Hi! I’m Eric. I am one of the owners of MainStage Brewing Company in Lyons. I am starting to gear up our music booking now that we are open and would love to open the floodgates to anyone who wants to throw music ideas our way. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We get loads of emails, and running our business is already more than full-time so I definitely don’t respond to every booking email, but I do listen to every single incoming idea. We are open to booking just about anything but as a downtown outdoor spot we are sensitive to the impact to our neighbors and local residents, so some of the louder or less family friendly genres are a little trickier (but there is a time and place for everything).
All gigs are paid, all gigs have full sound provided. Pay depends on our budget, night of the week and a million other things.
Stoked we are getting back to live music, real crowds, and some of that great, beer drinking, weather.
Located in Lyons, CO MainStage Brewing was founded in 2020 by Sam Scruby and Eric Kean.
MainStage Brewing is about beer….seems kinda obvious, but for us it’s more than that. For thousands of years humankind has come together to bend elbows and enjoy each other’s company. The power of a couple of pints among good friends is unparalleled. Here in a great town with wonderful weather and one of the best music communities in the world the opportunities to gather are endless. MainStage is all about putting experience first, whether it’s seeing friends for the first time in a while, catching a killer local band, or just feeling the sun on your face with cold beer in your hand.
Don’t mistake us though, we are serious about beer. The beauty of perfection is what drives us. Whether it is a classic American Lager or IPA, or a wicked barrel-aged foreign stout, our goal is to put a perfect product in the glass at the perfect moment in the perfect place. Perfection to us is quality, service, atmosphere, and community. It’s making sure that moment is as perfect as that beer.
Who are we? We are Sam and Eric.
