Beer at 6512 is back

After a hiatus of more than two months, Beer at 6512 is back. A friend persuaded me that this little blog has a loyal readership and some value it can offer to local beer lovers.

This time I won't be doing it alone. The aforementioned friend, Erich Hennig, will help me keep the site updated. Erich is a Durango homebrewer who has experience brewing beer, mead and cider, and has a fine sense of what makes a good craft beer. Not incidentally, he's also a damn good writer who you may know from his beer columns in Mountain Gazette and Rocky Mountain Brewing News.

Together we plan to provide regular updates that tell you more than you probably want to know about craft brewing in Durango and the wider world.

We're also looking for other contributors. You can't be any geek off the street, as Warren G once said. But if you know a good beer from a bad one and how to compose a decent sentence in English, please email me at soggycoaster(at)gmail(dot)com.

And for the rest of you, stop by when you can and read up on what's happening with craft brewing at 6,512 feet elevation. Durango is a special place, with some special beer. Let's get to it.


  1. Good to see you back! I will be even more interested in the Durango area in 2012 as my daughter and her husband are moving to Durango in January. So I expect I'll be visiting Durango once or twice next year. I've only driven past that town once but didn't get to stay and check out the four breweries there. Looking forward to visiting there soon. Cheers and welcome back!

  2. Thanks, Dave. Send me a note when you visit next; maybe we can grab a pint.
