Launch Pad Brewery
launchpadbrewery.com
When you find out that
Launch Pad Brewery was
founded by two Air Force
veterans not far from
Buckley Air Force Base,
the creative names for
handcrafted ales served
up in a welcoming rocketthemed
taproom suddenly make
sense. Expect more than 30 delicious
beers on tap, including options such as a
Blastoff Brown Ale, Voyager fruited sour,
Kosmonaut K├Âlsch, They Go Up So Fast
session IPA, and seasonals like Marshian
Moon pumpkin/yam milk stout and Airglow
Saison with ginger and carrot among the
ingredients. Check Launch Pad's online
calendar for a schedule of food trucks
and special events like free yoga, beer
releases, a Halloween party and more.
The concept for Launch Pad Brewery
began in 2014 after a party with friends.
David Levesque was working for
Lockheed Martin when he and his wife,
Erin, hosted a pumpkin-themed party in
October. One of their friends suggested
that David, an avid home brewer, make
a pumpkin beer for the party that ended
up receiving rave reviews. The next day,
he started working on a business plan for
a brewery and talked to his best friend,
Henry Rusch, who came up with a name
and logo. The two opened the business
less than a year later in July 2015. Today,
David serves as brew master and Erin as
general manager while Henry beertends,
works for Raytheon and serves in the Air
Force Reserves at Buckley AFB.
