Waiting for the snow to fall. F

or climbers, bikers and runners, the warm fall temperatures have undoubtedly been welcomed with joy. Snow sports enthusiasts, however, are likely feeling the snow will never reach us. 

Last winter was especially memorable for me. My 5-year-old son strapped on skis for the first time. Ever since he was born, I pictured in my mind what it would be like to ski with my kids. I’ve been fortunate to have some incredible powder days under my belt, but going out with Auggie for the first time definitely took the cake. As the ski resorts along I-70 have become incredibly difficult to get to in a reasonable time frame, the close proximity of Eldora is a huge blessing.

After recently welcoming our fourth child into the world, I know my days on the hill will be fewer than they used to be, but I am ok with that. I’m just biding my time. It won’t be long at all before all my little rippers are following Dad down the hill, bombing down steeps, and laughing so hard in knee deep powder that our guts all hurt.

Wherever your winter adventure takes you, make the most of every turn, jump, climb and breath of clean mountain air.

FRENCH TWIST FOOD TRUCK GOES GOURMET A new food truck is picking up speed in the Boulder area with a menu that you’d expect from a high-end restaurant. The French Twist Food Truck features classic fare, including duck confit, escargot, Frog Provencal and crepes. Owners Michael and Lori DeBoer purchased the Cheese Louise Truck from the group that also operates the Verde Truck and Verde Restaurant in Boulder and dubbed it “Louise” in homage. They spent several months and thousands of dollars refurbishing the 1984 truck, including the addition of a lemon-yellow paint job, a new engine and a new floor before launching in July.  The addition of wooden serving doors gives it a French cottage look.  Everything on the truck—including sauces and dressings—is made from scratch.  The duck confit is cured overnight and slow-roasted at a low temperature for hours. The menu also features a selection of gluten-free items, including buckwheat crepes, as well as the deep-fried Frogs Provencal ($7), whose batter is gluten free. The truck serves business parks in Boulder and Gunbarrel for lunch and taprooms and tasting rooms in the evenings, including The Bitter Bar, Upslope Brewing Company, J&L Distilling and Liquid Mechanics.

What's Cooking?

T

hanksgiving is all about family, traditions and food. Each year we celebrate holidays like Thanksgiving and incorporate traditions that have often times been passed down from generation to generation, and usually recipes fall under this category. So for this holiday season we decided to feature a not-so-typical “Thanksgiving” option that is also a comfort food we all know so well – pasta. What better person to show us the way to make pasta “outside of the box” than Italian native Alessandro Polo, an 8th generation family member of the famed Lo Stella Ristorante. This restaurant has two homes, the original restaurant that has been operating in Portofino, Italy since 1850, and now Denver is home to its own version right in the Golden Triangle Neighborhood. Alessandro has a simple request to restaurant goers, “Please don’t ask me for alfredo sauce, meatball spaghetti or chicken in the pasta, we are Italian for real!” Italian for real is right. Some recipes included on the authentic menu have been passed down from previous generations. Like the Tagliatelle della “Nonna Laura,” the bolognese sauce and pesto. With Alessandro’s permission, we got an insider look into Lo Stella’s kitchen, where chef Luca Pascarella showed us how to make handmade pasta from scratch. If you can’t manage it yourself, stop by Lo Stella Ristorante to get a taste of Italy’s handmade recipes. But we encourage you to give it a try. Maybe this could become your family’s new tradition.

HANDMADE TAGLIATELLE DELLA "NONNA LAURA" INGREDIENTS

1. Combine semolina flour, unbleached white flour and salt in medium mixing bowl.  2. In the bowl or on a clean surface, make a mountain out of flour mixture then make a deep well in center. Break the eggs into the well and add olive oil. Whisk eggs very gently with a fork, gradually incorporating flour from the sides of the well. When mixture becomes too thick to mix with a fork, begin kneading with your hands. 3. Knead dough for 10 minutes or until dough is elastic. Wrap dough in a towel or places in plastic bad and let rest for 20-25 minutes.  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough with a pasta machine or rolling pin to desired thickness.  5. To cut pasta by hand, cut each pasta sheet into 10-inch lengths. Brush lightly with flour, roll up sheet, and, using a sharp knife, cut into 1/4-inchwide strips; unroll. Use tagliatelle immediately, or dry on a floured work surface and store in an airtight container for up to three days. 6. Alternatively, use pasta machine and choose to make another style of pasta. 7. Bring large pot of water to boil and cook 3-5 minutes. Fresh pasta takes considerably less time to cook, so keep a close eye on it.   CONTINUED >

Choose Your Own (Food) Adventure WILD STANDARD BRINGS AN EXCITING RESTAURANT TREND TO COLORADO ARTICLE ALLYSON REEDY | PHOTOGRAPHY HEIRLOOMSNAPS

T

he dining out experience is in need of a shakeup. You choose a restaurant, read a menu, eat what you order, and go home. Sure, you (hopefully) get something better than what would have come out of your home kitchen and you save yourself the dishes, but the concept is the same whether you go to an Italian or modern American eatery. Enter Wild Standard, the latest restaurant from one of Boulder County’s most celebrated chefs, Bradford Heap (Colterra, Salt). Wild Standard is a seafood restaurant, but it isn’t just any seafood restaurant. It’s an hors d’oeuvres party, an interactive dining experience, a choose-your-own food adventure waiting to unfold. Let me explain. While it does have a short, traditional menu of small plates and main courses, the hook of Wild Standard is that the menu changes every day and is presented to diners visually via carts and trays circling the dining room. Dim sum devotees will be familiar with this ‘eye it before you buy it’ practice, but the fare at Heap’s new restaurant goes far beyond dumplings and buns. On a recent visit, mussel burger sliders, ahi poke with tarot chips, an heirloom tomato and burrata salad, pan-seared halibut with potato puree, lobster gnocchi and grouper crudo with jalapeños and togarashi were just a small sampling of the options that were carried or wheeled by our table. Each night, depending on how buzzing the restaurant is, anywhere from 18 to 25 cart items will make their way from the kitchen to each table, all inspired by whatever seafood is flown in that day or whatever is growing in the garden.

36

Boulder Lifestyle | November 2015

Of course you don’t have to sample the daily creations, or even see them (but what’s the fun in that?). If you’d rather stick to the main menu, you simply flip over your oyster shell to signal that you’d like to skip out on the cart service. And you’d be forgiven, as the permanent menu, although small, is full of winners. Start with the kaya toast, one of the best $5 you can spend. Kaya means ‘rich’ in the Malay language, and the sweetness of the coconut jam and creaminess of a crowning fried egg don’t disappoint. The Pok Pok chicken ($16) is a fantastic choice of main, even if it doesn’t come from the sea. The sweet and spicy East Asian flavors are spot on and CONTINUED > enhanced by local greens and sweet basil.

