In addition to the six mainline offerings, smaller batches – such as Bourbon-barrel aged Bridge and a Belgian variety of the Blonde X – have also been made available in the Tap Room at Butcherknife and select accounts. “We’re excited to announce the first true launch party for a Butcherknife beer – at 9AM this Sunday, September 14th.

Butcherknife plans to distribute over 1000 barrels of beer in its first 12 months of operation, with plenty of space in its custom-built facility and a strong plan for growth going forward. Though draft-only for now, the company intends to begin packaging its most popular varieties in smaller formats before those first 12 months are up. [2875 Elk River Rd, Steamboat Springs, CO]
