Bootstrap Brewing Company

Bootstrap Brewing in Niwot, CO (Boulder County) was founded by local residents Leslie and Steve Kaczeus. They both left the high-tech industry to follow their dream of creating an adventurous craft brewery dedicated to producing a wide range of high quality ales and lagers.

After nearly five years of planning and research, the couple took a leap of faith and bought equipment to put into storage while they looked for the perfect space. The brewery opened its doors on June 20th 2012 claiming solstice as a birthday and anniversary.

Steve who is a Mechanical Engineer and Program Manager by training, was an avid home brewer for over 20 years and graduated from the American Brewer’s Guild in the summer of 2011.  Leslie’s background is in marketing. In the short time since opening, they have laid down a set of well-received beers and have begun to brew fantastic classic beers and exciting seasonals including bold fruit and spice infused beer.

Our goal is simple – we want to make really great beer and have a lot of fun.
