How well do Colorado based tech startup companies and beer go together? Well, just about as well as anything in Colorado and beer!
We attended the Bootstrapped Brews event last night in Denver. This was a community of communities event in that it brought together tons of great tech startup companies and the brewing community. Teams from companies like Ombud, Sphero, ReadyTalk and Ping Identity and many others came out to share their best in-house brews with each other and the community.
There was good food, music and representation from the brewing community with presence from Crazy Mountain, Left Hand Brewing, and CO-Brew which offers great homebrew supplies and in-store, guided brewing options.
Let's admit it, not all homebrews turn out great, but I was very impressed with the quality of brews coming from the startups. The trophies, which are great examples of customized Keg Cap Tap handles, were awarded to winners. These were well deserved as I would buy the winning beers if available a the liquor store!
Great people, great products, great brews and great networking. It doesn't get better!
