Cheers to Beers


Premiered 9/27/18

The history of Colorado may best be seen through the bottom of a beer mug. From quenching the thirst of Gold Rush miners in the 1800s to modern craft brews pouring $3 billion into Colorado’s economy, beer has either borne witness to or helped create some of the most interesting chapters in the state’s history. From stowaway Adolph Coors to craft brew revolutionist Charlie Papazian, meet the pioneers of this now booming industry. Cheers!
