Friend of the show Ryan Hannigan of Focus On The Beer joins us in the studio to talk about all things beer! This week is American Craft Beer Week and we are celebrating by talking about this summer’s upcoming beer events in Colorado Springs and throughout the State. Make sure to check Pints and Plates, a collaboration between local restaurants and breweries combining food and beer which runs from May 16 – May 20. We have a full list of upcoming beer events below.
In this episode we also talk a lot about the Grocery Store Beer Bill and the two sides. The pro side, Your Choice Colorado, believes that allowing full strength beer sales in grocery stores will catalyze economic growth and jobs while Keep Colorado Local believes the bill will kill small businesses. Check them out and let us know which side you fall on.