(CONTINUED)

But my favorite dishes of the night came from the carts. The flash-fried cauliflower over red curry sauce ($4) was crispy and well-seasoned, offering the right amount of spice and a new texture that proves cauliflower just might be the most versatile veggie out there. The grouper crudo with jalapeños and togarashi ($12) was delicious. The lightness of the fish paired with the pepper’s heat and spicy umami flavor of the togarashi (a Japanese spice blend of chilies, sesame and seaweed) made for the perfect mouthful. The drinks are also enticing and far-flung in terms of their inspiration. The Siren Call is a build-your-own exotic drink based around flavor profiles from three different regions. First you choose your region – from Pacific Northwest, China or India. I chose the Northwest’s blend of cherries and juniper – then the drink’s strength (no, low or heavy alcohol). Finally, you pick your favorite spirit, or hand it over to the bartender to choose a winning concoction for you. My bourbon mix was definitely winning, and at $8 not a bad deal in the world of overpriced craft cocktails. Wild Standard’s menu and concept are so unique and interesting that it changes the way you eat. Their goal is to encourage people to eat differently, and they’re succeeding. With the tray and cart system I certainly tried things that, if on a traditional menu, I would have read over and passed on. (Grouper crudo? No, thank you.) Stop in and let them shake up your dining experience too. WILD STANDARD

"THE NUTCRACKER" GETS A MAKEOVER

ARTICLE KEELEY MAHANES

I

f you grew up in Boulder, you grew up with the knowledge that the Boulder Ballet’s annual Nutcracker performance was not to be missed. As a dancer, I always admired the professionalism, magnitude and grace of their Christmas-time performance, and noticed that non-dancers appreciated this annual treat just as much, or more, than I did. Boulder Ballet is a common name in dancer and non-dancer households alike and it’s no wonder there’s such a buzz surrounding their fresh interpretation of The Nutcracker for 2015. Sitting down with the Marketing Manager Erin Tunbridge and Executive Director Wrenn Combs to grasp the significance of this years’ performance was nothing short of a dream come true for the young dancer still inside me.

WHAT IS THE MOST EXCITING/MOST DIFFERENT ASPECT OF THE “NEW” NUTCRACKER?

“When we started the meetings to redesign the sets more than one and a half years ago, the realization struck us how all-encompassing ‘NEW’ would be. These sets are breathtaking and so different—patrons will be transported to a magical experience from beginning to end. Strikingly different will be the choreography. Lance Hardin, the new associate artistic director, said, “The opportunity to set new choreography allows me to engage with many dancers for the first time, which offers exciting creative memories.” Live music is provided by the Boulder Philharmonic Orchestra who will, for the first time, be under the baton of Principal Guest Conductor Gary Lewis.” 44

Boulder Lifestyle | November 2015

WHY WAS THE DECISION MADE TO COMPLETELY MAKE OVER THE CLASSIC PERFORMANCE?

“This production is not a complete makeover of the classic performance. It’s our interpretation of this classic ballet, with new sets, new choreography, new costumes, new dancers and even new characters all intertwined within the tradition and familiar music of Tchaikovsky for the beloved Nutcracker.” WHAT CAN THE AUDIENCE EXPECT FROM THE SET THIS YEAR?

“The new sets are so different from the sets/scenery we’ve been using for the last 20 years. The set designer, Susan Crabtree, said in our initial meeting, ‘I am not your candy cane and cupcake set designer for Land of the Sweets. I want to design the unexpected for those that think they have seen everything when it comes to The Nutcracker.’ Many hours have been spent thinking through how to best bring to life the artistic vision of then Co-Artistic Directors Ana Claire and Peter Davison.” WHAT CAN THE AUDIENCE EXPECT FROM THE NEW CHOREOGRAPHY THIS YEAR?

“Ana Claire (Artistic Director) and Lance Hardin (Associate Artistic Director), along with Amy Earnest (Assistant School Director) are the choreographers this year. Mr. Hardin and Ms. Earnest are new to Boulder Ballet and have brought a fresh approach to the possibilities. The role of Drosselmeyer in our production is much larger and magical than in most, and Peter Davison will be reprising the role (with a


few new twists) of the character he played for many years. Our production is quite theatrical; filled with new takes on traditional characters and whimsical journeys into the heart of this holiday classic.” COULD YOU EXPLAIN THE GRAVITY OF THIS PROJECT FOR ANYONE THAT HAS NOT EVER SEEN THE

NUTCRACKER? “Regardless of whether you’ve seen The Nutcracker before, the undertaking of creating new sets is far more involved than one would think. This is probably why very few ballet companies have sets designed specifically for their productions. The new sets will be part of our history, and a gift to the community, for the next 20 years. Consideration was given to the unique configuration of the stage at Macky Auditorium and how the artistic vision could marry with the size and technical restrictions of the historic venue. The Nutcracker is not a simple production; there are six different scenes that must be accommodated, each requiring a change in the set.” The Boulder Ballet’s The Nutcracker has been a long-standing tradition for the Boulder community, where volunteers feel grateful to be a part of it, sponsors are honored to donate to it, and young dancers dream of their opportunity to perform in the holiday classic. The sense of community that the performance brings to the Boulder and Boulder County areas cannot be measured, but needs to be experienced. For the first time, Boulder Ballet is giving back to its sponsors by inviting them to watch the full dress rehearsal where the breathtaking new look will be unveiled for the first time. Boulder Ballet recognizes the importance of celebrating the groups and individuals who helped make these new sets possible and is looking forward to showing its gratitude through the experience of the intimate and raw dress rehearsal.  Everyone associated with Boulder Ballet feels the anticipation and buildup of excitement that comes with such a beloved tradition and invites you to join in the excitement of beginning the holiday season with Boulder Ballet’s new interpretation of The Nutcracker. Dates at Macky Auditorium (on the CU campus) with the Boulder Philharmonic include November 27, 28 & 29. Please visit BoulderBallet.org for ticket information. Also at Vance Brand Auditorium with the Longmont Symphony on December 5 & 6. Tickets available through the Longmont Symphony, 303.772.5796. November 2015 | Boulder Lifestyle

