Boulder Beer Company

About Boulder Beer Company

Boulder Beer Company, Colorado’s First Craft Brewery, was established in 1979 by two University of Colorado physics professors.  At that time there were only 42 other operating breweries in the country!  They set up their original brewhouse on a friend’s goat farm north of Boulder, then built and moved into our current brewery on Wilderness Place in 1984.  We still brew our fresh beers in small 50 barrel batches to give each a distinct, handcrafted flavor, using only the finest ingredients available including Arapahoe Glacier water, 2-row malted barley, specialty yeasts, and hops hand selected annually by our Brewmaster, David Zuckerman.  From our Hazed Hoppy Session Ale and Shake Chocolate Porter, to our exciting seasonal and limited-edition releases, we pride ourselves on brewing classic styles with an innovative twist.  

Jeff Brown – President

jeff-boulderbeerJeff Brown is President of Boulder Beer Company joining Brewmaster David Zuckerman in 1990 where they began reshaping Colorado’s 1st Craft Brewery.

Jeff is a Florida native born in Winter Haven. After having fully mastered the fundamentals of beer drinking during the early ‘70’s, he migrated to Colorado in 1974, giving him a front row seat to watch the world of craft beer grow from a handful of pioneers to 3500+ craft breweries.

When Jeff isn’t roaming around the brewery or pedaling a bike he enjoys traveling, cooking and hiking with his wife Michelle and their dog, Pancho Villa.
