A bit out of the ordinary inquiry possibly – I’m ‘on the wagon’ so to speak. I had to give up my beloved beer. I got up to 270lbs at 5’6” and it was about to do me in. I am the first registered Oklahoma Beeradvocate though and I really enjoy the atmosphere still. I suppose it became something of a hobby for me and I dedicated so much time and money into it that I hate to abandon it altogether. So, I’m planning a potential trip to Colorado this summer and I’m interested in opinions beyond the usual very useful ratings in the directories here, etc. My proposed trip is taking me through Gunnison, Paonia, Aspen, Denver, and possibly Colorado Springs. I might check out Boulder while I’m touring. It’s mostly geared toward camping and exploring the scenic views, but if there is something not to miss I might make a detour. I suppose I’m looking for places that might have unique/good food and/or a killer atmosphere. I know Colorado takes beer pretty seriously – so, I might imagine there are several options like this? I hope so. I want to rock my old school Beeradvocate t-shirt in Colorado while I’m there and hit a notable establishment and possibly pick up a souvenir t-shirt beyond the usual Harley t-shirts while touring.
