Colorado Named "The Beer Me State"

Inspired by the Upcoming Great American Beer Festival, Spork Marketing Gives Colorado a New Nickname

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - September 10, 2010) -  In celebration of the upcoming Great American Beer Festival, a Denver Internet marketing company has named Colorado "The Beer Me State." This nickname was chosen because Colorado produces more beer than any other state, it is home to the single largest brewery in the world, and because Denver is home to the Great American Beer Festival.

Beer facts like these can be found on Spork Marketing's clever "Colorado -- The Beer Me State" infographic, which is viewable at http://sporkmarketing.com/colorado-beer-facts.php. The artwork contains original graphic design and unique beer facts relating to Denver and Colorado.

"When you look at all the facts, Colorado really is the 'Beer Me State," said Jason Lancaster, president of Spork Marketing. "Denver's first building was supposedly a saloon. Colorado produces more beer than any other state. Finally, the mayor of Denver -- who is probably the future governor of Colorado -- founded Wynkoop brewery, which helped revitalize lower downtown, bring a baseball team to Colorado, etc. Beer is a big industry in this state."

Colorado has a large and important role in U.S. beer production. Colorado is home to major brewers such as MillerCoors and Anheuser-Busch as well as smaller, award-winning craft brewers such as Great Divide and New Belgium. With approximately 115 breweries in the state, Colorado boasts a wide range of locally-made beers for every palette.

To help celebrate Denver's role in the nation's brewing industry, Spork Marketing has also produced a list of 10 must-see Denver area breweries. The must-see breweries include the world's largest single brewery, MillerCoors in Golden, Colorado, as well as Golden's second largest brewery, Golden City.

Says Lancaster, "I'm a Colorado native, and I'm proud to say that Denver is home to some excellent breweries big and small. If you visit Denver for the upcoming Great American Beer Festival, you owe it to yourself to check out the ten breweries on our list."
