Beer Man

Lone Tree Brewing turns one; firkins and Christmas beers abound in our weekly calendar

In November, shortly after Colorado voters approved Amendment 64, thus creatiing the possibility of limited retail sales of marijuana in the state, we provided a list of Five Colorado pot-themed beers to pair with Amendment 64. Well, you can make that a six-pack. As Oskar Blues has reminded us with this Facebook Christmas card, the brewery has long printed a small circle on its cans that most people say is the spot where you can carve a hole to reuse that can as a handy pipe. Cheers.
