Gluten-Free and Vegan Wraps at Brewing Market in BoulderBy Evan Sandsmark -
Boulder has a lot of coffee shops, and it is hard to distinguish yourself in an environment in which seemingly every block has a place that sells coffee, and good coffee at that. One way to stand out, though, is to make your own food, and this is what Brewing Market has done with the introduction of their new hummus and falafel wraps. This wouldn’t necessarily be of note to us but for the fact that one of these wraps is gluten-free; and, as an added bonus, the one wrap that is gluten-free also happens to be vegan. So, in addition to good coffee and a broad variety of teas, including a great hand-brewed chai, you can now get gluten-free and vegan wraps when you stop by Brewing Market.
The history of Brewing Market is one of expansion – what started as a small booth on Pearl Street has blossomed into a six-store franchise – so we weren’t surprised when we learned that they had started their own food line, and we also weren’t particularly surprised when we found out that they made these “at their warehouse.” So, there is evidently a Brewing Market warehouse, one where, among other things, gluten-free and vegan wraps are prepared for the company’s six locations. Three of these locations, including the original store, are in Boulder, two are in Longmont, and one is in Lafayette. (For the record, the store in Lafayette – the somewhat clumsily named Espresso Vino – is part coffee shop and part wine bar, so it’s distinct from the other five Brewing Markets. It’s also the only Brewing Market location – on 95th just south of Arapahoe – that has a drive-through.)
We haven’t exhaustively analyzed the supply at all their different locations, so we can’t assess the likelihood of finding one of the gluten-free wraps at whatever store you frequent, but they seem to have a decent supply when we’ve stopped in over the last few weeks. As always, though, there is a greater chance of finding them earlier in the day. Also, we’ve only seen one type of gluten-free wrap at Brewing Market – the hummus wrap pictured above – so the stock of the GF version might dwindle faster than the rest.
