Lifestyle Letter

Hair of the Dog W

AUGUST 2017

e’re in the heart of the dog days of summer. A time of year marked by inactivity and lethargy. It seems like life has taken a pause (or should I say, ahem, Paws.) This month’s theme is an ode to idleness. August is the final month we can embrace the summer vibe of rest and relaxation before vacation time is over. So, obviously, that means spending quality time with your pup and enjoying a brewski. (Hence the theme for this issue.) This month, we featured dog-friendly breweries and met the four-legged best friends of local brewmasters with their all-time favorite beer picks. It’s the perfect time to kick up one’s heels and enjoy a cold one. Especially with man’s best friend. Or ditch the book club and host a ladies beer night that is the ultimate girls’ night in. We also ventured to Vail and ditched the hiking boots and oversized backpack to experience the glory that is glamping. Or, if you aren’t feeling as adventurous, just stick around town where we rounded up the top three staycation destinations. The saying, ‘hair of the dog’ seems fitting enough for this letter. Because if you’re going to be jumping around sampling beers with your best friend, don’t forget to find your hangover cure.

HOW TO HOST A

Boulder Lifestyle | August 2017


W

hat’s a gal to do on a beautiful summer night here in Boulder, when the sun’s still a-shining

and the patio’s a-calling? Get together with her girls and get her craft beer on, of course! The craft beer scene in Boulder County is a delicious adventure ripe for the exploring, and a craft beer night with your best girls is the perfect way to learn about and enjoy local brews, whether you’re a newbie to craft beer or a seasoned brewmaster. Sharing craft brews with your girlfriends can be a relaxed and casual get together, an educational experience, or even a beer and food pairing fest. No matter the theme and no matter the vibe, I think we can all agree that one of the (many) things Boulder ladies do well is have fun while enjoying a local craft beer. So swap out that glass of wine for a beer stein and check out some theme ideas to take your upcoming ladies craft beer night to the next level!

SALUTE TO SUMMERTIME

A light, crisp brew on a hot summer day screams summer nights in Boulder with the girls. Stock up on brews from Wibby Brewing in Longmont, who specialize in smooth lagers, or focus on brews with a citrusy kick, like the Bootstrap Brewing Company Chillax Pineapple Gold or the Boulder Beer Company Pulp Fusion IPA or Bump ‘n’ Rind Watermelon Kolsch. Also, sample brews with refreshing seasonal twists, like the Twisted Pine Brewing Company Homeslice Cream Ale with cucumber juice. TIP!

Incorporate a craft project into your gathering. Paint personalized steins, turn growlers into centerpieces, make coasters out of bottle caps. The opportunities are endless!

PUCKER UP!

Sour beers: tart, funky, wild, and admittedly intimidating. With distinct flavors, sour beers can take some getting used to but are more than worth the effort to get acquainted with them. Ease into sampling sours with the El Gose from Avery Brewing Company, or start with a funky saison or farmhouse ale, like the Cherry Saison from Sanitas Brewing Company or Achtertuin Seizoen from The Post Brewing Company. Want to dive right in? Try the Apricot Sour or Ginger Sour from the Avery Brewing Company Botanicals & Barrels series. TIP!

“I like a craft beer night where I go home knowing something I didn’t know when I walked in the door,” says Julie Kovaleski, Director of Barley's Angels Colorado. Put together a fun trivia-style game to learn about the process for brewing a sour beer.

Their flavors are unlike any other brews but, as Wild Woods Brewery owner Erin Evans says, many people are intimidated by them and have the misconception that they always have to be exceedingly rich and heavy. Not so. The Wild Woods Brewery Ponderosa Porter is an approachable (and delicious) starter beer for someone taking their first steps to the dark side. Other great local malt-forward brews include the Upslope Brewing Company Brown Ale, the Bootstrap Brewing Company Flagstaff Amber, and the Finkel & Garf Oatmeal Milk Stout . TIP!

Psyching yourself out thinking about sampling dark brews? Turn your craft beer night into a blind beer tasting complete with a random beer line-up and blindfold yourself to dash any fears!

HOLLA AT THE HOPS!

Let that hops-loving flag fly! Pale Ales

and IPAs are abundant in Boulder, from the ever-popular Boulder Beer Company Mojo IPA to the Fate Brewing Company Moirai and ample options in between. Have your girlfriends each bring along one hoppy brew they know they like and one they’ve never tried before to get a nice mix of craft beers to sample. TIP!

