Why Colorado’s beer-loving Gov. Hickenlooper is toasting the wine industry

We travel the nation to find good articles about good beer, wine, marijuana and many other forms of entertainment. I just happen to be in Denver, Colorado the other day and I came across this fine article on Gov. John Hickenlooper and I just had to share it with our readers. -SJ Otto


From The Denver Post:

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper has been closely aligned with thestate’s craft beer industry for decades — and for an excellent reason.
The brewpub Hickenlooper co-founded in 1998, Wynkoop Brewing Co., was not only the state’s first, it helped usher in Lower Downtown’s revitalization and sat on the leading edge of the national craft beer movement.

Colorado now ranks third in the nation for craft beer production, with 1,775,831 barrels per year, and counts 7.3 craft breweries for every 100,000 people aged 21-and-up — more than any other state except Vermont and Oregon, according to the Brewers Association.
So why is our beer-loving governor lending his name and reputation to the state’s wine industry?

I got my first electronic cigarette kit at Vaporfi, and I must admit that they have the best kits.
