A couple of years ago, on a ferry from Seattle to Vashon Island, a man asked his son what his ideal career would be. The son said the only thing he'd ever wanted to do was run a small brewery. The father shrugged this idea off, more or less. The next year, the same man called his son and suggested they actually build a small brewery. On February 17th of 2007, Boulder Dam Brewing Co. opened its doors to Boulder City.
In 2002, I was given my first home-brew set-up from a friend. Several months later, and several bad beers later, I brewed a porter that was, in my opinion, as good as any I had ever had. I was shocked. And, I was hooked. Within a few months, home-brewing was more important to me than running the advertising company I had owned for seven years. A few years later, I retired from the industry.
Boulder Dam Brewing Co. is truly a family business. My parents, Toby and Gail Cook, in no small way helped to bring a dream of brewing for a living to reality. My sister, Lisa Combs, a teacher at the local elementary school, works with us as well. Her two youngest, Trevor and Taylor, and my daughter Ashlen, are also getting their feet wet, so to speak, in the family business.
