Brewery number one is new, and brewery number two is Three Four, who has been selling beer for a while, just not Three Four Beer beer. Confused? It’s simple really!

As Colorado residents, we’re honestly pretty much over all the hype around legalized weed.

Hey there. Yeah, we know, it’s been a while. It’s all very awkward to start writing again when we’ve been clearly negligent for several weeks…. or months. We won’t bore you with the same old stale excuses, but suffice it to say that major work projects and other happenings have just occupied all our time.
