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 in Colorado.
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.
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?
WHAT ARE YOU DOING FOR SAFETY AND COMPLIANCE DURING COVID 19?
- We’ve installed ionizers in all of our taproom RTUs. Air ionization works through the reaction of negatively and positively charged ions. The ions attach to airborne pathogens, such as viruses causing a chemical reaction on the cell membrane’s surface. This deactivates the viruses, rendering them harmless, so they can no longer spread or cause infection.
- When weather and volume permits, we keep the garage door open for additional air flow.
- We’re operating like a restaurant in terms of host seating and full table service in order to allow us to control thorough cleaning of tables and menus between guests. We have adopted the State’s full cleaning protocol system.
CAN I BUY A KEG FROM YOU?
You can buy a 1/2 BBL from your favorite liquor store that sells kegs (we don’t sell 1/6 BBLs at this time). If it’s not in stock, they can definitley order it for you if you give them a little bit of notice. See Find Our Beer.
