Colorado didn’t invent beer, but we did perfect the craft. The Centennial State is arguably the king when it comes to craft beer, producing more brewskis per capita than any other state. Whether you’re drawn towards a slow pour pils after a hike, relish in heady ales or reach for velvety milk stouts on a snowy day, Colorado pours some of the most stellar microbrews available in the domestic market.
For the past 160 years this liquid gold has been woven into the fabric of Colorado culture dating back to hundreds of saloons prolific in Denver, before, during and after Prohibition and still thriving today in our booming industry of over 400 craft breweries.
“Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.”
– Benjamin Franklin

Eyes Bigger than stomachs welcome
Every good story begins around the table.
Here at Rocky Mountain Food Report, we are committed to discovering and sharing information about the growing food culture here in Colorado, and beyond. We are eager to learn about the people, pastimes and processes that make the plates we can’t put down such an integral part of our daily lives. Food is the universal language of love and we live, breath, work and play for the passion that is the hospitality industry. We strive to parlay pertinent knowledge about brilliant brands, progressive restaurants and interesting events forward to you, our intentional readership taking it all the way back to the heart of food to discuss the agricultural and animal beginnings all the way forward to the professionals who prepare, brew, build and distill these delicious creations. We value the individuals who are creating worthy livelihoods from their passion projects and showcase the hard working chefs, bartenders, farmers, ranchers, brewers, distillers, restaurateurs and sommeliers who make the arrival of these ingredients and life’s simple pleasures all possible. Food is art. Food is nourishment. Food is fun. Beyond our artistic appreciation for the beautiful presentations that have crossed our tablescapes and an unwavering admiration for the strenuous, challenging work of the entirety of the food & beverage community, we share the thread that we like to eat. No matter your age, sex, political affiliations, religion or socioeconomic status, every single one of us gets hungry. We come together to talk about cravings, the desire for a thoughtful craft community and what we should all eat next and that’s the joy of writing about gastronomic culture. At heart, this is a news forum that celebrates our hierarchy of needs where eating lives at the tippy top. Let’s learn together, taste all the things and enjoy every single bite.
