We started following the Aspen Brewing Company in just after they opened their doors in this swanky Colorado ski town in 2008; we then returned each summer for 3 straight years, following their ups and downs as they grew into a 7 barrel brewery/taproom space 'down by the river' away from Aspen Mountain. Then we took a 4 year break to focus on the East, and returned this summer - has anything changed?
Well, let's put it this way: Owner Duncan Clauss shows us around the new production brewery, the canning line, and the new 'uptown' tap room. Growth? Leaps and Bounds. Change? Indeed. Rockin' and rollin'? Sing out, y'all. Sing out.
