Been gone for awhile...
« on: January 29, 2015, 01:40:53 AM »
Hey all! I've been absent from the forum for quite awhile, and for good reason. I have finally opened my own brewery! Gold Camp Brewing Company is now a reality. I am working two full time jobs, and loving every minute of it. We've been open less than a month, but have gotten a ton of rave reviews, three write ups in the local papers, and one in a well known local beer blog. We are a tiny brewery, but have plans in the works to expand as we move forward. So, if any of you guys happen to find yourselves in Colorado Springs, stop in and say hi! AHA members will get a 10% discount. I would love to see any of you in the taproom!

Next time I am down in the Springs I will make sure to stop by. I don't get down there often but maybe this will help get me down there.

Good luck with the brewery.

Congratulations!  The family and I are going to visit relatives in Fort Collins this summer.  I'll have to add you to my brewery tour plans.
