What a busy week for American Craft Beer Week. Colorado and the nation released a lot of new beers just for this week. While this list isn't complete by any means, it does represents a big chunk of the 230+ breweries here in Colorado. Spring has sprung and it's time for lighter, more refreshing seasonal beers to emerge. Spring and Summer seasonals are now being released - seek one out at a craft brewery near you. Please note that some of these releases are firkins or specialty kegs and may already be gone.