“You’d be surprised at how appealing a stinky cheese and hoppy beer pairing is,” says Amy Newell-Large, Hospitality Manager at Avery Brewing Company. Think outside the box with food pairings for your party. Pickles? Fried foods? Chips and salsa? The possibilities go on and on.

DESSERT NIGHT

There’s nothing not to love about a dessert and craft beer pairing. Instead of going the classic chocolate and beer pairing route, experiment with other desserts like cheesecake, fruit parfaits, and pastries. Pair them with sweet, tart brews like the Avery Brewing Company Raspberry Sour for some truly memorable flavor combinations. TIP!

Some local brews are so decadent they’re dessert indulgences in and of themselves, like the Shake Chocolate Porter from Boulder Beer Company or the Peanut Butter Porter from Liquid Mechanics Brewing Company.

EVERY DOG HAS THEIR “HAPPY WORD.” FOR SOME, IT’S “WALK,” FOR OTHER’S IT’S “CAMP.”

C

amp Bow Wow sees themselves as having two kinds of clients: four-

legged and two-legged. Even so, their needs aren’t all that different. “We always talk about how these dogs are children,” says Brook Brown, VP of

Operations and Innovation. “I have a fouryear-old, two-legged child and I want her to be in the best place she can be. “You work hard and invest time into finding that place, so when she is there, and her teachers at school give her extra attention and notice that it’s her birthday or that she has a new dress on, that’s special. 

“That translates to what we do here.”

It’s a feeling every parent can relate to. To have such attention to detail when you’re handing your child off to someone, it’s impressive. Brown adds, “Our Camp Counselors know every dog that comes in here by who their friends are, who their friends are not, who their favorite (counselors) are and what their routine is. They notice when a dog’s collar changes!” Of course, the love for dogs is one thing. Managing them is another. CBW’s mission is to create a safe environment for “dogs to be dogs.” Their intricate system, designed with the psyche of dogs in mind, helps them do just that. 46

CBW has 14 free-roaming play yards, separated by size and activity level—all of which are equipped with “Camper Cams” which allows parents to check in on their fur babies via CBW’s ridiculously addicting app. According to Brown, it allows them to create little ecosystems within each yard so that the dogs are separated by size for safety and their personalities for enjoyment. CBW also offers boarding—but before you go thinking you’re sending your pup off to be locked up in a cold, metal crate, know that CBW “campers” enjoy the good life even at rest in luxury suites, cabins and condos. Not only are they spacious enough for dogs to move around and have their own toys, bedding or a t-shirt from home, some include canine grass, memory-foam beds and open tops so that they can stay connected to the rest of the pack. Like any good hotel, campers receive the canine version of a mint on their pillow—a peanut butter-filled bone at lights-out. That is, of course, if mom and dad say it’s ok. Taking it a step further, CBW’s list of services include grooming and training, as well.

To these local brewers, beer is more than just the meaning behind “let’s crack a cold one.” These brewmasters have a favorite beer; one that they would consider the best. Alongside them stands their four-legged supporters and who they would consider the top dog. It’s with passion and curiosity that we dig a little deeper into what make these brewers and their companions truly ‘best in show.’

TIM FROM OSKAR BLUES BREWER BEST IN SHOW: DALE’S PALE ALE

Q: TELL ME ABOUT YOURSELF.

A: I’ve been brewing professionally since late 2006 and came onboard at Oskar Blues in 2008. I live in Longmont with my wife, Michelle, and four-yearold son, Rhys. I’m  thoroughly into beer — the culture, the history, the science and the art. Beyond that, we love getting to the mountains for skiing in the cold months and hiking and mountain biking in the warmer months. Cooking and music are a part of everyday life in the house; we make a point to prepare meals together as a family. Q: TELL ME A LITTLE MORE ABOUT OSKAR BLUES. 

A: Oskar Blues started as a restaurant in Lyons, Colorado in 1997 and it began brewing in 1999.  Since then it has been a wild ride, especially after we were the first brewery to put our Dales Pale Ale in a can back in 2002. Today Oskar Blues is brewing at four facilities, including the original brewpub plus production facilities in Longmont and Brevard, North Carolina, and Austin, Texas.  Q: TELL ME ABOUT YOUR PUP. 

