A to Z Denver Breweries Round 2

I made it through round 2 of my A to Z Denver Breweries Project. Hooray for me!

Well... Back in February of 2015, I was embarrassed by the huge number of Denver Breweries that I had never visited.

It struck me that if I went down the list, the starting letters of the brewery names represented almost every letter of the alphabet. That was when I started my A to Z Denver Breweries Project on this blog.

In some cases, I couldn't find breweries that started with whatever letter I was on, so I took some artistic license, but every letter was represented. Twice.

Round 1 started in March of 2015 and ended in January of 2019. That's almost 4 years. 0.55 breweries per month.

I made it through Round 2 much quicker. It started in February of 2019 and ended earlier this month with Z is for Zuni Street Brewing Company (again). Less than two years. 1.32 breweries per month.

 And ... this was even with the T is for ... Time Out (covid shutdown) break we had to take. 

I think the main reason I made it through quicker is that the SheppyBrew Beer Model participated more in round 2 and this helped push it along. 

If you're interested ... you can see the Round 1 summary at A to Z Denver Breweries, here is what I did for round 2:

And ... there are still a significant number of Denver Area Breweries that I have not visited. So, I am going to start round 3. 

I think I even know what breweries I want to visit for A, B, and C already.

As I come across letters that don't have breweries, I'll figure out what to do. Stay tuned and find out how I handle those.

If you want to suggest breweries for any particular letter, leave a comment on this post. 

For the record, I use the Colorado Brewery List to figure out what brewery to visit.

Before I finish up this post, I want to mention a couple of breweries that have closed recently. Covid restrictions were not kind to these breweries, and they just couldn't stay open. Let's have a moment of silence for:
