Colorado Brewmasters Guild Open House
Tuesday night saw some of Colorado's best breweries gather together throughout the Wynkoop Brewery's upstairs pool room for a four hour tour that brought out the who's-who of Colorado beer drinking...we mean..."making." Some excellent seasonal brews were showcased from from Great Divide Brewing and Left Hand as well as some other surprises from such killer Colorado breweries such as Durango Brewing Company, Steamworks, Breckenridge, Boulder Beer Company and the upstart UpSlope Brewing out of Boulder.
A highlight of the night was Breckenridge Brewery's latest canned invention, Lucky U IPA, which you might be able to see nestled into this glorious tub of beer to your right. Although distracted by the brewery's Christmas Ale, we were glad to see Lucky has been packaged and will be on its way to store shelves in the very near (end of month) future.
Some sweet-azz prizes were awarded throughout the evening and although we left before we won a coveted cycling jersey, we're sure it went to someone who isn't in the bartending business...someone who actually gets out of bed before noon for a biking trek through the foothills.
