Archaeologist, Andrew Moore, opened up Intrepid Sojourner Beer Project in Denver in 2017 and transitioned that brewery into Next Stop Brew Co. Sadly, his brewery became a casualty of COVID. But this adventurous wanderer – AKA The Intrepid Sojourner, a traveler, brewer and mountain biker, doesn’t look at closure as end.
Thankfully he looks at it as a beginning. When Intrepid Sojourner closed recently, Andrew decided to go on a bike ride, and not just any bike ride. Joining a colleague and friend, Jon Strother, Head Brewer at Guanella Pass Brewery, they took off on a 250 mile bike ride. Riding four days and tackling 22,000 feet of elevation gain, Andrew doesn’t do easy; he tackles challenges head on.

Join us as we chat with Andrew about the closing of his brewery, his mountain biking adventures, brewing in Bermuda and his goals for the future. Being the traveler, brewer and biker that he is, we selfishly hope that he opens up another brewery so that we can continue to share in his adventures.
Keep an eye out for Andrew Moore. His former brewery may be a casualty of COVID, but I imagine you’ll see his name floating around Denver in the future.
Oh, the places we went!
Oh, the beer we drank.

Andrew’s talking about some serious rides. We’ve got a short video for you on a serious ride for us. Definitely not 200 miles, but we did some hike-a-bikin!

Maybe you’re interested in a through hike or a through bike. Not quite the same, but quite close. Jesse and Janae hiked the Colorado Trail, and they have some fun tales to tell of their adventures.

PRO TIP: When possible, please check ahead anywhere you go. Many places are re-opening, but some may not be. Due to the C-word, you need to be prepared for restrictions and closures. Be flexible.

“Ken and April do a fantastic job of mixing the culture of beer and adventure into something akin to a fine barrel-aged sour. They are wise beyond their years. Loving this podcast and it will be on our weekly playlist for SURE!”TheDogInUs
