By Lisa Houston and Anne Fitten Glenn for Edible Aspen
Editor’s Note: We asked Edible Aspen Publisher, Lisa Houston, to share the Colorado spread she’ll be making on Super Bowl Sunday to cheer on the Broncos. And no Game Day menu is complete without a quality local brew. Craft beer expert Anne Fitten Glenn gave us a list of the best Colorado picks (plus more widely available brews) for each recipe.
There is no better way for Coloradan’s to celebrate the Broncos going to the Super Bowl than with flavorful and filling appetizers, complimented by craft beer from over 200 of the state’s micro-breweries. Nearly 70% of the state’s agricultural cash receipts are attributed to livestock, which makes for easy access to high-quality beef, pork, lamb and poultry. Meat-centric dishes will most likely dominate throughout Colorado on Sunday.
