Colorado Brewery List is run by a skilled team of passionate beer lovers. We love the Colorado beer industry. Not just because we appreciate beer, but the community that surrounds it. We provide the most detailed directory of breweries in Colorado and strive to be a complete resource to connect local and visiting beer lovers to breweries in our state.
The Management Team
Founder / CEO
Ryan has had a passion for technology for most of his life. He loves using his technical skills to find ways to simplify and solve problems for himself and others. That trait inspired the creation of Colorado Brewery List when he saw the lack of a detailed resource to find local breweries. ColoradoBreweryList.com is a way for him to help bring organization to a community he loves. Outside of this site, Ryan enjoys Sci-Fi books and movies, studying languages, traveling, and enjoying the outdoors.
Founder / Data Management / Social Media
Since the inception of the site, Ashley has been in charge of researching, collecting, and organizing the massive amount of data from every Colorado brewery. She has been integral in expanding the details we display and creating new categories for classifying brewery information. In her day job, she is in charge of post production at a recording studio that produces digital audio books for the National Library of Congress’ blind and physically handicapped division.
Founder / Chief Creative Officer
Joseph has extensive experience in brand creation, design, and publishing. He brings these skills to Colorado Brewery List to create consistent branding across multiple medias. He also works as a design manager for a nationally distributed magazine publication. In his spare time, he produces an audio podcast with his twin brother comparing Marvel and DC comics, rating and reviewing comic book movies, and other related news.
Chief Operations Officer / Upcoming Breweries Expert
Stephen Adams is better known as The Colorado Beer Geek in the Colorado brewery community. He has visited every brewery in Colorado and has greatly enjoyed keeping up with them. In order to do so, he has focused his efforts on keeping track of Colorado breweries in development from concept through construction. He joined this website with his friends of Colorado Brewery List in 2016 but still keeps his own presence on Facebook. When not going to breweries he works as a satellite engineer or is enjoying medieval recreation with the SCA.
The Technical Team
Originally from California, Dave moved to Colorado from Michigan in October of 2017. Since then, he’s visited over 270 of the state’s amazing breweries. In between traveling to breweries and attending beer festivals, Dave is a seasoned IT professional. Combining his passion for beer and his skills in programming, joining up with the Colorado Brewery List seemed like a perfect fit. In addition, Dave enjoys spending time camping, listening to music, and spending quality time with his wife and young daughter.
The Writing Team
Good Day and Good Beer, everyone! My name is Alex. I was born and raised in Colorado with a short break for college in Salt Lake City. I started in the craft beer game with my Instagram which became my creative outlet as well as an excuse to drink over the last four years. I have always loved writing fictional short stories but recently I decided to combine my two loves. I am forever a nerd and I love traveling. When I’m not at my favorite brewery, I’m usually spending too much time at work or at home with my family and pets.
Zenia is a Colorado native and loves this state for so many reasons, one being all the amazing beer it has to offer. Zenia learned to appreciate craft beer shortly after college and quickly delved in by becoming an avid homebrewer and earning her Cicerone Certified Beer Server certificate. Zenia works in Audio/Video production and brings her passion for storytelling as a content contributor to the Colorado Brewery List, focusing primarily on breweries in Colorado Springs and the surrounding area. In her free time, she enjoys exploring Colorado through running and hiking, often with her husband and dog by her side.
