About- Laura Graham
You know that guy from college that was, like, a champion beer drinker? You know, the guy who, no matter how you trained, prepared, or strategized, could single-handedly win Beer Olympics on his own – who you watched in awe as he made his way through a case of Natty completely unfazed? Well, for me, this guy is my friend Andy Hille. And from the moment I met him, I knew he had to be destined for beer greatness.
This week, folks from across the country will flock to Denver, Colorado for the Great American Beer Festival. While here, they’ll partake in one of the greatest events our city hosts, undoubtedly stumbling upon beautiful architecture, delicious food, and incredible people during their stay.
Fall in Colorado is host to indescribable mountain beauty, and what a shame it is that GABF visitors might only catch a glimpse of the changing Aspen trees from an airplane flying in. If you can’t make it to the great outdoors this week, bring the great outdoors to you at the Beers Made By Walking Festival October 3rd at Wynkoop Brewing Company.
Post-Memorial Day my taste buds begin to boycott woody, smoky porters better suited for cold, cloudy days of yore and turn to crisp, refreshing flavors that pair nicely with patios and sunburns. I’m from an Irish/Scottish family (see: sunburns) whose fridges and cellars were always stocked with a variety of ciders. Countless times growing up, I sat with my family while they told stories and sang songs – stealing sips of their ciders, trying not to get caught.
