    I'm going to be in Colorado in late February to do some snowboarding and I've already amassed a "small" wish list from friends. I'll be in the Breckenridge area and I'm looking to get some gangsta brews that you guys are hiding up there in the mountains. Where should I be looking to go or if anyone is interested maybe a little bottle swap. Any advice or pointers on where to go will be greatly appreciated. Cheers

    I've found some gems at City Liquors in Breck. One of my favorite pubs is also in Breck but I can't recall the name. They have excellent happy hour pricing on craft pints and some great games, they're off the main street in a basement.

    My buddy is the beer buyer at City Liquors. His name is Burton. He will give you some great beer suggestions.

    a Gangsta brew is that really good really hard to find beer. Not like super rare but the hard to find one release a year kinda stuff. Pretty much we just add adjectives and what not to gangsta to increase how gangsta a brew is lol. Use it a lot amongst my friends a lot and it's thrown around a bit in Chicago. Long story short you're hard to find stuff.
