About Beer HERE! Brewing the New West:
The incredible exhibit originally developed by History Colorado is coming to Boulder!
Beer Here! will feature stories from the past, present and future, as well as more than 160 authentic artifacts from Colorado’s beer and brewing history, connecting time periods. Some of the most compelling objects include:
A Denver brewer’s union card from 1888, written entirely in German, because that was the language most brewers spoke at the time;
Adolph Coors’ original hand-drawn sketch of his first beer label, on loan from the Coors archive
A massive wooden bottle smasher used by the Denver Police Department during Prohibition
This exhibit’s development was generously supported by the Ball Corporation and Coors Brewing Company and brought to Boulder thanks to a gift from Kathy and Brian Spear.
About Uhl’s Brewing Company:
Uhl’s Brewing Co is not the first Uhl to open a brewery in the USA. In 1856 Matthias Uhl Brewing opened in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, passing hands and owners until it finally went defunct as Beth Uhl’s Brewery in 1942. Aaron Uhl’s Lineage traces back to the same city and state that the original Uhl’s Brewery owners family lineage is from. Though it’s not determined if the new owner is related to the old, we like to think there may be some connection between the two Uhl’s Family. Uhl’s Brewing Co. owner, Aaron Uhl, has traced his lineage back to Bavaria before the family immigrated to the United States in1850. So one could say, brewing is in the blood of any Uhl out there. As an homage to the old brewery, we distinctly revamped and updated the old logos and slogans.
