Review: Shmaltz's Funky Jewbelation brings a complex blend

By Steve Weishampel

Honey and history

Redstone Meadery pours ancient alcohol concoction

By Steve Weishampel
Man, I tell myself as I pull up the blindfold for about the 30th time, I’m glad I’m working right now so I can cheat so often.

Power use and marijuana: Where the grass isn’t greener

Indoor marijuana growing can consume large amounts of energy

By Steve Weishampel
Indoor marijuana grow operations aren’t as green as the weed they produce. According to data from Xcel Energy and estimates from those familiar with indoor growing, a single light used to grow 16 square feet of pot consumes about half as much energy as the average Colorado house in a one-month time frame.

At Longmont's Oskar Blues, a malty mea culpa

Tiny bubbles

J Wells among a new breed of super-small breweries

By Steve Weishampel
