Boulder and Colorado Still Brewing Leaders

Colorado has been known for leading the nation in both quality and quantity of brewpubs, homebrewing enthusiasts, and Boulder, Colorado itself is home to the American Homebrewers Association.

It’s no secret that Adolf Coors located his brewery in Golden, in part to have access to resources he deemed essential to the beer he used to create a staple industry for our area.

Organic, Boulder-based Asher brewery has relied on ingredients from all over the world, and in effect felt the pinch of having to pay a premium in many cases to get the quality products it desires.

Local favorite Oskar Blues Brewery’s brew-master has lamented over hop prices and availability, and feeling unable to sustain the pressure of prices and availability of local grains.

According to the Daily Camera:

Within the past three years, a number of small hop farms have popped up across the state; a couple of proprietors are working to open the Colorado barley market to smaller brewers; and others, such as Oskar Blues, have launched their own farms.

Ultimately, for those of you who enjoy a locally made fresh micro brew, Colorado’s front range is still a mecca for such a variety of brews that you’ll never find yourself in short supply in our area.
