Just a friendly message to remind our customers that we will be closed on Tuesday's
OWNER/ BREWER/ PARTNER
This brewery started as Bobby's dream and eventually became a reality on Feb 2nd, 2020 (Groundhog Day, but purely by coincidence). When it all started the location was a hollow white shell with no walls. Bobby worked around the clock building out the brewery and taproom area, along with the homebrew supply store. Bobby started as homebrewer and worked his way up to creating the location and the beer that he wanted to share with the world.
Several hundred batches of beer later, Ball Brewing exists as you see it today (And definitely not without the help of everyone listed on this page and many others). After feverishly brewing around the clock on the original tiny one barrel brewing system trying to keep beer in stock for the taproom, the team has graduated and installed (thanks to many people) it's new 10 barrel brewing system. With his amazing partner, and the team they have in place, Ball Brewing looks forward to continuing to provide people with quality beer and top notch service while growing and being able to continue to reach out to more amazing customers.
Clark (originally a Colorado native) and Bobby initially met competing against each other in homebrew competitions in Florida. It didn't take long before their rivalry turned into a lifelong friendship. After joining forces and brewing together as homebrewers, Clark and his wife Vicki retired from the Fire dept. as firefighter/ paramedics last summer and moved back to Colorado where Clark grew immediately dove in head first to help Bobby and the entire team at Ball Brewing as an assistant brewer and quickly asserted his skills and brewing expertise that won him many awards as a homebrewer, to become the most valuable asset in the brewhouse, handling brew days, and all other day to day duties involved in the back of house. Ball Brewing wouldn't be able to continue to produce the caliber and quality of beer that our customers have come to expect if it wasn't for Clark's hard work and devotion. Many of our regular customers have also had the opportunity to enjoy chatting with Clark while he occasionally pours beer and covers the taproom when he's not working feverishly in the back
BEERTENDER/ BREWERY ASSISTANT/ OPERATIONS
Chad is a recent and very welcomed addition to the Ball Brewing family. Over the last year, Chad has been helping brew beer in the back in his spare time to help out and learn more about the craft for fun, all while still working another job. We recently were fortunate enough to be able to add him as a full time employee to our team. Chad brought with him former brewery experience from his time in Alaska, along with his bar management experience, and retail sales of craft beer. He is the perfect bridge between being able to help with anything in the brewery, and the great personality to be up front serving our customers. He is a die hard Cubs fan (don't hold that against him there are a few of us here), and holds a wealth of knowledge of craft beer not just locally, but worldwide. If you find yourself in the taproom during one of Chad's shifts you can expect great service, great answers to any questions you may have, and great music to be playing.
