Story
Kyle and Miranda both went to the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley and after graduating they married and got regular jobs unrelated to brewing. Miranda currently works in HR for the State of Colorado in Denver, and Kyle formerly worked at a public accounting firm and later switched over to a public telecommunications job. When a friend introduced Kyle to homebrewing several years ago, Kyle quickly became hooked on brewing his own beer. He joined the KROC homebrew club in Denver and worked on his brewing skills out of his own kitchen for several years.

As his love of homebrewing grew, both Miranda and Kyle took to touring as many Colorado breweries as possible. For a while, they traveled almost every weekend. Miranda admits she was a wine drinker before they started traveling, but now has fallen in love with craft beer and has even started homebrewing several batches of brew herself.

It didn't take long for Kyle to get the desire to perfect his beer recipes and dream of owning his own brewery. The Carbaughs started searching for a possible location for a brewery back in 2009. They even created a makeshift brewery in Kyle's parents barn in 2010 as a place to continue learning the craft. After a couple years of looking for a brewery location they ended up back in Greeley, an area close to where they grew up. When the opportunity came to grab the old Crabtree Brewing location - they jumped at it. (read more here)
