There were several other minor changes done to improve the look, details, and quality of the map. “This is hands down the best map we’ve done, technically, aesthetically, informationally, and beerily,” said Mike Laur of BDG2C. Many efforts have been put in to their updated map and website since the last edition’s release
over a year ago. Locals to the Pikes Peak Region will enjoy a new section with a closer look at the Colorado Springs vicinity. This is necessary with the total of Colorado Springs breweries and brew pubs reaching 21 this year. It lists a few anticipated breweries as well including Nano 108, Manitou Brewing Co, Fierro’s Nice Brews, and Lofty Brewing Company. Even longer than before, there is a lengthy list of coupons that blow the maps value out of the park. The coupon book gives you 52 reasons to buy the map this year with that many coupons from breweries, brew pubs, tap houses, homebrew shops and liquor stores.
The staff at Beer Drinker’s Guide to Colorado were really excited about some of the new coupons. There are some really great deals from breweries and liquor stores. Coupons in the Colorado Springs area include J&K Liquors, Front Range BBQ, Brewer’s Republic, Bristol, Colorado Mountain, Nano 108, Paradox, Phantom Canyon, Pikes Peak, Rocky Mountain, Smiling Toad, and Ute Pass. Don’t forget the great excuse the map gives you for beerventures across the state. Mike Laur loves the opportunity the map has given to tourists as well. Whenever he is out and someone asks for directions Mike takes out the map to show someone how to get somewhere. He’s gotten some mixed responses, but most everyone loves this useful tool. “It’s not just about good beer, it’s informational too!” Mike recently gave a copy to a couple from Poland heading to the Royal Gorge and they were ecstatic with all of the parks, 14ers, ski areas, historical bars, and beer information in addition to the listed breweries. “The more people that get out to enjoy these attractions, the better it is for everyone.” Pick up a copy, see what all Colorado has to offer, and enjoy it with a pint!
The map will be available in Salida for $15, and will be on their website
soon after. You can also grab yourself and some friends copies in most of your local breweries.
