Distilleries are popping up all over Colorado, to help quench the thirst of drinkers crowding craft cocktail bars. But smaller distillers can face a challenge as they try to get their products into the hands of the bartenders who live, breathe, mix and drink booze every day. Now a new program called Angelshare will connect six distilleries with six bars and restaurants, as the pairings create cocktail menus that introduce consumers to the wonders of Colorado booze.

earlier this week, some of the state's finest makers and shakers sampled each other's wares.
