Halfway through the year already, folks. Get ready for three months of crazy tourist traffic as you try to casually get a table at your favorite local restaurant, brewery or bar.

What We’re Drinking | February 12, 2021February 12, 2021 | Justin Pennel
We’re just two days out from Valentine’s Day 2021. Everyone treats this “holiday” differently regardless of their relationship status, and who knows what kind of wrench COVID is going to through into that equation. One thing I think we can all get behind is treating yourself or a loved one to a growler fill or some cans from your local brewery. This is What We’re Drinking.
Dialed in with WeldWerks | Neil Fisher on Flights, Fan Questions and the Worst Beer Weldwerks Ever MadeMay 6, 2020 | Jaclyn Menendez
Jake Goodman, the marketing and sales director at WeldWerks Brewing, was in the middle of answering a question about Juicy Bits when a loud thump thump thump reverberated through his Zoom audio. He paused and looked off-screen. “Hey, buddy, Daddy’s talking to his friends—can you please hold off on the drums until I’m done?” he asked his son. The camera cut back to a laughing Neil Fisher, the head brewer and co-founder of WeldWerks. A majestic pink dollhouse towered behind Neil; his children’s playroom had been repurposed into a makeshift interview corner. Welcome to “Dialed in with WeldWerks”.
Beers to Get Over Your ExFebruary 11, 2020 | Karen Mills
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. The day can open up old wounds or make fresh ones sting a bit more when it’s a fresh heartbreak; you might even be cheers-ing to the end of a toxic and draining relationship. Regardless of the situation, having a beer in hand or a stocked fridge might help take the edge off.* Although I am personally in a relationship, I was curious to see what others would want to have on-hand, so I’ve rounded up some beers for anyone who is trying to get over an ex… or simply wants to make their Valentine’s date a frosty beer.

The Beer Industry Braces for Aluminum TariffsApril 19, 2018 | Taylor Laabs
Although the American economy has largely enjoyed growth the last several years, portions within the broader picture have been in a state of flux for some time. For macro and micro brewers alike, the current state of aluminum has both micro and macro brewers concerned. A quick peek at the shelves of your local retailer will reveal rows and rows of aluminum cans. 12, 16 and even 19.2 oz cans have been a huge boon for larger craft brewers and macro producers like MillerCoors, offering greater shelf life and added convenience to consumers. But the strategy of putting everything into cans is entering a period of uncertainty due to the recently proposed tariffs and sanctions put in place by President Donald Trump.
While Trump claims the new regulations will help bolster American business, small to regional sized brewers like WeldWerks and Founders, along with massive brewing giant MillerCoors, are voicing their concerns.

To say that WeldWerks Brewing has had a big year simply would not do enough justice to the meteoric rise experienced by the two and a half-year-old Greeley, CO-based brewery. At last year’s Great American Beer Festival, they earned their second GABF medal with a gold medal victory in the Wood and Barrel-Aged Strong Stout category for Medianoche after previously earning a silver medal for their Hefeweizen in the American Style Wheat Beer with Yeast category in 2015 as.

Brewery Showcase | WeldWerks Brewing (Greeley, CO)June 15, 2016 | Tristan Chan
Greeley, CO looks and feels much like any of the other needle pinned micro communities that dot a map of the U.S.—so much so, that its slogan reads, “An All-America City”. With its deep roots in agriculture, livestock, and community, Greeley has developed a equally misguided stigma that has become hard to shake. But make no mistake, Greeley is no mere cowtown, at least not when it comes to beer.
