Dogs, beer, and Colorado…What could be better?

“Dogs, Beer and Colorado: New Gift Book Showcases All Three”;  That is how the authors describe their new book “BrewDogs” so of course we have to talk about this one on the Colorado Dog Blog.brewdogs

Colorado has a large number of craft beer breweries. In fact over 100 microbreweries turn out enough beer to make Colorado one of the largest beer-producing states in the nation. The annual Great American Beer Festival even makes its home here.

Not surprisingly, where there is a craft brewer, there is usually a brew dog at his side and this book featuring 70 dogs,  tells their stories with beautiful pictures.

“While the idea was not exactly born over a beer, the connection between beer and dogs is not too far ‘fetched’”, said co-authors Brian and Becky Bennett. “We realized that not only are most Colorado breweries dog-friendly, but a lot of beers are named after dogs.” As canine lovers themselves, the idea of a book to celebrate this relationship came to fruition, and turned into a summer long project involving the whole family, including daughters Lauren and Kristen. “With over 100 breweries in Colorado, it wasn’t hard to find an award winning craft beer, and a dog to go with it,” says Bennett. 
Some of the featured pups are Bunny & Marley of Trinity Brewing Co., right here in Colorado Springs !

 The book hit stores today and it is a perfect gift for anyone that loves dogs, Colorado, and beer, so pretty much everyone right?  If you can’t find this in your favorite bookstore check out the BrewDogs website.
