In Episode 46 of the “Boys Are From Märzen” podcast, Kindsey Bernhard is joined by Laura Bruns, owner of Factotum Brewhouse in Denver Colorado.
Bruns and her brother, Chris, founded Factotum Brewhouse in 2015 with a notion of a homebrewer-driven brewery.
With the weather in Denver finally beginning to think about becoming cold, I wanted to take the time to review one of my favorite local beers to share with friends and family in front of the fire. I remember being introduced to this beer during a weekly Friday-morning meeting. I was listening to a brewery talk about a new specialty release, and, since we were not allowed to talk during presentations, a new message appeared on my computer screen from the coworker sitting next to me. It read, “that is one of the few beer names that I am upset that I did not come up with first.” The brewery was River North, and the beer was Nightmare Fuel.
Over 5,200 miles away, two plus weeks of celebration featuring streets lined with jubilant semi-cognizant attendees sporting their dirndls and lederhosen prost-ing to the autumn festival of beer that is Oktoberfest. Meanwhile back in Denver, Colorado, you can now discover a slice of Munich in the form of liter steins and proper slow pour pilsner glasses that speak to the detail and authenticity of Bierstadt Lagerhaus.