Keystone Resort

Aaron Dodds, Keystone Resort

DAY TRIP: KEYSTONE Short on time but looking for your mountain fix this winter? Keystone’s easy access from Boulder makes it an ideal choice for a quick day trip to the mountains. Nestled just off I-70, Summit County’s largest ski resort boasts more skiable acres than you could ever cover in a day trip– plus 20 lifts, two gondolas, five back bowls and an award-winning terrain park. Whether you’re looking for mellow cruisers or more advanced hike-to terrain, you’ll find it here. EARLY SEASON TURNS

Don’t wait too long to dust the mothballs off your winter gear– Keystone opens for the 2015 season on November 6th. Join the party starting at 9 a.m. with DJs, contests, giveaways, and more. FUEL UP

Stop at Inxpot on your way to the gondola, the centrally located cafe is a local’s favorite for morning caffeine fixes (and afternoon beer fixes). Grab a Popeye breakfast burrito to go so you don’t risk missing first chair. SAVE YOUR LEGS

Hop on Keystone’s cat for easy access to advanced terrain in back bowls. Reservations aren’t needed, but a wallet is– the trip costs $10 cash. MOONLIGHT SKI

Make turns under a star-filled sky this winter at the largest night skiing venue in Colorado. Crisp mountain air, shooting stars, you, and the snow– a match made in heaven.

Hiking Highland's Bowl, Courtesy Aspen Snowmass

Courtesy Aspen Snowmass, Aspen Highland's Cloud 9

WEEKEND GETAWAY: ASPEN What happens in Aspen, stays in Aspen, so bring your dancing shoes and pack your snow pants– there are memories waiting to be made. A short four-hour drive from Boulder, Aspen is the perfect weekend getaway. Just far enough off the beaten path known as I-70, crowds are smaller, lift lines are shorter, and four mountains offer something for everyone. DANCE BREAK

Aspen is known for great parties, and they start at Aspen Highland’s Cloud Nine. The European-inspired, mid-mountain restaurant is not your average lunch spot– they’re known for fondue and raclette, not to mention daytime dance parties. You’re likely to see A-List celebrities here popping bottles of bubbly in the afternoon. Just don’t be surprised if they end up dancing on your table. Tip: Hit it at around 2 p.m. for the peak of the party. OBLIGATORY PHOTO BREAK

You’ve just worked your butt off hiking Highland’s Bowl, now what? Obligatory selfie, obviously. From the top of Lodge Peak lift, hike about 45 minutes to access the bowl. Opinions vary on the best time to hike and ski the bowl–a powder day means you’ll want to get there early–but afternoons on sunny days can be great. Take in the views (they’re worth the hike in itself), make some turns, and head straight to après at the Highlands Alehouse for a beer or three– you’ve earned it. LIVE IN THE LAP OF LUXURY

Aspen’s premier hotel offers all the luxurious amenities you’d expect, with some pretty amazing ski-focused perks. Forget mints on your pillow, we’re talking first tracks here! Guests staying at the Limelight can sign up for first tracks every Friday (first come, first serve for up to five guests), getting dibs on freshly groomed corduroy, or even the holy grail of snow­– untouched pow. Not a morning person? Try last tracks (sweep the mountain at closing with ski patrol) or inside tracks (cruise the mountain with a mountain pro) instead. Bonus: Start your day off right with expanded continental breakfast. You won’t find junky cereals here (this is Aspen, after all)– homemade granola, smoothies, and frittatas will give you enough fuel to make turns all day. CONTINUED >

WINTER VACATION: BANFF With a little more time to spare, a trip to Canada’s Banff National Park is the ultimate winter getaway. Take a direct two-hour flight from Denver to Calgary, then make the easy–and breathtaking–drive to the park. The town of Banff is situated within the park’s limits and makes a great basecamp to explore the region. Locals love an active, healthy lifestyle but that doesn’t mean you won’t find great food and cocktails. STAY IN A CASTLE

A stay at the Fairmont banff springs, built in 1888, is as close to living in a castle as most of us will get. Sit on a hillside overlooking town, the high-end hotel takes service as seriously as it does a good spa day. The Willow Streams Spa (rated as No.1 Hotel Spa by Travel + Leisure) has three waterfall treatment whirlpools and a European mineral pool to relax and rejuvenate you after a long day in the mountains. POWDER OR BUST

Mt. Norquay, Sunshine Village, and Lake Louise Ski Resorts are all located within the park’s boundary, which means vistas are jaw-dropping. For quick afternoon turns, Mt. Norquay is your best bet– hourly lift tickets start at $43 for two hours. Hop on a shuttle to spend the day at Sunshine Village where you can ski along the Continental Divide from early November through late May, or make turns on Lake Louise’s 4,200 acres of terrain. Hint: Use your Mountain Collective pass at both Sunshine and Lake Louise. GET VERTICAL

Mix up your ski vacation with a day spent ice climbing on world-renowned ice. Yamnuska Mountain Adventures has all the gear and expertise you’ll need for a solid day (or half-day) of climbing whether you’re in the market for a beginner crag or more serious multi-pitch route. BACKCOUNTRY LUXURY

Mount Engadine Lodge offers the best of a backcountry ski lodge experience without the trouble of having to haul 50-pounds worth of gear in on your back. Accessed via high, winding roads that pass quintessential Canadian Rockies landscapes, the full-service lodge has everything you need to relax – except your favorite TV shows. AIR TIME

Get ready to fill your powder quota for the season. Rent a car and drive west into British Columbia to spend four days at CMH K2 Rotor Lodge where you’ll be served powder for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The terrain is known for being a tree-skiers dream with plenty of pillow lines and no shortage of face shots. Vert is guaranteed, so you don’t waste money on days when weather keeps the heli grounded. Best perk of all– a trip to CMH K2 Rotor lodge means you’re getting a free pair of K2 skis. CONTINUED >

FOR THE NON SKIER: GLENWOOD HOT SPRINGS APRES WITHOUT THE SKI

Pumping more than three and a half million gallons of mineral rich water out of the earth per day, Glenwood Hot Springs Pool is truly the gift that keeps on giving. If being on a cold mountain all day is not your fancy, then perhaps soaking in the warm, soothing waters are up your alley. Since 1888, Glenwood Hot Springs Lodge is still the most desirable overnight option in town. Aside from being steps from the hot springs, unlimited pool access and a full hot breakfast included are very enticing. To top it all off, the luxurious Spa of the Rockies is also located on the resort grounds. Yes, everything you need for a weekend of theraputic bliss is ready for you at the Glenwood Hot Springs Pool & Lodge. HotSpringsPool.com NORDIC DOES A BODY GOOD

While Sunlight Mountain Ski Resort might not be on the Epic Pass, this little mountain that could offers some stellar options if you are looking for a break from downhill skiing. Sunlight's Nordic area offers 29 kilometers of groomed cross country and snowshoe trails. Beginning, intermediate and advanced trails wind their way through a gorgeous high valley called Babbish Gulch, flanked by Sunlight Mountain and the 10,300 foot Williams Peak.

