Read Alert: Mountain Brew

It’s no secret that Denver has a fantastic microbrew culture. In fact, we’re so laden with  brew pubs and good beer, it can be a bit overwhelming to track it all down.

Enter Ed Sealover’s new Mountain Brew: A Guide to Colorado’s Breweries. Sealover reviews breweries large and small, up and down the Front Range, into the mountain towns, and on the Western Slope. My husband, a true connoisseur, assures me that the book is quite extensive and that Sealover really covers his bases.

With each featured brewery, the book details the history of the pub, particular techniques used in production, and favorite beers for the venue. The beginning of the book also displays area maps and the locations of breweries so that you can tour an area and not miss the hot spots.

I’m not really a beer drinker, but I still enjoyed the fun facts like that Silverton Brewery has such a remote location that tap rooms shut down for up to six months out of the year! Sealover has created a companion for beer snobs and novices alike and captured a topic that is truly Coloradoan.
