anniversary – 2/2 – PorchDrinking.com
Great Divide may be one of the original gangsters of Denver’s craft beer scene, but in a lot of ways, it’s still evolving. 2016 will mark the first anniversary of Great Divide’s Barrel Bar, their second production facility located on Brighton Boulevard, and the 22nd anniversary of the brewery’s existence. Last year, anniversary goers got a sneak peek in the first phase build out of The Barrel Bar, and this year’s Great Divide 22 Anniversary Party celebration, will feature all the bells and whistles.
Fieldwork Brewing is a Berkeley-based brewery committed to quality and freshness, that has taken the Bay Area by storm. Their beers are some of the most aromatic and balanced hoppy beers that you will ever have. The vast beer array of beers Fieldwork offers are truly unique and forever changing. The draft list may be completely different a week later.
Having been open for a year and exponentially growing in popularity, Fieldwork Brewing has reason to celebrate for three days. Co-founder and head brewer Alex Tweet stated, “in my eyes the anniversary is to celebrate our customers. We honest to god have the best customers I have ever seen in this industry, and the anniversary is hopefully going to be a fun weekend for them to celebrate what they helped build. If it wasn’t for them we wouldn’t be in business.”
There’s a lot love about craft beer: the people, the stories, the creativity, and those senses of freedom and abandon from the monotony of big domestics… Oh yeah, and the beer of course. The incredible vastness of the array of flavors and choices mixed with the never-ending search for newer and better makes this craft beer bubble so unique and so fun. Yet in the midst of all this, there seems to be one aspect of it that tends to get overlooked:
February has come to a close, and with it, a new playing field for craft beer. During NYC Beer Week, Shmaltz Brewing’s tasting event for their newly released Funky Jewbelation left me reminiscing of a flavor not easily forgotten. The name is certainly indicative of what awaits beneath the bottle cap.
I wanna go where everybody knows your name… perhaps it reads a little too closely to a sitcom cliché, but ever since I moved to Denver I’ve been searching for the brewery version of my Cheers, my McClaren’s, …
In 2010, Josh & Beth Stacy and Josh & Trisha Goodridge — longtime friends — opened Rolla’s first brewpub. But it was a long, long time in the works. Like any business, there were big ups and downs on the road to the first pour.

Upslope Brewing Company has come a long way from its humble beginnings 7 years ago. Most Coloradoans have become familiar with their core lineup of cans as solid pack-in pack-out refreshment options. The Boulder brewery has been able to prove that it’s not a one-trick pony in recent years with a slew of inventive seasonal releases such as their Pumpkin, Christmas, White Thai IPA, and this year’s standout Blood Orange Saison. However, perhaps the greatest display of what Upslope is truly capable will be on display this Saturday during their 7th Anniversary Party.

I thought to myself “the only way to drink this beer, is blasting AC/DC’s ‘Thunderstruck’ while drinking from a glass with the god of thunder, THOR!” After a long night working at the …

This past Saturday we celebrated Great Divide Brewing Company’s 20th Anniversary with 2,000 of our hop cone compatriots in Denver, CO!
A long, line of craft beer connoisseurs formed on Brighton Boulevard. Cars slowly passed by looking for open parking spaces; patrons cruised in on their two wheelers and entered into the queue for bicycle valet (free courtesy of our friends over at Denver B-Cycle). A line of kegs outlined the entryway with Great Divide staff members donned in their 20th anniversary red shirts and sporting the largest of smiles. They knew what we were in for as we were wrist banded. . .
