This book is a true celebration of our craft beer culture in Colorado, filled with information about 26 of the state’s most successful breweries, their beers, as well as inventive food pairings created by 24 of our most talented chefs.
Additional spreads profile 10 of Colorado’s craft beer-centric bars and taverns.
Developed in cooperation with the Colorado Brewers Guild, the book includes an introduction from guild Executive Director, John Carlson.
