Pour Me a Cold One

In planning the Big Chili Cook-off, there are a million decisions to be made and a pile of deals to negotiate, always looking for the best price, so that we can end up, when the event is over, with the most money for our firefighters.  There is one decision that is relatively easy, in that the public insists that we stay with the tried and true, and that is in the area of liquid refreshment.  The beer, in other words, is a huge part of the day and Tommyknocker brews, with a side of Coors seems to be the drink of choice.  It is interesting where people put their loyalties, and the kind of beer they drink is no exception.  Attendees and chili cooks, as well as our firefighters want Tommyknocker Brewery from Idaho Springs on tap, partly because it is local and they have been part of the event for years, but equally as important is the quality of the brew, which everyone seems to agree makes Tommyknocker the hands down favorite.  Coors Brewery is the distributor for Tommyknocker, and their efficiency in getting the truck there, fully supplied was a huge help at last year’s event.  We also threw on a tap of Coors Light for good measure and it sold like crazy.  The contribution the beer suppliers make to the event is a large part of the cash that goes into the checks for our Volunteer Fire Departments when the event is over.  Imagine supporting your local Volunteer Firefighters by enjoying a glass of your favorite brew.  America is a wonderful place!
