Way more our speed that the uber-competitive Boulder. Don't get me wrong - love the Boulder and it's progressive community, sweet biking trails and proximity to Nederland and Eldora. But, if you want to settle in for the long term, best to have an Ivy League degree, some Gold Medals and a large bank account. These are the folks you are competing with for tiny $400,000 houses and the good jobs. Not for me. Took us three years to figure it out I guess - LOL.

We sent host Stephen Angus and cameraman Craig Stephens back for more punishment on Saturday of the 2012 Great American Beer Festival in Denver. They captured some stories from the Colorado breweries we didn't catch on Friday. Featured in this episode: Bristol Brewing, Lone Tree Brewing and Pateros Creek.

We spent a couple of days at this year's Great American Beer Festival. As you might imagine, we wound up with a lot of footage, so we've decided to edit it into three shows. This is Part One of Three, focusing on non-Colorado breweries. Part Two will feature Colorado breweries and Part Three tells the Gluten-Free story in craft beer today. Stay tuned!

Now - a decade or so later - I've become a full-time student, aficionado, fan and snob of all things craft beer. In 2009 I started Beer City Television in Portland, Oregon - spending a day at the North American Organic Brewer's Festival where we met and interviewed the likes of Eel River Brewing's Ted Vivitson and home-brewing grandfather Fred Eckhardt. Now that I'm based in Boulder, Colorado, not only am I in the other "beer capital" of the West Coast, I'm diving deeper into my education and appreciation of the art and craft of beer. This includes brewing my first homebrew this year, a Chocolate Porter by way of Charlie Papazian's book The Joy of Home Brewing.
Which leads me to my final thought - *PLEASE TAKE NOTE COLORADO BREWERIES* - I'm now looking to start working part-time in a brewery, doing just about anything I can find to do! Slinging beers, slinging bags of malt or just slinging a few words of marketing hype to help sell the product. The only way I'm going to learn as much as possible is to get on the inside - and what better way than to become a brewery employee. Thus far, I made a pitch to Boulder Beer about becoming their Boulder Sales Rep. I didn't win the spot - I did however make the cut from 200-some applicants to six, thanks to a little video resume and put together for them. I'll share it with the one or two of you that actually read my blog - right here. I'm also shaking hands and asking questions at some other veteran breweries around Boulder like Oskar Blues, Twisted Pine - as well as some of the newer endeavors such as Gravity Brewing in Louisville and the upcoming Fate Brewing here in Boulder. So excited about the next phase - stay tuned here for the occasional "play by play".
Thanks for reading! Cheers. ETK.

Part two in our series "Boulder Breweries By Bike". On the second half of our day we rode to Twisted Pine Brewing and learned a little about their history and their oh-so-spicy hot pepper beer - the Ghostface Killah.

In this first of a two part series, host Stephen Angus and myself traveled by bike from the Boulder Video Design farm in South Boulder, to Asher Brewing Company in Northeast Boulder. We spoke with the founder and brewmaster Chris Asher about what it means to be Colorado's only Certified Organic Brewery. Part Two of Boulder Breweries By Bike is #E06 and features Twisted Pine Brewing.