Get up, Get Out and Let It Snow ARTICLE CRYSTAL SAGAN | COURTESY PHOTOS

For Junior: 1. Line Gizmo $300 Little rippers tend to be hard on gear, so Line reinforced these kid-approved planks with an extra thick base and edges to last. Whether they are learning the difference between pizza and french fry, or already giving dad a run for his money, the fiberglass-reinforced Aspen wood core gives the Gizmo just the right amount of responsiveness without being too heavy.

2. Patagonia Down Sweater Jacket $119 Keep the kiddos warm on winter adventures–from building snowmen to learning to ski–with this essential down layer. Filled with responsibly farmed 600-fill down and treated with DWR for water resistance, the windproof Down Sweater lets kids be kids, but outside. Available in boys and girls.

3. Full Tilt Growth Spurt $200 Buying new gear every year for growing kids can be a pain, but Full Tilt has a plan so you can spend that money on something better. The Growth Spurt has adjustable sizing to keep kids skiing in them for more than one season. Shell adjusts to grow up to three sizes bigger as kid’s feet grow, and neoprene liner stretches to fit bigger feet.

4. Smith Sidekick Goggles $30 These are a necessity for your little shredder. Comfy foam padding, fashionable designs and Fog-X anti-fog treatment lenses to keep the mountain view crystal clear.

5. Giro Nine Snow Helmet $90 Do not go out on the mountain without head protection. The tough polycarbonate shell is fused with an impact-protecting inside foam liner, and also is lightweight with great ventilation to stay cool.

6. Spyder Youth Overweb Ski Glove $45 Perfect insulation to keep little fingers warm and dry. Has adjustable wrist strap and chamude nose wipe on the thumb that's soft to the touch.

Boulder Lifestyle | November 2015


1. Volkl RTM 86 UVO $1175 Like a fine-tuned sports car, the RTM is built for performance. 3D Ridge technology forms a raised central ridge on the ski, giving it just the right amount of flex and torsional rigidity without adding extra weight, so edge-to-edge transitions are smooth in any conditions. The RTM comes standard with the WideRide XL 12.0 binding system. 2. Dakine Leather Titan Glove $75 Keep your digits warm and dry this winter with this uber-warm GoreTex glove. Reinforced leather palm adds durability, and waterproof shell helps keep hands dry. Keep your gloves on for nimble tasks, thanks to articulated fingers, and use stash pocket for a heat pack on extra-chilly days. Bonus: Touch screen compatible.

3. The North Face FuseForm Brigandine Jacket $499 & Pant $399 The Brigandine begs for adventure. Waterproof,

For Him:

breathable, and fully seam taped, it’s ready for any weather you throw at it. High-traction areas are seamlessly reinforced for durability, and HyVent fabric with four-way stretch lets you move freely. Jacket is designed to be worn with a pack, so pockets are accessible even with a hipbelt fastened, and pants feature phone-specific pockets designed to keep moisture out.

4. Outdoor Research UberLayer Hooded Jacket $299 The UberLayer does it all– first chair at Vail, hikes in the backbowls, après, and powder days. Polartec Alpha (a water resistant and compressible insulation) and a nylon shell join forces to create a midlayer that breathes and keeps you warm, even when wet.

5. K2 Spyne 110 High-performance meets versatility in K2’s Spyne 110. A forgiving flex available in three different lasts (for skinny, normal, and wide feet) means you’ll be shredding hard all day. You won’t loose extra energy in power transfer from foot to ski, thanks to four buckles plus a serious power strap, and Intuition liner is the icing on the cake.

6. Lululemon Metal Vent Tech  Thermal Crew & Tight $78 each Lets face it, baselayers can get stinky. Luckily the folks at Lululemon are working to out-smart odor causing bacteria with Silverscent technology, so your next-to-skin layer is less likely to offend your better half. Sweat-wicking fabric moves moisture quickly to keep you dry and chafe-resistant seams are kept out of the way.

1. K2 OoolaLuv 85Ti $850 K2 women’s skis are on point. With a dedicated women’s research and development program, they’ve been able to really get down to the nitty-gritty of what women want (from their skis, at least). OoolaLuv is perfect for resort adventures, and shaped for easy turn initiation, responsiveness, and versatility.

2. Flylow Vixen Coat $320 & Donna Pant $315 Flylow fit’s great– fitted where you want them to be, but enough room to have full range of motion. Made of a softshell fabric thats super breathable and completely waterproof, the Vixen Coat and Donna Pant will keep you warm, dry, and looking fly in the best and worst of weather you’ll find this season.

3. The North Face Desolation Hybrid Jacket $199 Swapping layers is a pain, so adding a hybrid midlayer like the Desloation can be a game changer. Super breathable four-way stretch material under the arms moves sweat out almost as quickly as it’s generated, and PrimaLoft Silver Insulation on the chest and back keeps you warm so you’re warm when temps drop.

4. Salomon Quest Access Custom Heat W $600 Tired of having cold feet? The Quest is your new best friend. Built-in batteries heat liners to keep your tootsies warm for up to 18 hours. Custom moldable liners fit like a dream, and adjusting heat levels between three options lets you pick the perfect temp. You’ll be so warm you won’t even want to stop for lunch.

5. Corbeaux Silverqueen Long Sleeve $98 & Jackpot Pant $90 Aspen-based Corbeaux makes eco-friendly baselayers built for performance. Details like watch peek-a-boo hole on the sleeve and anti-muffin top pants (yes, really) will leave you looking for any excuse to wear these. Made from a bamboo blend, the Silverqueen and Jackpot are super soft and have natural anti-bacterial and anti-stink properties.

6. Oakley Flight Deck XM $210 The Flight Deck gets a face lift for this season– debuting a slightly smaller frame size–but still provides a wide field of vision. Thanks to Prizm technology one lens can handle a wide variety of conditions, so you’ll spend less time fumbling with lenses and more time making turns.

Ripple Effect 5 Non-profits Making a Difference ARTICLE EMILY O'BRIEN

on-profits function as bridges between the public and affordable products and services—things not always readily available to all pockets of the population. By maximizing resources in order to solve pressing issues, non-profits tap into their surplus revenues and use funds to further attain their driving purpose or mission. While the non-profit backdrop is vast and wide, all play imperative roles in our local and global society. One thing is self-evident: non-profits revolve around improving the quality of life, which is a very good thing. Here are five of the lesser known non-profits in our neighborhood.