A: Oscar, (not named after the brewery, just an odd coincidence in names), is an Australian Shepard/Swiss Mountain Dog mix and is about twelve-years-old.  My wife adopted him just over ten years ago down in Colorado Springs. He loves water, but not so much swimming, and keeping tabs on the toddler. He is a mama’s boy, and his main mission in life is to stay right next to my wife at all times possible. Q: SO THE BAR OR PUB YOU'RE AT DOESN'T SERVE BEER, (SHAME ON THEM), WHAT WOULD YOU ORDER? 

A: A sherried Scotch like Glendronach or an aromatic white wine like a Moscato, Riesling, or Gewurztraminer. Q: TO ANYONE WHO DOESN'T LIKE BEER, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY? 

A:   It has a broader range of style than they think. To give “beer” a fair shot, one should definitely try something from multiple categories.  Q: WHAT KIND OF BEER WOULD YOU BE AND WHY? 

A: I love history, especially Russian history, and I also love malt so I would say, Imperial Stout.

Q: WHAT IS YOUR BEER MAKING PROCESS?

A: 12Degree is a small, artisanal Belgian-inspired brewpub. Each process depends on the beer but what is consistent with us is that the brewing process is very hands on. Our brewery has zero automation, so we’re very in touch with how each batch is doing at every stage. We’re also in a small space, and the brewery is on two floors, so we’ve had to be creative with our processes. We brew and ferment upstairs and condition, age, and serve the beer from the lower level. Q: TELL ME ABOUT YOUR BEST FRIEND.

A: Well, I feel like I should mention two pups. Walter was a big, mellow goofball of a Golden Retriever. He was with me for nine years and was my brewing companion when I home-brewed our pilot batches. After we had opened, he was 12Degree’s official greeter and mascot for over three years. Walter passed away late last summer at nearly thirteen but left an indelible paw print on 12Degree and of course on me. I just recently got a new pup named Max. He doesn’t know too much about brewing or being a greeter yet, but we’re working on it. Q: IF YOU ONLY HAD ONE BEER TO DRINK FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE? 

A: That’s a tough question, but for one of ours, I’d go with Treachery, our Golden Strong Ale. For one we don’t brew I think I’d have to go with Orval which is a Belgian Trappist Ale that’s so unique it’s practically in it’s own category. Q: HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH THE NAME 12DEGREE?

A: 12Degree is a bit of a beer-geeky name. It’s a reference to the Belgian Scale which was used in the old days of Belgian brewing to measure fermentable sugars -- essentially a measurement of how strong the beer will be when it’s ready to drink. Trappist monks in Belgium would often simply name their beers according to where each one fell on the Belgian Scale. So their smallest beer might be called the “5” and their biggest, the “10." Many of my early beers were, to put it lightly,  just a bit on the strong side, so 12Degree seemed representative. Q: HAVE ANY OF YOUR DOGS EVER ACCIDENTALLY TASTED YOUR BEER? 

A: Never the beer, but Walter used to love to eat spent grains. He knew the time of the brew day when I’d be removing grains from the mash tun and would make sure he was strategically positioned to get some. *Tip for other dog owners just in case they don’t know: hops are poisonous to dogs so be careful!* 60

JASON ZUMBRUNNEN FROM RATIO BEERWORKS COFOUNDER BEST IN SHOW: NEW WAVE

Q: LET'S GET TO KNOW YOU.

A: I was TIME's 2006 Person of the Year, I'm a Sagittarius, but I don't believe in astrology and I generally like punk and rock and also not-so-secretly like Taylor Swift. Q: HOW DID RATIO BEERWORKS BECOME THE NAME? 

A: I was reading a cool article about the newest movement in the coffee industry, which I also love. It was an entire article about the ratio of coffee to the water for different brews. It really struck that we have so many different important ratios in beer brewing too, like our ratio of water to grain is usually 2.61:1.  I also loved the image of the ratio of all the connecting parts of the community that come together to create our brewery.  Q: TELL ME ABOUT MR. LEVI HONKY TONK. 

A: He's a two-year-old Miniature Schnauzer. He is unusually colored as chocolate parti. His favorite activities  are: pooping in our bedroom, wrestling, licking, licking, licking and cuddling. Main quirk: spinning in circles. I would say his personality is categorized as "spunky turd." Q: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BEER TO BREW AND WHY? 

