Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

The Fourth of July isn't just about fireworks and freedom — there's also beer and barbecue! Just in time for this holiday weekend, Colorado's craft brewers have released an unprecedented number of brand-new canned and bottled beers. Jonathan Shikes recently served up a guide to 25 of these new brews — but not every beer drinker is a fan. Says Michael: 

Nearly every release here has some terrible flavoring added. Does anyone make beer anymore?  

What do you think of all the new summer brews? What's your favorite Colorado craft beer?

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
