Reader: Colorado Is Just an Overpriced Six-Pack

Can there ever be too much beer? Not on Super Bowl Sunday, when bars across Denver will be overflowing with sports fans soaking up suds. In fact, all of February is a big beer month: Not only is it pre-loaded with the beer-friendly holidays of Mardi Gras and Valentine's Day (or Anti-Valentine's Day, as the case may be), but it's also Stout Month, a 25-year-old tradition. Still, readers worry that if Denver's dining scene is overloaded, Denver's craft-beer scene is swamped. Says Christopher:
 How many restaurants does Denver need? I think it's hit a saturation point. As well as breweries.  
Adds Ed:
The whole brewery fad is getting out of hand. I look forward to the overcrowded market implosion that is destined to come soon. 
Comments Randy: 
Brewery here, dispensary there: It's almost like people can't stand living in Colorado sober. 
Says JP: 
Colorado used to be unique; now it’s just an overpriced six-pack.
 Concludes René: 
Enough!! I love breweries, but there so many already.
