People have been like: Why do you want to open a brewery right now?” Sam Scruby says. “But if you looked at all the momentum in 2019, it was experience-driven. It was on-premise neighborhood spots. … We’re trying to pick back up where we left off before the pandemic.”

Now open in Lyons, Colorado, MainStage Brewing Co. is the first brewery to open in Boulder County in 2021, and a few more are on the way. Maybe we’ve sidestepped some of the negative prognostications accompanying COVID-19. Or, maybe, as Adam Avery told Eric Kean and Scruby: “There’s always room for great beer.”

More from Kean and Scruby in this week’s Boulder WeeklyVol. 28, No. 45.
