Colorado Craft Beer Show Brewcast 2-16-13 Tasty Weasel 4th Anniversary

Big fun at Oskar Blues‘ Tasty Weasel Taproom on Saturday for their 4th Anniversary Party! In Hour One we threw out Brew News You Can Use which included an unbelievable story on theft of rare beers from Avery Brewing. We also talked to Head Weaselette at the Tasty Weasel Shannon McGrath about the day’s festivities. We checked in with Todd Thibault from Breckenridge Brewery as he is in Arizona for the next 10 days for AZ Beer Week. We closed out the hour with former Tasty Weasel Tap Room Manager Garret Frase. He is taking over the CHUBurger just down the road from the brewery on Ken Pratt. They open in 5 weeks and he is currently taking applications for employment.



In Hour Two we talked a little more with Garret Frase about CHUBurger and about Oskar Blues in general. We then had Pat Hartman and Ron Popma on from Mobile Canning. They have been making big news as they are branching out nationally as well as adding several Colorado breweries to their customer base.  Marty Jones from the Wynkoop was up next as he updated us on the finalists for their Beer Drinker of the Year award which gets handed out next week at the Wynkoop. Chandra Ruiz who runs the Funk’n Wild sour beer club joined us next to talk about her next big meeting on Saturday March 16th at OB Homemades, Liquids and Solids. Troy Casey from AC Golden will be her featured speaker. We closed out the hour talking with Tasty Weasel Manager Shannon McGrath. This show was so good that the police were called. No joke…
