Soul Poles SteamboatThe good folks from Soul Poles will be swinging by the Butcherknife Tap Room to work with anyone who wants to build their own ski poles. Bamboo poles seem to be all the rage these days and Soul Poles is the leader in the industry.

These poles are designed by former U.S. Ski Team members and the company was founded on the mission to protect the natural playgrounds we love. These one of a kind poles are built stronger and more durable than most metal poles and come with a 2-year warranty. And this is your chance to take part in building and crafting your very own poles.

When: Thursday, March 19th 4-8pm (drop-ins welcome)
Where: Butcherknife Tap Room (directions)
Cost: $135 per pair

Choose your grips, your baskets, and hand-select your bamboo. This is an opportunity to ski with the world’s most amazing poles and have a part in how they are built. Please join us.

Weather Impacts on Beer

In case you missed it, the folks from 9-News Denver were in Steamboat Springs to report on the effects that weather has on the production of beer. Here’s what our own Rob Schwarz had to say…

Steamboat Springs BARley

Barley Craft & DraftAt Butcherknife, we’re always supportive of anyone looking to bring more awareness to craft beer and the different nuances of specific styles. So when The BARley Craft & Draft of Steamboat Springs announced “IPA Week” it didn’t take much for us to get on board.

Now through March 8th, visit The BARley to experience 15 of the country’s finest IPAs from Colorado, California, and beyond. Some of the out-of-town beers featured this week include:

The BARley SteamboatAs far as local brews go, you bet that we’ve come up big with an exclusive unveiling of our Decapitator Double IPA. The Butcherknife Decapitator is a close relative of the Amputator but with some subtle differences. From this one, you can expect:

  • 11.2% ABV
  • Same grain bill as our Amputator but with a slightly different hop schedule
  • The addition of ginger, for taste

Now keep in mind that many of these fine IPAs are in limited quantity and when they are gone, they’re gone. This includes the Butcherknife Decapitator which will go quickly.

Steamboat Springs BARleyThe BARley is the ONLY place you can find the Decapitator so get in there to enjoy this potent and delicious offering.

IPA Week at The BARley ends March 8th. But don’t fret. Owners Chris and Meg Stromberg have a few ideas kicking around for next events. Be on the lookout for a summer “Sour Weekend” with Crooked Stave Artisans and their sour collection. They’ve also got plans to add a 31st tap featuring cask conditioned concoctions from Hogshead Brewery.

Amongst his personal favorites, Chris lists the Russian River Blind Pig as his #1 go-to, but for good reason. When Chris and Meg got engaged, they quickly popped into Russian River and ordered two IPAs to celebrate the occasion.

For that we say… Good on ya, Chris!
