Who we are and how we got started:
The Indian Peaks Alers is Longmont, Colorado’s homebrew club. Consisting of a wide range of brewing experience from beginners to folks with 15+ years of brewing experience, the IPAlers are a great crew of enthusiastic brewers. From extract and all-grain to mead and wine—you are sure to find like-minded brewers who are eager to learn more and help you make better beer.
The Indian Peaks Alers were born out of homebrew classes led by Don Blake held at Left Hand Brewing. Several people were eager to do more with brewing and were excited to form a club…so we did! As the years have gone by, membership has grown as well as the variety of fun things we do.
Second Wednesday of the month at Left Hand Brewing, 6-8pm. Venue changes occasionally, check the website for updates.
We host the Peak-to-Peak ProAm, an annual event featuring several of Colorado’s finest breweries who pick GABF ProAm recipes from the Gold-medal winning beers. In years past, we’ve had the following breweries on hand: Left Hand, Oskar Blues, Avery, Pumphouse, and Crabtree. Many of the Indian Peaks Alers enter competitions regularly and have been quite successful in winning medals. Several of the IPAlers are BJCP-ranked judges and participate frequently in the many competitions held in Colorado.
Big Brew Day: Usually held at Left Hand Brewing and has served as a group brew to fill one of our barrels.
Summer picnic: A casual get-together in the heat of the summer to eat great food and cool off with a tasty brew.
Christmas party: A fantastic event with lots of great eats, a fun raffle, and a mixed 6-pack exchange.
BJCP training classes: Essential education for those interested in learning about beer styles and evaluating beers.
Barrel projects: We currently have two wine and one Stranahan’s whiskey barrel and have rotated several batches through them. The recent batches include a Belgian Quad, Foreign Export Stout with sour cherries, English Barleywine, and a Belgian Golden Strong.
