The 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.
At 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:
As 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.
The 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!
When a 14 ton mobile store rolls through Colorado there’s simply no stopping until they hit a craft brewery. And that stop just happens to be our tap room in Steamboat Springs.

Tour Manager Scott Eisenburg says he’s “been waiting for February the 13th to roll around for weeks now.” That’s the day he pulls his 38-foot RV up to the Butcherknife Brewery to belly up and sell some incredible gear at a discount.
Our partners in this event also include Big Agnes and Honey Stinger… two of the nation’s top outdoor lifestyle suppliers. That coupled with the dirty blues rock of Yer State Birds playing live in our brew house should make for a mega-party not to miss.
So here’s what you can expect:
- 25% OFF merchandise from TREW Gear
- Giveaways and Door Prizes from Big Agnes and Honey Stinger
- LIVE MUSIC with local favorite: Yer State Birds
- FREE and open to the public
- Incredible food from the Y-Not Wagon
- Tasty beer from yours truly… Butcherknife Brewing Co.
The party starts at 2pm with live music taking stage at 5:30pm.
SHOP and SAVE on the planet’s most technical garments. For one day only, all merchandise from TREW Gear is 25% OFF.
We’ve been working hard to bring you more live music in the tap room. We hold a strong belief that tunes and beer go hand in hand. So in an effort to entertain you, we’ve booked the duo of Thornhill & Geppert to once again grace us with their musical presence.
If you like your blues-grass mixed with a side of reggae and and topped with classic rock then you’ll enjoy an acoustic evening with Craig Thornhill & Paul Geppert.
FREE SHOW, Saturday January 24th from 4-7pm at the Butcherknife Brewery Tap Room.
