Colorado Brews

I’ve lived in Colorado for 3 months now, and seem to stumble across a new brewery every day. Which got me wondering: how many breweries call this state home, anyway? 186, according to the data curated by Brew Trail.

Explore the map below to find out where all that beer is brewed, and then go enjoy a pint near you.

The two maps show: heat radius–where are most of the breweries clustered?
Then whether or not they give tastings (lucky for us, most seem to)

One thought on “Colorado Brews

  1. Great idea for a pair of maps, although I’m not seeing points for the individual breweries, just one for the city where they’re located and a list you can click through. A map’s not that valuable if you can’t use it to find the exact locations that you’re describing. I think you could have a bit more information in your labels, like whether they have live music, what they’re hours are, and whether they sell beer to go in growlers, cans or bottles.
