Colorado beer of the year

Best Colorado beer: Bierstadt Lagerhaus Slow Pour Pils

For the second straight year, the crisp, clear, and delicious Slow Pour Pils from Bierstadt Lagerhaus wins Colorado beer of the year. It’s quite a feat for a brewery that opened less than two years ago, but the care and attention — 30 hours to brew this one — that brewmasters Bill Eye and Ashleigh Carter put into the beer are evident.

“Favorite beers are often those that stand out for being huge or over the top. But for me, favorite means the beer I keep going back to drink,” says Jeff Nickel at AC Golden Brewing, who counts Bierstadt’s Helles as another of his top picks.
