Coda Brewing Co.
There's real science behind each sip of beer from Coda Brewing Co. That's all thanks to Luke Smith, a former yeast microbiologist who designs the brewery's fruit beers, double IPAs, sours, and other experimental varieties. Smith previously worked in a University of Colorado laboratory, often stopping by Cedar Creek Pub for a pint on his way home. That's where he met Cedar Creek president Scott Procop—the man with whom he'd eventually create Coda's beer-science concept.
Since opening Coda across the street from Cedar Creek, Smith has made a name for his beers by tapping into his scientific expertise. He incorporates unique yeast strains in brews like the Sleepyhead Imperial Passionfruit Kolsh, which won the Silver Award at the Great American Beer Festival in 2014. The scientific theme carries over to the brewery's glassware—sampler flights, for instance, are served in beakers by bartenders cackling with mad-scientist laughter. But despite all this science, Smith still has a soft spot for the arts, creating beers inspired by the music of some of his favorite bands.
