Gone is one of the last remnants of Colorado’s first craft brewery in Boulder.
Boulder Beer Co. at 2880 Wilderness Place, closed about a year and a half ago, was sold by the founders of the brewery.
Founders Gene and Frank Day through the 2880 Wilderness Inc. donated a building of approximately 19,000 square feet to Iron 26 LLC for $ 4.25 million.
Iron 26 is a subsidiary of the Denver-based NexCore Group that develops office medical real estate.
The facility was built in 1984 and expanded in the 1990s. It has always been home to the Boulder Beer.
“When it was built, all the owners engraved their initials on the sidewalk outside the building,” said commercial real estate broker Geoffrey Keys. “There’s a lot of Boulder history there.”
Brokers Skye Commercial Inc. Keyes, George Ryan, and Ronan Truesdale represented the salesperson, and NexCore represented itself.
Gina and Frank Day sold Boulder Beer production equipment and recipes at the end of 2019 to Sleeping Giant Brewing Co. from Denver, which has revamped its image and brand this year.
Although Boulder no longer has a beer bar, Sleeping Giant President and Founder Matthew Osterman told BizWest in February that he plans to open a new Boulder Beer-branded brew pub in the city over the next few years.
Over the past several decades, NexCore has acquired or developed several other medical projects in the region, including facilities in Louisville and Longmont.
