Gilded Goat Brewing Company is a family-owned brewery that is a complimentary blend of art and science. Their head brewer, Charlie Hoxmeier, was in fact studying for a PhD in Microbiology when he began experimenting with all the different iterations of home brewing, from brewing on the kitchen stove with extract to building a 3-vessel mini-brewhouse in the garage. Combined with Colorado water and fresh and innovative ingredients, their small batch approach led to some amazing beers with simple pleasures of quality, color, and flavor. The family opened their doors a little over a year ago in the mid-town area. The location quickly became a neighborhood staple, offering weekly community events and a great meeting spot for friends and families.
With all the hard work that goes into opening a new brewery, they have recently received one of the largest awards in the brewing industry with their monumental Gold Medal win for their Guten Bock at last weekend’s Great American Beer Festival. The event attracts 2,404 breweries and more than 8,500 beer entries from all over the country and is known as “The Superbowl” of events. The Guten Bock has aromas of dark fruit, raisin, and rye bread mixed to create a familiar aroma. Sweet and malty flavors create a warm richness that pairs well with meat and cheese on fall days.
