Colorado Craft Beer Show Brewcast South Denver Beer Fest 5-4-2013

Chicken Dan from Boulder Beer was our special guest host as we broadcasted live from day one of the South Denver Beer Festival at Clement Park in Littleton CO.

Big thanks to Mike Burns and Jeremy Hutaff from Beer Craving who put on this fest and were kind enough to have us out.This festival featured over 60 breweries, distilleries, mead makers, gluten free providers, music, food, vendors and a ton of fun. This was a phenomenal event and can’t wait for it again next year!

In Hour One, we led off with this week’s Brew News You Can Use and then jumped on with Xandy Bustamante from Elevation Beer Company. He talked about their new beers, new packaging, their anniversary party on May 18th and much more. We then talked Boulder Beer with Chicken Dan.



In Hour Two we led off with festival details from Marty Noah from Beer Craving and The South Denver Beer Fest. We then jumped on with Todd Thibault and Todd Usry from Breckenridge Brewery. We talked about the new brewery and some new beer Breck has been tinkering with. Next up was Justin Tilotta from Twisted Pine Brewing Company. We sampled their new Cucumber Cream Ale and talked about Twisted Pine. We closed talking a little bit about canned craft beers.



We would also like to give a big shout out to Melissa Vess the Cookie Brewer and Brava Pizzeria Della Strada for providing us with some delicious cookies and pizza.
