It’s Colorado Craft Beer Week! To celebrate the history of our great state’s craft beer industry, we’re giving away a copy of the Colorado’s Top Brewers book. Answer the Colorado beer trivia questions below to be eligible to win— you don’t have to get the questions correct, you just have to participate!

Entries will be accepted until 12pm on Friday, March 27. The winner can pick up his or her new book at North Dock (2801 Tower Road, Aurora, CO 80011) on Friday evening between 4pm and 7pm during the Colorado Beer Book Showcase, or email to make other arrangements for pick up.

Part coffee table-book, part story book, and part cookbook, Colorado’s Top Brewers profiles 26 of the state’s influential craft breweries, with recipes from Colorado chefs to pair with a beer from each one. The book also features 10 of the state’s most beer-centric pubs and restaurants. Meet the author at
