And you should go. This summer, Josh Mishell visited 25 distilleries. Twenty-two in Colorado, two in Brooklyn, and one in Maine. His journey covered many miles and many hangovers. Thankfully for you, your wallet, though not so much your liver, you can visit 26 of them this Sunday at Rackhouse Pub. The 3rd Annual Colorado Distillers […]

Colorado’s Distilleries in 80 Days

9139756943_cf5e3fba8c

By guest writer Josh Mishell When I think about Colorado’s craft distilling industry, I see many parallels to our flourishing craft beer scene. The main difference is that craft distilling is currently where craft beer was 25 years ago. What this means is that there are many opportunities to build a distillery in a unique place, and be the […]

Rackhouse 3rd Anniversary Bash: Dry Dock Tap Takeover

You can lead a horse to Dry Dock...

Halloween is kind of a big deal for me. I love getting dressed up and seeing other people’s costumes. Also: binge drinking. No, “binge drinking” is a negative term. How about “unmoderated levels of drinking”? That sounds better. This year, I decided to do something a little different and drink good beer for Halloween instead […]

Denver Off the Wagon Post-GABF Hangover Breakfast

Bloody Mary

No one wants to think about the Great American Beer Festival being over before it starts; however, with a sigh, I say it must be done. But I don’t think of it as a bad thing, think of it as an “I’m hung over and need food in my belly” kinda thing. We’re partnering up […]

2012 Colorado Distillers Fest Recap

2012 Colorado Distillers Fest

I’d like to start off by first talking about how much liquid cheese I consumed. This substance, especially if there is beer added to it, is probably the most delicious thing on the planet. I suppose that could be debated, but its hot, molten, salty goodness drew me in, and there was probably a healthy […]

2nd Annual Colorado Distillers Festival

Drinking Colorado

2012 Boulder SourFest – a puckered place for good beer and good people.

SourFest 2012 5

Boulder SourFest.  It’s a magical place wedged between October’s Great American Beer Festival and January’s Big Beers Festival.  It’s a place where the Russian River table–pouring blessed beers–stands sans a line. It’s a mecca for beer aficionados to congregate and proclaim the beer gospel.  And after selling out in a mere 3 minutes this year, entry tickets were even […]

Derby Day AC Golden Tap Takeover at Rackhouse Pub

rackhouse-ac-golden-derby-day

Tap takeovers are a special sort of event. The bars that have the capacity to invite a brewery for a takeover tend to have a decent selection as is, so the brewery needs to really bring out the heavy hitters. Yes, the normal 6-pack offerings are important, but when you’ve got 20 taps with the […]
