Solid list. Excited to try some of your top hitters, and the fact that there's no Oskar Blues (nothing personal against them, sure it's a great company, love the canned concept etc. but the beers are just not good to me, especially the Dale's Pale) shows me that you thought outside the normal Colorado box.
