City Star Brewing brings Flap Jack Day Back to Life

citystarCity Star Brewing Company in Berthoud, Colorado is good at bringing things back to life.  Owners John and Whitney Way resurrected the main drag (Mountain Ave.) storefront that houses the brewery and taproom (its previous iterations were a barn and livery), and on September 7, they’ll put a beer-centric twist on an another Berthoud tradition.

In 19flapjackday148, the Town of Berthoud created “Flap Jack Day,” a Labor Day celebration of – you guessed it – flap jacks. The idea was to bring neighbors and visitors together to enjoy a late summer gathering centered on the simple breakfast staple.  The festivities continued for 10 years before the last Flap Jack Queen was crowned in 1958.

This Labor Day (September 7), City Star Brewing will be giving out free flap jacks accompanied by a customized flap jack-themed beer flight (head brewer John Way is currently infusing Palisade peaches into the Rail Rye-der, which will be a delicious complement to a fresh flap jack).  More importantly, the first “Flap Jack Queen” since 1958 will be crowned at the event.  The competition is open to ladies of all ages, and the crown will be awarded to the one who is first to eat five flap jacks. If the bedazzled headware isn’t incentive enough, the first to finish also wins a prize pack from some local Berthoud, Colorado businesses including The Berthoud Inn & Events Center and Brookside Gardens Event Center and Spa.

Donations will be accepted and benefit the Berthoud Historical Society.

    Thank you for getting the word out about Flap Jack Day! We had a very successful event, flipping 1,000 flap jacks, raising $1,000 for the Berthoud Historical Society, and crowning the first Flap Jack Queen in 50 years. Flap Jack Day will definitely be back Labor Day 2016. THANK YOU!
