Did anyone else wake up this morning to realize that June is nearly over? Sunday we’ll be rolling into July, and maybe it’s just us, but this summer seems to be flying by. It’s enough to make us think about that quote from the famous prophet of our generation: “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” Yessir, that Abe Froman certainly knows what he’s […]
Durango, Colorado is a special town and very close to our heart. For the past several years we’ve been one of the many folks who make the trek to Durango every summer. Initially, our trips were all about the beer, but very quickly the visits grew into so much more. Now we visit Durango for the charm of the town itself. We love the buildings filled with history, the incredible beauty, the long list of […]
Warm weather is here, which in Denver really means just one thing: patio season! When the days are sunny and warm, we like drinks that are refreshing and cold. If the summer weather puts you in the sipping mood too, we have just the thing for you – the Passport Program Summer Edition. We attended the Denver Passport launch party recently and were given a copy of this year’s Denver Passport Summer Edition. It was […]
Time to Plan Your Road Trip: The 22nd Annual Colorado Brewers Rendezvous Takes Place in Salida on July 14
There is something about summertime in Colorado that always makes us want to explore. We love to pack our car up for the weekend and hit the road, discovering new places and taking in all the beauty and adventure Colorado offers along the route. Of course, it’s even better when there’s great craft beer at the end of the trip, which is why we’re big fans of the Colorado Brewers Rendezvous. This fantastic beer fest […]

Colorado craft beer scored big at the 2018 World Beer Cup. At the award ceremony held in Nashville last night, 28 World Beer Cup awards were given to Colorado breweries, including 7 golds medals. Winners came from cities throughout the state and included several returning champs plus many first-time winners. And while Colorado received 4 fewer awards than they did at the last World Beer Cup, 28 is an incredible accomplishment considering this year’s competition […]

It also features a craft beer bar with 100 beers on tap, focusing on delicious craft beers from Colorado and beyond.
Springtime in Colorado is anything but boring. One day we’re drinking on the patio in shorts and flip-flops. The next day our patio furniture is covered in snow. Sun, rain, snow, wind… anything goes this time of year. Sometimes spring weather can be just plain ugly. Fortunately, summer is just around the corner and ready to bring with it some sunshine, warm breezes, and plenty of seasonal summer beers. One of last year’s summer brews […]
Happy 420 Day, everyone! While we aren’t out partaking in any 420 Day festivities personally, we thought today seemed like an appropriate day to write about the latest release from New Belgium Brewing Company: The Hemperor HPA. The beer actually hit the market a bit earlier this month, but something about today made it seem extra relevant. Let’s take a look at this new release and the challenges craft breweries face when trying to make […]
We made it to Friday, y’all. What a roller coaster of a week we had in Colorado. In our home-base of Castle Rock it snowed one week ago on Friday. That was followed by several very warm (albeit windy) summer-like days. This morning we awoke to find snow on the ground once again. We’ve enjoyed the full weather spectrum in just one week. Isn’t springtime in Colorado fun? Speaking of fun, are you still looking for […]
