The City of Longmont and the Longmont Economic Development Partnership host to our next edition of Beers & Gears. We will be touring a Manufacturer’s Edge Transformational Company, Custom Microwave. They will discuss the progress and changes made under our guidance and show off technology pioneered for the aerospace industry. There will also be tours of Longmont’s TinkerMill, where several small manufacturing companies sharing work space and innovate new techniques and technology for many industries.

We will conclude the tours with one of Colorado’s finest microbreweries, Left Hand Brewing Company. Left Hand has been producing award winning innovative beers since 1994, and is excited to showcase their facility and processes, and of course, their beer.

This event is sponsored by BKD CPAs & Advisors. Every year at the Colfax Marathon they have a contest called the “Manufacturer’s Cup” where teams of manufacturers from around the state compete in the marathon for the honor of making their facility home to the Manufacturer’s Cup trophy. The trophy will be awarded by BKD to the winner of the Manufacturer’s Cup during the happy hour session following the tours.

As always, out of respect for our sponsors, Beers & Gears is for Manufacturers only. We also ask that unless you are part of one of the companies/teams that competed for the Manufacturer’s Cup, to please limit registrations to no more than 3 people per company. If you have any questions on registration please contact Marketing Manager, Nathan Morimitsu.
