The New York Times Summarizes the Success of Craft Brewers in Colorado

The New York Times took some time on Friday to cover the booming craft beer scene in Denver, CO.

The piece, which featured Wit’s End Brewing, Strange Brewing Company and Denver Brewing Company, pointed to Colorado’s alcohol laws as a big reason why the craft beer business is flourishing in Denver and across the entire state.

The article suggests that because supermarket chains are only allowed to sell low alcohol beer, craft brewers and independent liquor stores are able to thrive.

The Brewers Association, a trade group representing craft brewers, reported that Colorado produced the third most barrels of beer in 2010, behind California and Pennsylvania. 2011 numbers are not yet available.
