Colorado governor’s mansion now equipped with beer taps

SHARE Colorado governor’s mansion now equipped with beer taps

In Illinois, one of the questions candidates for governor get is whether or not they’d live in the governor’s mansion if elected. Well, maybe if they had unlimited draft beer at their fingertips, like in Colorado, it wouldn’t be much of a question.

Colorado governor John Hickenlooper has unveiled beer taps in the mansion, and timed it to happen during Colorado Craft Beer Week, CBS Denver reports. And it sounds like one political party people would like to join.

It’s only appropriate that Colorado has our governor’s mansion be the first mansion to have draft beer because if you look at some of these statistics, we are by any measure at the forefront of the craft brewing industry, said Hickenlooper.
