Yeast on Main Street

New brewery Twelve Degree joins Louisville’s main drag

By Steve Weishampel
Louisville’s Main Street is such an ideal small-town drag that it looks like it was pulled from The Truman Show. But it now has full credentials as a Colorado Main Street, as on June 26 it picked up the missing ingredient: a craft brewery. Belgian-centric brewery Twelve Degree Brewing Company, founded by head brewer Jon Howland, has popped up in the Main Street Marketplace next to the Empire and across from the Rex.

Water, water everywhere

Whirlwind Ohio brewery tour turns focus to H2O

By Steve Weishampel
After four days, six breweries and 13 beers, my conclusion on Northeast Ohio beer is that there’s something in the water. I’m not a chemist, but I am blaming the water for the little differences in the taste of the beer.

On the heels of last week’s sugary-sweet trip to Wild Woods, things turned sour. Avery Brewing Company once again hosted the Boulder SourFest, a massive, packed and tart five-hour celebration of the nation’s sourest brews.

Summer of suds

New breweries opening across the county

By Steve Weishampel
Boulder County’s craft beer explosion isn’t done yet — or that’s the assumption for the owners of a new wave of breweries-in-planning that are shooting to open this year. We count at least eight breweries that have made some degree of progress toward opening.

Extra special

West Flanders joins craft brewers specializing in one style

By Steve Weishampel
West Flanders is in this bold new group of breweries that’s making a specialty out of a particular style. While the recent addition to Boulder’s beer scene does produce an IPA, a stout, a pale ale and a few other standards, it’s all about the Belgians here. When we stop by for a Monday lunch, there are four Belgian styles on tap, along with actual Belgians from actual Belgium in bottles and on a guest tap.
