Colorado Breweries and Mile High Water

Colorado BreweriesThere must be something nearly perfect in the natural water supplies in the state of Colorado. How can I be so confident in this? Well currently there are more Colorado breweries than anywhere else. So there must be an explanation for all of these Colorado breweries, but what is it? I don’t have an absolute answer nor is my opinion 100% fact. But I do have some answers that make some sense.





My first opinion has to do with the current laws that the state of Colorado has. For some reason, Colorado laws encourage local breweries and start up breweries. This could be because the states governor developed the first Denver brewery. He called it wynkoop brewing. It was the first brewery in the city of Denver. After developing several restaurants and his brewery, governor Hickenlooper became the governor of the state.I’m not an expert on the laws, but I do think that the current laws in the state of Colorado make it easier on breweries. Most of the time it is completely backwards, normally the state laws are against businesses that actually have a real structure or substance to them. The states make it very hard and expensive if not completely impossible to start a business that has to do with substance.

Now while there is probably a whole lot of Colorado breweries in the state because of the laws being on there side, I have to trust if they are in the state because of the fresh water as well. If you think about it, why do you believe there are a lot whiskey distillers in Tennessee? Most all of them are there because of the lakes and rivers that the state has. Something about the water sources in Tennessee makes it easy to distill whiskey.

I don’t know what it is, I just know it is due to the natural rivers and lakes. The same could be true for Colorado breweries. Beer necessitates a unending supply of h2o when being brewed. So accordingly the beer brewer would require the very best source so he can create the absolute finest beer correct? I believe so!I think so! Again, there must be something about the Colorado water that provides the greatest crafted beers.

It commonly known that the state of Colorado gets a ton of snow fall annually The snow can become extremely deep, I’m talking 10 to 20 feet tall in some places of western Colorado. That’s a lot of snow! But what transpires when the snow begins to melt? All that beautiful snow transforms into fresh and enjoyable water. This is known as the run off. The snow begins to melt and “runs” from the mountain into the surrounding lakes and rivers. These different lakes and rivers are what Colorado breweries use to make beer. It’s really clear if you think about it! There has to be something about the water, the laws are only a part of the reason.

Above, I pointed out this is just what I think and what I have just said is not based on fact. Therefore, So, However it makes so much sense to me that I personally believe that it is one of the number on reasons you can find so many Colorado breweries. Consider the possibility of global warming kept rising continually that Colorado wasn’t able to generate any snowfall from now on? Do you trust that all the Colorado breweries would be produce exceptional beer still?

Most likely all the Colorado breweries would shut the doors and move bases in other states? Colorado breweries are a business and operate like one. If the companies were not able to get the best water to make great beer they wouldn’t generate adequate profits and shut down. Therefore I think that nearly every one the Colorado breweries would move where they have the best water.
