The Summer of Beer Tour
Well, we made it. Summer is finally here. The season between spring and autumn. The months of June, July, and August. Astronomically from the June solstice to the September equinox. Summer of ’42, The Long Hot Summer, Dog Days of Summer, I Know What You Did Last Summer, Summer Camp, Summer Glau…?
However you look at it, summer means cookouts, swimming, hiking, volleyball, more baseball and BEER. We know that beer is a four season sport but some craft brews are just best suited to summer. Crisp lagers, sours, IPAs and pale ales with a touch of honey cut through the heat. There are light bodied wheat ales with a touch of fruit and/or spice for those warm laid back evenings.
Come celebrate summer with us on a WALKING BEER TOUR of the quaint mountain town of Manitou Springs, Colorado. Manitou Springs sits at the base of Pikes Peaks and is known for its mineral springs, art galleries, specialty boutiques and some great little craft beer establishments. Along the way we will sample some of the best craft beer that summer has to offer. Craft beers like Bristol’s Beehive Honey Wheat and Odell’s refreshing citrus Easy Street. We’ll also share a little bit of local history, do some storytelling and talk about the craft beer phenomenon!
“There are no strangers here, only friends you haven’t met yet.”
