Shine Restaurant & Gathering Place

Can quaffing a pint enrich your very being? The owners of Shine Restaurant & Gathering Place in Boulder believe so, but it goes well beyond simply producing good food and beer. Triplets Jill, Jessica and Jennifer Emich are committed to offering their guests healthy choices throughout the space.

Shine Brewing Co. is part of the Gathering Place and it’s nestled cozily on a side street in Boulder. One of the few women-owned breweries in Colorado, Shine employs head brewer Mike Kasian for the express purpose of creating great brews infused with rose quartz essence. His Ahimsa Gluten Free Ale won bronze at the 2014 Great American Beer Festival for Best Gluten Free Ale. “Ahimsa is Sanskrit for compassion,” says Jill Emich. “Every brew is infused with rose quartz essence to promote compassion, harmony and unconditional love.” It’s condensed into a liquid form and dropped into the brew directly, Kasian points out.

Shine’s creations go beyond beer. Non-alcoholic, herbal potions are created and infused with a variety of gemstones and flower essences. Each potion is meant to promote positive feelings. The room where the potions are brewed smells of herbs and spices and is almost completely shut out from the sounds of the rest of the Gathering Place.
