The 427 Blog Visitation Rules

So just to clarify a few self-imposed rules of the 427 Blog, the 427 will include mostly independent microbreweries, as defined by Brewers Association, as well as some nationally owned beers, like Blue Moon and Breckenridge Brewery.

The 427 Blog agrees that people mostly prefer local, independent breweries, but there are also a lot of thirsty people in the state who, at one time or another, simply want any tasty brew … such as at a baseball game. The 427 Blog believes that the nationally owned beers tend to work hard on barrel-to-mouth (end-to-end) quality control; they have to.

Note that, despite current ownership, Breckenridge Brewery and Coors (Blue Moon, etc.) are certainly a big part of Colorado’s rich beer history and, therefore, are rightfully included in the Colorado Craft Beer Hall of Fame Directory.

In addition, chain brewpubs like C.B. Potts pose another issue related to completing tasting visits to all 427 breweries. I decided to include them in the 427 if they are convenient to my travels.

As new micros open and close, I’ll do my best to add to the 427 Blog.  Magna Dolor!!
