Nearly legal, Great Divide turns 19 and parties.

“This is a beer I could sip on for hours,” George tells me. Outside of this, I don’t really know who George is. He’s holding the small, four or five ounce syrupy pour of the Barrel Aged Yeti Stout, poured directly from the Stranahan’s barrel it had been aged in. He’s right, like most aged […]

$1 samples at Great Divide generate $73,201 in donations for local non-profits

In the middle of 2011, Great Divide realized they had an interesting problem. People had learned that small samples of the beer were free, and on a Friday night would pour into the taproom, slam a flight of high octane brew, and wander off to other locations of lesser repute. Call them frugal or hyenas, […]

Peter’s Top 3 of 2012

GABF – Yes, I know it’s the biggest beer event of the year, but this was the first year that my calendar lined up well and allowed me to make it to the GABF. It’s been billed as the Super Bowl of beer and it did not disappoint. The variety of beer and chance to […]

The Dark Side of Wynkoop

Join the dark side.  They’ve got great beer! No, I haven’t been spending time with Darth Vader and my soul is no more corrupted than usual. In fact, my propensity for darkness helped raise $14,000 for Metro CareRing, a local food pantry, during Wynkoop Brewing Company’s Parade of Darks. Parade of Darks is Wynkoop’s annual celebration […]

Where was I?  Oh yeah, Brewer’s Olympics!  For the second year in a row, Vine Street Pub hosted a veritable shit-show of a field […]

Brew at the Zoo makes social activists out of beer geeks

Beer geeks are, whether they know it or not, social activists.  Do you enjoy drinking at your hometown brewery?  You’re supporting small businesses.  Do you like fresh-hopped beers?  You’re supporting local farmers.  Have you ever enjoyed a Silverback Pale Ale from Wynkoop?  You’re raising money for gorilla conservation.  You don’t have to boast nasty-ass dreadlocks, […]
