In his inaugural address, newly elected Governor of Colorado, John Hickenlooper said “…Plus, we have the best beer…”
While the facts are difficult to refute, it sets the stage for a governorship dedicated to selling beer.
Clearly, the Global Beer Complex has gotten their hooks into Hick. Why else would a former brewpub owner sell his entire stake in his successful chain of bars/micro-breweries? People in other states will certainly think he is referring to Coors and Budweiser (now owned by InBev) who have immense brewing operations in the state.