The Kitchen Community (TKC) was established in 2011 by Hugo Matheson and Kimbal Musk, the owners of The Kitchen family of restaurants. TKC believes in "community through food" by creating a future where every student


has the opportunity to play, learn and grow in healthy communities. To build a better world for students, TKC builds Learning Gardens in schoolyards, primarily in high-risk areas, to provide an engaging outdoor classroom; thriving fruit, vegetable and flower gardens; and a gathering place for the whole community. In less than four years since it was founded, TKC has built almost 250 Learning Gardens in schools around the country in four major regions including Colorado, Chicago, Los Angeles and Memphis reaching over 135,000 students everyday.

Believing that every student has a right to become a well-rounded citizen, Future Arts Foundation is doing everything it can to make it happen by supporting two Colorado public schools each month to ensure they have the music and arts supplies they need.

And they are making a difference. Whether that’s giving a voice or hand up to someone in need, offering a sliver of a brighter future or showing compassion to someone during a difficult period in life, non-profits are rich resources available in our own backyard.

Usually on snow, preferably somewhere really remote.” Quick-fire: • On-piste or off-piste? Um, seriously? • Bluebird or whiteout? Whiteout. • First chair or last chair?  Both. • Vail or Aspen?

So, unfortunately a lot of people are getting hurt.” Quick-fire: On-piste or off-piste? Both! Bluebird or whiteout? Sun is bad for snow quality but great for visibility, while white out makes for great tree skiing.  • First chair or last chair? Both! • Vail or Aspen? Depends on who has better snow at the time and what you want out of your trip. Aspen as a town and Vail has a resort.  • Summer hobby? Biking. • Hike to or Heli?

amie engerbreston – professional skier

kaylin richardson – past olympic team member/professional skier What kind of physical training do you do off the mountain?  “I try to do a lot of strength/endurance-based training, as well as flexibility pre-hab and yoga for injury prevention. I spent years in the gym as a ski racer so I prefer to train in the mountains whether it is hiking, trail/interval running, or mountain biking, but I still get into the gym at least once or twice a week to build strength and power.” What kind of mental training do you do on and off the mountain?  “Positive self-talk and visualization go hand in hand. It is invaluable to have the skill and confidence to see in your mind’s eye how you will ski a line or do a trick effortlessly. Then once you have to execute, it is like you have already completed it successfully in your head.” 66

What kind of physical training do you do off the mountain? “I do a lot of barre style workouts, as I am an instructor at The Bar Effect in Truckee. I also spend as much time as possible on my mountain bike. The uphill is killer physical training and the downhill is great mental training. In addition to all this I run, hike, paddle board, surf (when I can) and do yoga.” What kind of mental training do you do on and off the mountain? “There is always something to be working on mentally for me whether it is confidence, fear management or focus. After an avalanche incident a couple years ago, I was definitely struggling, so I went to trauma counseling and it really helped. I did physical therapy for my knee injury from the incident, so it made sense to do some mind therapy, too. Now, both knee and mind are great.” What would you say is the biggest trend in skiing/riding right now? “I think a lot is changing in skiing right now, especially where ski media is concerned. Athletes are really trying to figure out how to be and stay relevant and please as wide an audience as possible.” Quick-fire:  • On-piste or off-piste? OFF! • Bluebird or whiteout? Bluebird with smiles! • First chair or last chair? Both–bell to bell! • Vail or Aspen? Aspen, • Summer hobby? Mountain biking. • Hike to or Heli? Heli! But we all know I will hike when I have too.

What would you say is the biggest trend in skiing/riding right now? “Sustainability. Our winters are at risk due to the effects of climate change and every day athletes, business owners, and snow-lovers are investing in renewable energy and using their voices to demand the government prioritize this huge crisis.” Quick-fire: • On-piste or off-piste? Both. I just love skiing. • Bluebird or whiteout? Bluebird. • First chair or last chair? First chair in the winter, last in the spring. • Vail or Aspen? I don’t discriminate when it comes to worldclass skiing. • Summer hobby? Trail running, followed by reading, followed by napping equals a day well spent. • Hike to or Heli?  Hike.

Commuting by Bike in the Winter

Don't store away your bike quite yet. Here are 10 essentials you'll need to survive the winter months ahead. or the past five years, I’ve biked to work all year, no matter the ARTICLE ADAM PERRY

F

weather. Boulder doesn’t get all that much snow, but we do get a significant amount of below-zero days, black ice, blizzards and freezing rain. Biking through all that – generally in the dark – is not easy, but it sure is fun. The following, in my opinion, are the 10 essentials for commuting by bike in the winter:

1. A DECENT HELMET, TO AVOID RAIN, SNOW, SLEET, MUD, ETC. FROM FALLING THROUGH AND TO PREVENT YOUR BRAINS FROM FALLING OUT

My first winter of commuting by bike in Colorado, I wiped out on Folsom Street on a patch of ice while biking up to the University of Colorado to play drums with the Yawpers on Radio 1190. At the time, I did not own a helmet. Luckily, I only suffered seriously bruised knees and still made the gig. But my boss, an attorney who also regularly commutes by bike in all conditions, was concerned and bought me a Bern Brentwood as a Christmas gift. Durable and sleek, it’s still my go-to winter helmet and is a relatively inexpensive option. 2. WATERPROOF, WINDPROOF GLOVES

Bern Brentwood Helmet with Visor $79.95

There is absolutely no reason to spend more than $20 on gloves for commuting by bike in the winter. Instead of struggling with $150 gloves that either get too soaked when wet or literally freeze your hands by letting too much wind through, head to McGuckin Hardware in Boulder and grab some big, ugly, comfortable work gloves for $14. They keep hands dry and warm in any conditions, and wrap nicely around the flat bars of a mountain bike. 3. A DO-IT-ALL SWEATSHIRT

Fox River Ragg Gripper Glove $9.99 70

Boulder Lifestyle | November 2015

Walking around Philadelphia while on a business trip two years ago, it got cold. Real cold. I ducked into a random store and for $15 I bought a ridiculous black hoodie lined with what looks like black wolf fur. It was probably aimed at fledging rappers, not cyclists, but no matter the temperature, I feel almost too warm inside my “wolf jacket.” Find something that keeps you warm and dry and hold on to it.

