Rocky Mountain News chooses Dale’s Pale Ale as the top Colorado-brewed beer. The explanation:
Why it’s tops: The folks at Oskar Blues in Lyons have turned the craft-brewing world on its head by packing Daleâ€™s in cans. This rich-tasting brew loaded with European malt and American hops has become popular because it tastes great, travels well, and itâ€™s fresher tasting because itâ€™s protected from light.
New Belgium’s Fat Tire captured the People’s Choice award.
