“Bach and Beer was hosted at Horse & Dragon Brewery this year – a small and cozy brewery filled with nice mix of different folks. Joel Bacon, Stewart and Sheron Golden Chair in Organ and Liturgical Studies at Colorado State University, set up to put his unique spin on some of the classics by Bach. The ticket price included two beers and appetizers provided by Enzio’s with the music for the evening. It was a very intimate, personal performance. I absolutely loved it.

Some friends and I sat back to enjoy the music with beers in hand – music that filled the room with tangible energy. It was fantastic to be so close and personal, to see every keystroke from mere feet away. Joel seemed to have a lot of fun with the technology of the keyboard that allowed him to test out techniques that mimicked a theremin. By stretching some creative boundaries, the audience was brought into the humor of newfangled electronics, with a few hearty chuckles as we listened to “far out” renditions that could have very well been the soundtrack to a space documentary.

The intensity of Joel’s performance was mesmerizing, steam rising from the fermenters and mash tun behind him as if smoke were coming from his ears. There were moments that were stunningly impressive, the energy of the performance drawing us in. ”
