Two weeks ago Boulder Beer Co. thought it was shipping out its last cases of beer to be sold on the retail market after announcing in October — just months after celebrating its 40th anniversary — that it was scaling back its business to only offer its product at its taproom. However, on Monday, Colorado’s oldest craft brewery announced it reached an agreement with Sleeping Giant Brewing Co. to continue distributing its products around the country. The deal was reached just in time to ensure there will be no lag in availability for Boulder Beer’s loyal customers, many of whom have patronized the brewery since David Hummer and Randolph “Stick” Ware, two physics professors at the University of Colorado Boulder, founded it in 1979. “When Sleeping Giant reached out to us to talk about taking over the retail side of the businesses, we wanted to make sure there wasn’t a lag in distribution so we could keep those shelf spaces and not have to … [Read more...] about Boulder Beer Co. reaches deal to continue retail distribution
By Dave Pehling SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — When word surfaced earlier this year that not one but two members of local heavy rock favorites Hot Lunch were leaving Bay Area, there were some understandable concerns among fans that the change could mean the end of the band. A force on the San Francisco underground for 13 years, Hot Lunch was founded by singer Eric Shea after the split of his potent retro-rock outfit Parchman Farm in 2006. Shea managed to put together an all-star quartet of talented players, including former Mensclub guitar hero Aaron Nudelman and the pulverizing rhythm section of drummer Rob Alper — ex-The Sermon (he also played guitar with Sacto garage-punks SLA) — and bassist Charlie Karr, who was best known for his work with the Alternative Tentacles band Harold Ray Live in Concert. Hot Lunch soon became a fixture in S.F. clubs with their fiery live performances and expanded their audience with the eventual release of the group’s self-titled debut … [Read more...] about CBS SF Talks To Psychedelic Punk/Metal Outfit Hot Lunch
