Boulder Beer Co, Boulder, CO

Boulder Beer Company, Colorado's First Craft Brewery, was established in 1979 by two University of Colorado physics professors.  At that time there were only 42 other operating breweries in the country!  They set up their original brewhouse on a friend's goat farm north of Boulder, then built and moved into our current brewery on Wilderness Place in 1984.  BBC still brews in small 50 barrel batches to give each a distinct, handcrafted flavor, using only the finest ingredients available including Arapahoe Glacier water, 2-row malted barley, specialty yeasts, and hops hand-selected annually.   BBC is also has full menu with amazing array of items mostly from local sources.  They recommend the "Burger and shake combo".  Their Buffalo burger: a half-pound of lean buffalo from Steel's Meat Company in Lafayette, Colorado, grilled to perfection and served on a lightly-toasted fresh bakery roll paired with their Shake Chocolate Porter.
