Surviving the holidays with beer

What’s worse than hearing ‘Feliz Navidad’ for the hundredth time during the holidays? How about hearing ‘Feliz Navidad’ for the hundredth time while cooped up with your – or worse, your significant other’s – family? Unless you want to be blacklisted from your family forever, you’re stuck with them this time of year, but we have developed a fool-proof coping mechanism for surviving the holidays with your relatives – alcohol.
Instead of taking out-of-towners to the museum or Red Rocks, why not take them to that symbol of Colorado craftsmanship and entrepreneurial spirit – the brewery? Show off some of the best beer in the country, all while getting a buzz on. It makes your aunt’s proselytizing and dad’s corny jokes a whole lot more tolerable, plus it keeps them entertained.
Make brewery tours a new family Christmas tradition with these holly jolly drunken distractions.
