BRU is no hobby, but it's the culmination of Ian Clark's hobbies
Ian Clark is a man of many hobbies. But what sets him apart from the rest of us is his ability to turn his hobbies into a career, not just a drain on discretionary income.
A veteran chef (hobby #1), Clark turned an interest in home brewing (hobby #2) into BRU handbuilt ales & eats, a brewpub in Boulder that he and his wife designed (hobby #3), and then he largely built himself (hobby #4).

"My dad had me up on a roof when I was ten years old," Clark laughs.
Clark was with Big Red F, most recently as the chef of Jax Boulder, when he decided that it was time to merge all of his own hobbies at BRU.
Find out if BRU, which opened this summer, is going to be ground zero for one of your favorite hobbies -- i.e. drinking beer and eating good food -- when my review is posted on westword.com tomorrow.
