Brewery Description:

A short time ago, Duncan and Brad were roommates at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Boulder exposed these keystone light drinkers to the world of craft beer. Weekly specials at Mountain Sun Brew-Pub, frequent trips to Twisted Pine Brewery, Boulder Beer and other establishments helped the guys take to the world of craft beer without reservation. Soon, these converted craft beer drinkers were home-brewing with the intention to expand their knowledge of beer and the brewing process. The hands-on approach to beer education was their first step towards opening the Aspen Brewing Company. Having frequented Aspen throughout their time in Boulder, Duncan and Brad were confident that Aspen was the perfect place to open a brewery. The craft beer market had been tested by Flying Dog a decade earlier, and their success was further inspiration to make the dream happen. Following graduation in Boulder, the guys moved to Aspen to pursue opening a brewery. In September of 2007, after months of careful planning and industry research, their dream began to take shape when they leased a space in downtown Aspen. After months of construction to renovate the building’s interior as well as assembling the brew system, brew team, and the millions of other parts and pieces that go into opening a craft brewery, the doors finally opened in March, 2008.
