Boulder, CO

In 1979 two professors at the University of Colorado received the 43rd brewing license issued in the United States, creating Boulder Beer Company, Colorado’s First Microbrewery. The original site of the brewery was a small farm northeast of Boulder, the brew house sharing space in a shed originally housing a few goats!


Year Round

Buffalo Gold

Tap Handle

4.8%  Golden Ale

A Colorado favorite since 1989, Buffalo Gold is a true golden ale. Boulder's lightest beer in flavor, it's an easy-drinking ale that still packs a stampede of flavor!

Hazed & Infused

Tap Handle

5%  Dry-Hopped Ale

Our best-selling brew is "Hazed" in its natural unfiltered state, and "Infused" (dry-hopped) during fermentation for big hop flavor and aroma without added bitterness. Get hazed!


7.2% India Pale Ale

Tap Handle

Pale in color but packed with flavor. Mojo reflects the prefect balance of hop bitterness and malt character. The unique Amarillo hop creates a big citrus flavor with an ultra-crisp dry finish.


5.7%  Pale Ale

In search of the perfect festival beer, Boulder Beer brewers and avid homebrewer Kyle Hollingsworth - Keyboardist of the String Cheese Incident -  joined creative forces. Imagination and improvisation flowed freely, and Hoopla was born. Hoopla Pale Ale is dry-hopped with generous amounts of Glacier hops for a fruity, floral hop aroma that's balanced with a crisp, clean finish from its unique blend of US and German grains. Hoopla is the perfect companion to festival season that's now in the perfect festival package - Cans!

Sweaty Betty

Tap Handle

5.2%  Hefeweizen

A refreshing, unfiltered Bavarian-style Hefeweizen. The yeast gives the brew subtle hints of clove and banana.


Tap Handle

5.9%  Chocolate Porter

Black in color with rich, dark chocolate aromatics and flavors and subtle coffee-like notes. Cacao nibs create a devilishly delicious chocolate finish with a velvety mouthfeel.
