Wild Woods Brewery was created with inspiration gathered around the a campfire in Crested Butte, the Boulder Daily Camera reveals. The couple behind the new brewery, Jake and Erin Evans, took nature's call seriously and wanted to reproduce it into their brew. This is how the Campfire Red was born, a Red ale brewed with smoked barley, which imparts a subtle smokiness to its malt-forward flavor. The nature-inspired recipes did not stop there - the Treeline IPA, an earthy India Pale Ale conditioned with organic juniper berries, the Berrypatch Wheat, made with a blend of raspberry and strawberry purees; and Ponderosa Porter, revealing subtle notes of butterscotch and vanilla, reminiscent of the fragrant Ponderosa pine trees in the summer sun.
Ready to share their creations, the couple and business partners decided to open a nano brewery focused on very fresh beers and, in September, they did just that. Wild Woods Brewery, a two-barrel brewhouse and a comfortable tasting room, is located west of the intersection of Arapahoe Avenue and 55th in Boulder. It is open Tuesday through Friday from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m, Saturday from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.
