Two more small breweries….this time it’s J. Wells Brewing and Fate Brewing Co both set to open soon in Boulder CO. Details from Westword:
Jamie Wells has been working for four years to convert his 1.5-barrel homebrewing kit into a commercial system that could sate the thirst of many more people, and on Thursday, January 10, he'll finish that task by opening J Wells Brewery at 2516 49th Street in Boulder. His little brewery will be the first to open in 2013 in the Denver/Boulder area, but certainly not the last, as at least a dozen others are in the final preparation stages, including two each in Boulder, Denver and Golden.
Fate Brewing, founded by Mike Lawinski, the former operations manager for the West End Tavern, is scheduled to open at 1600 38th Street in Boulder in late January or early February, while Sanitas Brewing, run by three local brewers, hopes to open just two blocks away, at 1860 38th Street, later this year.
[editors note] There is already a Fate Brewing Co in Scottsdale, AZ so stay tuned for a possible naming conflict once again.
