Here at Elevation Outdoors Magazine, we’re gearing up for the launch of our annual best of booze poll which returns on February 20. To celebrate the beginning of a new year, and a new search for Colorado’s best booze, we paid a visit to the place where it all ended last year: the City Star Brewery taproom. Through six rounds of voting March-Madness style, this celebrated Berthoud gem was voted the champion with their easy-drinking and oh-so-smooth Bandit Brown Ale. This year, we’re on a quest to determine the top booze-maker in the state. Colorado’s top craft breweries, wineries, distilleries, and ciders will be going head-to-head through six rounds of voting, but only one will be crowned the ultimate libation.
