Colorado Breweries in the Top 50 for 2007

The Brewers Association just released their Top 50 Craft and Top 50 Overall Breweries in the USA for 2007 and several Colorado breweries made the list. Represent! Here's how my beloved Colorado breweries fared in the top 50.

In the Top 50 Craft Brewing Companies by Beer Sales Volume (Based on 2007 sales) – Colorado Breweries made up 12% of the selected companies.

#3 - New Belgium Brewing Co. Inc. - Fort Collins, CO

#29 - Flying Dog Brewery - Denver, CO

#32 - Rock Bottom Brewery Restaurants - Louisville, CO

#33 - Odell Brewing Co. - Fort Collins, CO

#42 - Breckenridge Brewery - Denver, CO

#45 - Boulder Beer Co. - Boulder, CO

And in the overall Top 50 Breweries in the US by Sales Volume in 2007, five Colorado breweries made the list:

#3 Coors - Golden, CO

#8 New Belgium, Fort Collins, CO

#42 Flying Dog, Denver, CO

#45 Rock Bottom, Louisville, CO

#48 Odell, Fort Collins, CO

It's nice to know that Colorado is well represented in the Beer industry and I just happen to work in a city where three of the big breweries do business. (Anheuser Busch also has a plant in Fort Collins.)
