|The People Behind the Map Left to Right: Rick Mazzola, Carol White, and Mike Laur reading the newest Beer Drinker’s Guide to Colorado|
“Bigger, Better, & Beerier Than Ever!” The folks at Beer Drinkers Guide to Colorado (BDG2C) are releasing their Updated 7th Edition tomorrow at Brewers Rendezvous in Salida, CO. I stopped in their office to check out the changes and had the chance to chat with the folks behind the map in order to give you a bit of a sneak peak!
The biggest difference is the number of breweries. There are 59 new breweries listed this year bringing the total to 224. Carol White of BDG2C does all of the research for new breweries. “The industry is exploding!” Carol said. “There are more and more breweries all the time. As soon as an edition is published, I start looking for new breweries for the next one.” The very last thing they do is the painstaking placement of all the pint glasses on the map. Rick Mazzola said that if a new brewery opens that starts at the beginning of the alphabet, every other number has to be changed.
