Another road show at Arvada Beer Company! We talked to owner and brewer Cary Floyd about his new beers on tap and about their women’s only homebrew competition. Steve Kurowski from the Colorado Brewer’s Guild also joined in to talk about the new study they did with the University of Colorado on economic impact from the craft brewing industry on our state. This segment added 446 million into the economy in 2011. Pretty amazing numbers. We also talked to Scott Kerkmans who organizes Colorado Beer Week which is coming up starting May 12th. Nicol Winkler and Lindsay McNicholas from the Crafty Ladies also jumped on with us! They discussed the Crafty Ladies, the opening Colorado Beer Week event at Highland Tap and Burger on May 12th and an event they are putting together with Firestone Walker and Left Hand on May 14th. We also talked with Tebo from Breckenridge Brewery and Daniell Ekker from Argonaut Wine & Liquor. A jam packed show here!
