Beer Buzz: Out-of-Towners


Living in Colorado, we have access to the state’s assortment of killer beer year-round. But when more than 600 breweries from across the country descend on the Colorado Convention Center with thousands of different beers in tow for the Great American Beer Festival, it’s as good of an excuse as any to try something new. To help get you started, we picked a six-pack of our favorite Colorado brews and suggested an out-of-town beer you might consider instead. Cheers.
