Default Greetings from Denver

View from our hotel room

Tour of the Coors plant, you get a wrist band that allows you to get 3 free samples. I thought it would be swallow size samples, nope, full beer glass samples.



this was taken at an elevation of 7,500 feet at the top of Lookout Road. Where Buffalo Bill is buried.


Not pictured is the odometer at 262626 miles. Traveled 1000 miles to Denver on Friday, and the same back today.

Some interesting trivia I learned also,

Employees are allow 2 free beers after their shift. There is Coors and Coors LIght on tap in the employee cafeteria.

They are allowed to purchase up to 9 cases of product per month using employee discount. (the guide didn't say how much the discount was, but I bet it'* steep)
