When Denver Beer Co opened its Canworks
production brewery and packaging facility last August, it also cranked up a contest in which participants could buy the newly canned beers, grab printed GPS coordinates off of the cans, figure out the 24 different secret locations and then visit them and take a picture. One person who visited all of them first would win free beer for a year at Denver Beer Co. And the winner of the DBC Explorer Challenge: Cory Palm, whose name was drawn for a hat with the eleven people who successfully completed the challenge. Some of the spots included: Confluence Park, Deer Creek Canyon, Lookout Mountain, the summits of Mount Elbert, Evans, and Bierstadt, Clear Creek Canyon, St. Mary's Glacier, Shelf Road, and a secret hot spring in the Colorado River. Denver Beer Co will bring the challenge back with new place in 2015.
