Barrels & Bottles Brewery Announces New Head Brewer Cory Carvatt

GOLDEN, CO — Barrels & Bottles Brewery is proud to announce Cory Carvatt as its new Head Brewer. Carvatt joined the company in November 2015, and has since created several new beers that are now Barrels & Bottles in-house staples like the Orange Creamsicle Ale, a Blonde Ale brewed with orange peel and vanilla beans.

Carvatt came to Barrels & Bottles Brewery from the brewing team by way of beertending staff at Dry Dock Brewing Company. While brewing there he attended the American Brewer's Guild.

“I fell in love with wine and beer while working for my parents at their liquor store,” says Carvatt. “Left with the opportunity to go to New Zealand to work a summer internship at a wine vineyard or interview for a beertending gig at Dry Dock, I decided beer was my future.”

Learn more about Cory’s brewing story on Tuesday, March 22 at Barrels & Bottles’ Meet The Brewer Night for Colorado Craft Beer Week. From 4 to 8pm, the brewpub is pouring complimentary five-ounce tastes of house beers. There are more details about this event on the brewery’s Facebook page.
