January 5, 2017

By: Brian Phipps

The northeast region of Boulder is getting a real treat. Gunbarrel Brewing boasts a 3,200 square foot taproom as well as an outdoor beer garden. The facility, in total, encompasses 20,000 square feet including parking and plenty of space for special events.

Gunbarrel Brewing Company is owned by Jamie and Marie Fox. Jamie is a homebrewing veteran and he received his education in Brewing Technology from the world-renowned Seibel Institute, as well as a Ph.D. in neuroscience. Jamie said, "We look forward to offering distinctive and innovative flavors to compliment what is already being offered in the area."

Also, Gunbarrel Brewing Company will feature an on-site laboratory. "I will employ laboratory testing and strong quality-control mechanisms from day one," explains Jamie, "to ensure we are presenting our patrons with the best quality beer possible."

In the beginning, Gunbarrel Brewing's beer lineup includes:

  • Dirty Habit: a hazy double IPA that packs a wallop of aroma hops to balance out 102 IBU and 8.5% abv.
  • Queen City Saison: an exclusive, rare yeast strain and explodes with pepper, hay and hints of orange on a nutty spelt base.
  • Philosopher's Daughter: a dark farmhouse ale loaded with cherries and intriguing notes brought on by brettanomyces.
  • Milo of Croton: a luscious foreign extra stout boasts a full bodied warmth encompassing strong notes of coffee, chocolate and stone fruit.
  • More will be announced as the opening draws near.

BOULDER — The founders of Gunbarrel Brewing Co., Jamie Fox and his wife, Marie, have signed a lease on a 20,000-square-foot facility in the Gunbarrel area of Boulder for their self-funded brewery. The Foxes plan to have Gunbarrel Brewing Co. up and running during the first quarter of 2017 at 7088 Winchester Circle, north of Lookout Road and west of North 71st Street. The company will offer a wide variety of beer styles employing both traditional and innovative brewing techniques. "We craft innovative beers expressing an extensive range of flavors that are delicate, funky or bold, inspired by ancient and modern styles," said Jamie Fox, who is the company's head brewer. The facility will have a 10-barrel brewhouse built by JV Northwest of Canby, Ore., and a one-barrel pilot system that will be used for experimentation, research and development. The facility will include a large taproom and a beer garden. The brewery will host food trucks, live performances and beer-centric educational events. The couple has acquired the bulk of their equipment over the course of the past three years while searching for a location for the brewery. "We took our time to find a permanent location that would provide a really welcoming environment for our guests and coworkers, someplace they would truly enjoy spending time in," Marie Fox said. The facility will allow for future growth and space for implementation of their barrel and wild ale programs. "We recognize that there are quite a few breweries in the area," Jamie Fox said.
