We all know these are awful times for a lot of people. Sick & dying alone. Many are losing their livelihoods. Oh, and what about the wildfires that scorched record amounts of our beautiful Colorado? That and the resultant bad air makes you sick.
But I'm proud of all the people in Colorado who are coping, creating and continuing. Brewers, restaurants and travel have been devastated. But the Spirit of Colorado lives on as evidenced by the Colorado Brewers Guild. In pursuit of Beer Excellence by its members, the Colorado Craft Brewers Guild held it's annual Summit virtually, as all organizations now must do. Thank you.
They could have just canceled the CBG Summit and blamed COVID but they persevered. Here's a toast to all the Proud People of Colorado who persevere: the Firemen AND Firewomen, Doctors, Nurses, the Teachers, the Accountants, Lawyers, Students, Pilots, Bartenders, Service Workers, Government Administrators (at least most of them), Good Cops, the athletes (high school, college especially) and the Brewers as well as all the blessed children of Colorado.
Next time you can, buy them a great Colorado Craft Beer.....except for the blessed children (under 21).
