Update: Space Foundation Recognizes the Colorado Beer Map

by Matt Ball on August 11, 2010

The Colorado Springs-based Space Foundation has recognized the Beer Drinker’s Guide to Colorado as a certified Space Imagination Product. The printed 27″ x 39″ map incorporates¬† Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) digital elevation model data into the relief map, which is means enough I guess to make the connection with the foundation’s mission to promote the life-enhancing benefits of space technology.

Information on the map includes the location of breweries and brewpubs, homebrew shops and historic taverns. The map can be purchased at more than 130 retail partners including bookstores, liquor stores, restaurants, brewers, and homebrew suppliers or online at www.beerdrinkersguidetocolorado.com/ at a suggested retail price of $14.95. Every Beer Drinker’s Guide to Colorado comes packaged with the Passport to Free Beer, a book with more than $150 in coupons for free beer, glassware and great deals at breweries, brewpubs and retailers all over the state.

Hey, thanks for the info, but it’s wrong.

The Space Foundation DID NOT update and revise the map. It is published (as were the past three previous editions)by Motion Pixel Lab. Space Foundation only recognizes it as a Certified Space Imagination Product, part of their Space Certification Program. If you’re interested in facts, check out this link:

Cheers and Free Beers!

Thanks for the clarification. Initially I saw the story in the Denver Post with the line that the map “has been released by the Colorado Springs-based Space Foundation.” I went to the Space Foundation site and took a look at what was posted there, but didn’t find any clarification. I was struggling to understand why the Foundation would publish this, but endorsing it certainly makes sense. I’ve now posted an update.
