Suds on the Sabbath

Wow, I just returned from back-to-back trips to Italy and Iowa, and it seems like there's tons to talk about in Colorado beer. Let's start with the thing I'm most excited about.

Bristol Brewing is now open on Sunday.

For those of you unaware of it, Colorado Springs' finest brewery got with the spirit of the new Sunday sales law and opened its doors on the sabbath for the first time on Sept. 14. Reports out of the Springs are that it's a big hit. The brewery plans to operate from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on that day, though a recent newsletter noted that they could open or close earlier depending on the all-important timing of Broncos games.

Does anyone know of any other breweries that are just getting around to Sunday openings?

Labels: ,

Sadly, the breweries in Fort Collins and Greeley (Odell, New Belgium and Fort Collins Brewery, Crabtree) still don't have Sunday hours. I've heard that Fort Collins Brewery is going to move and build a new facility and restaurant and be open 7 days a week, but that won't be for a while. Maybe by end of next year at best. Odell will be expanding also next year, but no word on Sundays either.
