Colorado Hops Boom on the Western Slope

Colorado is no stranger to great brews. The MillerCoors empire expands across nearly 600 acres in Golden and brings some of the nation’s favorite beers. Still, there is no question that Colorado has experienced an explosive craft beer movement. This also means that Colorado has responded accordingly and hops yards have popped up in regions all over the state. Few industries are growing as fast as Colorado’s craft beer industry, which means a great deal for tourism and local attention to Colorado-grown hops.

Whether you are a beer drinker or a wine aficionado, Colorado has a diverse climate of crafted libations.

If you are looking for Colorado local brews, there is a variety right here at home at Brick House Tavern + Tap, Hall Brewing Company, Barnett & Son Brewing Co. and Elk Mountain Brewing Inc.

For you wine lovers, Purgatory Cellars offers a unique blend of great flavors in their destination tasting room as well. Check out Colorado wines in your favorite liquor stores to find Colorado-made wines, including those from Garrett Estate Cellars. But most importantly, discover more about Colorado’s crops and exploit the bold tastes and qualities of Colorado’s unique climate.
