Funkwerks and the Great American Beer Festival

305x255 logo

We were down in Denver for the Great American Beer Festival last week and weekend. Like any other industry, there are meetings to go to, and things to learn. It’s just better with beer and good people involved.

Funkwerks poured its Saison and White at the festival, along with 461 other breweries. The beers were well received and we got a lot of good press. Head over to the Facebook page for more.

This is the type of festival where it's best to have a plan. There were well over 2000 beers on tap (36,000 gallons). One ounce pours can very quickly add up. This year there were also 55 new breweries.

Funkwerks Update

It's been one year since we moved to Colorado and started working to get Funkwerks up and running. And, we made it to GABF! It's great to see all the hard work we put in pay off and people really enjoy the beer.

Funkwerks has moved into its new location in the old Fort Collins Brewery space, and the guys are busy painting, sanding, and getting the place ready for the public. The location and tap room are licensed, the labels have been approved, and the big equipment is slowly rolling in.

The new website is up at funkwerks.com. Things are coming along nicely now that some of the governmental and administrative headaches have been dealt with. Not that there won't be more...