Patagonia’s All-Weather Zip-Neck Hoody $69.00


4. WATER-RESISTANT SOCKS

DexShell DexShell Waterproof Coolvent Lite Cycling Sock $26.65

Get some and, as Lieutenant Dan says in Forrest Gump, “Try and keep your feet dry.” Keeping your feet warm and dry is the key to keeping your whole body toasty.  5. SNOW TIRES OR CHAINS

After three years of surviving on cross tires, which worked alright but resulted in repeated slipping incidents on ice, I had the well-respected Full Cycle in Boulder install big Continental Mountain Kings on my winter bike; $60 for two tires that should last a few years is a no-brainer. 6. SKI MASK

When biking several miles in freezing temperatures, it’s imperative to have a mask of some kind (a decent one is about $9) to avoid not only burned nostrils but a lingering inability to speak once you’ve arrived at work or school.

Big Continental Mountain King Tires $60.00

TopHeadwear GI Waffle Ribbed Ski Mask $9.95

7. CHAIN LUBE

When riding through snow, sleet and the slushy aftermath, your bike is going to get very dirty. Letting that slush cover your chain and gears day after day without cleaning is a terrible idea; it will cause rust and jam your gears. Regularly hose down and wipe off your entire bike, or you could realistically need a new bike after one winter if you’re biking every day. 8. REAR AND FRONT LIGHTS

For $60 you can buy a decent USB-rechargeable front light that will last many years. This is an absolute necessity. Suitable rear lights – just as important – can be found for less than a good latte. 9. FRONT AND REAR FENDERS Blackburn Click Rear Light $14.99

You don’t have to deal with a stripe of mud on the back of your pants and slush spraying in your Green Oil Ecological face while cycling to and from Chain Lube $8.00 work. If you have a mountain bike, get some plastic front and rear fenders. It’s incredibly cheap, easy and effective. If you have a road bike, you’ll probably have to spend a little more to get decent wraparound fenders, but it’s worth it for comfort and safety—plus it’s a sleek look. 10. COURAGE, RESILIENCE AND COMMITMENT, OR JUST A SCREW LOOSE

Blackburn Scorch Light USB $69.99

SKS Grand M.O.M and Grand D.A.D Bicycle Fenders $29.99 & $34.99

Even in a liberal, ostensibly progressive town like Boulder I get honked at and yelled at while biking in snow. If you bike in winter, you’ll need the ability to endure harsh conditions and ignore rude drivers. But you’ll save money, feel healthier, arrive where you’re going with a clearer head, and also have your spirits raised occasionally by an encouraging pedestrian. Be safe out there.

oulder Food Rescue is reshaping the face of hunger in our community, one pedal at a time. Did you know that one in six people in the United States is food insecure? This means they may not know where their next meal is coming from, or they may not have access to the right nutrition in their diet. According to Feed America, 48.1 million Americans lived in food-insecure households last year. This is not only a national issue, but a local one as well. Boulder Food Rescue works with the local city council to research food waste in the community and collaboratively designs strategies and tactics to address the issue. It’s on a mission to create a more just and less wasteful food system. In a nutshell, it facilitates the sustainable redistribution

HOW YOU CAN HELP

Great ways to help are by donating funds and volunteering. There’s also Feast of Fermentation on November 7th— an evening filled with tasty fermented treats from local producers, including cheese, wine and beer at The Boulder History Museum. WHAT IS THE FOOD RESCUE ALLIANCE?

of food "waste" to agencies that feed hungry, homeless and low-income populations while educating communities about food justice. To date, it’s saved more than 1 million pounds of produce from ending up in landfills and has redirected it to feed the hungry-an incredible feat for a non-profit that’s recently hit its fourth year in business. The group identified foods that would otherwise be thrown away, but which can be diverted from the landfill. These identified foods include produce that may be damaged or blemished, and prepared food such as steamer trays of catered leftovers or day-old baked goods. This sort of very-soonto-expire edibles cannot be rescued by larger food banks that use warehouses. The Boulder Food Rescue volunteers pick up the food and then immediately transport it around town, typically within 30 minutes. About half of the food is brought to food pantries, while the other half is taken to Boulder Housing Partners’ residents as part of the Grocery Program. Food is typically consumed within 24-48 hours of delivery. To keep the system sustainable, all of the food is hauled via bicycle except in cases of extreme weather or extremely large food rescue events. Executive Director Hana Dansky says, “We transport about 1000 pounds of produce per day. We’re currently 87 percent bike powered.” You can watch the statistics of how much food has been redistributed on its website’s real-time data page. Because of the Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act, donors are protected from liability except in cases of “gross negliPO Box 284 gence or intentional misconduct,” which allows Boulder Boulder Food Rescue to operate in a very direct and efficient 720.4455.BFR manner. Thus filling the gap on food waste and BoulderFoodRescue.org filling the mouths of hungry people in need.

moothies are a tasty and healthy way to start the day (but they don’t need to be limited to mornings). Blending fruits, vegetables and other “add-ins” can create a nutritious meal replacement, snack or treat. We suggest starting with fruits and veggies (spinach and kale work well and won’t make your smoothie any less sweet), moving onto a liquid base and topping off with one of these five super-healthy superfoods. Bee Pollen - Bee pollen collects on bees and is harvestable from the hive. Pollen is protein-rich (40 percent) and contains numerous vitamins, amino acids and folic acid. Bee pollen aids in digestive health and is shown to combat asthma and allergy symptoms

when harvested from a local hive. To ensure that your bee pollen stays as nature intended, serve at room temperature. Heating can kill many beneficial nutrients. Goji Berries - Goji berries come from a Chinese shrub. By weight, goji berries have more vitamin C than any other food. They also contain amino acids, antioxidants and beta-carotene, which improves the quality and appearance of skin. These berries have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years in hopes of promoting overall nutrition and increasing life span. Spirulina - Derived from blue-green algae, spirulina has been consumed for centuries by those hoping to reap the benefits of this


water-dwelling bacteria. Spirulina contains protein, B vitamins, and iron (11 percent of your daily value in just one tablespoon) as well as numerous antioxidants. Spirulina has been shown to aid premenstrual symptoms and even increase fertility. Cacao Nibs - The cacao bean grows primarily in South America. Cacao beans contain antioxidants, magnesium and a whopping 36 percent of your daily fiber intake in just one ounce. Cacao nibs have been shown to aid depression and promote cardiovascular health. Raw foods are best; be sure the cacao you choose is labeled as "raw" for maximum effectiveness.  Chia Seeds - Chia seeds, like cacao nibs, are native to South America. Chia seeds are one of the most nutritious foods on the

planet, containing antioxidants, fiber, protein and a hefty amount of Omega-3s. Chia seeds can lower blood pressure and improve digestive health. Soaking chia seeds in water creates a gel-like substance that can replace eggs in certain recipes. * These superfoods are packed full of good things, but always check with a healthcare professional before consuming if pregnant, breastfeeding or on any other medications (especially blood thinners).

