    Nicole Paradisa is the owner and pastry chef at Colie’s Cakes & Pastries. She graduated in Denver, CO, with an AS in Baking and Pastry as well as a BS in Business Management. After graduation, she packed up her memories and returned home to earn some ‘dough,’ while still in search for a Pastry Chef position elsewhere. However, she was not aware of the impact her small hometown would have on her sweet talent as she share through pastries.Nicole had the privilege of working with some top chefs in the Denver area. Places like Babettes Artisan Breads where she learned their craft of artesian breads, The Brown Palace where she learned mass production of bread baking, and was a Pastry Chef at the number one steakhouse in Denver, Guard and Grace. Late 2016, Nicole took a small leap of faith and became a licensed bakery. Colie’s Cakes & Pastries is located in southern most city of Colorado along the I-25 corridor, TrinidadA major issue at work in rural communities is the loss of youth, especially when that youth doesn’t return.



    Yet, conversely, when a young person is able to leave a rural city like Trinidad, go out into the world and learn and then return with that knowledge — it makes our community a much richer place.

    In the late 1800’s, German immigrant Martin Walter purchased The Pueblo Brewery for $7,000 and in the tradition of his brothers in Wisconsin established his own brewery, thus the tradition of The Walter’s Brewing Company began in Pueblo. Brewed with clean Colorado water, the company supplied brews under dozens of labels in more than 20 states and became a Pueblo legend. In 1975 the brewery property sold and the doors of Walter’s were closed by the new owner. Fast forward to early 2014 when a group of Puebloans obtained the pre-prohibition pilsner recipe from the Walter Family descendants.



    In addition to the Walter’s Original, Walter’s Brewery and Taproom also makes several varieties of beers every generation of drinkers will appreciate–from our great city’s forebears who labored at the steel mill and in Pueblo businesses of all types; to modern craft-beer drinkers, artists, Bohemians, and bicyclists who keep Pueblo lively today.  All proof that some things never change with time and that great beer binds us all in good cheer!
