Odell Brewing Small Batch Festival – a little something for everyone

May 28th, 2018

This Memorial weekend, I had the pleasure of attending a beer festival focused on limited-release and one-off brews during the Small Batch Festival hosted by Odell Brewing. When you get a chance to attend this festival, do it. For the price of a ticket, this festival continues to deliver outstanding brews, awesome music, commemorative cups, free parking and bike racks, and food trucks year after year. How do I begin to describe one beer when there were over 40 beers this year? Furthermore, which one deserves a shout-out more then another?  There is no shortage of amazing-ness at this festival.... Read More

Colorado breweries are a bit of a destination tour these days. Snowbank Brewing is one not to miss while in town. The location makes it easy to get to by foot since you’re likely to already be going to other breweries nearby, like for instance, Odell Brewing, Funkwerks, and Red Truck (coming in July).

Ok, so hemp beer is nothing new to Colorado. After all, craft beer brewers have been profoundly known for their ingenuity, creative and scientific skills that pair with their collaborative spirit to produce great taste and awesome beer.  However, The Hemperor Pale Ale IS new.

What is the neighborhood coming to at Jessup Farm Barrel House

April 19th, 2018

When it comes to a fabulous neighborhood tap house, I am the luckiest beer geek. Within walking distance, Jessup Farms Barrel House is a real treat for my feet and my craft beer loving taste buds.  In 2015, The Barrel House was literally born in a barn that is 133 (give or take) years-old. The 3,000 square-foot restored barn sits on the 13-acre Jessup Farm Artisan Village with other shabby-chic businesses like Bindle Coffee, The Farm House at Jessup Farm, and Cacciatore at Heller’s Kitchen; just to name a few as a point of reference. All of which are next to Bucking... Read More
