Sanitas Brewing Company finalizes Boulder location

Sanitas Brewing CompanyThe number of Boulder breweries continues to grow. Sanitas Brewing Company has found a home for their upcoming brewery and it looks like they'll be able to have a lot of room to grow in. Check out their press release issued today and see what's in store for this new venture.


[PRESS RELEASE] BOULDER, COLORADO, MAY 3, 2013 –The founders of Sanitas Brewing Company announce that they have signed a lease on a 15,000 sq. ft. warehouse space in central Boulder. The new building will feature a large contemporary tap room and a 3-season beer garden. The production area will showcase both traditional and innovative brewing techniques. Large windows exposing the production area to the tap room and frequent brewery tours will strengthen the connection between visitors and their beers.

“We are happy to have a home centrally located in Boulder,” explains cofounder Zach Nichols, “with easy access for cyclists and pedestrians, everyone will be able to enjoy old friends and make new friends with our name-sake mountain as the backdrop.”

One of the more interesting features of the brewery will be Boulder’s first coolship, a large shallow brewing vessel exposed to outside air, allowing the young beer, known as wort, to cool and attract naturally occurring yeast to start wild fermentation. This wort will then be racked into oak barrels for the completion of fermentation and aging.

“We ordered a brand new brewhouse from the Northeast which is scheduled to arrive in about a month. We are excited to move through construction and start brewing,” says cofounder Michael Memsic, “the coolship will help us create distinctive brews that capture the essence of our community. This traditional element of brewing gives our beers unique flavors that cannot be replicated outside of Sanitas.”

The new Sanitas Brewing Company building at 3550 Frontier Ave. is located one block off of Pearl Street, very close to Foothills Parkway and Whole Foods. Sanitas’ new home is also within the vicinity of the future home of the Boulder Transit station. Previously, the company had pursued a lease in the former U.S. Postal Service Sorting Center on 38th and Walnut.

Sanitas Brewing Company is scheduled to open in Boulder this summer. Check out their newly updated website at and follow them on Facebook, twitter, and their blog to stay updated on their progress.
