So far I've biked to:
Crooked Stave at the Source
Black Shirt Brewery
Denver Beer Company
Cannonball Creek Brewery
I drove to:
Vine Street Pub
That means I've visited approximately 6.8% of Colorado's 189 breweries. Something about crossing those breweries off my list made me wonder, what if I biked to all of the breweries in Colorado? I might have been slightly inspired by the first hikers to hike to and up all 53 of the 14,000 foot mountains in Colorado. It's something I'd really like to do (the biking not all the hiking), even though my first climb on the way up to Golden left me breathless and looking for hill avoidance routes on the way home. But I'm acclimating both to the thinner air and the idea that if I'm going on a long term bike trek, I should probably try out some lengthier and more difficult trips. What better motivation is there than visiting a brewery for the first time?
|Sometimes the best beer is the one you climbed 1,000 feet over two miles for.
Hogshead (which I always want to call Hogsmeade)
Copper Kettle Brewing
Bull & Bush
Suggestions and tips are always welcome. I'll be working on this section of Colorado first. Plenty of breweries to choose from.
