Founded in 1995, Twisted Pine made the major decision to stop bottling beer, Westword reported. The Boulder brewery will no longer package or distribute its brews making room to focus the energy of its team on the tap room and restaurant.

Owner Bob Baile shared that “Competition is a huge part of it. There are a million breweries out there now. [...] But it is also a direction that we have been going in for a long time. We have always grown organically and focused more on our customers in the ale house. The wholesaling end took up a lot of time and capital, and the return wasn’t as good as at the retail end. So we decided to sink that money into serving the customers who come to visit us. We enjoy having people come in the front door.”

The brewery is continuing production on staples like Billy’s Chilies, Hop Zealot, Big Shot Espresso Stout, and Raspberry Rising, plus a saison. Fans will have to go to the tap room located at 3201 Walnut Street.
