There are over 40 craft breweries in Boulder County, each with their own unique backstory, identity, and personality. Local craft beer enthusiasts here in and around Boulder will have yet another exciting brewery to frequent in just a few months when Gunbarrel Brewing Company, which will feature a broad range of intriguing and audacious ales, opens this year.
Gunbarrel Brewing Company’s opening will be the culmination of years of planning by husband and wife team Jamie and Marie Fox. According to Jamie and Marie, owning and operating a brewery is something that they always aspired to do during their eventual retirement. With Jamie’s long background in homebrewing and Marie’s experience in marketing and hospitality, it was a long simmering idea always at the back of their minds. After Jamie graduated from the University of Vermont with his Ph.D in neuroscience and completed his Post-Doctoral work at the University of Colorado Boulder, the duo found themselves in a transitional period and asked themselves why they should wait to make the idea a reality. Why shouldn’t they pursue it in the immediate future. Thus, tangible steps towards making Gunbarrel Brewing Company a reality began.
