A Look Inside Denver’s Laws Whiskey House

Now we don’t pretend to know much about whiskey, but we know what we like, and this was some good stuff. At the release party we enjoyed whiskey flights, a really fantastic whiskey cocktail, and received a tour of the distillery. It was the first open house event of the year for Laws […]

Getting Frisky with Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey

“Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough.”  – Mark Twain We don’t know about too much, but now and then it’s fun to set the beer stein aside and belly up to the bar for something a bit stronger.  Recently we got just the opportunity to do that thanks to Yelp Denver and the folks over at Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey.  We had signed up for the Yelp’s Secret Sipper […]
