And Now For Some Christmas Cheer

We just happened to be in Golden, CO the other day. Golden is the home of the Coors beer brewery and the Colorado School of Mines, founded in 1873 and 1874 respectively. Our son (a student at 'Mines') says that Golden is not a "college town with a drinking problem" but it is a "drinking town with a college problem!"

We took the 'short tour' at Coors - which means a quick walk down the hall toward the tasting room. The hall is lined with cases containing historic information about the brewery and the beer, so it is mildly educational. Apparently our son takes this short tour with some frequency as we will often see an open invitation to meet for "Coors lab" on Facebook!!

We enjoyed our free beer tasting. Each person is allowed up to three, free beers. We enjoyed the moment even more when serenaded by a lively group of college kids. We may, or may not, have known this was going to happen. We may or may not have known one or more of the kids in the group!! (I will protect their desires to remain anonymous!)

I took a video of the presentation, but I couldn't get it to load on blogger. One of the other bystanders shot this video and put it on YouTube. 



It was great fun to see the kids having some fun. The Coors employees seemed to enjoy the presentation as well, as did other beer tasters in the crowd.

I thought I'd share it with you, my readers. It's a fun twist on a traditional carol and certain to bring a smile on this day, so close to Christmas!

  3. Looks like fun to me! I'm guessing this was sung on the third free beer! A college town and three free beers per visit...wow...generous of Coors.

  5. Oh my! Kids were drinking?

    Funny song. I'm amazed that they knew all the words so perfectly. They must visit quite often like you said.

    Beer. It's what's for dinner....and breakfast...and lunch...and snacks.

    The last guy...what a hoot, dropping the F-Bomb. He's had one too many Blue Moons, I think.
