Bootstrap Brewing in Niwot, CO (Boulder County) was founded by local residents Leslie and Steve Kaczeus. They both left the high-tech industry to follow their dream and create an adventurous craft brewery dedicated to producing a wide range of high quality ales and lagers.  After nearly five years of planning and research, the couple took a leap of faith and bought equipment to put into storage while they looked for the perfect space. The brewery opened its doors on June 20th 2012 claiming solstice as a birthday and anniversary. Steve who is a Mechanical Engineer and Program Manager by training, was an avid home brewer for over 20 years and graduated from the American Brewer’s Guild in the summer of 2011.  Leslie’s background is in marketing. In the short time since opening, they have laid down a set of well-received beers and have begun to brew fantastic classic beers and exciting seasonals including bold fruit and spice infused beer. Their goal is simple –  to make really great beer and have a lot of fun.

We also chatted with Executive Director of the Colorado Brewers Guild John Carlson. Some new bills concerning beer are running through the legislature that concern the suds including another run at full strength beer in c-stores plus a bill that would let 18-20 year old’s have a brew at restaurants, breweries, etc. if the legal guardian is with you.
