I'm backkkk....4 1/2 days sans laptop is a record for me! Lots of catching up to do. Teddy and I flew out to Denver last Friday morning and made a pit stop as we headed toward Vail in Golden, Colorado.
My golden ticket to the factory tour. I was really impressed with the sustainability throughout the brewing process. Did you know that Coors invented the recyclable aluminum can? That one may come in handy for you in a future trivia game.
Halfway through the tour we had a sample to hold us over.
There were fresh flowers throughout the factory, a tradition started by Mrs. Coors that continues today. At the end of the tour we sampled a few beers, including the Blue Moon Spring Blonde Wheat Ale pictured. Ted's favorite was Colorado Native, which surprise surprise is only available in Colorado!
We went straight from the airport to the factory. (Actually, we stopped at the Colorado Mills Mall first because Teddy forgot one of his bags. Leave it to me to find the mall immediately.) I always feel so "icky" after a flight. Before I left, I happened to read How to Look Your Best After a Flight in the March issue of Allure and found the simple tips really helpful. This time, I dabbed some Vaseline over my moisturizer to keep my skin hydrated and skipped the eye makeup until after I landed. (I love wearing huge shades inside at the airport.) I'm not a huge fan of Vaseline but made an exception. More pics tomorrow!
