A couple Colorado nanobrewery stories to note from this week:
The story noted that Grimm Brothers added two 30-bbl fermenters in fall 2012, so the deal with Denver-based Tivoli Distributing was just the next natural step in the evolution of the local brand.
Russell Fruits, Grimm Brothers beer evangelist, told the Coloradoan that the brewery selected Tivoli for its smaller size, local appeal and focus on Colorado craft brews.
Grimm Brothers also uses American Eagle Distributing Co. for Northern Colorado markets, and Fruits mentioned interest in southern state expansion going forward.
Head over to the Coloradoan for the full story.
BRU was started in the garage of Boulder chef Ian Clark last year. The new spot is 2,700 square feet, will be named BRU Handbuilt Ales and Eats and have 12 BRU beers on tap. With Clark’s culinary background, the menu shouldn’t disappoint.
Opening is slated for April. For more, head over to the Daily Camera.
