Variety of Spirits, Liqueurs, and Bitters made from Colorado Beet Sugar Spirits. Distilled in Dotsero, Colorado.
First, the most important step with making any alcohol, clean, clean, clean, and sanitize. Then almost 1 ton of sugar, refined from sugar beets, is poured into “Twinkie” to heat it and dissolve it into what we call a “wash”. From there it is pumped into one of the 1000 gallon temperature controlled Fermentors. At this point we add the yeast and a secret cocktail of very important nutrients to keep the yeast fat and happy. 2 weeks later we have something that resembles a mix between Japanese sake, and white wine. A 10.5% alcohol that actually tastes quite good. That is then pumped back into “Twinkie” and heated to boiling, were it will remain for most of the day as we capture and refine the alcohol vapor that is pushed through our 12 foot tall distillation column. Once the heads and tails are set aside, we have around 40 gallons of high proof Beet Sugar Spirits to use as need to make the whole lineup of Stoneyard Products.

George H. Jones began his career as an artist at a very early age with graphite renderings and painting in watercolors but soon progressed to oils, a medium he has adopted for the last 25 years. Jones, a Texas native and longtime Dallas resident, is one of a limited number of established artists whose body of work captivates the attention of private and public collectors across the country. Working in large format, Jones’ paintings invoke eccentricity through the use of impressionist shapes and color. https://www.georgejonesart.com/
Charles Sherman's work is inspired by a lifelong study of ancient civilizations, world cultures and religions. His philosophy of life and art has always been the same: to promote the positive. The forms he creates are minimalist, conceptual and inspired by sacred geometry. In 2002, Sherman began investigating sculptural forms that express the concept of infinity, especially the three-dimensional Möbius form or continuum, to create ceramic Infinity Ring sculptures. He hand builds in clay, using the most primitive sculpture tools and coil or slab construction techniques. Sometimes he applies glass mosaic to the ceramic, or transform the work into bronze or stainless steel. Sherman's most recent body of work, the Miracle Towers, is based on variations of tetrahedron and pyramid forms, in welded and hand-brushed stainless steel, or cold-pressed steel with glass mosaic or various patinas. Sherman's sculptures are designed to emit positive energy to the environment. His intention is to elevate the spirit of the viewer. www.CharlesShermanArt.com
Peter has been an artist for as long as he can remember and still proudly displays the ceramic dinosaur he made when he was just four years old. However, since 1986 he has solely worked in watercolors. Peter has shown his artwork in juried shows and galleries throughout the country since winning numerous awards. Peter's free-flowing style makes his watercolors unique. Peter is a mood painter creating an impression of his sublet matter through the use of bold and energetic colors. Peter's greatest satisfaction comes from the donation to worthy causes such as Habitat for the Humanity, the American Heart Association, the American Breast Cancer Society, Children’s Hospice House among others and was commissioned by Johns Hopkins in Baltimore where he produced some 50 originals for their surgery wing, Recently, Wake Forest’s University’s new neonatal center approached Peter to paint the signature piece for the entrance to their new center and his 48 x 60 inch “Baby Bear” adorns the entrance. His work is bright and bold watercolors that adhere to wood panels treated with a preservative. https://peter-freischlag.squarespace.com/

Slantbrush Studio's creator Matt Rinn has always been inspired by his love of the outdoors. When looking at his work one can see the influence of the four elements: earth, water, wind, and fire. Matt's unique approach also uses flow and movement from his favorite sports: soccer, board sports, mountain biking, and whitewater kayaking. Some favorite techniques he incorporates in his pieces are long lines, free fluid strokes, unique structural foundations, and upward ramp like curves. His intention and end goal is to bring to life the sometimes overlooked natural beauty in everything and everyone in this life. Remember to take an extra few minutes to look a little deeper and a little closer into Matt's creations. Most likely, an unexplained surprise with in his art await your discovery!

By blending two of natures alluring elements, wood and stone, Tina creates functional, culinary accessories. Her Cutting Boards, Gathering Boards, Serving Platters and Dipping Trays will elevate your daily or special occasions.
Tina meticulously searches through arborists’ wood lots looking for the perfectly flawed, cracked and knot filled hardwoods that other woodworkers pass by because of these deficits. She chooses smaller pieces of wood that will be enhanced with Stone like turquoise, lapis, malachite or chrysocolla, and inlays these into these cracks and voids. Following a similar method to the Japanese art of Kintsugi, where broken and fractured pottery is mended with gold or silver dust, thereby restoring the fragments to a functional and more beautiful piece. http://knot-wong.squarespace.com/
Marilyn's art is reverse painting on acrylics. Yep, she paints in reverse from the most forward elements of the piece to the furthest back. You have to see it in person to truly appreciate its magic.

Painting in a modern impressionist style, Marilyn's art is infused with brilliant light and color. Her use of textured, bold brush strokes magnifies the vivid impressionist style.
