Birra Italiana

Colorado Craft Beer Show Brewcast 4-20-2013

Marty Jones, lead singer of Wynkoop Brewing Company, co hosted with Turk for the show

In Hour One we led off with Mobile Canning‘s Brew News You Can Use! We then were joined by Falling Rock employees Paul Vismara and Bryan Jansing who are working on a book project that will be a history and guide to the Italian craft beer scene. They took a trip there in late January and brought some beers back which we shared and discussed the vibrant and evolving movement. They will be going back to Italy again here in a few months to do some more research. They aso need your help and have launched a Kickstarter program to raise some funds to write the book. Check their blog and get involved in their Kickstarted program HERE. We also jumped on the line with Tebo from Breckenridge Brewery who was at Southwest Arbor Fest in Grand Junction. He talked about some new beer release dates and about their Caped Brewsader beer made in conjunction with the folks from Comic Con. We also threw out several of our sponsors’ events and brew news.



In Hour Two we chatted with Jason Conger and Calvin Cook from 53 Peaks Brewing. They have been brewing together for several years and are planning on a brewery in Conifer. 53 Peaks cranked up a Kickstarter campaign in an effort to raise $20,000 to get the brewery going. Get involved HERE. They make some interesting brews including a Cherrywood Porter which we tried in studio. We also talked to Marty about a beer the Wynkoop is brewing for the Cheeky Monk. Marty also hit on some new brews they plan to start canning. We also talked to Becky Creighton from Culinary Connectors. She does some brewery tours and has a big event called Toques and Tails coming up in March. More events and news from our great sponsors as well!
