Colorado beers: fifty to try before you die -- or die trying

Categories: Beer Man, Booze

Last week, GQ magazine released a bucket list of fifty beers to drink before you die. It was a decent compilation, but a little short on Colorado offerings. So we decided to come up with our own list of fifty Colorado-made beers to drink before you die.

We have tried every one of these beers (arranged alphabetically) -- or trust someone who has.

Now drink in our list -- and then start arguing about how we screwed up! Cheers. (For more beer news, follow me on Twitter at @ColoBeerMan.)
