Fort Collins/Loveland Co area only has about 30 craft breweries.  What if there are 31 days in a month?  Heck, I'll have to go to one twice in the same month. 

Man, that sucks...

I remember when Miller Lite came out. Most laughed at it and it's watered down taste, me included.

Less calories and less filling slowly grew a fan base.

Today I  do make some heavier beers, but generally drink Bud Light which helps me stick around for the final buzzer.

I was at a beer festival Saturday that was comprised of only Colorado Breweries and left realizing how spoiled we beer drinkers are out here. Off hand there are a few that I love: Upslope, O'dells, Pug Ryan's, Broken Compass, Boulder Beer Company, and probably a couple more. Upslope Lager is tough to beat and I think they have a decent distribution network.

I tried quite a few Kolsch style beers which is sort of like a lager but with more citrus notes. Great for summer. 

The only beer that I truly miss from up north is Premium Grainbelt as it is not distributed out here and to me is an amazing "crappy" beer. 

 

Any chance you were in Snowmass?  I was also enjoying 30+ beers from just Colorado breweries on Saturday.

Nothing wrong with Blue Moon I recently bought a six pack of aluminum pints & really enjoyed it

I can no longer drink like I once could so I like to try good beer - JL Beers has a Blueberry flavored beer in bottles 9% alcohol that I like but I also always have Bud Light Lime 

 

You admit you like Bud Light Lime? Oh my ;)

I was at the Lake Dillon Brew Fest in Dillon. It had a larger showing than I was expecting. I love summer up in the mountains!

My friends from the Munich area like Augustiner.  Ayinger makes good beer too.  My favorite is the Andechs Weissbier

Yes, Augustiner seems to be the favorite of the locals.  Ayinger's doppelbock (Celebrator) is my favorite beer of all time.

I'll take a Weihenstephan Dunkel every day of the week.  And throw in a Vitus to change it up on those really warm days.

Bud light lime is a beer that is very thirst quenching beer with a flavor that appeals to me

Is it a great beer ? I think it's very drinkable & better than most light beers & available most everywhere  ( not the Ralph ) to which I wish it was - Blue Moon is so I'm happy about that

I think it's time to sell Bud Products at the Ralph too - Let the best brands win

How about bringing back DAKOTA BEER!

Dakota Malting and Brewing Company was a ND brewery that operated from 1961-1965.

Can not confirm; however, such an alignment would not surprise me.
It's all about who has the best connections and lobbyists to get the laws written in their favor. In this case: the distributors.

There was a law in MN that prohibited breweries from selling their own beer in their Brewery. That was fought by Surly, and is often referred to as the Surly law as the law has now changed. That's a big reason for seeing a lot more microbrews popping up in MN.

Grainbelt makes a Blueberry beer that is ridiculous. It is just Premium with blueberries, but it will change your life.

I need to know more.  Where can I find this concoction?  I have not seen it anywhere down by Vermillion.  Here it is Premium and Nordeast, not even Premium Light.  I'll be heading to the Cities in early August though.

You think that's good. Try to find Wasatch Blueberry Hefeweizen. I am not a huge fan of sweet beers but this seems to strike the right tone and is not to sweet but just about right.
