Denver, CO – October 12, 2012 - Breckenridge Brewery of Colorado recently hosted other Colorado craft brewers to jointly brew a special beer, sponsored by the Colorado Brewers Guild, created specifically for this week's Great American Beer Festival. The result: "Porter's Pride," an imperial porter brewed with 200 pounds of dark chocolate from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. “What makes this beer unique,” says Steve Kurowski, Marketing Director for the Guild, “is that it was brewed by brewers for brewers.”
In my recent trip to Ireland and a VIP tour of the Guinness Brewery, there were moments I felt like the female version of Charlie who won a golden ticket.
While there was no gluttonous German boy or Paraguayan millionaire touring with me, there was a factory that brewed top secret deliciousness, using special, local water. There was even a great glass elevator that took us up many flights only to display the gorgeous surrounding city. And yes, the tour was given by the slightly mischievous, coolheaded and abundantly generous brewer impresario – Fergal Murray.
