I stopped by the new brewery, Big Beaver, in Loveland last week.
Big Beaver Brewery bills itself as a 'Loveland Community Brewery'. Members commit to purchase at least 2 growlers per month ($9/growler or $18/month). Membership has it's privileges ... members may make special requests for beers and they also have access to special releases.
Big Beaver did a soft launch on Oct 8th and signed up 100 members! Currently, their tap room is only open on Fridays 4-8PM and Saturdays 12-8PM.
I ordered the sampler, which included:
Wonder Wiener Wheat - a Bavarian wheat beer
Bust-A-Nut Brown Ale - 'brewed in the northern England tradition with strong malt characters'
Big Beaver Bock - classic Munich Bock (with Saaz hops)
They were out of their Shave Tail Ale. The Wonder Wiener Wheat was quite tasty while the Big Beaver Bock had an unusual aroma (but tasted okay).
The Brewer, Peter Villeneuve, Ph.D
The tap room was small (6 barstools) but the people were friendly. They even let me bring my dog inside! :)
Stop by the next time you are in Loveland, CO.
