Beer – a worthy topic. Colorado is the land of microbreweries – there are literally several hundred of them scattered throughout the mountains. I’ve sampled a number of their wares and enjoyed quite a few…the cool thing is that you could buy a different 6-pack every day for maybe the rest of your life and not come close to covering it all. Lots of wacky seasonals, too, I’ve noticed.
My favorite to date is Great Divide Yeti Imperial Stout (brewed just a few blocks from Coors Field, btw). If you’re a stout guy, this is the one. This week I’ve got some Deschutes (Bend, OR) Obsidian Stout, also very good. I’ve recently tried Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro, which is a bit too sweet for my taste. Lots of fruit beers here – apple, blueberry, etc., again too sweetsie for me. Some local Oktoberfest pumpkin ale was decent (can’t remember the brewer); there seems to be zillions of pumpkins on the market right now.
I’m curious as to how many local beers show up on the East Coast; they darn sure didn’t appear in the deep South (I was thrilled to find Yueng Black & Tan in ‘bama). Link is to last weekend’s beerfest here in the Springs w/ the breweries represented. Anything look familiar?http://www.allcoloradobeerfestival.com/ ... -brewers//
