Congratulations to David Sorenson on completing the quest to visit every currently open Colorado brewery! He has now earned the title of “Colorado Brewery Master,” joining a very small group of beer enthusiasts who have also accomplished this feat.
As he will say later, I first met Dave years ago and we have enjoyed many beers together in that time. I am very happy to welcome him to the Colorado Brewery Master family and, as I have done previously with the other Masters, I was happy to ask him some questions about his journey…
Who is Dave Sorenson? (Tell us a bit about yourself.)
Another fun thing I do is development for the Colorado Brewery List. I met Ryan and Ashley (founders of CBL) in line for the very first WeldWerks Invitational Beer Festival. We were in line directly behind them and, after noticing their CBL t-shirts, I struck up a conversation to talk about how awesome the site was and that I was using it to track all the places I wanted to visit. After using the site so much and getting to know the team, I decided I’d like to give something back and volunteered to help out. One of the features I’m most proud of was the addition of brewery check-ins. It was really nice as I worked through the end of the quest to be able to visualize on the map what places I had left to go.
- Burns Family Artisan Ales
- Casey Brewing & Blending
- Cerebral Brewing
- Knotted Root Brewing
- River North Brewery
This is honestly a hard list to choose, since there’s a ton of great breweries in our state, and I like so many, but I selected these based on the places I go most often that have great beer.
Congratulations again to Dave for finishing “The Quest.” It has been a pleasure working with you on the Colorado Brewery List team. Your help with CBL has been outstanding!
Are there any other Colorado Brewery Masters out there that I have missed? If you have been to every Colorado brewery or are close to doing so, I would love to hear from you!
