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. 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 BUY A KEG FROM YOU?
You can buy one from your favorite liquor store that sells kegs. If it’s not in stock, they can order it for you if you give them a little bit of notice. See Find Our Beer.
CAN I HOST AN EVENT AT YOUR FACILITIES?
Absolutely and in Niwot, you can even bring in your own band if you like. Email us to ask about your date and time.
DO YOU HAVE GLUTEN FREE BEER?
Our beer is not gluten free however the majority of them are gluten REDUCED to <10 ppm and many customers who are gluten sensitive drink our beer. Our wheat beers are not gluten reduced. Our Sparkalicious Hard Seltzer is gluten free.
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?
With advance request, we can often accomodate a group tour but we may be able to do spontaneous tours 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 taprooms are family friendly however we kindly request that your kiddos are seated with you or held at all times as many of our customers are here seeking quiet and sanctuary. No roaming or running around allowed.
DO YOU SELL GIFT CARDS?
Yes, you can purchase gift cards in any amount in the tasting room.
DO YOU HAVE WI-FI?

DO YOU SERVE FOOD?
Yes, we sell Mountain America Beef Jerky, chips, pretzels and snacks in both taprooms.
In Longmont, we sell Lorenzo’s Burritos and have food trucks on some days so check our calendar for details. There are many pizza restaurants that deliver as well.
In Niwot, there are many great restaurants that deliver or you are welcome to bring your own food if you super duper pinky swear promise to clean up after yourself.
DO YOU SERVE NON-ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES?
Yes, we sell Izze sparkling beverages, tomato juice and bottled water. Tap water is always available for free at any time.
