Here’s a look into what we do in our lab to analyze beer and how we use science to make excellent brewing decisions.
A brief encounter with Bryan while he mashes in the GABF gold medal winning Achtertuin Seizoen.
We’ve all been there. Nearly done with that growler and can’t find the intestinal fortitude to finish the job. Then it sits there. Eight lonely ounces wasting away. Two days later and you’re ready to get back after it and damn if that beer is totally flat. This, thanks to simple physics, is a situation […]

Beer flights. So helpful in familiarizing guests with our beers; this is true. The downside is that they don’t always deliver the intended experience. This is especially true when there is a full menu of amazing foods with which to pair the beers. Ideally, you will have one beer with each dish which compliments the […]
Holy Jesus, it’s HOT! I said that a lot in my 12 summers in Slower Lower Delaware. Not only is it hot there, it’s wicked humid as well creating the heat index which tells you what it really feels like. It doesn’t feel great. Now entering my second summer here in Colorado, I can say […]
So here we are, nearly four months in at The Post. We’ve slung a ton of chicken and poured a lot of beer. The best thing about it is that it’s all been crafted with a singular purpose: to make you happy. We’ve worked hard to ensure the elements of place, food and beer work […]

Research and Development. Probably our accountant’s 3 least favorite words to see on a profit and loss statement. It costs money and we don’t make any money off it. But it is critical to our success. And for a food loving, chicken hungry chef like me, R and D is lots of fun! So Last […]
Last week I went on a trip to Portland to perform the final inspection of our brewhouse at JV Northwest. They are actually located a half hour from the city in Canby but Portland served as a fine base of operations. Upon landing at PDX I hightailed it to some breweries since I wasn’t expected […]
Today was the type of day that I live for. I love making things and today that’s what I did. Since March I’ve been playing with ideas for beers, testing them, dumping them when they don’t work, drinking them when they do. Then you get to do it again. It’s totally fun to do. I’ve […]
So we’ve been in Colorado for about a month now and the family adjusting nicely. While The Post planning winds down and construction revs up, I’ve been taking time to meet a lot of fellow brewers here in the front range. My first stop was at Frontrange Brewing Company, one of our neighbors here in […]
