Tune In With City Star

We live in a world that our ways of connecting with each other is ever evolving, City Star Brewing has created a new way to connect with their audience. Since August of 2022 they have asked their patrons to “tune in” to their Hazy IPA radio series. With every Hazy IPA beer they release comes a new Spotify playlist. The brewery playlists are built off of what the brewers were listening to while brewing that particular Hazy IPA recipe. The song playlists have different themes with matching vibes for the can art. The music varies from 2000’s pop, grunge rock, Indie, country and more. This month City Star will be releasing their 6th beer in the radio line up, Hazy IPA 80’s New Wave Radio. The funky 80’s neon cans will release in the taproom 11/27. This music station includes songs from Ah-ha, Talking Heads, Soft Cell and more. To listen to the music beer drinkers can simply scan the QR code on the City Star can of beer to be connected with it’s matching playlist.

City Star Brewing isn’t just about the beer but also the experience. The small town Berthoud, Colorado taproom prides themselves on their hometown feel and community. The Hazy IPA radio music series is a way to “tune-in” to the taproom and feel a part of their community even when you’re enjoying their craft beer to-go. Their goal is to create a little more connection, and a lot more great craft beer! Come in Friday, November 27th for the release of the newest Hazy IPA with food truck and live music.

Berthoud Flips Over Flapjack Day

150 150 City Star Brewing

Flapjack Day, a Labor Day tradition that began in Berthoud in the 1940s and was renewed by Star City Brewing in 2015, returned to Berthoud Monday.

The celebration, originally the domain of the local Chamber of Commerce, was eventually discontinued in 1958 because it became too large to maintain. That changed in 2015 when Star City Brewing bartender Ian Phillips noticed an old photograph on the wall of the brewery depicting the event, and he became determined to bring it back.

Since then the event has ballooned, even overcoming an unexpected two-year hiatus during the COVID-19 pandemic, to establish itself as a community tradition once again.

“I think that it has,” said Diane Levy, director of the Berthoud Historical Society and one of the main organizers and flapjack flippers during the festivities. “For an example, several people have said ‘I missed it last year, I couldn’t make it. So I changed my travel plans to be here this time.’”

Donations at Flapjack Day benefit the Historical Society, especially important, said Levy, now that they are no longer running annual galas, one of the society’s main fundraisers.

For the first time, donations could also be made online or with credit cards, as opposed to past years when they were limited to cash stuffed into jars by grateful attendees.

“As the person handing out the pancakes most of the morning, I just kept saying ‘The Historical Society thanks you!’” Levy said.

Pancakes are not the only attraction to Flapjack Day though.

Taking place at a brewery in the late morning and early afternoon, flights of breakfast beers are on sale at City Star Brewing, with part of the proceeds benefiting the Historical Society. A classic car show allows collectors and others to peek under the hood of old Model T’s, Corvette’s, and other classics stretched down First Street in Berthoud, and live music, this year provided by the Vern Neeley Vibe, was presented in the late afternoon.

The Flapjack Queen Contest, a women-only eating competition where contestants race to house five flapjacks faster than the rest, had a few changes this year.

The most notable was an absence. Reigning Flapjack Queen Lynsey Morgan, who has emerged victorious by considerable margins in the last five Flapjack Queen contests, chose to retire this year, although she did bring her family to the event in order to crown the winner and to eat pancakes at a more modest pace.

Her successor, Lexy Seeley, licked her plate clean at the 2:10 mark.

“I got some pointers from the queen herself,” she said, gesturing at Morgan who was standing nearby. “It definitely helps to have somebody who has battle experience.”

Phillips, the bartender who renewed the tradition in 2015, has shifted careers from “slinging beers to slinging houses,” but still hosts the event and the eating competition.

“The generosity of everyone who shows up and donates, as well as the sponsors, is what keeps this alive,” Phillips said. “And we’re hoping to keep doing it. Because it is just a real community event where everybody gets together to do something cool.”
