Colorado Craft Beer Show Brewcast 4-13-2013

Big Thanks to Laura Vande Zande from Renegade Brewing Company for filling in with Turk on this show! She did an amazing job!

In Hour One we led off Mobile Canning‘s with Brew News You Can Use! We then were joined by Craig Rothgery of De Steeg Brewing and John Frazee of Gravity Brewing. They talked about their respective breweries and about a collaboration they did together! De Steeg was going to name their brewery High Gravity but after a friendly phone call they just decided an new name was in order and they collaborated on a very good 10% + ABV Belgian IPA! We also jumped on with Tebo from Breckenridge Brewery to talk more about the Comic Con Beer and some of their upcoming events!

In Hour Two we led off with Bryan Selders who is the former head brewer at Dogfish Head and was recently named head brewer at The Post Brewing Company which will open in Lafayette this November. Bryan was also the co host with Sam Calagione of Brew Masters which made a short run on Discovery Channel. He talked about the jump from DFH to graphics design and then back into brewing as well as some brews he likes to experiment with. Colorado is very lucky to have this guy moving here to brew his stuff! We then talked with Melanie Whitcomb and Keniey Sonley from Parry’s Pizzeria & Bar. They recently opened their 4th location at Holly and Orchard in the DTC! They now boast 144 taps! We also talked about April 27th’s Big Ass Tap Takeover which will run at 3 locations (CR,HR,DTC) with 30 Avery taps at each! All the details are in this hour. We will be broadcasting from the Highlands Ranch location from 12-2 but get there early as Adam Avery will be doing a little toast with us around 11:30 am.
