I'm in Colorado, land of the brewery! Because of this, I've gotten very picky about what I consider to be a good beer. No Budweiser, Coors, or Corona
for this girl anymore!! I could name off a list of local beers in my town that are my favorite, but it really is about what is going on at that
moment that makes it memorable. For me it is always that first beer in spring when things have thawed out enough that you can go hang out on the
patio of one of the breweries and not freeze your ass off. It's always the current Loveland Aleworks sour ale, hanging out at the brewery on their
front patio with a beer, looking around at the green grass and trees starting to peek through winter's heavy hand, and breathing a sigh of relief
because warmer weather is on it's way. However, this time of year (It's already Autumn here) my favorite beer is just a block away from Aleworks at
Verboten Brewing! Their "Thinking of Something Orange - Orange Blossom Honey Wheat" feels a little bit like it's still summer! Crisp cool and
citrus'y, but surrounded by orange and yellow changing leaves all over the place! Wrapped up in a light jacket, watching the world come to a slower
pace, getting ready for winter. The grass is still green and feels like a cooler summer day, but the trees are mixed with greens, yellows, and
tans... There is just something about that mix that feels like a transition. Not summer, not Autum, but just about the best beer drinking weather.
Now to be fair if it were crap beer, I wouldn't have nearly as strong of feelings about it.
OH one other good beer, that I don't even drink anymore because to be fair, it isn't a good beer. Had to be Corona, but only the one time when I was
down in Mexico on a trip with my best friend. Sitting under a palm tree having forgotten about the rest of my life, I sat there having the best
Corona I've ever had. It's never tasted as good as it did then.
