Its birthday is this weekend.

Barley, hops and gluten

Gluten is a protein in some grains, like wheat and barley, commonly used in pasta, bread and, yes, beer. Gluten-free diets started because of Celiac disease, a serious condition in which people can’t tolerate gluten.

Upslope kicks into high gear

By Mallane Dressel
Upslope is trying to get their beer to the people with a just-announced list of upcoming spring and summer events. Boulder teetotalers will be tempted with a music festival, beer and food truck pairings, the chance to make earrings out of cans and tutorials on bike mechanics.

Bitchin’ brews

A bunch of people got totally tubular at last week’s ’80s-themed New Kids on the Block craft beer event

By Caitlin Rockett
This week’s beer tour takes us back to a time when pants could moonlight as parachutes and Frankie asked us to relax. (Full disclosure: I was born in 1985, so I’m not actually qualified to make any statements about life in the ’80s. Without Googling, I couldn’t tell you who Frankie was or why he wanted us to relax.
