Fort Collins…holly crap that was fun! Thanks to the Hop Grenade for putting on an amazing event as Verboten came in to town and grabbed the trophy with their “Too Drunk to be an Astronaut” Imperial. What a complex and delicious beer. Verboten just barely beat out Snowbank Brewing with their Snow Juice Hazy IPA.
That escalated quickly! What a great night and great job to Launch Pad Brewing for winning our first regional championship at Peak to Peak with their Piggy Back Rides NE IPA. Two 22 put up a great fight in the final and we will see you both in our Championship event in 2019!
