In mid May, FSW is attending the Bacon and Beer Classic at Mile High Stadium. We are so honored to be one of a very few vendors (non-brewery or non-restaurant) invited to attend.
This event has given us an opportunity to collaborate with brewers who are participating to create soaps from their best-selling beers and from the beers they are highlighting at this event!
Our most exciting collaboration is with Breckenridge Brewery of Littleton, Colorado. They have worked with us to create the signature soap for the event. We have created a soap from the beer Breckenridge is featuring, Vanilla Porter, and their Farm House Restaurant, furnished us with lard from the bacon being featured. We had the most fun creating a soap that will be fabulous, mild and moisturizing using these ingredients! We haven’t forgotten about our vegetarian and vegan friends, we created a Vanilla Porter Soap with all vegetable oils too! The little pig peeking out from the soap indicates the lard soap.
Our staunchest supporter, Avery Brewing Company, has collaborated with FSW since our very first year. The loyalty and support of the great folks at Avery have been so inspiring. Over the course of collaboration, we have created so many beer soaps, El Gose, Vanilla Bean Stout, Out of Bounds Stout, Raspberry Sour, Coconut Porter, White Rascal, Liliko’i Kepolo, Real Peel, Tangerine Quad, Apricot Sour, Perzik Saison, Chai High and Rumpkin!
Kokopelli Beer Company of Westminster, Colorado has trusted us with several of their best brews and we have created fun soaps to complement their fabulous brew list. Razzmataz, Berryana, Blarney Stone, Day of the Dead and All About Spice
Left Hand Brewing Company of Longmont, Colorado gave FSW a chance to produce soaps for their top of the line brews, Milk Stout and Juicy Goodness!
Another Brewery we collaborated with for this event is Odyssey Beerwerks of Arvada, Colorado. We let our imagination run wild with their new offering, Eye of Ra! Psycho Penguin Vanilla Porter is a big star at the Beerwerks and we loved creating our take on their signature porter. Oh Snap is Odyssey’s winter ale and is scented with winter spices.
Sanitas Brewing of Boulder, Colorado also joined with us to create something exciting for the Bacon and Beer Classic. The trusted us with their Saison and the mysterious Black IPA. We try very hard to capture the essence of the brew and the thoughts of the brew master as each brew is created.
Fate Brewery of Boulder, Colorado has joined FSW to create three soaps from their favorite Brews, Uror Gose, Apollo Tsai and Coffee IPA.
Zephyr Brewing has joined our collaborative venture with their delicious and divine smelling Peanut Butter Porter
Some of our favorite brews come from very small companies who produce their brew with passion. Mama Bear of Boulder is one of those breweries. The combination of sweet tea and pale wheat ale is to die for!
One of our favorite collaborations was with Strange Craft Beer Company of Denver, Colorado. They shared their Breakfast Grapefruit IPA. Our customers love this fresh grapefruit scented soap!
Industrial Revolution Brewery of Erie, Colorado furnished us with their new and wildly popular Blonde Stout to create a soap that represents their awesome product.
Upslope Brewing Company of Boulder, Colorado furnished FSW with its Premiere pour, Citra Pale Ale
Ska Brewing of Durango, Colorado has a fabulous pour, Autumnal Molé Stout, spiced with south of the border peppers.
Nothing is better than a coffee stout and Horse and Dragon Brewery of Ft. Collins, Colorado produces one of the best – Sad Panda Coffee Stout. We all love how the soap turned out with its cute little coffee bean topper!
Something Brewery of Brighton, Colorado has imaginative brews and even more imaginative brew names! We especially love the Plum Walker with the Zombie on the label and we made a fun Zombie looking soap!
Another tons of fun brewery is Big Choice Brewing of Brighton, Colorado. The soap we made for the is one of our favorites (we love the name), Tarts and Crafts! Lime ale with a cherry on top!
For those who have gluten issues, we have not forgotten you! We have a Hard Cider soap from Wild Cider of Firestone, Colorado. The scent is heavenly and it looks good too!
Denver Beer Company of Denver, Colorado is working with FSW on a trial basis. This is our version of their awe-inspiring Pretzel Assassin.
4 Noses Brewing Company of Broomfield, Colorado was reluctant to share their Logo for our soaps but they have been very supportive and have allowed us to name their brewery and beer name, El Jefe and Bareback Blonde in the description on our label. We love these soaps!
Fun soaps and mysterious brewers. There are a few breweries who chose not to collaborate with any soap maker for their own mysterious reasons and we respect that but we did have such great fun making the soap!
We are preparing for this event every day. We have the best beer soaps and we are ready to travel!
