The need for speed read

Backcountry’s big menu means taking a big risk

Hello, happy place

At Our Mutual Friend, a moment of beer bliss

By Steve Weishampel
Five minutes into my visit to Our Mutual Friend, the bartender takes the needle off the record and switches the stereo input to his Mac laptop. The first hi-hat clicks and falsetto wails of “A Life of Possibilities” come out, and I love this bar.

Trouble brewing

A volunteer shift at Twisted Pine means science and strain

By Steve Weishampel
I mean, I knew I wasn’t in the best shape. I’m basically built like Animal from the Muppets, with the strength of Animal from the Muppets, my weird, fuzzy arms flopping about wildly.

Good beer is no accident

Northglenn's Beer by Design is worth the drive

By Steve Weishampel
Boulderites love to travel, but I think it’s fair to say the North Denver suburbs aren’t typically a prime destination.

By Steve Weishampel
Boulder, Boulder, Boulder. You have a lot of catching up to do. Yes, even in craft brewing.

By Steve Weishampel
Yes, with last week’s visit to Front Range Brewing Company, Boulder Weekly staff had spent an afternoon — and in many cases, a lot more than that — in every Boulder County brewery that has a tasting room.
