Shaver Wendt Chevy II #42

The Shaver/Wendt Chevy II Midget #42 was driven by Grier Manning from 1963-1971 when he retired. The car was well known in the area and competed at local tracks like Pikes Peak Speedway, Sportsman’s, Lakeside Speedway and Englewood to name a few.

August 24, 2017 @ 9:52 am

Written by Gregor Huesgen, owner of Downtown Fine Spirits and Wine When we opened the store a little over 4 years ago most people in the liquor store industry gave us a few months at most. Most traditional liquor stores are built in residential areas, with residents are their biggest customer base. Downtown Colorado Springs did not have a substantial residential population at the time, and any attempts to open a store in the vicinity had failed in the past.

By Paul Vieira, Owner/Brewmaster of Peaks N Pines Brewing Co. Who could have imagined that nearly 40 years ago when I concocted my first batch of home brew, that I would one day be a brewmaster and brewery owner. So how did I get to be Brewmaster? After nearly 4 decades of surviving failed fermentations, stuck mashes, demoralizing infections and exploding bottle episodes, I realized that science and process rule the day, but relying on a pound of confidence and a few ounces of luck is a must for any brewer.
