Every Thursday morning for as long as I can remember, Great Divide Brewing hosts a hospitality reception at their production brewery near Coors Field for brewers, media and their distributors. It’s always a fun event with great cheeses, desserts and other tasty comestibles. I wasn’t sure I’d be able to make it this year, but my morning judging session ended with enough time to cab over to the brewery with a few other similarly minded judges.
