Bootstrap Brewing to Open in Niwot
NIWOT, Colorado (April 23, 2012) – Bootstrap Brewing announced today that it is on schedule to open in June in downtown Niwot. The brewery, located at 6778 North 79th Street just south of Cottonwood Park Shopping Center, is currently under interior build out.
Steve and Leslie Kaczeus will be hands-on owners of Bootstrap Brewing.
“We are so pumped about the positive feedback we’re receiving from all the Niwot residents and businesses that we’ve spoken to so far,” Leslie explained. “We also live here in town and have always dreamed of opening a neighborhood brewery. Our goal is simply to make great beer and have fun.”
The Kaczeus’ spent the last four years planning and researching the craft beer industry and were inspired by the breweries and biergartens they visited while vacationing in Bavaria. They have also enjoyed meeting other brewery owners and love the unique camaraderie and support the craft beer industry is known for.
“Brewing beer has been a passion of mine for a long time and I’m living the homebrewer’s dream by opening my own place,” Steve explained. “After graduating from the American Brewer’s Guild last summer, we made the commitment to open up a brewery and took the first step by buying a really cool copper brewhouse which we stored while we searched for the perfect place”.
Beer Maestro David Mentus is getting back into the game to help the couple launch the endeavor. “I am excited to bring my experience and passion for brewing craft beer to Bootstrap Brewing and the town of Niwot,” he explained. “We will be offering an eclectic mix of beers from classic styles to unique ales and lagers that will satisfy a wide range of beer enthusiasts.”
Bootstrap Brewing will have a tasting room on premise that will be open afternoons to the public where patrons can purchase tasting flights, pints and 64-ounce growlers to take home. In addition, the company will have a wholesaler’s license to sell to accounts.
