It seems like everyone wants to be in Colorado, including some big names in craft beer. The second half of 2018 brought several well-knewn breweries to Colorado, or at more accurately, to our liquor store coolers…
Happy New Year’s Eve, everyone! Tonight as we ring in a new year, we’ll also be bidding farewell to an 85-year Colorado tradition – 3.2 beer. Beginning January 1, 2019 retailers across the state who previously only sold 3.2 beer will be stocking the full-strength stuff. Today we’re going to look back at how we got here, and look ahead at what this change means for independent liquor stores and craft beer makers.

We attended the shindig with our buddy and honorary BMT member for the day, Chris. Red Leg Brewing Company certainly knows how […]

It took longer than we expected, but we are back! Well, if we’re being honest, we’re back-ish. We have wrapped up most of the things that have kept us so overwhelmed and busy the past few months, which is great.

That all changes tonight, when we finally get back out there, visit some breweries, and get back to […]

When you take a taste of your favorite beer, do you ever stop to think about the ingredients?