A: I love brewing our huge Imperial Stout called Genius Wizard.    It's such a massive beer that takes two full mashes of grain just to fill up the kettle once. It's filled with tons of chocolaty and caramel malts as well as molasses. We only brew this at one time of the year to come out in December. If we had to brew it year round, it would probably be my least favorite to brew as it's actually the biggest pain in the ass! Q: WHAT DO YOU AND LEVI HONKY TONK USUALLY DO ON THE WEEKENDS?

A: Schnauzers are supposed to be great rat and mouse hunters, but Levi will literally just stare at mice, so we've taken that job off of his list. Levi is quite a great hiker.    He has hiked Mt. Sanitas in Boulder, and we just did the approach hike on Mt. Bierstadt.  I think he'll make his first 14er peak this summer.

ARTICLE MARLEY JERANKO | PHOTOGRAPHY CROCKETT WILLIAMS

I

remember the sky as a place of quiet. It was inhabited by colorful dreams and elaborate stories; it authored tales of adventure

out of slow moving shapes in the stratosphere and fed me robust ruminations. Now in my twenties, I reside in a small, cluttered apartment where fluorescent lights pollute the night and fast-fly-

ing technology stifles all stillness. So I wait anxiously at my desk with the same excitement as visiting an old friend. I sleepily take to the road at 5 o’clock sharp with no other agenda but to head west. I watch dust collect on my feet as I stomp through trails of rusted earth to get where my imagination can run wild again. I’ve crowned myself a Weekend Warrior. The idea of “glamping” never quite lit the same fire under my feet. I have no desire to ride into the wilderness on an enormous RV with five flat-screen TVs; I look absolutely ridiculous in a flower crown; I can’t play the banjo, let alone whistle any resemblance of a musical tune; and frankly, the closeness of campers has always turned me off. All I’ve ever wanted is the freedom of the open air—could expanding my camp amenities really heighten my experience of the outdoors?

THE ART OF GLAMPING (CON TI N U ED)

When I arrived at Collective Retreats in the thick of Vail's rustic ranchlands, a sphere of gray gloom hovered over our canvas tent. Smoke from the barbecue blended into the heavy atmosphere and raindrops began to fall over my plate. Panic spread across my cheeks as I watched the most stunning meal I’ve ever had prepared for me soak up the moisture—knowing this could all be ruined if I don’t act quick, I started to wonder if luxury and nature could coexist cooperatively. I immediately ran inside, noticing the mahogany leather chairs, the ornate chandelier of antler sheds and pure white down comforter. It was all calling my name! Just then, a roll of thunder echoed against the knotted floorboards, and my frenzy followed. Underneath a rich oak dresser stocked with fresh fluffy towels, first aid supplies, and homemade snacks and sparkling water, I found exactly what I needed to shield my trout from the weather: the umbrellas. In fact, it was all there—everything I could possibly need for my stay. A heavy exhale left me. I jumped through the field of sage and tall grass spikelets where our dinner table was nestled against the pasture, relieved to have made it in time to protect these gourmet gifts. Bellies full and hearts happy, we watched the skies part to unveil its greatest wonder. I’ve called Colorado home for as long as I’ve been alive, yet seeing the alpenglow off the New York Range was like seeing mountains for the first time. At night, the cool high desert wind seeping through the mesh doors calmed me into a deep sleep under an even deeper bundle of heated blankets. At daybreak, a howling voice flew by on an ATV and into the hills. With enough time for me to resurrect myself from my cocoon, pour steaming water into the French press and look up from my concoction, I watched a band of nearly fifty horses sprint past the campsite into the corral down the road. I’ve collected many memories sipping my morning Joe in solitude next to the sound of a clear alpine lake. I’ve even greeted the sun with my toes in the mud as I crawled out of my tent. Now, I don’t know about you, but I’ve never felt the footprints of an unwaveringly powerful creature through the ceramic of my mug. I might never again. And this time, I shared with complete strangers neighboring me. Somehow, it was more profound that way. It’s true. I’ve always been a diehard proponent for earning your outdoors. There’s something about melting into the dirt like an ember in your fire after a long day fighting to get there. But in all honesty, sometimes it just feels good to be taken care of…It feels good to know that everything is taken care of. Collective Retreats did just that. The time I spent there allowed me to experience nature in a way I haven’t been able to since I was a child. I wasn’t thinking about whether or not I forgot something; I wasn’t putting my brain into overdrive, planning my every move. I was just living in it. Wholly. Maybe that’s the art of glamping.

