Who We Are
Randy Stinson manages the taproom. His enjoyment of good beer is equal only to his enjoyment of the outdoors. He loves hitting the slopes, and is an avid backpacker.
RJ Banat is the finance guy. He has traveled extensively, and has organized and led canyoneering, mountaineering, and backcountry adventures for over a decade and a half. Some of his photos are found on this website and on the walls of the brewery.
Our staff is the lifeblood of our brewery. While our activities and hobbies are varied, we all have two things in common: A love for Colorado, and a love for craft beer. We’re open and engaging, and ready to share this passion with everyone that visits the taproom!
Why We Are
We’ve known each other for over a decade. During that time, we’ve found ourselves relying on each other as maybe volleyball teammates one day, maybe mountaineering partners in South America another time, or maybe simply enjoying each other’s company through other outdoor pursuits – backpacking, ice-climbing, canyoneering, whatever. We’ve literally had each other’s lives in our hands.
So, it’s fair to say we have a deep appreciation for the outdoors, while also consistently pushing our own boundaries and limits. Likewise, it’s our goal to ensure our brewery maintains this adventurous theme – exploring new styles and ingredients, incorporating a twist on a standard style, and regularly changing our line up and offering a different selection.
