FAQs

Bootstrap Brewing is a kick @$$, independent craft brewery in Boulder County Colorado. We’ve got taprooms and production facilities in Niwot and Longmont.  At both locations, you’ll find us diligently brewing our award winning, fresh, delicious, craft beer which we supply to some of the best restaurants and liquor stores along the front range and western slope.  Visit our tasting rooms and enjoy a flight, pint or buy some beer to go fresh from the source.  On many days we offer live music and fun activities, which can be found on the calendar page link.

WHO ARE YOU GUYS?
We’re Leslie and Steve Kaczeus and we both left the high-tech industry to follow our dream of creating an adventurous craft brewery dedicated to producing a wide range of high quality ales and lagers.

Steve is a Mechanical Engineer and Program Manager by training and was an avid home brewer for many years. He graduated from the American Brewer’s Guild in the summer of 2011.  Leslie’s background is in marketing.  We are the sole owners with no partners or investors.

Our goal is simple – we want to make really great beer and have a lot of fun. We also love to rock out and our beer enjoys the best classic rock 24 hours a day which is why it’s so happy and delicious!  Did you notice that we have music pairings with our beer?

CAN I HOST AN EVENT AT YOUR FACILITIES?
Absolutely.  Visit our contact us page to ask about your date and time.

DO YOU HAVE GLUTEN FREE BEER?
Our beer is not gluten free however it is gluten reduced to <10,000ppm and many customers who are gluten sensitive drink our beer. One exception is our LushPuppy New England IPA which is NOT gluten reduced.

ARE THERE PRESERVATIVES OR ADDITIVES IN YOUR BEER?
No.  Additionally, we don’t filter our beer so it is vegan friendly as well.

DO YOU GIVE TOURS?
Yes! In Longmont, we have a weekly tour scheduled at 4 on Saturdays.  We may be able to do tours at other times in both locations depending on staff availability so please ask if interested!

CAN I BRING MY DOG TO THE BREWERY?
Well behaved, quiet dogs are allowed outside only and must be on leash and under owner control at all times. If your dog barks, please leave them at home as we adhere to a 3 barks you’re out policy.  Please always clean up after your furry friends.

WHAT ABOUT KIDDOS?
Our Niwot taproom is adult only.  Our Longmont taproom is family friendly however we kindly request that your kiddos be seated with you at all times. Please respect other visitors’ experience who are often here seeking sanctuary.

DO YOU SERVE FOOD?
