Colorado is without a doubt the capital of craft brewing in the United States with over 160 breweries in the state, and next week The Beer Diaries will be bringing its Colorado Series of episodes to town.
With what has already proven to be a main attraction for folks lucky enough to be near the screenings, The Beer Diaries will be presenting the world premiere of 12 all-new episodes that focus on Colorado's legendary craft brewing scene.
For those looking to purchase tickets, you will have four events you can attend. With two screenings showing on back-to-back nights, the Alamo Drafthouse will be housing the gatherings. The showings will take place on Monday and Tuesday night, Oct. 7th and 8th, respectively.
Both nights' shows will begin at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. MST. If you are unfamiliar with the Alamo Drafthouse, you can find it at 7301 S. Santa Fe Dr. Unit #850, Littleton, CO, 80120.
There will be a total of 10 breweries that are featured and they include: New Belgium Brewing, Odell Brewery, Avery Brewing, Great Divide Brewing, Oskar Blues Brewery, Boulder Beer, Upslope Brewing, Funkwerks, Wit's End and Trve Brewing.
New Belgium Brewing CEO and owner, Kim Jordan, recently spoke with us about why they chose Asheville, NC as their second home brewing location.
"When we looked at the east coast, we enlisted the help of a company that would help us with location services. We could look at demographics, water quality, types of labor, tax rates and all other kinds of different information.
"We wanted a state that was continuous to the ocean. We decided Maine was logistically too far away. New York was too expensive. We narrowed it down and visited with city leaders, we needed people to understand the type of brewery we wanted to build.
"It’s a long and expensive process. Asheville was chosen because we found a great location, and the people of the town were very warm and enthusiastic about New Belgium’s business practices," Jordan said.
