Gilded Goat Brewing Co.
Bold and Balanced Beer | Colorado Culture
The Gilded Goat Brewing Company is a family owned brewery with its foundations in the European beer traditions and the influence of the Colorado beer culture. We treat our beer-making mission as a complementary blend of art and science using Colorado mountain water and fresh ingredients. We make beer that, like the goat, is adventurous, bold and balanced in its environment; comfortable on the edge.
Beer Science: Gilded Goat brewer opens in-house lab to teach, help other brewmakers
July 8 | After earning his microbiology PhD at Colorado State University, Charlie Hoxmeier spent a few years working long hours in a research lab studying the mycobacteria that can cause tuberculosis and other “neglected diseases.” On the side, he applied his interest in biology to the yeasts, bacteria and other organisms in his homebrewed beer.
“We've built a fairly large lab here in the brewery, which is one thing that is really going to set us apart from a lot of the other small brewers,” Hoxmeier said. “They don’t have the personnel and the expertise to be able to do some of the lab testing that we’ll be able to do just because of my background.”