Hot Off The

(Letter) Press ARTICLE JANINE FRANK | PHOTOGRAPHY COLLEEN KELLY

I

n an age of burgeoning automation and ever-expanding technology, Brian Wood is taking a step back. Waaaaaay back. Wood is the owner of Dogs & Stars, a fully functional letterpress studio in East Boulder County. What began as a casual curiosity has evolved into a year-round enterprise for this self-proclaimed “type junkie.” This largely defunct process has recently re-emerged as one of many anachronisms experiencing a resurgence of interest as people crave handcrafted simplicity over speed and uniformity. It's the new era of the bygone era. The contemporary letterpress scene fits that bill in spades. It offers a unique, unpolished charm that can't be found in online font libraries. It possesses natural imperfections that don't translate to ink jet printers or digital desktops. It's funky, it's finicky and that's its hallmark. “At its best, it's going to have kind of a rustic look to it,” Wood says, pointing to a poster 78

Boulder Lifestyle | November 2015

in which each individual letter displays unique wood grains and splotchy pock marks. “I love this look. I like things that are sort of distressed and deconstructed and imperfect.” Letterpress printing originated in the 1400s, hat tip to Johannes Gutenburg, and was the predominant form of printing for about 500 years. While it's a much slower process than its modern counterparts, its artisinal rebirth can be attributed to its handmade, vintage look and one-of-a-kind craftsman qualities. “It's important to keep this kind of thing “It's important to keep this kind of thing around,” Wood says. “We're getting more attached to digital devices and sitting down around,” Wood says. “We're getting more all day and just staring at a screen. This is still hands-on, it'sto interactive and tangible. attached digital devices and sitting down It's an important piece of history.” all day and just staring at a screen. This is still hands-on, it's interactive and tangible. It's an important piece of history.”


Wood completed renovation of the Dogs & Stars studio this summer after a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund the effort. He converted his detached alley-entrance, two-car garage into a climate-controlled space with the help of more than $12,000 from crowd-funding. Prior to the remodel, Wood was limited to printing only when the weather cooperated. Optimal printing conditions require temperatures above 65 degrees. In cold and desperate times and with true dedication to the craft, Wood resorted to heating his ink discs and presses to a workable temperature with a blowtorch, a space heater and CONTINUED > sometimes a hair dryer.

“Not only is that not professional, it's ridiculous,” Wood says of his dubious resourcefulness. After one misguided incident that resulted in melted print rollers, he knew something had to change. “If I wanted to take myself seriously and want others to take me seriously and to do better work, I needed a clean slate.” The money Wood raised through his “Kickstart My Art” campaign went toward drywall for the studio as well as windows 80

Boulder Lifestyle | November 2015

and solar tubes, cabinetry, counter tops, a combo AC/heating unit and just enough quirky, rustic touches to give the studio an old-timey feel that honors the work that's produced there. Wood began his letterpress career as the former owner of Tee & Cakes Bakery in Boulder. For eight years, he and his wife Kim carefully handcrafted baked goods and coffees. Wood incorporated letterpress into the shop's marketing strategy, giving it a unique look and distinctive branding. As opposed to traditional offset printing, letterpress imparts an impression into the paper. This method of relief printing works by hand-setting the type onto a wooden tray, inking the type and then applying pressure to the paper. Once off the press, one can actually feel the “debossed” effect where the type or pattern is sunken into the paper's surface. To achieve this effect, the Dogs & Stars studio utilizes several different presses. The

smallest is a portable table-top proof printer reminiscent of the old tray-style credit card swipers . At the other end of the spectrum is a 1,200-pound Golding 10x15 platen press, which was built around 1915. This cast iron behemoth is intricately detailed with gold hand-lettering and ornate adornments. Care and maintenance of the presses can present obstacles as many of the parts are no longer made. But with the help of other local letterpress enthusiasts, Wood is able to sort out any issues. “I feel like it's a pretty small community, very niche. I rely on the more experienced printers if I have questions,” Wood says, referring to the Rocky Mountain Letterpress Society, an informal gathering of printers and hobbyists that meets every other month. From formal wedding invitations to cards, stationery and fun, poster-sized blocky mash-ups of color and fonts, letterpress is versatile enough to have mass appeal to a


broad spectrum of the population. To introduce the community to the trade, Wood has partnered with the Book Arts League, a local non-profit dedicated to preserving the historic tools and crafts of book making. The group offers regular demonstrations on lesser-known and antiquated practices such as block carving, binding, paper-making and calligraphy. Wood is also offering half- and fullday workshops out of his newly renovated studio for those who want a more in-depth understanding of this erstwhile trade. With the new studio up and running, Wood is ready to launch Dogs & Stars into a brave new world, albeit with a distinctively old world look and charm.

The Science of Sleep TAKING STOCK IN YOUR SLEEP

ARTICLE LISA GROVE | PHOTOGRAPHY ROE ANNE WHITE

“H

ow did you sleep last night?” We have all found ourselves asking this question, whether it be to our colleagues in the morning, our kids when they come downstairs for breakfast, or to guests staying in our spare bedroom. We highly value the sleeping experience of others, but we often don’t translate that to prioritizing it for ourselves. From teenagers measuring who can stay up the latest to busy professionals who think their only option for energy sustenance is daily caffeine overload, the majority of people don’t realize that lack of sleep can be the root of many other health problems. Vyga Kaufmann, Ph.D. and Natalie Whiteford, Ph.D. of Summit Behavioral Sleep Medicine here in Boulder, are here to educate the community and prove that quality, restorative sleep is an attainable luxury that everyone can enjoy.  “We are Boulder’s only clinic specializing in the field of behavioral sleep medicine,” says Kaufmann. Kaufmann and Whiteford are both licensed clinical psychologists and the founding partners of Summit Behavioral Sleep Medicine (“Summit Sleep”). The pair met while earning their doctorates in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at the University of Colorado Boulder. Upon recognizing that issues with sleep were often the top dominoes in a series of other health and quality of life issues their patients were experiencing, they opened Summit Sleep about one year ago. Kaufmann and Whiteford believe that, when a patient’s sleep problems are remedied, their lives can be transformed.

