About

Okay maybe not every project starts that way, but this one did.  A little over two years ago while sitting in a local brewery my creative mind started to run wild.   Maybe it was the amazing craft beer I was drinking, maybe it was my love for photography, either way, I had to take photos of this brewery.  I loved all of the stainless steel, I loved the reclaimed beetle kill wood, and train-car base boards serving as a bar top.  But mostly, I loved how all of this flowed so nicely together.  So warm and welcoming, yet very much a manufacturing facility.  After frequenting this brewery for a while and becoming friends with the employees, I mustered up the nerve and asked to take photos and they didn't hesitate to say yes.  I had a blast taking photos that night.

I started visiting more and more craft breweries in this awesome state with camera in tow, but shortly after starting this project I really noticed something special about this industry.  Sure, the metal is gorgeous, the taprooms are beautiful,  and the beer is amazing.  But, it was the people that worked the long hours and the passion they had for what they did that I fell in love with.  I wanted to tell their story by documenting even a little of what they do on a day to day basis.

Help me share their stories.  Together, we can create a beautiful book of photographs celebrating the craft and devotion of Colorado brewers!

With Gratitude

First and foremost, we'd like to thank all of the amazing breweries and their staff who have unquestioningly welcomed us in and provided untethered access to their facilities to take pictures.  We've learned so much through your expertise and have been unendingly inspired by the kindness and friendship you've shown us throughout this journey.

Throughout this process we've had many people working with us behind the scenes - without their help and support, this book and campaign would not be the same.  Thank you so much for everything!

In addition, we owe much gratitude to the very special folks at Baere Brewing Company.  Before we even asked, they offered to help in too many ways to count.  We cannot begin to say how much we appreciate you guys!!

We'd also like to thank Imbibe, Left Hand Brewing Company, Avery Brewing Company, and the Colorado Brewers Guild for their support, promoting the campaign, and working with us to provide some awesome rewards!

Last, but certainly not least, we're thankful to Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project, Epic Brewing Company, Odell Brewing Company, Renegade Brewing Company, and Upslope Brewing Company for allowing us to take over some walls in their taprooms to showcase our photography, helping to promote this campaign, and hosting us for events during the kickstarter.

And thank YOU for your support along the way!!

Stretch Goals

Instead of using a photograph from the book as the cover image we will have a custom illustration!  We are working with an extremely talented local artist, John Vogl (The Bungaloo), to produce something truly special for the cover if we meet this stretch goal!

40 additional pages will be added to the book.  This extra space will allow us to better showcase the breweries in the book!

Each book will come with a dust jacket, printed with the cover illustration, to protect it's cover!

Risks and challenges

All of the pictures for the book are already taken and I am in the process of formatting the book. The major remaining risks and challenges for this project revolve around the printing and overseas shipping delays. I am working with an American-based company that specializes in overseas printing for self-publishers. Having their experience behind my project will be immensely valuable in helping to overcome any unforeseen issues or delays that may arise.
