Sharing is caring

Or is it? Boulder’s happy hour scene shuns shareable cocktail trend

By Noel Phillips
For better or worse, we live in a culture of sharing. We share our photos, our statuses, our relationship highs and lows, favorite recipes, workouts, selfies, DIY projects and even our meals. The rise of the Internet tapped into our innately social mindset, lit a fuse under it and exploded it across our screens for all to see.

Craft Sabbath

No place is celebrating the convergence of beer and extreme metal more than Colorado.

By Christopher Krouatin

Drinking pink

Summer is time for ros

By Megan Bucholz
As a kid, I was aware that a pink wine called white zinfandel existed, but my dad considered it crap. That memory lasted well into my adulthood: Don’t buy pink wine because it’s garbage. Fast forward to five years ago or so, and you’ll find entire rows of rosť in liquor stores and a deep craving for it by wine enthusiasts as we approach summer.
