Which brings us to the point of this post, PorchDrinking.com will be attending our first Rocky Mountain Cigar Festival this August in Broomfield, Colorado! We will be covering the RMCF and all of the craft breweries (see below) in attendance! Get ready for a day like no other- Fine cigars from manufacturers such as Camacho, Nat Sherman and Rocky Patel, microbrews, local spirits, hot cars, live music, & all the finer things in life. No matter what you choose once inside you’re in paradise.
We are a bit biased but we believe that one of the best things to pair with a cigar is craft beer. Sure, scotch is already smoky and lends itself well to matching a cigar. (In fact, I love a big bourbon paired with a spicy stick on a fall evening). But craft beer, craft beer stretches and melds and attenuates flavors from the cigar in a way that we just have to brag on. A cigar can coax out the nutty, chocolate tones of an imperial stout while a light smoke can also bring out bitterness in an IPA. It just makes sense. And it appears that these craft breweries agree as they will be in attendance for the event.
Craft breweries in attendance: Asher Brewing Company, AC Golden Brewing Company, Boulder Beer, Breckenridge Brewery, Echo Brewing Company, FATE Brewing Company, Oskar Blues Brewery, Samuel Adams, and Walnut Brewery.
And if craft beer is not your thing, it appears that there are plenty of other libations to tide you over.
Knowing what we do and wanting to learn from some of the best blenders and tobacco owners around, we asked the RMCF if we could be in attendance to provide some event coverage and spread some of our knowledge on all things craft beer. If you love craft beer as much as we do, and you are a cigar fan – be it a rookie looking to learn or a professional looking to capitalize on the great event – you should definitely try to make it out to this year’s Rocky Mountain Cigar Festival. If you seeing us puffing a bone, stop and say hi and let’s enjoy the grey cloud together!
