Founded in 1993 by geologists Charlie and Janine Sturdavant, the Golden City Brewery is a classic mountain town business: the brewery was in a carriage house in the backyard of the couple’s home, while the tasting area was in the living room. Two decades later, Golden’s “second largest brewery” is still in the Sturdavant’s backyard in a residential neighborhood, although the tasting room is now in the carriage house and the brewery includes a small kitchen and an outdoor patio that packs in crowds in the evenings and on weekends. Golden City also has company, as other craft brewers have opened in town, but the business keeps innovating: in 2012, Sarah Henderson took over as head brewer, making her the only woman with that title in the state at the time.
