Thirty Amazing Colorado Beers From 2014

With more than 250 breweries in Colorado, it's hard to get a good sampling of everything that is being made -- even over the course of an entire year (see my list from 2013 as well). It gets even more difficult because our state's prodigious craft-beer makers are constantly turning out new brews and serving them in cans, bottles and on draft. So although I tried hundreds of beers in 2014, this list (arranged in alphabetical order) isn't comprehensive. Rather, it covers some of my favorite new, newly packaged or sort of newish beers from the past twelve months. Cheers.
