2021 WeldWerks Invitational to be Postponed Until 2022

August 25, 2021 |

Hey, remember a couple of months ago when I confidently, naively announced that the WeldWerks Invitational was definitely happening this October? Well, much like that new Jeopardy host, I wish I could scrub the internet of my past mistakes. But alas, they live on, and I’m sad to tell you that due to rapidly rising COVID cases, the WeldWerks Invitational 2021 has been postponed until 2022.

Nestled in Northwest Fort Collins, CO stands an innocuous wooden building with a lush garden encompassing it, and a quaint wooden sign that reads “Stodgy Brewing Co.” Since their original opening in September of 2020, they have gained a respectable following in their local community, despite opening in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. What was their secret to success during a time when so many other breweries were closing? One visit was all it took for us to see: Stodgy Brewing provides a home-away-from-home feeling that is downright comforting.

Firestone Walker Double Barrel Ale Turns 25

August 23, 2021 |

Not many beers brewed in the US have an origin story that equals Firestone Walker’s Double Barrel Ale, aka DBA.

Southern Grist Brewing Co. | Strange Horizons NEIPA

August 20, 2021 |

Collaborations between bands and breweries are nothing new. Run the Jewels, for example, seem to agree to beer collabs as often as they agree to play a festival. From wacky creations that never should’ve left the brains of collaborators to killer creations that you wish would never run out, the spectrum of these projects are vast. Regardless, it’s always amusing to see what folks come up with.  Read More

As a person who loves choices in food and drink, I am always elated when I see breweries come out with mixed packs. Two of my favorite things in this world are tapas restaurants and create your own six packs at beer bars.

August 18, 2021 |

Peak View Brewing in Greenwood Village, Colorado, was founded just two years ago, but the ideas of this brewery have a longer history. The founders, Sean Peters and Justen Coulfal, not only share a history of military service, but also a love of craft beer.

The state of Georgia is known for many different things: It’s the birthplace of Martin Luther King, Jr.;  the home of Atlanta Braves baseball and the Augusta National Golf Club (which hosts the Masters Tournament) and the place where Coca-Cola was invented.

Outer Range Brewing Co. | Pop Top NEIPA

August 16, 2021 |

Since 2016, Outer Range Brewing has been a consistent and popular spot for thirsty travelers passing through Frisco, Colorado looking for Belgian and IPA options. As an unashamed-to-admit hazy IPA fanboy (yes, we even have groups!), Outer Range was always on my radar when perusing the massive craft beer selections, especially in Denver. While I appreciate a brewery that can knock out a “one-hit wonder” beer, my admiration goes to breweries that make each beer a winner; that is rare, even in the secluded world of hazy IPAs. Outer Range Pop Top is one of those beers, an exemplary tropical hazy IPA with the uniquely engineered Cryo Pop Original Blend, which maximizes hop aromatics.

August 12, 2021 |

The community needed it. That’s the overwhelming reaction to Red Leg Brewing Co.’s new facility at 2323 Gardens of the Gods Rd. in Colorado Springs, CO.
