Our company Story
We began with two brewers’ audacious passion
for beer. Hustling by day and brewing by night.
As old friends from Boulder Beer, Michael and Chris wrapped up a long, double-brew day by playing with a recipe in a leftover whiskey barrel. That Imperial Stout marked the start of a long venture between the two. As they walked out into the parking lot, they heard something on the roof. Perched overhead, with the moon at its back, sat a large owl. It took flight overhead, flaunting its 6-foot wingspan to the brewers below. After that, they couldn’t help but name their first beer the Blackhorn Owl Imperial Stout, a species of owl that most definitely does not exist, but they paid homage to the impressive creature from the night of what would become many late brew nights together.
