Brewery #514: @squarepegbrewerks! It's high time Alamosa got another brewery, and Square Peg owners Mark and Derek are working to build something great. The two of them have done almost all of the work on the taproom themselves, Mark brews the beer, and Derek grows all of their base grain! They are also two of the friendliest dudes you'll ever want to meet. I was also on the receiving end of one of the most genuine, enthusiastic handshakes from beertender, Kate. It was overwhelming and flattering to be recognized.

As with most new breweries, two weeks in they are still trying to get all of the kinks worked out, but their enthusiasm, drive, and willingness to learn all give me great hope. I'm stoked to get another taste next time we are in Alamosa.

I can't believe I'm an Advanced Cicerone™! It still hasn't entirely sunk in that I am a member of such a knowledgeable, passionate, dedicated group of individuals (only 28 of us in the world!) And to be only the 2nd woman is so amazing... I guess now I have to figure out what I'm doing with my life since I'm all grown up... #Cicerone #AdvancedCicerone #holyguacamole #stillshaking #chickerone #beergeekess #beer #craftbeer #brewery #craftbreweries #craftbrewing #craftbrewery #breweries #coloradobeer #coloradocraft #coloradocraftbeer #beergeek #wanderlush #wanderlushed #stateofcraftbeer

Enjoying this beautiful June day with an Irish Stout and hot dog while working on some articles for The Colorado Brewery List.

Brewery #516: the not-yet-open @woodsbossbrewing in Denver! An incredible space located right off of Lightrail and close to Great Divide, Jagged Mountain, and one of our favorites, @spangalangbrewery - they are perfectly situated. The interior is huge but cozy and well-styled (yes, there's wood, but unlike other Denver breweries, it actually makes sense). Helmed by brewers Jordan Funk and Ryan Logan, their beer is likely to rise to the top of the brewing heap in Denver in short order. I can't wait for their opening in August.
The fact they are catty-corner from the legendary Mercury Cafe makes me all the more excited.

Three years ago today we stopped by a new brewery just blocks from one of our best friend's houses to check them out after months of emails from the owner touting their qualities and inviting us to check them out. In the intervening years, Zack, Chad, Beez, and BriFi have become great friends of ours.

Happy anniversary (plus a day) to one of our favorite breweries, @chainreactionbrewing! If you're looking for a well-nigh perfect neighborhood brewery, you've found it. You'd be hard-pressed to find friendlier brewery staff who are goofy, dedicated, and genuinely care about their customers and the beer.
Keep making that Lemon IPA or I'll cut you. xoxo

Brewery #513: @crestonebrewingco. I had never been to Crestone, despite innumerable trips through the San Luis Valley. The view driving into town reminds me of the view of the Tetons in Jackson, WY: glorious, rocky peaks suddenly jutting forth from the valley floor. The town itself is a hippie haven in the heart of cowboy country. The brewery itself is cozy, with seating both indoors and out, table service, and food. The pale ale and BGSA were both nice for the hot day.

Brewery #512: Capitol Creek Brewery in Basalt. Upscale brewpub with a 2-story brewhouse. We particularly enjoyed the red IPA and pilsner. I would like to come back to try the excellent looking food.

Brewery #511: @bootstrapbrewing Longmont! A larger version of their Niwot location with the same off-beat vibe. A nice patio out front, cool live music area, and a Christmas tree!

Warning: this location allows littles.

Brewery #510: Rock Bottom Westminster.

TBW: they do actually brew at this location, right?
Me: no. It's all for ambiance. That dude standing over the mash tun stirring is a repurposed Hall of Presidents robot.
TBW: *squints at me*

Brewery #509: @oldcoloradobrewingco in Wellington. This may be the coolest location I've ever seen for a brewery - a 100 year old grain elevator. They have done an incredible job of showing off and enhancing the space with glass ceilings, grain shadow boxes, speaker boxes made to look like the walls, old license plates, etc. The history here - both from the building and the story behind the brewery - makes the who experience richer. Add to all of that one of the friendliest, most enthusiastic owners I have ever met makes this place pretty damn perfect. We had intended to pop in for a quick flight and ended up staying well past closing because of Brandon.
But what about the beer? It was good. The coffee blond was balanced and fun, their sour was complex and carried none of the sour sins, their BA beer had a great Brett funk, and their IRA presented both the malts and hops to great effect. This place is well worth the trip.

5/29/17 Brewery #508 (and last of the trip): @hopdogma. A tiny little brewery with a huge beer list half a block from the water. I wish we could have spent more time here (we made the plane with all of 5 minutes to spare). The Beerd Wrangler liked the Silly Gimmick Double IPA and I supped the Jesse's Fault! Pale Ale.

We also happened to run in Blake, brewer at one of our favorite breweries of The trip, @localbrewingco and were able to leave him with a couple of brews we couldnt bring home with us.

5/29/17 Brewery #507: @hmbbrewingco . It was awesome being so close to such a legendary surfing spot (Mavericks). A comfortable beach brewery with good beer and food with views to match. The Beerd Wrangler was partial to the apricot and passion fruit Belgian blonde and I liked their Full Swing IPA. #wewoulddrink500breweries #brewery500 #500 #california #calicraft #californiabeer #beerdwrangler #beer #craftbeer #brewery #craftbreweries #craftbrewing #craftbrewery #breweries #coloradobeer #coloradocraft #coloradocraftbeer #beergeek #beergeekess #wanderlush #wanderlushed #cicerone #stateofcraftbeer #wanderingrados #chickerone
