Danny Wang, with Fermly: Craft Beer Laboratory, samples a beer during a visit to Smiling Toad Brewery on the west side of Colorado Springs in January. The Denver-based independent quality control and quality assurance lab, run by Danny and Emily Wang, helped the brewery get to the root of a mysterious problem plaguing its beers after it reopened in a new location last March.
