Big Brew Vacation - Colorado August 2012 (day one)

The boys at our first official beer destination - Strange Brewing Co.
They had a very small operation, but the quality was impressive.

This place was way too hard to find, but a diamond in the rough, i guess
From there, we went further into downtown Denver, to the Falling Rock Taphouse.
We had Dogfish Head 90 min IPA and Russian River's Saison*
The Wynkoop Brewery was down the street,
so we stopped in for a sampler that included a spicy jalapeno wheat*
This place was nice, but it was our first night there,
and since we were looking forward to some favorites the next few days,
we laid low that night. 
There was a giant bronze gorilla too.

*Not sure if these are correct, its a little blurry.
Hope to add more pics to this day, just need to find more time.

perennial artisan ales + schlafly hop in the city

Our first visit to Perennial, delicious beer and great people.
Arm-wrestling match over who has to beer bong a Hommel.
We all had to.

This is during their soft-opening phase.

We took notes.

Found a the last barrel to rest our tasting glasses on.

And delicious pretzels for Nicole.
