Four letters spell a great reason why Colorado is the best place to enjoy some apres-ski action. BEER. That’s right. Colorado is not only famous for its snowy slopes, but also for its delicious beer. There’s a lot of it, and people literally come from all over the country to try it.

Here’s some more info from Colorado’s website:

“If you like beer, you’ll love Colorado. Colorado has more breweries per capita than any other state in the U.S. And, we’ve been brewing beer since the 1800s. In addition to major breweries, Colorado also has one of the largest concentrations of microbreweries (producing specialty beers in smaller quantities) in the nation, with more than 100 located throughout the state. Most of the breweries offer tours of their facilities as well as beer tastings. The Great American Beer Festival, the largest domestic beer festival in the United States is held each year in Denver.
