Manitou Springs Heritage Fest Recap


Yesterday, we were fortunate to be among the judges at the Manitou Springs Heritage Beer Festival. In its second year of existence, the Heritage Brew Festival is really becoming a great little festival! A huge thanks goes out to the crew who works tirelessly to put on the festival, from set up to tear down and in between. We had a great time, and we hope everyone else who joined did as well!

While we roamed around judging, I tried to get photos of every beer we tried...I almost made it. In the end, the judges all settled on Paradox winning the award...their stuff is getting so damn good.
