BH has been for over a century a synonym of bicycles, cycling, sportsmanship and self-improvement. Many children have given their first and hesitant turn of the pedals with a BH bicycle, and legendary cyclists have also been created on many of these bikes.
The journey of BH (Beistegui Hermanos) in the industry initiated in Eibar (Guipuzkoa, Spain), a city of arms manufacturers, in 1909 as a result of the genius and enterprising spirit of three brothers: Cosme, Domingo and Juan Beistegui Albistegui.
The company, which was founded as an arms manufacturer, gave a radical 180-degree turn following the First World War, and it set out to provide a fast, comfortable and economic means of transport for the citizens of Eibar. The result was the development of very light, agile and reliable bicycles.
This is how one of the current cycling icons and one of the most successful and consolidated brands was born. From that point onwards and as a result of its technological advances and abiding commitment to sport, BH has achieved a series of sporting triumphs and has contributed with several innovations to the world of cycling.
By 1935, BH was firmly settled in the Spanish cycling scene. The BH team had one of the best cyclists of the day in its ranks, the Belgian Gustave Deloor(1913 - 2002), who won the first two editions of the Vuelta a España in 1935 and 1936. Up to this date, BH has won seven Vueltas a España, the last one in 1986 with Alvaro Pino.In that edition, the team Zor-BH also came first in the team classification.
Fede Etxabe achieved another historical triumph in 1987 by winning the legendary Alpe d’Huez stage of the Tour de France and becoming the first Spanish cyclist to include his name in one of its 21 bends. In more recent times, BH has been the provider of several cycling teams, such as Liberty Seguros or AG2R.
In line with its success in sport, BH also grew and extended the frontiers of its activity.
In 1959, BH moved to a more modern and larger plant in Vitoria, from which it has developed high quality bicycles and components for all cycling disciplines: road, mountain, all terrain, electric and even fitness and elliptical bicycles. The technological innovations developed by BH, such as the NEO range, the Ultralight frames, the Global Concept and the Lynx double suspension for MTBs, has allowed the brand to continue being ahead of its time and offer solutions to the demands made by the two-wheel enthusiasts.
100 years later, the Beistegui family are still at the head of BH and continue to maintain the essence of a company that remains true to the values it was founded upon: innovation, research and technological development; social and environmental responsibility; dynamism, commitment, reliability and trustworthiness; and, above all, its passion for bicycles. And all this with the aim of continuing to offer sport and health products to the entire world.

It’s inevitable. Robots will take over the earth some day. If it starts here, that will be a good thing. That’s because our machines (and our humans) make beer. A variety of tasty standards and some exceptional seasonal and unique offerings. Here, we embrace the local, from our home in Jefferson Park right next to Mile High Stadium, to our all Colorado-made complete brewing system.
Stop by for a draw from our 10 barrel system, and there’s a good chance you’ll start to believe. Cheers!

Somewhere out in Colorado, in the year nineteen hundred and ninety-five, two guys named Dave and Bill learned that while they loved gulping down good beer, they weren’t yet old enough to buy it. They figured an answer to their quandary would appear if they drank enough and listened to enough thinking music, also know as Ska. On the second Skaturday of Skaetember it hit them. If they brewed their own beer they’d have all the beer they could ever want. And while they were at it, why not brew the most magnificent suds ever quaffed in their neck of the woods…or any other neck for that matter.

Elsewhere in the world forces were conspiring to conglomerize and corporatize all of beerdom. Wheels were in motion to turn what was once an art mastered by those attracted to the science of handys, into a mechanized mire of swill so sullen it zombifies all who drink it. The black clouds of an evil empire were gathering with one singular, maniacal mission – take total control and destroy the craft of brewing forever. Little did our heroes know that it would be up to them to save us all and make the world safe for good tasty beer once more…
