About Nick Nunns

Nick loves two things above all others: Beer and heavy metal. He's the owner and brewer at the soon-to-open TRVE Brewing Company. If you get him drunk enough, he will probably raise a toast to a Norse god.

Post 666 – Tuesday Afternoon Metal

Only appropriate that post #666 should be a metal song about mead, right? Cheers!

Like All Good Rock Stars, Thus Dies Rockbar

Earlier this week our friends at the Westword Cafe Society posted a piece about an upcoming transformation of one of the most iconic and ridiculous dive bars in Denver: Rockbar. I linked it to our editor PJ with a large sigh of dismay, and asked if I should write a piece about how terrible an idea […]

This year was my third time attending the March of Dimes’ MUDD Volleyball tournament courtesy of my girlfriend’s employer Location3 Media, and I gotta say, if you didn’t make it out for it, ya blew it. This year marked the 28th year of the messy event. The event is held in an open field attached […]

Wagon Rides – Golden City Review and Our Next Ride

The last Wagon Ride was a blast! We had a tight crew of six folks which made for a manageable peloton on the way out to Golden. Golden City Brewery had some delicious beers waiting for us when we arrived as well. Most of us opted for lighter and lower ABV beers like their Cedar […]

Wagon Rides: Copper Kettle

If Tour de Fat and Ragbrai have taught us anything, it’s that bikes and beer go hand-in-hand. My perfect day is a easy-paced bike ride bookended with espresso and beer. In part one of this new series – and soon to be Wagon-sponsored event – we’ll be mapping out rides from Denver to some of […]

Rainy Day Drinkin’

It’s a shitty day out there. Grim, cold, grey, wet, and generally pretty unpleasant. Since moving to Denver from the East Coast 5 years ago I’ve lost my tolerance entirely for days like these. Obviously I need to comfort myself with some kind of delicious beverage, but I’m lost for ideas. Anyone have a favorite […]

Beer Patriotism

It’s almost American Craft Beer Week, where we celebrate everything that is good about an industry where everything’s good. As a result I feel the need to get this out on the table: I’m a dirty pinko freedom-hating hippy Canuck. Born in Montreal. Yup, that’s the French speaking part of Canada. I know, I know, […]

Now You Can Be Doubly Aware of How Much You Won’t Taste Coors Light

This summer’s Coors Light labels will now feature not just the cold activated Rocky Mountains in the background, but also will now have TWO temperature strips for COLD and SUPER COLD. I really wish they had just put AWESOME and FUCK YEAH BRO! on the strips instead. (via beernews.org)

Alabama Boycotts Five Colorado Craft Breweries

Free the Hops – “a grassroots, non-profit organization whose mission is to help bring the highest quality beers in the world to Alabama” – has initiated a boycott on all products distributed by Anheuser-Busch in their home state. Their justification for the boycott is the alleged efforts A-B is taking against their moves to “modernize” […]

Belmont Breeze Brewing Challenge

A friend of mine is REALLY into horse racing. She emailed me yesterday to see if I’d be interested in brewing a beer for her Belmont Stakes party. Her hopes were that the beer could evoke the official drink of the event: the Belmont Breeze. Not one to back down from a challenge, I plan to accept. […]

Oh Untappd…

In the interest of full disclosure, I’m gonna say this right up front: I was once developing a site that was exactly like Untappd. It was gonna track all the beers you were drinking, where you were drinking them, and tell you what all your friends were drinking. It was going to be AWESOME. Then […]
