Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
Valentine’s Day is all about the love of great craft beer and……wait……what, it’s not? Oh…ok.
Well, Valentine’s Day IS all about “Love” and what better way to say “I Love You” than with a walking beer tour? Ok…there may be better ways but hey, this is pretty good! Especially with the great craft beer that we will be sampling on our tour.
Come take a Walking Beer Tour with us through the quaint mountain town of Manitou Springs, Colorado and bring the one you love…or just a good friend…or several good friends…or maybe your Mom.
Manitou Springs sits at the base of Pikes Peaks (14,115 ft. at the top) and is known for its mineral springs, art galleries, specialty boutiques, and some great little craft beer establishments. Along the way we’ll sample some of the finest Colorado craft beers, share a little bit of local history, and talk about the craft beer phenomenon!
This version of our “Original 1872” walking beer tour features some really unique Beers. One of those beers will be Denver Beer Co’s Princess Yum Yum. Denver Beer Co. takes a traditional Kolsch and ferments it with real raspberries. The result is a ruby red fruity summer ale that finishes tart and dry and perfectly thirst quenching. Winter is still here so, we will still be sampling some great Winter Beers. Winter Beers are typically a little stronger, richer and full bodied and our “For The Love of Beer Tour” promises some great winter inspired beers! (Featured beers are subject to availability and may change without notice.)
