Ok, contest time. I have multiple trips to post, but need help in which one to post next. So....I will be granting wishes. Like in most wishing scenerios, I will grant three wishes, one each to the first three people who respond. Tell me which park you want to see next, the first person to respond will get their wish and so on and so forth, please, duplicate requests while humbling, shouldn't be made.
Here is the list to choose from:
Jersey Shore Whore - ~14 parks (note: some of the parks I have very few pictures of) Kiddieland whoring - Pittsburg, KS Heritage Square Amusement Park - Golden, Co Alpine Sleds @ Heritage Square - Golden, Co Lakeside Amusement Park - Denver, Co Milehigh Flea Market - Denver, Co Elitch Gardens - Denver, Co Santa's Workshop - North Pole Coors Brew Tour - Golden, Co
As promised, your wish is my command. Beer. An American staple and a favorite among many a C-TPR member is produced by many and perfected by few. Coors believes they have it perfected and are willing to give you three on the house to prove it, that is, if you take their FREE Brewery Tour! Yes, I said it, FREE Beer, and oh yeah, a tour to go with it.
When you get to the Brewery, you park in a lot at 14th and Ford where you board a shuttle bus. The shuttle bus takes you on a brief tour of downtown Golden, Co. where they give you bits and pieces of history on how the brewery was started.
Hours and telephone information.
Once you enter the tour lobby they provide you with an audio tour device and wristband used for FREE Beer! Behind the lobby counter is a history exhibit.
Next, you make your way to the elevators which take you to the observation level of the brewery. Displayed on the wall are all of the beers they currently produce.
Next stop, the ingredients. I have never touched barley before, I was surprised by it's light feathery texture.
Once you've learned about the ingredients used to make beer, you head down a hallway to the Brewery.
Stuff germinates over here.
They claim this is the largest copper kettle cookery in the world. Any one of the kettles can hold 20k plus cases of beer at one time.
To go along with your audio tour are interactive displays.
The left over grains are made into cattle feed. The spent yeast is sent to Purina to make cat food.
Control Room. The guys in here know their beer.
They also said they are the only large producer of beer that uses cold filtering.
Wouldn't you like to have this job?
They perform over 1 million tests a year...
Yes!!!! Halfway thru the tour your entered a "cold" room where you got about a four ounce sample of either Coors Light or Coors Banquet.
You could sit on "ice cubes" and enjoy your beer or sample their special filtered mountain water.
Another option is to go to the packaging room.
Today they were packaging Coors Banquet and Keystone.
Packing the beer.
Fixing the packaging.
Fixing the packaging machine. I'd imagine this is something you wouldn't want down long.
Once you've taken it all in, it's time for a quiz.
Or, you can skip the quiz and come down here....
Where you can sample three glasses of beer!
I took a liking to Batch 19 which should go national soon.
Once you finish there, you can go and buy crap.
No, Thank You!
Ditto. So that's it, the tour will take you about 90 minutes, 30 minutes for the tour, an hour to sit back and drink. Hope you enjoyed!
1 wish has been granted, 1 is in queue, which will be the final wish? First one to tell me which of the following they want to see next will have their wish granted!
Jersey Shore Whore - ~14 parks (note: some of the parks I have very few pictures of) Kiddieland whoring - Pittsburg, KS Heritage Square Amusement Park - Golden, Co Alpine Sleds @ Heritage Square - Golden, Co Milehigh Flea Market (yes, they have a credit)- Denver, Co Elitch Gardens - Denver, Co Santa's Workshop - North Pole
