Tap Handle #52: Boulder Beer - Buffalo Gold

This tap is unique in that although I have a few other taps that feature buffalo heads, this one has a fully sculpted body instead of just a head.

Click through to read more about Boulder Beer and their Buffalo Gold...

Boulder Beer Company was Colorado's first microbrewery, founded in Boulder in 1979 by David Hummer, Alvin Nelson, and Randolph Ware. Ware and Hummer were physics professors at the University of Colorado and were also home brewers. Early on, Boulder Beer was brewed at a farm; five years later they moved to their current site, where they can produce up to 45,000 barrels annually. In 2002 they entered into an agreement with Rock Bottom Breweries to sell beer. Rock Bottom is owned by CraftWorks Restaurants and Breweries, which also owns big names like Old Chicago and Gordon Biersch. In fact, CraftWorks's Walnut Brewery lists Buffalo Gold as one of its beers, but it is really made by Boulder.

Buffalo Gold is a golden ale that won a silver medal at the 2000 World Beer Cup. Weighted average on is 2.65 out of 5.
