Colorado Pint Day: A Toast to Local Craft Beer Culture

Colorado Pint Day

Celebrate Craft Beer at the Annual Colorado Pint Day

Hey there, fellow beer enthusiasts! Have you heard about the latest buzz circulating in the beer aficionado circles? It’s time to mark your calendars because the Colorado Brewers Guild has announced the much-awaited Colorado Pint Day. And before you start tapping your feet with excitement, let me pour out all the frothy details.

Colorado Pint Day: A Tradition of Hops and Happiness

Colorado Pint Day isn’t just any event; it’s a festival that captures the essence of Colorado’s vibrant craft beer culture. This annual celebration champions the local independent craft breweries sprinkled throughout the Centennial State. So, let’s toast to the art of brewing and the spirit of community that makes Colorado’s beer scene shine!

Immerse yourself in the camaraderie as breweries fling open their doors to present a treasure – the limited edition Colorado Pint Day glasses. These aren’t just your ordinary beer vessels; they’re collectible gems, with $1 from each sale flowing to the Colorado Brewers Guild, a nonprofit group dedicated to keeping the beer world hoppin’ with innovation and tradition.

The excitement bubbles up as we recall last year’s tally, where over 215 breweries joined the frolic, and fans snagged more than 29,000 glasses. That’s a lot of happy sipping! Keep your eyes peeled as the full list of participating breweries will soon be unveiled, promising another year of record-breaking cheers.

Meet the Artist Behind the Glass

What’s the canvas to an artist? A medium to weave their magic, right? Well, at Colorado Pint Day, the glasses themselves turn into canvases showcasing phenomenal designs. This year, the talented Rhyan Montgomery, a beertender at Ramblebine Brewing Company, took the spotlight by mastering the art competition hosted by the Colorado Brewers Guild.

With a mandate to evoke the thrills of “Spring Skiing and Pond Skimming,” Rhyan’s design clinched the prize, making it the third successful year of this creative jamboree. Rhyan, a Colorado native and a proud graduate of Colorado Mesa University, stirred the pot of inspiration and triumphed, turning a passion for craft beer and art into a high point of their career.
