Two New Brewers!

Two New Brewers!

Two new brewers have joined the 2017 ACBF lineup: Mad Jack’s Mountain Brewery and New Planet Beer Company.

Mad Jack’s Mountain Brewery is located in Bailey, Colorado and was formed in 2010 to become a lifelong dream for Jack and Allison (owners).  After living 3 years in Germany, they ate and drank their way across the country and were inspired by the German Beers and Beer Gardens.

When New Planet’s founder first discovered he was Celiac, he thought his craft beer drinking days were over. What started out as a personal quest quickly turned into the launch of New Planet Brewery. Established in 2009, New Planet headquartered its brewing operations and Tap Room in Boulder, CO. With a view of the Boulder Flatirons in the company’s backyard, it’s hard not to be inspired to make great beer.

There’s a lot going on at the Norris-Penrose Event Center. To help you find your way, here is a satellite photo from Google with the Event Center and Parking identified. There is lots of parking between the areas immediately to the north of the building and to the west. If those are full, you will find additional space a bit further to the west adjacent to the rodeo arena.
