Best Colorado beer: Bierstadt Lagerhaus Slow Pour Pils
Denver’s Bierstadt Lagerhaus opened a mere four months ago, and its traditional German pilsner made an immediate impression in an arena where bigger and crazier are often considered better. But this is no fizzy yellow beer you can find in 30-packs, either.
“Simple, yet authentic and delicious,” said Brian O’Connell at Renegade Brewing.
Crisp and easy drinking, it takes 30 hours to brew and then ferments at cold temperatures for what seems like an eternity. Slow Pour Pils is served with a tall foamy head that extends above the rim of the glass.
