Beers I drank in Colorado

I'm 
We recently returned from Colorado visiting family in Winter Park and Dillon.  I love beer even though many folks think I just stick with vodka.  Something I don't drink much of:  wine, except at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Fortunately (or unfortunately) I can drink my way through any vacation.  When John and I went to Europe on our honeymoon, we drank 1664 in Paris, Budvar and Pilsener Urquell in Prague and Spaten and Hofbrau in Munich.  When we went to German Alps (Garmisch-Partenkirchen) for John's work, I drank as many awesome Bavarian (and Tyrol) beers as I could:  Franzikaner, Stigl, Paulaner, Hacker Pschorr, Lowenbrau, Augustiner.

I make it a point to drink around any state I am visiting.  Love the New Glarus Spotted Cow in Wisconsin and Summit in Twin Cities.

Here's my wrap up of my favorite Colorado beers.  I don't know how the beer snobs view this stuff.  I just liked these beers especially at hight altitudes.

Avery, Ellie's Brown Ale

Oskar Blues, Mamma's Little Yella Pils

Pug Ryan, Deadeye Dunkel 

Now that we're out of the mountains, I plan to head to the Missouri mountains of BUSCH, my official youth sport watching beer.

**I tried to get all these spellings correct, but my apologies if I did not.

Andes Mint Mansard

Thanks to my friend JPW for sending this.  Kind of looks like an Andes mint with the pistachio and brown color combination.

Steamboat springs, co

One would not think the mansard style would lend itself very well to the snow of a Colorado winter but nonetheless here are pod of mansards Steamboat Springs.

The other pictures are of the kids at Fish Creek Falls and Strawberry Park Hot Springs

Moberly Missouri mansards. 

Funny story. When I was pregnant with child number two I had a trial in Moberly. And threw up the entire time. This was probably the first time I have been back in Moberly since that trial almost 13 years ago

Columbia high school

Of course we have a soccer game in Illinois. Here's a mansard that is the high school entrance. 

Thank goodness this field is circled by a track so I can "walk and watch" the game.
