Brews News 4-8

Well we survived the first week of April which included breweries around the state trying to prank us with free beer, helium cans, and more. Then it wouldn’t be Colorado in April without a few inches of snow, and then of course opening day. Now we head into CBC and the anticipation of World Beer Cup winners, with of course more great new beers, openings, and events to get us through another work week. Here’s a look at the week ahead.