Boulder Lifestyle | November 2015

Treatment at Summit Sleep is a highly scientific, personalized option for people who have conditions like chronic insomnia. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia, or CBT-I, is a powerful treatment that is effective in the long run and encourages a healthy lifestyle versus a quick fix. “Each prescription is tailored to each person and what they’re bringing into the session,” says Whiteford. “Behavioral prescriptions” are given based on a patient’s circumstances to help them recalibrate their ability to sleep well. Kaufmann and Whiteford pride themselves on their specialized sleep training and serving as motivators for patients, encouraging them to take ownership of their sleep quality. From the initial assessment to the ongoing data tracking, Summit Sleep is dedicated to the science of sleep, being a community resource, and using principles firmly rooted in science to get their patients' sleep on track. Patients successfully treated at Summit Sleep leave with an“People understanding shouldn’tofneed theiranything nuanced other sleep than issues a comfortable and with place to sleep in order to sleep well,” Kaufmann says. the skill set and support to transform their sleep quality. 

“People shouldn’t need anything other than a comfortable place to sleep in order to sleep well,” Kaufmann says.


Whether you are an elite Boulder athlete looking to have more energy to push your physical boundaries, someone looking to maximize their health in a natural, consistently beneficial way, or anyone who finds themselves requiring that third cup of coffee in the morning to be able to speak in complete sentences, visiting Summit Sleep in Boulder can help.

SUPPORT CIRCADIAN HEALTH – GETTING IN THE RIGHT RHYTHM

1. Regulate your light exposure to match the natural day-night cycle. 2. Go to bed and get up at the same time every day – that’s including weekends. 3. Avoid blue light (i.e. laptops, smartphones) after sunset. If unavoidable, downloadable blue blocking filters are an option. 4. Eat your larger meals earlier in the day and sidestep the nighttime snacks. 5. Workout regularly but don’t do substantial aerobic before bed. **For chronic sleep issues and disrupted sleep patterns, please seek professional guidance.

OFF THE WALL PATTI DANZIG WITH WILLIAM OHS SHOWROOMS GAVE US HER EXPERT OPINION ON THE RESURFACING OF WALLPAPER. A TREND THAT'S HERE TO STAY THANKS TO MODERN UPDATES AND TIPS.

ARTICLE PATTI DANZIG

I

fell in love with wallpaper 20+ years ago in the height of the Waverly heyday when everything was a large floral scale in Patti Danzig either burgundy, navy blue or forest green. The worst part was not the papering but the removal of three coats of unprimed paper with a “paper tiger” and a garden hose. Luckily, times have changed!  Papering fell out of style for many years, but we have seen its return in many classy and elegant forms. And with its return, many questions on how to use it best. WHAT WALLPAPER DO I CHOOSE FOR A TIMELESS LOOK?

Simply put, grasscloth. Even during the years when many designers were not using wallpaper, grasscloth still held its ground. It adds more of a texture and sheen compared to a pattern, and that is why it is loved all over the world. This is not for the DIY'er because any glue that lands on its expensive surface ruins it.  Hire an expert! And understand that the seams really show because it is a natural product. This is not the right choice T hib au for a high humidity room like a bath. lt S ha n gri L Patti’s Pick: Thibault Shangri La Grasscloth a

WHAT ARE THE BEST ROOMS FOR WALLPAPER?

Some spaces naturally lead to adding a “punch” of design. The powder room is a small space that you can add many layers of colorful or textured accents without seeming overdone.  Riveted wallpaper and metallics make a small space very luxurious. Patti’s Picks: Phillip Jeffries “Copper on Elephant Manilla Hemp” with Rivets. For a colorful room: Graham and Brown’s Alannah Teal/Silver.

ilve

• Master closets and baths: Try doing one stand-out accent wall or the entire room. • Accent walls framed out with molding in a nursery: The paper can easily be replaced as your children get older. • Entire dining rooms with mural panels: Think big budget here.   • Brightening a laundry with a beautiful floral: We spend a lot of time in the laundry room—why not have an inviting space that's welcoming and makes you smile? Patti’s Pick:  For a luxurious master bath: Osbourne and Little Turquino paired with a light grey cabinet and polished nickel sconces and hardware.

If you are using a small pattern, grasscloth or other difficult to handle paper, go pro. If you have textured walls, go pro. It will make your life easier! If you have patience, smooth walls and an eye for detail, then hanging wallpaper will be a breeze.  Just make sure to get help at the wallpaper store in order to understand single versus double roll and how much paper to order. You don’t want to end up with a seam in the middle of the wall. With so many designs, patterns, colors and textures there is a wallpaper out there for any room or style. Happy hunting.

BEER Of The Month NEW PLANET LAUNCHES GLUTEN-REDUCED BEERS ARTICLE EMILY O'BRIEN

N

ew Planet is staying relevant amidst the changing face of the gluten-free industry. In recent weeks, the brewery unveiled its newest line of beer, only the two styles aren’t gluten-free like the rest of its line; they are gluten-reduced. New Planet’s traditional gluten-free beers are brewed entirely from naturally gluten-free ingredients from start to finish. Its gluten-reduced beers are brewed with barley, but have been specially

crafted to remove gluten to non-detectable levels (<10ppm). By introducing a unique enzyme to break down the gluten, it nearly eliminates it. This method of reduction retains as much traditional character as possible. Gluten-reduced beers offer a great alternative in response to market demand, which in turn make New Planet’s beer more relevant to everyone. Tread Lightly and Seclusion IPA are the two gluten-reduced beers now available, and are both session style beers. Tread Lightly is a light cream ale, which is slightly hoppier than a more traditional cream ale. (Think summer ale you’d want to drink all year round.) Its delicate citrus taste is crispy and clean. This well-balanced, easy drinking ale pairs well with meals that lean on the lighter side, such as seafood dishes and salads. Seclusion IPA has a light breadiness and is balanced with tropical fruit and a floral character. This four-times hopped India Pale Ale is brewed with light malts and then dry hopped, which gives it a hop-forward citrus note. It’s robust and aromatic with just a touch of bitterness, which goes well with ethnic foods (fajitas and curries), steaks or salty side dishes. Forgoing the bottle, the beers are packaged in aluminum cans for enhanced portability—ideal to crack open after a hike or long bike ride through the Rockies. Both are 4.9 percent ABV. Gluten-reduced is the perfect option for people trying to decrease their gluten intake. Tread Lightly and Seclusion IPA are great-tasting, refreshing alternatives to traditionally brewed, standard beers. They’re in bars and on shelves now so check them out at your favorite spot and bottoms up all my GF and GR friends!
