Funkwerks Has Big Beer Plans for 2017
- January 18, 2017 -
Funkwerks continues to make great beer at their Fort Collins brewery, in greater quantities than ever. Over the last five years, beer production increased over 600%, to 5700 barrels of golden goodness made in 2016. You can find the Funk in five states right now, with another nine "destined for funk" according to a recent posting from the four-time GABF award-winning brewery.
They released a production schedule for their flagship and specialty beers in 2017, part of which is shown here, and the rest of which can be seen here. Thanks for all the info,and we're ready for all the funk we can get.
Lost Highway Finds A New Home
- January 04, 2017 -
Belgium's Oldest Tradition On America's Longest, Wickedest Street - aka Lost Highway, located (for now) at 520 East Colfax - has found a new home. Their historic building was sold in July, 2016, and owners Tina and James Pachorek were forced to find a new location for the brewery, deli and taproom. Their legendary Cheeky Monk beer bar next door was shuttered after the sale, too, but it won't be making the move.
They plan to begin construction this month on a new facility at 12741 E. Caley Avenue, Unit 140, in Centennial. In an announcement today:
"We are very excited about the opportunities the new location will provide to us. We look forward to working with the City of Centennial and being part of the community." owner Tina Pachorek said. The new facility will house a taproom plus production facility. In the new facility they will begin canning their products for expanded distribution. Lost Highway recently partnered with Colorado Craft Distributors to distribute kegs and cans to on and off premises retailers throughout the state.
The new facility is expected to open in Spring, 2017, and the current Colfax taproom will remain open, brewing and serving their delicious Belgian-style beers until the new digs are complete.
