Colorado Craft Beer Show Brewcast: Saturday September 21st 2013

 Turk and Daniel Ekker from Argonaut Wine & Liquor hosted the show from the studio in the DTC! Guests in hour one were Dennis and Daniel Richards from Echo Brewing Company in Frederick. These are two really great guys, who make great beer and kicked some ass at the Colorado State Fair last month. We got their story and talked about their brews. Todd Thibault also jumped on from the Breckenridge Oktoberfest.

In Hour two we were joined by a legend in the business! Keith Villa founded Blue Moon Brewing Company and grew it into what it is today! We got his background, how the idea was almost smashed before and during it’s inception and about the craft versus crafty debate.

We also talked to Chad Melis from Oskar Blues about their fundraising efforts to help folks who were hit with the recent flooding in Colorado. It’s the Oskar Blues CAN’d Aid Foundation!
