Winter Welcome Party 2016!

After a slow start to the snow flying, we decided to do throw a beer pairing party to appease Ullr. Suerte Tequila is handing out free samples and swag. Try out our new menu paired with seasonal beers (at a reasonable price I might add). And of course to set the stage is our local Todd Johnson playing from 7-9. All this goes down December 8th at 6pm, man are we excited to hit the slope this winter!

A $25 beer pairing is really an event in and of itself. Our winter menu is rolling out that same week.

Roasted & Toasted Fall Saison | Creamicurry Pasta
Bloodmoon Monk | Beef and Barley Stout Stew
Cotton Mouth Killer | Winter Wedge Salad
Barking Dog Brown | Mini Pork Schnitzel

To celebrate Suerte visiting us al the way up here in Silverthorne, we made a special pairing just for them! Handcrafted from 100% Tahona crushed Blue Weber Agave, Suerte Blanco is rested for a minimum of two months in stainless steel tanks prior to bottling. An incredibly smooth finish and pleasant herbal, citrus, and sweet notes make it perfect for sipping straight, on the rocks, or enjoying in a refreshing cocktail.

Suerte Tequila Special $10
Suerte Chihuahua & paired shrimp ceviche

To serenade us through the evening revelations and libations is Todd Johnson. He begins playing at 7 and will contribute an acoustic/bluesy atmosphere.

Family Fun at the Bakers’ Brewery

Featured in Mile High Mamas

We are very excited to be featured in the Mile High Mamas blog about a weekend of family fun in Silverthorne, Colorado. Among their many fun activities and great restaurants, the Holden family visited the Bakers’ Brewery and loved us! Special mention included our Barking dog brown as “one of the best browns [he’s] ever had” and “My sloppy joe was among the best I’ve tasted.” We were honored to be selected as a part of their visit.

Family Fun

Did you know that we offer a children’s menu? One of the things we are most proud of about our children’s menu is that we make all of these items from scratch too.  Ok, except for the tortillas. We cut and bread the chicken strips, boil and mash our potatoes, we bake the bread and shred the cheese. We just don’t enjoy frozen, easy-street food. All of our kids meals come with carrot coins and Goldfish which, despite our enthusiasm about the home-made aspect of our food, tend to inspire the most excitement.

The children’s menu includes grilled cheese on home made sourdough. You can order a cheese roll up which is like a quesadilla. We make our mac n cheese from scratch or you can just order butter noodles. One of our favorites is the Kids Bakey Bowl which is a little bowl of mashed potatoes, gravy, cheese with a chicken strip. And of course, we offer chicken strips. All of our kids menu items are $5.95 and of course we give crayons to color on the menu itself.

Here is a collection of photos from Lori Holden’s visit. Lori is the author of the Mile High Mamas. Thanks Lori!

Beer-iversary – June 6 at 5 PM

Beer-iversary

This is the anniversary since we poured our first beer here at the Bakers’ Brewery! We are simultaneously excited to announce our first Medal: Silver at the North American Brewers Association Beer Awards!

Second at North American Brewers Association

WooHOO!  Excellence indeed! Our Belgian Rebellion was entered in the Belgian Pale Ale Category. Our Belgian Rebeillion is 5.5%ABV and named the Belgian Rebellion in honor of the first and latest Star Wars movies and features a carefully blended complement of fruity and spicy hops to match the natural fruity-spicy character of our house Belgian yeast strain. Tropical fruit notes from Equinox and Tahoma hops are artfully balanced with spicy-peppery Triplepearl hops and a bit of zesty Rye alongside a touch of caramel malt sweetness in this lively but supremely drinkable, orange colored India Pale Ale.

Check out our name on the 2016 Winners List and also some of our fellow Summit Breweries!

Join us Monday night for a beer pairing dinner ($25) paired by our Chef Jeffrey and Brew master Cory. The first fifty beers are free (one per person) starting at 5 PM.


The Burger Stands Alone

Wait no, never mind, it come with a sidekick.

Our burger is on the menu and it sure is juicy. Aspen Ridge Beef won out in our blind tasting of contenders in its category. Our ‘no swag here’, inspiration from Colorado products, and serving food that I would want to eat also led us to this conclusion. I guess the quality really does show through the beef.

As I write this I do feel a bit “Portlandia,” probably the first time I’ve ever been able to empathize with the show really. The beef from Aspen Ridge has some winning characteristics:

  • All from Kersey, Colorado (I included the link because I didn’t know where that was either)
  • Family owned ranch
  • Certified Humane
  • Vegetarian Diet
  • No hormones, growth or otherwise
  • No antibiotics

I don’t really eat many burgers, but I feel good eating this one and not just because it tastes good.
