Fermentedly Challenged's Review

I've been a user of this map for a few years now. I first came across this map at the Great American Beer Festival in 2009 when they had their 3rd Edition out. I've proudly hung this map on my wall for 3 years. Now today, I suddenly get a new one in the mail, courtesy (free) of Motion Pixel Lab, Inc. To my surprise and delight, this map has over 48 more listings including some listings for breweries that are not quite open yet. By the end of the summer, the vast majority of the listings will have been fully open. I even noticed that the map has the new address for Crabtree Brewing and that's not even open yet.

So given the fact that some of the businesses may not be open yet, please call ahead and check to make sure they are indeed open at that location given. They even had a few listings that I wasn't aware of, so thanks to them I'll be updating my listings a bit to include those.

What's really nice about the map is that it folds up into a nice portable document that you can keep in your glove box. I had previously gotten the one piece roll-up version of the map and I couldn't use it in my car. But this new one I can certainly take it with me.

One side of the map has the entire state of Colorado with all of the breweries, but the other side of the map has detailed listings, addresses, phone numbers, a close-up map of the Denver/Boulder metro area, a listing of popular beer geek beer bars and taverns, a list of all Colorado State Parks and 14'ers and a whole lot more. I was impressed on how much they could fit on one map.

Now the big thing I was excited about was indeed the Passport to Free Beer book that came with it. Wow, if I used up all of those coupons I'd be getting a lot of free beer and other discounts. More coupon books don't have so many FREE items in it as this does. The other nice thing about the coupons is that the vast majority of them are good until January 1st, 2014! That's a good year and a half to use them up. It'll take most people that long just to get around the state. Some of the coupons are for breweries that have yet to open - so when I go to their grand openings I'll get a free beer.

For the list price, this map is well worth it. It'll look good on your wall too. I've enjoyed mine for years. I'm glad to have an updated one. By this time next year, there may be as many as 40 more breweries opening in 2013. So having a map to all the breweries is going to be a must-have item.

Disclosure: Motion Pixel Lab sent me a free map in the mail unsolicited. I posted their press release out of courtesy and wrote my own review of their map.
