Beer Tasting At Kannah Creek Brewing Grand Junction Colorado

Kannah Creek Brewing

Why have one location when you can have three? Kannah Creek Brewing does just that with its three locations. Recently opened Kannah West is located in Fruita Colorado, and “The Edge” and “The Creek” are both located in Grand Junction Colorado. At the time of my visit to Grand Junction, The Edge and The Creek were my choices. Typically there would be no need to choose between two different locations. They both offer the same beer and both have food. But it is the food that sets them apart. The Edge food menu features burgers while The Creek features pizza. So what’s a girl to do? Is it pizza and beer or is it burgers and beer? Well, I may surprise you as I am usually a burger and beer kind of girl, but on this day I went with pizza. Which meant that I visited The Creek location.

Beer Tasting at Horsefly Brewing Montrose Colorado

Typically I am a fan of walking into a brewery and having it packed full of people. It is usually a sign that they have good beer. On a Wednesday night in April I wasn’t overly thrilled when I walked into a full house at Horsefly Brewing because the only seating left was outside. YIKES! Colorado in April. Yeah, it wasn’t warm. But there was beer to be had, so I braved the elements for you because it’s the least I could do. I’m nice like that.

Beer Tasting at Two Rascals Brewing Montrose Colorado

Located in a historic brick building complete with a ghost sign of J.F Warren Storage is Two Rascals Brewing in Montrose Colorado. Once I stepped inside I looked for a place to sit.  There I was greeted by two helpful guys at the bar, telling me I could sit anywhere, except there and pointed at a random table and chuckled. I gave them an eyebrow raise and a slight smile, letting them know I found them only slightly funny. I contemplated just dropping my purse on the table they had pointed at and plopping myself down. Really what were they going to do?

When I arrived to Del Norte Colorado I was alerted to the fact that at any given moment Colorado would remind me of just how unpredictable she was. My day had started off sunny and warm, so I dressed accordingly, shorts and a short sleeve shirt. A logical pairing on a warm day. But then later that same day I sat looking out the window of Three Barrel Brewing to sideways blowing snow. Yes, Colorado you’ve proven your point. I should have never dared to wear shorts in April, regardless of how the day started out.

Beer Tasting at San Luis Valley Brewing Alamosa Colorado

It always perplexes me when I am at a micro brewery and I see someone order a macro brew from one of the big three. And the dude didn’t just do it once, but three times he ordered a Coors Light. I thought about asking him if there was something wrong with him, but I kept my questions to myself. Mostly because it meant more handcrafted beer for me and clearly there was something wrong with him. Who orders watered down crap beer anyways?

I avoided a heart attack at Main Street Brewery Cortez Colorado

I was excited to visit Colorado. Mostly because it would be a new state for both Boomer and I, but also because of the beer. Colorado is one of the top beer producing states in the United States coming in at 3rd behind Pennsylvania (1st) and California (2nd). Idaho, my home state, comes in 35th.

Something to work on Idaho.

Fiery Hot Pizza at Dolores River Brewing, Dolores Colorado

Snaggletooth IPA at Dolores River Brewing

Sometimes I drive out of my way to visit places while traveling. Dolores River Brewing was no exception. I was spending the night in Cortez Colorado but there was a brewery located in a small town about 11 miles away. And since I was in Colorado, a state well-known for good beer, I decided to make the trek over to Dolores to try out Dolores River Brewing.
