The Colorful World of Colorado Beer

The Colorful World of Colorado Beer


It’s easy to become entrapped in images of picturesque, snow-capped mountains; sparkling, blue and white rapids; and gold-dusted plains when you think of Colorful Colorado, but what you don’t think about are the many shades of beer this vibrant state has to offer. With 140+ breweries statewide, Colorado serves up various hues of porters, ales, stouts, sours, and more from the freshest barleys and hops west of the Mississippi.

Many of Colorado’s best brew flavors start with hops. These hops are from Voss Farms in Arvada, Colorado, where Cascade, Centennial, Willamette, and Chinook hops are grown. The popping greens scream summer and life.

CooperSmith's is a staple of the Northern Colorado brewing community. They've been around since 1989 as one of the first brew pubs in Colorado. Horsetooth Stout is a prime example of the great beer they churn out year-after-year.

When it comes to thoughts of winter, I think it’s safe to say that Aspen sums it up. And to keep true to the Aspen culture of playing in the snow, Aspen Brewing Company uses mini skis for their sampler trays.

“Taken at Avery Brewing Company's 4th Annual SourFest, this is a bottle of Odell Brewing Company's Shenanigans Oak Aged Crimson Ale. Cork and cage bottles have always peaked my interest. Whether it's the timeless look, the fact that they're generally used on higher-end products, or the satisfying 'pop' of carbonation when you successfully remove the cork, I'm not sure. But what I do know is that I like drinking beer from them.” -Sean Buchan

Great photos! And that ceramic skirt on the New Belgium mash tank is beautiful. I'm currently helping a microbrewery relocate. They don't have the kind of money needed for that sort of thing, but I'm still going to show the picture to the brewmaster. Maybe it will inspire him :)
