I'm working on a POI file for Colorado Brewpubs and Microbreweries. Looks like the initial list will be a bit over 100 locations throughout the state. I am using MapSource to create waypoints and then I will save them as a .gpx file for the site.
I have found some omissions and added those I knew about, and there is at least one in the list I have which I know is not there any more. So aside from places I have visited, I can't guarantee perfection. I'm hoping to get some good input from members here to help me clean it up once I get it up for distribution. I have 51 locations done so far, with about 60 more to sort through.
I'll post again when I get it finished and uploaded here.
Beerme.com is a good site for initial info on breweries.
I'm looking forward to it! Cheers!
Yes, I am going to my son's in CO very soon and will check out a few and will report any not on your list. They make good beer in CO.
I'm using brewpubzone.com, but I'll check out Beerme once I get something put together. Brewpubzone has them listed alphabetically by state, so it makes it pretty easy to run through the list for Colorado.
I'm not including the big breweries, like the Budweiser and Coors breweries, nor am I including the larger regional breweries at the moment like New Belgium. My intent is strictly to make it easy to locate and try as many of the smaller brewpubs and microbrewery tap rooms as possible.
I did include a couple of larger microbreweries as I found info that they include a taproom/tasting room on site. Many of the microbreweries offer tours by appointment. All have at least a taproom or beer garden, the majority are also restaurants.
Again, any errors, additions or deletions are welcomed. I will try to keep an eye on this thread and make any changes as needed. Hope everyone finds this a useful addition to the POI list.
I think New Belgium should definitely be included. They have a great tasting room and tour. All free. It's a good time, even for non beer drinkers. They may brew a larger amount than many, but it's still got a small brewery feel and philosophy.
It's probably already on your list, but don't forget my favorite... Oskar Blues in Lyons, CO. They brew the best pale ale you'll ever find in a can! Outstanding food, too.
Both are in the file. I also included Odells. Hopefully it will get posted tomorrow by the management.
The file works nicely in my Nuvi 260, so hopefully it is good to go.
The POI file is now available under the "Restaurants" category.
How do I post corrections? I thought I saw somewhere how to submit an updated file, but I can't find it.
I was just scanning through the name tags and noticed:
I'll have to check out some of those breweries I haven't heard of. Thank you.
I live in Summit County in the summer. If you don't already have them I could provide some in Frisco,Breck,Dillon etc
Joe... I'll take any you can give me addresses for. I set up the POI's in MapSource and save them as .gpx so it's easy to make corrections.
I'll make those corrections and update the posted file as soon as I get a chance. I got the information from different websites as well as from DexKnows.com, so I may have not typed the info in the same manner. I'll check it out.
Thanks to both of you.
File updated for Rascal's corrections.
I will load up and see what happens!