Named after the mythological Greek hunter, Orion is a series of three stars that are visible throughout the world. Look for his belt and you’ll find both old and new stars, even a nebula, known as the hunter's 'sword'. Ursa Major exists in nearly every ancient culture, meaning it’s most likely the oldest human tale. Always located in the north, this constellation is circumpolar and never sets below the horizon. You can see the spiral Andromeda Galaxy with the naked eye in dark enough places. Located next to Cassiopeia, which is recognizable for its distinctive 'W' shape, scientists have said that it will eventually collide with the Milky Way and twirl around one another until we morph into one giant cluster.

SUMMER FARMERS MARKET (CON TI N U ED)

FIVE EASY STEPS TO TRANSFORM A FARMERS MARKET TRIP INTO A TREASURE HUNT 1. CREATE YOUR TREASURE HUNTING LIST WITH A KID-FRIENDS RECIPE IN MIND:

Write your list down before you head out. Keep in mind you don’t need to buy all of the items on your list, so don’t let that limit you. 2. ARRIVE EARLY: 

I find it far more relaxing to arrive early, to get there before the crowds and while temperatures are still a bit cooler. Without a wall of people, little ones have an easier time seeing everything from strollers or wagons. If the market is less crowded, you can also encourage your kids to talk to the farmers and ask questions. 3. SHOW AND SHARE YOUR ENTHUSIASM:

If you are excited about all of the beautiful, fresh foods, your kids will be too. By turning the trip into a treasure hunt (or even a game of “I spy”), kids will be more engaged and eager to learn. 4. TEACH CHILDREN ABOUT THEIR TREASURES: 

Once you have your little ones attention, you can teach them about the treasures. Engage their senses: explain what different foods are, taste samples, let your little one pick out the apples or peaches and feel the different texture. Take your time and let the little ones enjoy the sights and sounds. Teach kids to eat from the rainbow: red strawberries, orange carrots, yellow peppers, etc. Your kids will view healthy foods in a new way. 5. PLAN FOR A PICNIC:

Reward your little ones for a job well done with a post treasure hunt picnic. It’s a fun way to sample some of the healthy treats. Ask your kids what their favorite treasure was and about the best part of their morning. This article was originally on Yoga Pants Years, YogaPantsYears.com

“We’re an analog family,” del Gaudio explains. “We don’t like a lot of technology in the house. I think of books as art, but they are also heavily used.”

Boulder Lifestyle | August 2017


Since she was designing her own home, she had the unique opportunity to be her own client. “[I was able to incorporate] all of the things I really believe in personally, like simplicity, low maintenance and [solar power].” del Gaudio says. “I could develop all the ideas I feel strongly about. When you work for someone else, you have to balance what you feel strongly about with what the client feels strongly about. This was one in the same and a special opportunity.” Creating a space that reflects the family she is designing for is a priority in her work. She likes to develop an intimate relationship with the family so she can better understand how they live. She feels she has done her job if the house is personal to that family and an expression of their values. For del Gaudio’s family, they value spending time together in shared spaces versus everyone having their own, individual larger spaces. To accommodate this, she created a wide, open floor plan for the living room, kitchen and dining room so they can spend a majority of their time together in these areas of the house. The bedrooms she kept modest, explaining they’re really just for sleeping and not a central part of the design. Another favorite aspect of her home’s design is the book wall located in the main living space. It spans floor to ceiling and is filled with books for the entire family to utilize. “We’re an analog family,” del Gaudio explains. “We don’t like a lot of technology in the house. I think of books as art, but they are also heavily used.” In designing her home and for her work in general, it is important to del Gaudio to create a space that feels like a seamless piece of their surroundings. “I try to approach every project without thinking about what it will look like, and I think about what it will mean,” del Gaudio explains. “By tying [the project] to a place, the climate, culture or the landscape it will feel inevitable that this piece of architecture was here. It feels connected and has a soul. It should feel like it belongs.”
