Golden Beer Talk: Denver Water’s Healthy Forests, Healthy Watersheds

April 9, 2019

Tonight’s Golden Beer Talk will feature Christina Burri of Denver Water, discussing Healthy Forests, Healthy Watersheds. She will share the lessons learned in being reactive to high intensity wildfires, such as the Hayman and Buffalo Creek fires, and how Denver Water is experiencing a return-on-investment on proactive forest and watershed management. Learn more about Golden Beer Talks….

Tonight’s featured beers come from Golden’s first craft brewer–Golden City Brewery, established in 1993!

The talk starts at 6:35. Be there early if you want to be sure to get a seat! Windy Saddle will be serving dinner. As always, there is no cover charge and purchase of beer or food is optional.

Happy 25th Anniversary, Golden City Brewery!

Golden City Brewery's 25th Anniversary

Tomorrow (Halloween) the Golden City Brewery will celebrate 25 YEARS! They’re having a combination Halloween/Anniversary party with a costume contest, food trucks, Mulligan Stew, and 1993 prices on staple beers.  Get your growlers ready!

Twenty-five years is an impressive accomplishment for any business, and particularly so for one that has operated out of the owner’s backyard.  Moreover, the founders (Janine and Charlie Sturdavant) have successfully transferred day-to-day management to their now-grown kids–Derek, the Head Brewer, and Tamara, who manages the taproom.  Clearly, the Brewery is in good hands, as they won a Gold Medal at this year’s Great American Beer Fest.

Golden City Brewery has been a favored community gathering place since 1993.  To say that they started Golden’s craft beer revolution would be misleading: our second craft brewery didn’t arrive until 2013–twenty years after Golden City Brewery opened shop.

The Golden Transcript wrote a great article about Brewery owner Janine Sturdavant.  Read it, and learn more about both Janine and Golden City Brewery!

Be sure to stop by the Brewery tomorrow (Weds. the 31st) to congratulate the entire Sturdavant clan and to enjoy a pint at 1993 prices.
