After a long drive from Boulder to Colorado Springs, the first stop was one that was going to quench my thirst…with beer of course. We met Russel Shaw of Springs Beer Tours at Creekside Cuisine to begin a 2-hour walking tour of the quaint mountain town of Manitou Springs (6 miles west of Colorado springs). Russel is a retired Service Disabled Veteran who served in the U.S. Air Force for over 23 years. He has been a resident of Colorado Springs since his retirement and has a strong knowledge and passion for craft beer and history.
Would love to go again!
Great Beer Tour!
Our host, Russ Shaw, made the event extremely interesting. At each of the three places we visited, Russ knew the proprietor and it was obvious they had a good rapport. His ghost stories about the places we visited as well as some we didn’t were entertaining.
You get a beautiful walking tour!
We got to do a beer tour with Russ shortly after the holiday season. It was fun, learning about the history of Manitou Springs, and of course great beer. The tour starts early enough that every venue was pretty empty and we didn’t have to yell. On top of that, you get a beautiful walking tour of some of the best parts of the city.
