'Beer Taste on a Champagne Budget' - Five-Star Hotel Brews Its Own Suds

'Beer Taste on a Champagne Budget' - Five-Star Hotel Brews Its Own Suds
Like hosting its own sea lions that occupied the hotel lake; constructing an entire ice stadium; running its own railroad up one of the tallest mountains in America; and offering its well-heeled guests instruction in fly fishing, tomahawk throwing, and falconry.

One thing the resort has never done (until now)? Brew its own beer.

The Broadmoor’s Seven Falls Prospector’s Pick Kölsch is inspired by the Colorado Gold Rush of 1858 and Colorado's "grandest mile of scenery" at Seven Falls, a canyon boasting a magnificent series of waterfalls perhaps best seen from above via the resort’s new series of zip-lines, rope bridges, and rappelling structures.

The beer was made in partnership with veteran-owned (and Colorado Springs locals’ favorite) Red Leg Brewing Company. It will be “tapped” at the resort’s Golden Bee pub on January 17 with a special launch party and then will only be available in cans and on draught at the resort's bars and restaurants (of which there are a staggering 10 restaurants as well as 10 cafés and lounges), at The Broadmoor’s new Wilderness Properties, and occasionally in Red Leg’s cozy taproom.

You don’t get to be 100 without some stories to tell, and now the resort will have its own beer to crack open when reminiscing about those sea lions and the mess they caused…
