest 100% gluten-free dedicated production facility in the U.S.
In an alternate timeline of the Marvel comics, Thor, the God of Thunder, could have become the God of Craft Beer. Craft beer nerds who’ve also seen Avengers Endgame, might have noticed several cameo appearances by one of craft beer’s fastest rising brands, Athens, GA’s Creature Comforts Brewing, and now we know how that all came to be.
One of the country’s most prolific sour ale producers, Casey Brewing and Blending is about to become a little more accessible. The Colorado-based brewery announced yesterday via social media, that it will be opening up a second tasting room location in downtown Glenwood Springs, just six miles from its current facility.
Over the past decade, there may be no more iconic figure, and beard, that has holistically represented Colorado craft beer, than Steve Kurowski. Today, his tenure is coming to a close after nine years of service, to become Marketing Director for Laws Whiskey House.

In episode 59 of The PorchCast recorded during the Craft Brewers Conference, we were honored to welcome two legends who literally wrote the book on barrel-aged beers.
Reading more like a scene from National Treasure than your typical beer origin story, the recipe for AC Golden’s latest release, which was first recorded in the annals of history by Adolph Coors himself, was only recently uncovered in a dusty, old, forgotten brewer’s log, stored in the Coors archive room.
In the game of beers, you evolve or you die. Game of Thrones allusions aside, Avery Brewing, one of Colorado’s most storied brewing programs, has leaned into the notion that all great things must continue to evolve.
Since inception, WeldWerks Brewing has defied convention. Before anyone thought it was possible, they put the agriculturally driven city of Greeley on the map as a national beer destination when no one thought possible. Liquor stores scoffed when WeldWerks introduced Juicy Bits in 16oz cans, and people thought they were crazy when they announced last year, that they would be introducing over 100 varieties of beers throughout the year, but they surpassed that mark as well.
Much like we’ve come to know from when the Great American Beer Festival come to town, one of the major external benefits of major industry centric events like next week’s Craft Brewers Conference coming to town, has been the growing …
After just three years, the Stone Brewing experiment in Germany is over. Founder Greg Koch penned a letter via the Stone Brewing blog to announce the sale of their Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens – Berlin to BrewDog.
