Secrets at Sanitas

How a $2 discount can go to your head

By Steve Weishampel
We all enjoy being in on a good secret. I mean, if it’s a harmless, fun kind of secret, not the other kind. We all like knowing about the shortcut home, the secret menu item, the password, where the unmarked door will lead.

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. Northglenn and Thornton probably have a few undeserved negative associations around Boulder, whether for being too suburban or too flat or too monotonous or just not being Boulder.

Superhero-themed Odd13 to open in Lafayette

By Steve Weishampel
There’s nothing I like more than an odd couple. And there are plenty of unexpected pairings at Odd13 Brewing Company, the next brewery to join Boulder County’s ever-growing list when it holds its grand opening Aug. 3.

Baby beers at BRU

By Steve Weishampel
The beer with lunch. In my non-scientific survey of the Boulder workforce, roughly 100 percent of Boulder’s workers have experienced it. But many are unaware of the dangers of the beer with lunch.

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.
