Bootstrap Brewing

Behind The Brew

The Story

An independent craft brewery, Bootstrap Brewing calls Longmont, Colorado home. Leslie and Steve Kaczeus started the company after leaving their jobs in the high-tech industry to pursue their dream of opening an adventurous craft brewery. 

Steve is a Mechanical Engineer and Program Manager by training and was also an avid home brewer for many years. He graduated from the American Brewer’s Guild in the summer of 2011. Leslie, on the other hand, has a background in marketing. Together, the pair dedicates their efforts and expertise to producing a wide range of high quality ales and lagers.





The Goal

The Bootstrap Brewing goal is simple – they want to make really great beer and have a lot of fun. One of the many ways they work toward this goal is pairing classic rock music with each of their beers. This way, they can rock out and enjoy creating their favorite brews!  


Variety: India Pale Ale

ABV: 7.6%

Taste: A perfect balance of malts and five different hops give this India Pale Ale its edge. The unique blend of citrus and pine aroma and flavor makes it a very drinkable IPA. 

Pairings: Brats, burgers or veggie burgers fresh off the grill.

Molly's Staff Thoughts - Aiden's Pick

“After I moved from the East Coast in 2019, Insane Rush was the first CO beer to really impress me. Of course there are innumerable great beers from CO, but knowing where to start in a new market is tough, especially when you’re fairly picky. The marriage of refreshing East Coast sweetness and inviting West Coast bitterness in this IPA was a perfect introduction to the dynamic and growing CO beer scene.”
