What is this?

This is not a definitive list of every brewery in the state of Colorado. It's also not a list of every bar in which you can get a beer. Instead, it's the result of our best efforts to cultivate a list of locations where you can enjoy a fresh beer (or mead) where that beer (or mead) was born. As the sign at Twisted Pine says "Why worry about a born on date when you can be in the delivery room?"

 Want to know more?

That's reasonable. Chances are you're wondering if the brewers on this list are any good. You're concerned that they might not make the sorts of beers you like.

Instead of trying to answer these questions (badly), we're going to suggest you try these other sites that focus on brewing in Colorado.
