About Beer HERE! Brewing the New West:
The incredible exhibit originally developed by History Colorado is coming to Boulder!
Beer Here! will feature stories from the past, present and future, as well as more than 160 authentic artifacts from Colorado’s beer and brewing history, connecting time periods. Some of the most compelling objects include:
A Denver brewer’s union card from 1888, written entirely in German, because that was the language most brewers spoke at the time;
Adolph Coors’ original hand-drawn sketch of his first beer label, on loan from the Coors archive
A massive wooden bottle smasher used by the Denver Police Department during Prohibition
This exhibit’s development was generously supported by the Ball Corporation and Coors Brewing Company and brought to Boulder thanks to a gift from Kathy and Brian Spear.
About Avery Brewing Company:
In the early 90s, 27-year-old Adam Avery stumbled upon the art of homebrewing after being accepted to law school. “Homebrewing totally consumed me,” he says. “I had two or three batches going at once.” Making the tough decision to forego law school, Adam talked his father, Larry, into using some of his retirement money to open a brewery with him. Thankfully (for our sake and for Larry’s), Adam’s talent for brewing led to the creation of some memorable brews. After 20 years of brewing award-winning beer in a small warehouse, Adam finally got a chance to build his dream brewery. He wanted to create a special space for people to come together and connect over craft beer and great food.
