Colorado, one of the premier craft beer markets, will soon have four more contenders vying for the attention of sophisticated beer drinkers. J Wells Brewery is the first brewery to open in Boulder, Colo., this year and has been a labor of love for Jamie Wells, who has been working for four years to craft his 1.5 barrel (bbl) homebrew kit into a commercial brewing machine, the Westwood Denver blog reported.
The other three Boulder-area breweries set to launch are Fate Brewing, Sanitas Brewing and Upslope Brewing, which is finishing construction on a second brewery and canning facility. The Boulder brewing scene is booming with a dozen new breweries entering their final stages for a 2013 opening.
For those worrying about a craft brewery bubble, Wells told the Westwood blog that he thinks there’s still room for growth. For the full story, head over to the Westwood Denver blog.
