We broadcasted live from the American Homebrewer’s Association Rally at the Tasty Weasel Taproom at Oskar Blues Brewery! Big thanks to taproom manager Garret Frase for filling in for The Gubna this week!

In Hour One we opened up with some brew news you can use! We then were joined by the American Homebrewer’s Association Director Gary Glass. We talked about what the AHA does and about membership privileges. Next up was our man Todd Thibault from Breckenridge Brewery who jumped on to talk about all things Breck! He of course was headed to a beer festival, this time the Fall Harvest Beer Festival in Fort Collins. We closed out the hour with Leslie and Steve Kaczeus from Niwot’s Boot Strap Brewing. They are currently running 8 taps of some fine Colorado craft brew!

They were on site canning some home brew and now have canned beers for 9 different breweries.
