For the past two years, we’ve made the 6 hour trip to Durango for the Ska Brewing Anniversary Party each September. But while Ska Brewing is our destination, it’s only one stop in our journey. We make the most of this road trip by visiting our favorite places along the route, which always includes a stop to the fun and lovely town of Pagosa Springs.
Last weekend we took a road trip to Durango for Ska Brewing’s annual Anniversary Party and Brewers Invitational. You can read about it here. During our road trip we traveled through several great cities – big and small – a few of which had breweries. It seemed rude not to stop, so we did whenever we could. Today we want to tell you about our first stop in Alamosa to visit San Luis Valley Brewing […]
Jeff and I are not what you would call good planners. With so many fun things to choose from each weekend, we rarely know what we’re going to do until we’re halfway there. Case in point, it was a lazy Saturday morning a few weeks back when we had no plans and were still in our pajamas figuring out what to do. I happened to look back over our very own event calendar, (plug!) where […]
Spring has sprung people! While we still get the occasional cooler weather pattern traipsing through our state, the sunny and warm days are beginning to outnumber the chilly ones. It’s about fucking time, wouldn’t you say? I mean, winter in Colorado is lovely and not even as snowy as people who live outside the state seem to imagine, but this year it’s totally over-stayed its welcome. Spending a lazy afternoon sipping drinks on a sunny […]
Golden, Colorado. Beer lovers know it as the home of the Coors Brewery, but there is so much more to the Golden. There a cute little historic district full of places to eat, drink, and shop on Washington Avenue. There is the Colorado School of Mines, one of the top engineering and applied science universities in the country. There is also quite a lot of outdoor recreational spots, such as Clear Creek, where you can […]
Okay, not really. But who could resist an Almost Famous quote whenever you get the chance to drop one? And while neither of us is a Golden God per se, we did recently visit Golden, Colorado and had a heavenly time exploring the city and touring the Coors Brewery.
As you may gather by our increased posts, the past few weeks have been immensely fun and extremely busy. On Sunday morning we awoke to find that we had no plans! The family visitors were already on the road, and the calendar was blank. What a blessing! We decided to take a little time off for ourselves and enjoy a little free time together. We took the top off the Wrangler and hit the road […]
So if there is one downfall to drinking a lot of good craft beer, it has to be the little extra poundage it can add to your midsection if you’re not careful. Yep, the good old beer belly. It’s a never-ending battle to be able to consume lots of yummy craft beers, without causing too much damage on the scale. This is why when we planned a little brewery excursion to Boulder on Sunday, July […]
A few months ago, Jeff and I were headed to Longmont for a bike ride when we snuck in a quick detour to Fort Collins. Despite being in town just a couple of hours, we were able to make three brewery stops, albeit very quick ones. We promised that someday we’d be back to spend more time with these great breweries, and maybe we’d even bring our friends. Well, consider it done! We decided to […]
This weekend was a hot one in Denver. Temperatures were expected to peak 100° F, so we were looking for any way to keep cool. Lucky for us, Saturday afternoon the 2012 Summit of Bluegrass and Brews was taking place in Dillon, Colorado. Dillon is located in the Rocky Mountains where it’s considerably cooler, and this particular event was right along the beautiful shores of Lake Dillon. Obviously, there was no reason for us to […]
After our G’Knight Ride, we spent the night in Longmont. Partially this was because we knew we’d be drinking and wanted to be responsible. But it was also so we could fit in a few more brewery stops before we made the trek back home. It’s a good thing we stayed too because someone left his debit card at the Tasty Weasel last night – DOH! Given that we now had a good excuse to […]
